Face Pigmentation and How to Treat it
Skin color is established by the pigment known as melanin. Sometimes pigment loss can occur, either temporarily or permanently. When this happens, the affected area is lighter in color than the rest of the body, which also becomes an aesthetic problem. This loss is due to either the melanocytes having stopped working and not producing melanin, or the melanocytes having been completely destroyed.
On the other hand, there can also be a case of hyperpigmentation where it happens the complete opposite and melanin is produced in excess in certain spots in the skin. Hyperpigmentation results in flat, dark brown to black areas of skin, which can vary in size and shape. These are the main cause why people seek pigmentation removal in Singapore to even their skin tone.
Like we mentioned there are two different types of pigmentation changes in our face either by excess or loss, so we will go through some of the main causes in both cases.
Pityriasis alba: It is a very common disorder in children, but it can also appear in adults. It usually occurs on the face and arms, where the skin becomes redder and scaly. As the rash begins to heal, white patches appear in its place, which, thankfully, disappear over time.
Infection: Fungal infections, such as pityriasis versicolor, can cause dry, scaly patches that are lighter in color than the rest of the skin and may also be itchy. According to dermatologists, they can appear anywhere on the body as with viral infections, for example chickenpox, which once cured can cause hypopigmentation.
Scarring: when the skin suffers severe scarring, it is often accompanied by loss of pigment, which also becomes more susceptible to the action of UV rays. Therefore, without the necessary sun protection, these areas are at high risk of burning or even developing skin cancer.
Sun exposure: It is the number one cause of hyperpigmentation, since sunlight triggers melanin production in the first place. Melanin acts as the skin’s natural sunscreen by protecting it from harmful UV rays, which is why people get a tan in the sun. However, excessive exposure to the sun can alter this process, leading to hyperpigmentation.
Hormones: are the main cause of a particular type of hyperpigmentation known as melasma or chloasma. It is particularly common among women, as it is believed that they are produced when the female sex hormones, estrogen and progesterone, stimulate the overproduction of melanin when the skin is exposed to the sun.
Best Treatments for Face Pigmentation
There is no doubt that there are many treatments for this cosmetic problem that affects many people on different scales. Most of them are non-invasive making them ideal for everyone.
Facial peels – They involve applying an acidic solution to the face to remove the top layers of skin. These chemicals cause the skin to blister and eventually exfoliate, revealing new, uniformly pigmented skin underneath, it’s so efficient it has become one of the top pigmentation removal treatments in Singapore.
Laser therapy – They have virtually the same effect, but tends to be more precise, as the dermatologist has more control over the intensity of the treatment. It consists of practically erasing the affected areas with high-energy light. Gentle treatments work only on the epidermis (surface layer), while more intense treatments can penetrate deeper layers of the skin.
Creams– Of course you can always opt for cream which main focus is to even out the skin tone, they take longer from weeks up to months to see any visible changes but you can do it yourself from home.
