Skin pigmentation occurs as a result of melanocyte (pigment-producing cells) build-up. The excess melanin that is produced results in darker skin tone and pigmentation. Examples include freckles (sun-spots), lentigos (age-spots) and melasma. While common, it is fortunate that there are several safe and effective treatment options.
Treatment Options :
The Q-switched Nd:YAG laser is one of the most popular lasers used in the treatment of pigmentation. A beam of high powered laser is directed at skin pigments, where it specifically targets melanin, fragmenting large pigment particles into smaller ones and allowing the body’s immune system to gradually remove the pigment particles.
Pico-laser represents the latest technology in pigment treatment. By delivering a very high powered laser beam to the pigment, it pulverizes large pigment particles into micro-particles, while protecting the surrounding skin and reducing risks of complications. A combination of Q-switched and Pico-lasers may be used for better results. This innovative device can also be used in the treatment of acne scars and tattoos removal.
Long Pulsed Laser
Long pulsed lasers have an important role in the treatment of melasma, as it treats the vascular (blood vessel) component of melasma. By targeting the vessels in addition to the pigment, we will get improved clinical results and fewer relapses. To achieve the best results, it is recommended to combine laser treatments with topical preparations and oral antioxidants.
Professional Mela Peels
Medical grade chemical peels can be used in the treatment of various types of pigmentation including melasma, as well as post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Our preferred peel for melasma is the Mela Peel from Dermaceutic Laboratories, which is classified as a medium depth peel. Its ingredients, which include mandelic acid, idebenone, emblica, retinol and salicyclic acid, help in lightening and brightening.
