Hyperpigmentation


  • Information

Pigmentation means  the colouration of the skin ,  Our body contains a pigment known as  melanin which determines the colour of our skin, hair and eyes.

Many patients may begin to notice the presence of tan to brown to gray patches on their skin, which are often worsened with sun exposure. This condition is called hyperpigmentation and affects both men and women. It can occur in all skin colors, but is typically more common in patients with darker skin tones.

Hyperpigmentation occurs when the pigment producing cells of the skin, called melanocytes, begin to produce too much pigment. Hyperpigmentation can appear anywhere on the skin. Common causes include inflammation and/or trauma on the skin, medications, genetics and hormonal changes. Pigmentation that follows trauma to the skin, such as a cut, burn, abrasion or surgical incision, or inflammation in the skin, such as after a rash, acne or severe skin dryness, is known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

The effects can also become more obvious as we age and if left untreated and unprotected can worsen. Pigmentation that follows trauma to the skin, such as a cut, burn, abrasion or surgical incision, or inflammation in the skin, such as after a rash, acne or severe skin dryness, is known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.  Medications that can cause hyperpigmentation may cause more widespread hyperpigmentation.

As sun exposure worsens hyperpigmentation it is important to protect the skin with sunscreen SPF 50+ on a daily basis. Treatment often begins with a skin care regimen composed of a daily sunscreen, moisturizers, and skin care brighteners. Some of the more common skin brighteners include hydroquinone, vitamin C, azelaic acid, tretinoin and kojic acid.

Why treat hyperpigmentation? 

Physical, emotional and social reasons for treating hyperpigmentation include:

  • Improved appearance.
  • Enhanced self-esteem.
  • Promotion of better skin health.

Treatment options available for Hyperpigmentation.

  • Skin peels
  • Microdermabrasion
  • DermaPen- Micro-needling

SKIN PEELS
We used  number of skin peels that are suitable to treat pigmentation for your skin type and tone, specially designed for Asian, African and olive skin which is more sensitive and has darker hyperpigmentation.  The treatment encourage natural exfoliation and remove imperfections, dead skin cells and reduced the pigmentation.

  • Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a safe, controlled treatment that intensely exfoliates and resurfaces the skin, a fine jet of abrasive crystals will be passed over the skin. Dead skin particles will be abraded away and a vacuum action will remove the debris. This dual action will both resurface the skin and stimulate the blood flow, reduced the pigmentation and encouraging the skin to rejuvenate itself and produce collagen and elastin.

DermaPen ™ -Microneedling:-
Dermapen is an ideal therapy of dermal pigment disorders when used with lightening agents. We offer advanced DermaPen therapy to reduced hyperpigmentation, all procedure performed by our expert doctor in our Centre

What can I say about Dr. Rizvi. I read some of her outstanding reviews before meeting her but having had a session to... remove a couple of moles I can tell you words cannot do her justice.She is obviously highly skilled but also creates such a warm and caring atmosphere. You feel completely looked after and you can tell this comes from a place of her wanting to use her talents to help people in the best way she can. She truly is an incredible woman and I can’t recommend her enough!read more

What a wonderful caring sweet doctor. Professional and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable and respected. I was given... clear honest answers when I had questions. For the first time ever I was looking forward to seeing a doctor for the second time for stitches removal. I would highly recommend first health medical. The staff are all so friendly and accommodating. I’m still in awe with the doctor, she was just such a lovely woman with positive and warm energy, I felt in safe hands when I was having minor surgery. I can not praise this centre enough!read more
