What is pigmentation?
Pigmentation/hyperpigmentation is a common skin problem that can affect many people. Hyperpigmentation refers to darker coloured skin areas. They tend to be smaller darker patches of skin, ageing or pigment spots that have been frequently been exposed to the sun. Hyperpigmentation can occur due to hereditary, thin skin under the lash line; giving a person the appearance of dark circles under their eyes. Discolouration is also common when there has been a skin trauma, injury, when pregnant or due to certain birth control pills. Post-inflammatory pigmentation can be related to acne skin conditions.
What should I avoid if I suffer with pigmentation or hyperpigmentation?
UVA and UVB rays from the sun should be avoided. For best results, prevention and treatment of pigmentation/hyperpigmentation should start from an early age. Unfortunately, not all of us are lucky enough to be ‘in-tune’ with the benefits of an anti-ageing routine, until much later in life. However, if you are one of the fortune few, who have layered up on the sunblock religiously (when your skin is still youthful) and avoided trying to get a tan or use the sunbed, then this might reduce the likelihood of developing sun spots when you’re older.
How do you treat pigmentation?
Depigmentation creams are ideal for treating the dark coloured skin known as hyperpigmentation. The three most important medicines include: retinoids (new cell creater & help pigmenting cells penetrate skin), hydroquinone or monobenzyl ether of hydroquinone (stopping melanin production) or corticosteroids (reducing irretated/inflamed skin).
