Skin pigmentation visibly ages us. Actually 80-90% of premature skin ageing is due to the UV rays, causing sagging skin, wrinkles and yes all kinds of pigmentation. It something most of us would rather get rid of as we always strive for flawless, even skin. However, because it appears deeper in the skin it’s also one of the harders skin issues to reverse. Today, we share with you the top anti-pigmentation treatments selected on the basis of how quickly you can revive your skin and reduce or eliminate skin pigmentation.
Laser pigmentation removal
Laser pigmentation removal works by directing high concentrations of light into pigment problem areas, causing the targeted imperfections to absorb the heat, darken and flake off in a matter of days.
This leaves you with an evener skin tone and a brighter appearance. We suggest you first book a consultation with a clinic in your area so that you can learn more about the treatment, pricing and if it’s suitable for you.
Photo-facial Laser Treatment
You find this name a lot on the internet but it has nothing to do with laser. It also goes under the name of Photorejuvenation sometimes called a photo-facial. It uses light energy, but it’s not a true laser treatment because the light isn’t concentrated into a high-powered beam. Instead, photo rejuvenation uses pulses of intense light to reach the deeper layers of the skin. New, more advanced and powerful machines, can now provide more effective and comfortable photo-rejuvenation treatment for a number of skin conditions, including:
• sun damage and sunspots
• wide areas of pigmentation on the face, chest, arms and backs of the hands
• small, individual pigmented areas (also known as age spots)
• rosacea, inflammation and redness to the cheeks and face
• broken or thread veins
• skin tightening.
Photo-facial laser treatment can be combined with light facial peels to enhance and boost the results.
Medical grade chemical peels are a super-effective way of reducing the visible appearance of pigmentation, providing you with a clearer complexion. The fundamental function is to dissolve the dead cells on the surface of the skin. So chemical peels can work wonders for acne, fine lines, moisture retention as well as pigmentation. Often, multiple peels are necessary, but there are some peels where you require only one treatment. If you want to prolong the results of the peel ensure you add to your daily skincare liquid exfoliants or retinol-based products and a hydrating serum.
Microdermabrasion treatment can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, superficial blemishes and marks, improve congested skin, mild pigmentation problems and generally become part of an anti-ageing treatment routine. Microdermabrasion is suitable for the face and most areas of the body. Popular areas for treatment include the face, neck and chest.
Prevention is the key.
All those treatments are effective but they can be expensive and ultimately require supporting treatment afterwards if you want to maintain the results. To treat further any skin unevenness you can also use skincare develop to fight skin pigmentation. Sun protection will help to prevent pigmentation in the first place but it’s crucial after treatment. After any of these treatments your skin can be more sensitive to the sun and damage related to sun exposure. Finally, no product can completely reverse the damage that UV rays can cause. Prevention is better and the cheapest beauty investments you can find.
