Pigmentation treatment options at Dr.Health Clinic

In the case of skin pigmentation, people often think that an acid peel or laser therapy is enough to remove the discoloration. Acid peels and laser therapy have become popular skin pigmentation treatments. But these overly aggressive procedures can cause irreversible damage. Pigmentation treatment is a delicate process that requires precision and expertise. Too much intervention can make matters worse. Hyperpigmentation must be treated with non-invasive methods. Natural treatments are often preferred for pigmentation. That is because they are skin friendly and do not need invasive medical procedures.

At Dr. Health, we are pioneering using ultraviolet lamps to diagnose and treat pigmentation disorders. Our team of skilled specialists developed a unique process that uses UV light. UV light helps to assess the depth and severity of skin discoloration caused by pigmentation issues. After that, the pigmentation is divided into three categories. The categories are namely epidermal, dermal, and compound types. To plan an effective treatment plan for your concerns, it is a must to know the type. At Dr. Health, we treat epidermal pigmentation with a combination of antioxidants and exfoliating agents. We also use sun protection methods. Compound pigmentation is a deep-seated issue requiring an integrated approach. This involves several treatments to achieve the desired results. Here is a list of therapies we use to treat these pigmentations.

Melanin Decreasing Agents

Melanin Decreasing Agents help decrease excess melanin formation by overactive melanocytes. Melanocytes are specialized cells in the epidermis layer of our skin. They help to produce and store melanin. When these cells become overactive, they secrete excess melanin. This excess melanin can lead to pigmentary disorders.

Tyrosinase Inhibiting Topical Agents

Topical applications are made up of tyrosinase inhibitors. They help reduce the appearance of hyper-pigmented patches. Tyrosinase is an enzyme produced by our bodies and handles producing melanin. Inhibiting this enzyme can help fade any discoloration caused by excess melanin production.

Bioactive Compounds

Bioactive compounds and their derivatives have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Thus making them useful for various skin treatments. Recent studies suggest that these bioactive compounds can be utilized in pigmentation treatment. These compounds exhibit skin-whitening properties by controlling the distribution of melanin.

Antioxidant Peels

Antioxidant peels help to fight free radicals in the body and prevent further pigmentation. Antioxidant peels are preventative by nature. They work to cleanse the skin and target damaged areas.
