What is Pigmentation?

Pigmentation is a skin disorder that describes the skin color that results from the deposit of the melanin pigment produced by the melanocytes (specialized cells responsible for the skin color). Skin Pigmentation is caused by harmful or damaged melanocytes that affect the formation of melanin. These disorders may result in either unusual darkening of the skin or lightening of the skin, depending on the amount of melanin pigment produced.

If the melanocyte is exposed to a source of trigger over and over again, it may become permanently damaged and remain in an overactive mode. This means that the cell will always produce excess melanin, even when the trigger is removed.

Skin pigmentation disorders cause not only just physical malfunction but also make you feel aesthetically unappealing and feel less attractive. It could undermine your self-confidence and bring you a lot of anxiety. Whatever the reason for your skin pigmentation, whether inherited or environmental, you should only choose to receive treatment at a reputable skin clinic.

Causes of Pigmentation

Both internal and environmental sources can cause increased melanin production and skin pigmentation problems. A dermatologist should be consulted to pinpoint the exact cause.
Here are a few of the usual causes of pigmentation;

External factors

  1.  Injury: Inflammation can develop at the site of a skin injury, causing bruises, poor hair removal technique, or depilatory products. Hyperpigmentation of the skin is the result of increased melanin production.
  2. Medication: Unwanted pigmentation can be a side effect of some drugs, such as tetracycline antibiotics or medications used in chemotherapy.
  3. Sun exposure: Both long-wave and short-wave ultraviolet radiation from the sun reaches us. UVA photons can penetrate the skin deeply and increase melanin formation.

Internal Factors

  1.   Hormonal Fluctuations:  The hormonal changes may be brought on by taking birth control tablets or becoming pregnant.
  2.  Hereditary Factors:  This is one of the main elements influencing skin pigmentation.

Types Of Skin Pigmentation

Pigmentation treatment options at Dr. Health Clinic

When it comes to treating skin pigmentation, the common notion is that an acid peel or a laser therapy will just peel off the pigmentation from the skin surface leaving behind a fair and glowing skin. However, irritation due to overly aggressive, invasive procedures can only make skin pigmentation worse. Hyper pigmentation responds best to natural, non-invasive, and skin friendly methods.
At Dr. Health, An ultraviolet lamp is used to diagnose pigmentation disorders and determine the depth and severity of the pigmentation. The pigmentation is then divided into epidermal, dermal, and compound types. This is important as it helps to formulate an appropriate line of treatment. Antioxidants, exfoliating agents, and sun protection methods usually work best for epidermal and dermal forms of pigmentation. Because of its deep-seated nature, the compound type of pigmentation however is of the resistant type and requires an integrated approach involving several therapies like below.

Frequently Asked Questions for Pigmentation Treatment

Hyperpigmentation causes the darkening of your skin and makes its overall appearance worse. Be it the neck, face, or hands, it occurs in any part of your body. When your skin becomes hyperpigmented, you will notice various dark patches or spots on your skin that appear uneven.

Melasma is caused by a varying combination of factors like hormonal changes, sun exposure and hereditary tendency. People with Melasma often always have someone in the family suffering the same. It is commonly found among women suffering from hormonal disorders like polycystic ovarian disease, thyroid and those who are on oral contraceptives. It also develops during and after pregnancy and in the pre-menopausal phase. Exposure to sun may aggravate the pigmentation.
Melasma often has serious psychological effects on a woman’s self esteem. One of my patients felt as though she was wearing a masquerade mask which could never be taken off. Patients resort to concealing the pigmentation with make-up. However, as melasma progressively darkens, concealing also becomes difficult.
Although it was earlier perceived that fair skin is the ultimate idea of beauty, today’s generation is much more realistic. Their idea of beauty is an even-toned, clear & naturally glowing complexion rather than just a fair complexion. Uneven skin tone refers to skin which is uneven in color and texture. The common causes are Seborrheic eczema, worm infection, vitamin deficiency, acne or allergy to hair dyes. Uneven skin is seen with freckles, age spots, melasma (butterfly shaped pigmentation across nose, cheeks & forehead) or with premature ageing or rough & coarse skin which feels like leather. Prolonged acne leads to blotches which contribute to uneven skin. Poorly done treatments like facials, laser therapy, chemical peels can also cause uneven skin tone.
Yes, the appearance of brown spots on the face is an indication of skin ageing. The 3 commonest forms of brown spots on the face are freckles, solar lentigenes and melasma. Sun exposure, hormones and heredity are its biggest triggers. Freckles, also called Plural Ephilides are caused due to localized accumulation of melanin in keratinocytes. Solar Lentigines are larger brown spots found on the face and arms and are caused due to localized increase in the number of melanocytes. They appear during middle-age and thus also called age spots. Melasma is the brown patch that appears on the nose and cheeks and forms a butterfly-shaped pattern on the face. None of these spots respond to external applications alone. They respond better when the internal factors are addressed and treated.

Pigmentation disorders are diagnosed using an ultra violet lamp which establishes the severity and depth of pigmentation. The pigmentation is then categorized into epidermal, dermal and compound types. The epidermal and dermal forms of pigmentation usually respond best to antioxidants, exfoliating agents and sun protection methods. Because of its deep-seated nature, the compound type of pigmentation however is of the resistant type and requires an integrated approach involving several therapies.

Treating Melasma is not like treating just any other form of pigmentation. The common notion is that all kinds of pigmentation can be just abraded off by peeling or scrubbing the skin surface. However constant irritation due to scrubbing can only make Melasma worse. Melasma responds best to non- invasive methods. For Mild cases over-the-counter products which help in reducing the activity of the pigment producing cells can help. For severe cases a combination approach is generally more effective. For those who suffer from sun allergies, a broad-spectrum sunscreen usage is important for successful management of Melasma.

The duration of treatment may vary depending on the severity & depth & chronicity of the pigmentation. When it comes to treating a patient with Melasma, it is important to adhere to the three Ps for maximum results – Patience, Persistence and Precaution. Patience is necessary as there is no magic medicine to peel the Melasma from the surface. Melasma responds better when it is treated both internally and externally. Persistence is necessary in the form of ongoing skin care to maintain the results of the treatment and prevent relapses. Precaution is the third important thing. Exposure to sun and harsh chemical peels need to be avoided as they trigger inflammation and worsen Melasma. Following the three Ps can bring better and lasting results.

Melasma is caused by over-activity of the melanocytes which secrete excess melanin. The excess melanin gets deposited in the outer layer of the skin causing butterfly shaped pigmentation on the face. Though the excess melanin can be removed from the surface, the overactive melanocytes secrete it again making the patch reappear. This becomes a never-ending cycle. To treat Melasma one needs to thus stabilize the overactive melanocytes than merely keep peeling the skin from the surface.

Treatment for skin pigmentation depends on multiple factors such as severity, skin condition, types of pigmentation, lifestyle factors, etc. As a leading skin clinic for pigmentation treatment in Bangalore, we ensure that all our treatments are 100% side effect free. Apart from this, you can also cure pigmentation through several other ways, including sunscreen, face wash, moisturizers, chemical peels, and many others. 

Well, most people think that pigmentation tends to go after time. But, it’s certainly not true. In the majority of cases, pigmentation treatment is something that becomes necessary for removing pigmentation permanently.
