What is Skin Pigmentation?

Pigmentation means uneven colour tone or patches on the skin. However, generally speaking ‘pigmentation’ is referred to as hyper or excessive pigmentation of skin of face or of body. It can be generalised darkening or patchy spots like darkening.

Various reasons of excess pigmentation are

  • Melasma
  • Freckles (sun spots)
  • Ageing
  • Post inflammatory etc.

Excess Sun exposure and Hormonal imbalance are the major culprits and sun protection is necessary in all pigmentation treatments.

  • What is the estimated cost of the procedure?
  • How often will I need to receive treatment to clear my skin of all pigmentation?
  • What are the common side effects or complications associated with the procedure?
  • How can I prepare for the treatment/procedure?
  • How long is the recovery time associated with my procedure?
  • Do you have before-and-after photos of other patients?
  • What are the risks involved in this treatment?
  • What should I expect after the procedure is performed? (i.e., short-term and long-term effects)

Melasma Treatment

This is typically a mask like brownish pigmentation on common areas of cheek, nose and forehead.

Melasma is more commonly seen in females than males. It is also known as “cloasma” that is mask of pregnancy as it commonly develops during pregnancy and breast feeding.

The exact causes of melasma are unknown. The sun, UV rays, hormonal imbalances are known to make it worse.

The treatment of melasma can be cumbersome as the deeper dermal component is very resistant and does not respond to usual topical creams or lotions.

There is a high chance of recurrence if treatment is abruptly stopped.

Variety of skin peels lighten or remove melasma:

  • Lightening Peel
  • Cosmelan Peel
  • Nomelan Peel
  • TCA Peel
Fractional Q switched Nd-Yag lasers are known to temporarily lighten the melasma but the results are unpredictable.CO2 resurfacing laser can treat the superficial melasma but the deeper component can be resistant to all treatment lines. A few have also tried Glutathione injections (injectable lightning anti oxidant) but no scientific data available and thus risk / benefit ratio has to be judged.

Creams: Huge numbers of lightening creams are available for treatment. Consult Dr. Sharvari Pandit to know the cream and the sunscreen that may suit you.

Oral Antioxidants, Glutathione, Tranexemic acid, Oral Vitamin C gives added benefits for melasma.
