7 things everyone should know about pigmentation
Sun exposure triggers pigmentation
Daily UV exposure is the most common cause of sun spots, pigmentation, age spots or liver spots. Inflammation from acne or spots can create lasting dark spots in the skin, also known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Pigmentation occurs when these factors affect the normal production of melanin and change where it’s distributed, resulting in additional melanin appearing where it shouldn’t.
Who can develop pigmentation or brown spots?
Exposure to the sun’s damaging UV rays means we’re all at risk of developing pigmentation throughout our lifetime.
What does pigmentation look like?
In those with fair skin tones, pigmentation appears more red-toned whereas it tends to appear brown in darker skin types. On the surface, pigmentation damage shows itself as the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and an un-even looking skin tone giving away both bad habits and your age. The real damage is occurring beneath the skin’s surface.
Can deep pigmentation be treated?
Yes, there are different options available depending on the type and severity. For more stubborn pigmentation, we can prescribe either a pigment balancing peel or laser following a free skin consultation.
You can fade mild pigmentation:
For mild pigmentation, there’s a number of products available. We recommend SkinCeuticals Advanced Pigment Corrector which is clinically proven to improve the appearance of stubborn pigmentation and improve skin radiance. Kojic acid, licorice extract, niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and lactic acid can all brighten skin.
Those acne scars? They’re pigmentation too
Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation is the name given to skin discolouration following an inflammatory wound, such as acne. Too much melanin is produced during the healing process causing the wounded area to darken.
Freckles are actually pigmentation
Yes they can be genetic, but those cute post-holiday freckles are actually a form of sun damage and pigmentation. A freckle is a heavy deposit of melanin concentrated in one area of skin. Sun triggers melanin production so we always advise adding a broad spectrum physical SPF into your daily skincare routine to prevent them.
