PIGMENTATION

WHAT TYPE DO YOU HAVE?

Freckles, Uneven Skin Tone, Melasma, Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PHIP),  Solar Lentigo,  or Post-inflammatory Erythema (PHI)? 

When explaining pigmentation concerns it is essential to help you understand your pigmentation condition and provide appropriate treatment options and care.

The process of melanin synthesis and distribution is called melanogenesis. An increase of pigment occurs when an excess of melanin  (brown pigment) is present and presents as an uneven disbursement of pigment in the skin. Various factors can contribute to pigmentation issues, including sun exposure, scaring, hormonal changes, aging, and skin inflammation.

Addressing pigmentation concerns typically involves using specialised skincare products and treatments that can help regulate melanin production, exfoliate dead skin cells, and promote a more even skin tone. Some of these treatments may include topical creams, serums, chemical peels, LED and laser therapies.

However, it’s essential to keep in mind that everyone’s skin is unique, and the best approach to treating pigmentation concerns may vary from person to person. As your skin care professionals, we will work closely with you to assess your skin condition, recommend suitable products and treatments, and create a personalised skincare plan that addresses your specific pigmentation concerns effectively.

Additionally, preventing further pigmentation issues is crucial. To protect your skin, and prevent further pigment production, it’s essential to use sunscreen daily, avoid excessive sun exposure, and maintain a consistent skincare routine tailored to your skin’s needs.

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have, and together, we’ll work towards achieving your skin goals and promoting a healthy, radiant complexion.

Pigmentation Treatments:

Did you know there are two forms of pigmentation, ‘passive’ and ‘inflammatory’? Pregnancy, hormonal imbalances, and medications are the main contributors to ‘passive’ (internal) pigmentation. In turn, ‘inflammatory’ (external) pigmentation is caused by damage or irritation.

Unique in its cause, Pigmentation is the result of the skin’s defensive mechanisms (immunity) being wrongly triggered. It can often feel like there is no reason for the appearance of pigmentation and this can be incredibly frustrating. With the help of one of DMK’s knowledgeable Skin Technicians, pigmentation can be revised, managed, and prevented.

Melanin cells that generate pigment are a defensive mechanism created by the body to protect the DNA strands within a cell from ultraviolet radiation (UVR). However, when the skin and body systems are dysfunctional any form of trauma can stimulate melanin production.

Stress and anxiety is also a culprit, increasing inflammation in the skin and body, causing pigmentation to appear on the skin.

Post-inflamed Hyper pigmentation (PIH) is what occurs when the skin experiences physical trauma such as a wound, acne, sun exposure or even constant friction. It may not become visible immediately in some cases. Years of sun exposure without any visible signs of damage can suddenly appear in the form of age spots, usually on the hands, arms, neck and face. This hidden pigmentation can form from as early as fifteen years of age.

Successful pigmentation revision requires a treatment program and consistent use of the DMK Home Prescriptive products. There is no magic bullet in the revision of pigmentation. Prevention is always easier than revision however as the melanosomes can be spread through all three layers of the skin being as deep as the hypodermis. This can make it extremely difficult even with transdermal delivery systems, products, and laser treatments to penetrate far enough to revise the pigmentation. Remodeling peels are the most effective way to revise pigmentation working to draw the melanosomes up, out, and off with the new skin forming underneath. It will require a holistic approach to skin revision treatments that will look at both hormone levels and any dysfunctions within the skin
