Forget dark spots and hyperpigmentation with these skin treatments
Flawless skin is the number one desire of everyone but daily the skin has to go through copious frictions like pollution, sunburn, oily weather etc. from achieving that perfect glow.
One major repercussion of these everyday damages is hyperpigmentation or dark spots on the skin. These dark spots are mostly produced due to sun damage that results in added melanin production which brings out an even skin tone leaving some skin areas darker than others.
Nevertheless, there are cures for these stubborn skin marks and here are some beauty treatments that could help you attain the ultimate goal of beautiful, spotless skin.
For minimum to mild hyperpigmentation, it is advised to use a quality skin product containing vitamin C in abundance. With its anti-oxidizing qualities, vitamin C target the dark and effective areas of the skin and helps clear it. “It also inhibits enzymatic processes that produce melanin in the skin, as such it can help to reduce dark coloration of the skin,” says Sumayah Jamal, M.D. of Schweiger Dermatology Group.
For the more damaged and effected skin type, the exfoliating treatment of microdermabrasion is recommended. The treatment is a non-chemical procedure that uses tiny particles to sand away dead skin.
Microdermabrasion is best suited for patients who are dealing with skin discoloration as it rejuvenate the skin follicles resulting in brightened and glowing skin.
Another skin treatment that is used to exfoliation is chemical peel which removes the upper layer of the dead skin diminishing the dull appearance of the skin. As a result of the chemical peel, the skin reflects light better and appears more radiant.
It is also suggested that chemical peels treatment also helps in stimulating collagen production and improve cellular turnover which reduces the appearance of dark spots.
This particular procedure might have its advantages but it comes with a price. Micro-needling, as the name implies uses the procedure of ever so frightening needles piercing into the skin. However, these needles are unlike the normal needles.
The procedure uses medical-grade, stainless steel roller covered with hundreds of tiny spikes that produces a series of micro-injuries to the skin that helps rebuild skin collagen production with the addition of elasticity.
Dermatologists also use additives like hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C compounds or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the skin, once the micro-needling process opens the skin barriers.
