Pigmentation

Uneven pigmentation of some sort affects most people, regardless of bio-ethnic background or skin color. Skin may either appear lighter, or darker than normal, or lack pigmentation at all; there may be blotchy, uneven areas, patches of brown to gray discoloration or freckling. Skin pigmentation disorders occur because the body produces either too much or too little melanin.

What is pigmentation?

Pigmentation/hyperpigmentation is a common skin problem that can affect many people. Hyperpigmentation refers to darker coloured skin areas. They tend to be smaller darker patches of skin, ageing or pigment spots that have been frequently been exposed to the sun. Hyperpigmentation can occur due to hereditary, thin skin under the lash line; giving a person the appearance of dark circles under their eyes. Discolouration is also common when there has been a skin trauma, injury, when pregnant or due to certain birth control pills. Post-inflammatory pigmentation can be related to acne skin conditions.

What should I avoid if I suffer with pigmentation or hyperpigmentation?

UVA and UVB rays from the sun should be avoided. For best results, prevention and treatment of pigmentation/hyperpigmentation should start from an early age. Unfortunately, not all of us are lucky enough to be ‘in-tune’ with the benefits of an anti-ageing routine, until much later in life. However, if you are one of the fortune few, who have  layered up on the sunblock religiously (when your skin is still youthful) and avoided trying to get a tan or use the sunbed, then this might reduce the likelihood of developing sun spots when you’re older. 

When using depigmenting creams be wary of side effects include mild skin irritation and allergic reactions including burning, stinging and dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), dryness and pruritis (itching) of the skin. Due to the strong nature of the skin medicine, start off by gradually applying every 2 – 3 days, until the skin is used to your new skin care routine. Also, the following day, always apply sun block spf 30 or above as some creams can attract the sunlight. Therefore, using during the night as part of your bed time routine, may be more appropriate.

How do you treat pigmentation?

Depigmentation creams are ideal for treating the dark coloured skin known as hyperpigmentation. The three most important medicines include: retinoids (new cell creater & help pigmenting cells penetrate skin), hydroquinone or monobenzyl ether of hydroquinone (stopping melanin production) or corticosteroids (reducing irretated/inflamed skin).
