3 Causes of Skin Pigmentation You Should Know About

Article by Sherrill Daltiz · Sep 10, 2023

At The Brow & Skin Studio, we’re committed to helping you achieve radiant, flawless skin. Our advanced skin analysis, coupled with a range of specialised treatments like Cosmelan Depigmentation, Oxygeneo, and Light Therapy, empowers you to address various skin concerns effectively. We’ll delve into three common causes of skin pigmentation and how to prevent them, along with our recommended services.

1. Sun Exposure

As we dive into summer, it’s important to remember that prolonged sun exposure is a leading cause of skin pigmentation. UV rays trigger the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin colour, which can lead to the development of sunspots, freckles, and uneven skin tone. To combat sun-induced pigmentation, our Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment can be a game-changer. It’s a highly effective method for reducing pigmentation and achieving a more balanced complexion. We do recommend this treatment during the winter months when sun exposure is not so intense. However, it can be used all year round. Additionally, regular use of broad-spectrum sunscreen and protective clothing is crucial to prevent further sun damage.

2. Hormonal Changes

Hormonal fluctuations in women, often experienced during pregnancy, or due to increased levels of oestrogen and progesterone can trigger skin pigmentation (melasma) often confused for sun damage. These changes can result in the development of dark patches, particularly on the face. Our Advanced Skin Analysis, Observ 520, offers a specialised approach to identify hormonal pigmentation concerns. With its detailed imaging and ability to accurately see 2mm beyond the surface, we can determine how many layers of skin are affected and offer products with rejuvenating active ingredients.

3. Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)

Hyperpigmentation is a common response to inflammation or injury to the skin, such as acne, burns, or cuts. It manifests as darkened spots or patches at the site of the injury. The Divine Pro Skin Treatment, offered at our studio, employs advanced technology to stimulate collagen production and promote skin healing. This treatment can effectively reduce the appearance of PIH, restoring a more even skin tone. Additionally, combining it with Light Therapy can enhance the results by targeting hyperpigmentation at a cellular level.

Preventing Skin Pigmentation

Prevention is key when it comes to skin pigmentation. To avoid pigmentation issues, consider these tips:

– Always wear sunscreen with SPF 50 or higher when exposed to the sun.
– Use protective clothing like wide-brimmed hats and sunglasses.
– Maintain a consistent skincare routine with products tailored to your skin type.
– Avoid picking or squeezing blemishes to prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
– Stay hydrated and maintain a balanced diet rich in antioxidants and vitamins.
