Let me ask you a question. Do you cringe when skin discolorations or brown spots start to appear on your face out of nowhere? We know just how you feel.
Over the years, our skin is constantly being exposed to damaging UV rays from the sun. And as we age, our skin tend to lose its natural glow and uneven skin tone starts to appear. Many of these skin spots can be embarrassing and often cited as one of the biggest skin care anxieties, together with aging skin and acne.
So what is it that causes skin pigmentation and what is the best way to address this beauty concern?
What causes pigmentation?
Melanin is a pigment that gives skin its color. Pigmentation occurs when there is too much of melanin produced by our skin. Because of the melanin release, the skin will appear either dark or discoloured. There are several internal and external factors that can affect the production of melanin in our body such as: (internal) hormonal fluctuations caused by pregnancy, certain medications and (external) excessive unprotected exposure to UV rays. Other causes include post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation such as pimple marks or skin burns. The deeper the pigment, the tougher it is to treat.
What are my treatment options?
The very first step is to discuss your condition with a certified medical doctor at BH Medical Aesthetics. We will assess the type and size of pigmentation your skin is dealing with and advise the best pigmentation removal options tailored to your needs.
