Understanding hyperpigmentation!

Hyperpigmentation is a skin related issue that makes your skin produce more melanin. Melanin is the pigment that provides skin colour and when produced in large amounts, it can cause dark spots or patches on your skin.

There are several types of hyperpigmentation that people usually suffer from. Some of these types are –

  • Sunspots

Each of these issues is categorized under hyperpigmentation. So, whatever it is that you are suffering from, there is a solution.

Now that we know what hyperpigmentation is and what different forms of hyperpigmentation is there, let’s discuss what you can do to get rid of the problem.

We at Corrective Skincare have the best treatment for hyperpigmentation which involves peel treatments, micro-needling, and more. Here, we are going to discuss each of the treatments you can consider to get rid of the hyperpigmentation issue.

1. Lightening creams

Lightening creams are known as the over-the-counter treatment for hyperpigmentation. Many of these creams are available in stronger prescription forms. Using these lightening creams once or twice a day can help you get rid of hyperpigmentation.

Ingredients of lightening creams that make it highly effective –

  • Liquorice extract
  • N-acetylglucosamine
  • Hydroquinone
  • Vitamin B-3

Best For – These creams are effective for people who are suffering from flat spots like melasma or for those with age spots.

Note: Although this treatment is effective it is also time-consuming.

2. Face Acids

Another effective solution to the problem is face acids or skin acids. This works by exfoliating or shedding the topmost layer of the skin, clearing it as a result. This is the treatment that will help clear the skin. So, if you are looking for hyperpigmentation treatment, face acid is one of the effective ones.

3. Chemical Peel Treatments

This is one of the strongest chemical-based hyperpigmentation treatments that is often used to treat hyperpigmentation. They tend to penetrate the middle layer of the skin that is known as the dermis to produce more dramatic results. There are several different types of chemical peels that are available in the market for you to select. The selection of which peel treatment to choose depends on the concern that you are fighting. Be it acne, ageing signs, and more, everything can be treated by chemical peels.

4. Laser Peels

A laser peel is a treatment that uses a targeted beam of light to reduce hyperpigmentation. There are two types of lasers – ablative and non-ablative. Where ablative laser is known to be intense there the non-ablative ones are known to target the dermis to promote collagen growth as well as tightening effects.
