How to Reduce Skin Pigmentation
Table of Contents
What Is Skin Pigmentation?
Skin pigmentation occurs from the overproduction of melanin pigment; it’s a biological hiccup which can take its toll on a person’s confidence. Melanin is the pigment which determines the colour and tone of a person’s skin, hair and eye colour and more often than not, the pigment is imbalanced.
To recognise this imbalance, areas of the skin may look lighter (hypopigmentation) or darker (hyperpigmentation) as a result of the overproduction. This can get worse during pregnancy for women (Jenna Tatum Dewan even suffered from pigmentation when she was pregnant!) when more oestrogen and progesterone hormones are produced. Overexposure of UV rays can also lead to skin and pigmentation conditions such as melasma, too.
What Skin Pigmentation Treatments Are There?
There are several treatments that we can provide you with, which will help even your skin tone and reduce skin pigmentation. Keep reading to learn more about these pigmentation treatments so that you can choose the right one for you.
Glutathione IV For Skin Pigmentation
IV Drip Treatments have been developed by experienced doctors, nutritionists, naturopaths and dieticians. What happens is our very highly experienced clinicians safely administer a client with high dose concentrations of vital nutrients, minerals, vitamins and amino acids that the body essentially needs. IV Drips are a great way to boost your overall health, as well as improve the skin’s texture and appearance.
Glutathione is the body’s most important antioxidant and is responsible for fighting diseases, especially those related to ageing. By having a Glutathione drip, you can brighten the skin’s appearance and improve the overall complexion of it by instigating the production of the enzyme responsible for pigmentation. Here’s everything you need to know about IV.
Perfect Derma Peel For Skin Pigmentation
This peel blends glutathione, kojic acid, TCA, salicylic acid, phenol, retinoic acid, minerals and vitamins… a might list, we know! Kojic acid is an intense lightening agent which increases collagen and elastin production, creating brighter and tighter skin. This research even shows that when used properly, the derma peel can fill an important therapeutic need in the aesthetic clinic.
TCA, phenol and retinoic acid reduce wrinkles and ultimately, help correct pigmentation. Then the salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation; the combination of all of these ingredients create unique, never-seen-before results. Use this treatment every six weeks to have glowing skin that never dims. Here’s more information on the Derma Peel.
Cosmelan Skin Peel For Skin Pigmentation
The Cosmelan with Dermamelan Peel treatment is again, perfect for discolouration and pigmentation of the skin, and is the world’s leading depigmenting solution; it uses multi-ingredient chemicals to reduce the appearance of unwanted blemishes and dark spots. Dermamelan cream is world-renowned in that it is the most effective product in lightening the skin! Our unique peel treatment gives you results after just a one-week post-peel; with skin looking brighter and smoother.
The complexion of your skin will take a complete turnaround; reducing the pigmentation and making you look years younger almost instantly. After a few weeks, your skin improves even more, with a healthier glow which will continue to improve for up to six weeks. Not to mention, this peel carries minimal side effects and no downtime, making this an exceptional treatment for depigmentation. Here’s everything you need to know about the Cosmelan Peel.
PRXT33 For Skin Pigmentation
The PRXT33 is an outstanding procedure that micro-injects amino acids into the face and neck. Even though this sounds like the use of needles, PRXT33 was designed to give the same rejuvenation as an injection, but with a peel instead. With no downtime whatsoever after this treatment, you can go straight back to working, relaxing or enjoying life without a hitch.
This facial peeling procedure uses Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA), a non-toxic chemical which causes the top layer of the skin to dry up and peel off; making this a highly popular procedure for depigmentation. The PRXT33 penetrates the dermis and activates the skin’s regeneration process without damaging the epidermis. This unclogs and brightens the skin, while also reducing the appearance of pigmentation.
PRX is designed to encourage the production of fibroblasts without the cause of inflammation or damage to the skin, and it is suitable for all skin types. Here’s everything you need to know about PRXT33.
LED Light Therapy For Skin Pigmentation
While UV lights may be damaging to the skin, LED Light Therapy is the all-new popular treatment for rejuvenating the skin instead. This revolutionary technology comes in four different colours here at Aesthetics of Liverpool, (green, blue, yellow and red) with each colour wavelength offering treatments for various skin conditions.
If you suffer from pigmentation, then this treatment works by using the wavelengths of light energy to penetrate the skin’s underlying tissue to trigger the formation of new skin cells that’ll even out the skin. Other biochemical mechanisms are also triggered, leaving the skin brighter and smoother. Here are the full details on LED Light Therapy.
Precision Lift Skin Pen For Skin Pigmentation
This micro-needling device is perfect for reducing the appearance of pigmentation, as well as fine lines, wrinkles and scars on the face and body. It creates thousands of controlled micro-injuries in the dermis which trigger the production of fibroblasts again, but without leaving a scar. This is a tried and tested solution to pigmentation issues, and can be carried out with minimal downtime afterwards!
This practice is carried out by world-leading surgeons, dermatologists and medical professionals; this is due to it being applicable for all skin types and tones. It also uses the only micro-needling device to be approved by the FDA. Here’s all you need to know about the Skin Pen.
E-Light for Skin Pigmentation
The E-Light treatment combines RF and IPL technology within a handheld device that treats skin pigmentation effectively. It can be applied to the face, cheek, neck and hands and has been proven to work in the reduction of irregular skin pigmentation.
It works by the IPL energy preheating the target area, creating a thermal path for the radiofrequency energy to travel. The electromagnetic energy is applied directly to the areas of depigmentation to promote the formulation of new skin cells by breaking down the existing ones; leaving impressive results that bring your skin tone to one shade. A non-painful and effective solution for an even skin tone.
