Hyperpigmentation and sun damage are two of the most commonly occurring skin conditions. The main reason for their prevalence is the fact that you can rarely spot them from the onset. In time, as it happens with any condition, they aggravate. However, they are not something that you have to live with forever. You can correct hyperpigmentation and sun damage. In fact, there are quite a few procedures to help you do that.
Let’s take a look at them:
This procedure involves the removal of the outer dead layer of skin using a spray of fine crystals. Briefly explained: the process stimulates the growth of new cells after 4 to 5 treatments with a professional dermatologist. The newly surfaced layer of skin will show no traces of hyperpigmentation or sun damage. Even more, microdermabrasion is non-invasive, which means that you can have it any time, without fearing pain or downtime.
The Dermaroller is a special tool made of hypoallergenic plastics. Dermatologists use Dermarollers to move around on the skin and create small punctures. It may sound painful, but it’s not! In fact, it’s a great way to correct hyperpigmentation and sun damage. When the Dermaroller pierces the skin cells, your body reacts and produces new collagen and elastin fibers – nature’s best self-healing tools. In the end, your skin will have renewed itself and the hyperpigmentation will be gone.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
During this treatment, your dermatologist will use a laser-based device to dissolve the molecular bonds of the damaged skin cells. This way, a healthier skin layer can resurface and replace the damaged one. Laser resurfacing works wonders for removing stubborn pigmentation. With time, the discoloration diminishes and fresher looking skin surfaces.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
This procedure involves the use of light-based therapy on the skin to stimulate targeted blood vessels. The purpose of the light is to remove discoloration and correct hyperpigmentation. You can expect the dark patches of your skin to diminish in less than 14 days.
Chemical peels are a great way to get rid of heavy skin discoloration or dark patches. Moreover, they are powerful enough to speed up results. Better yet, they go as deep as needed to correct hyperpigmentation.
All of these procedures have pros and cons. While it’s great to be informed and understand what each of them entails, you should never make the choice on your own. Ideally, a doctor should help you choose the procedure that will work best to correct hyperpigmentation and sun damage.
