Quick and Safe ways to Reduce Excess Pigmentation

You try your best to get flawless skin. But there’s always some things that you can’t control. Dark spots, age spots, skin tanning, and post-acne blemishes can leave you with an uneven skin tone. Your usual skin care products won’t be able to help you. This is because the problem lies deep underneath your skin. What you need are new techniques for pigment reduction that can get under your skin. Literally!

Melanin and its Mission

Melanin, produced by melanocytes, is a pigment that gives your skin and hair its color. Melanin also absorbs harmful UV radiations from the sun to protect the tissues and organs that lie underneath the skin.

Mission Impossible

But there’s only so much radiation that your skin can handle. If a certain area of the skin is exposed to UV radiation for a long time, it can cause excessive production of melanin in that area leading to hyperpigmentation. The melanocytes do this to save that area of skin from suffering further damage. This leads to an uneven deposit of melanin on the skin, creating dark spots and an uneven skin tone. 

Hyperpigmentation can also occur with age. As your skin gets older, it becomes more susceptible to the sun’s rays. Excess melanin is produced to counteract this, leaving you with age spots on your skin.

Melasma is another condition that causes excessive pigmentation. Melasma affects the skin when the body is suffering from extreme hormonal imbalances. These usually occur in women during pregnancy. Melasma may also be seen in women who use oral contraceptives and are on Hormonal Replacement Therapy medication.

What’s the Antidote?

There are a lot of skincare products that are designed to specifically target this excess melanin. You can use these pigment reducing products to get flawless skin and restore your natural glow.

Dermatologists from Kaya have researched and developed a cream for this purpose. Kaya’s Pigmentation Reducing Complex controls hyperpigmentation. It’ll give you relief from skin dullness. This is an instant acting cream that reduces dark spots, skin tanning, age spots, and pigmentation marks. It has Phytic acid and Azelaic acid which inhibits the production of tyrosinase. Tyrosinase is an enzyme that the body uses to produce melanin. By reducing it the cream prevents further pigmentation of the skin. The cream will also hydrate the skin to make it look soft and healthy.

There is another procedure that can give you even speedier relief from excess pigmentation. Laser treatments are a revolutionary method of pigmentation reduction. Dermatologists at Kaya use the Q-Switched Laser Treatment. It’s a simple procedure that won't take much of your time. The dark spots, age spots or patchy skin are exposed to a beam of light. The specific wavelength of the laser reacts to the pigment in the skin. This breaks up the excess melanin, leaving you with an even skin tone.

The laser is capable of penetrating deep into the skin to effectively break up the excess melanin that is trapped there. It’s also effective on post-acne blemishes. This treatment can also solve your acne issues by killing bacteria that cause pimples. The laser increases the collagen in the skin which can reduce age lines and wrinkles to give you younger looking skin.

Depending upon the intensity of hyperpigmentation, it could take up to 6 to 8 sessions to effectively reduce the dark spots and patchy skin on your skin.
