Even Out That Uneven Skin Tone

Is pigmentation making your skin look patchy and uneven? Have dark spots and age spots taken over your face? The reasons for pigmentation are many. The underlying cause has to do with the damage that is done to your skin. Simply covering your face from the polluted outdoors or applying sunscreens won’t solve your problem. These will only keep the impurities away from your skin. If pigmentation has already taken a hold of your skin, you might need extra help!

Melanin is a pigment that is found in your skin. They are produced by specialized cells called melanocytes. Melanin is a dark pigment capable of absorbing UV radiations from the sun and stop the excess radiation from seeping into your skin.

But the very same melanocytes can get damaged while they are trying to protect you. If they are frequently exposed to these harmful radiations, the melanocytes will start functioning in an abnormal manner. They will produce excess melanin in certain areas of the face, creating dark patches. This condition is called hyperpigmentation and it leaves you with an uneven skin tone.

What Went Wrong?

The most common cause for hyperpigmentation is overexposure to the sun. People with lighter skin tones are especially prone to this. The melanocytes will start producing excess melanin to keep those dangerous UV rays away from your body. This excess melanin simply gets pushed to the lower levels of the skin, leaving you with a tanned and uneven skin tone. Age spots are another type of dark pigmentation that can occur in people over the age of 50.

Melasma is a type of hyperpigmentation seen in women because of hormonal imbalances. Pregnant women or those on oral contraceptives may develop this condition. Apart from this, women taking Hormonal Replacement Therapy medications may also face this issue.

You Need Something More

The excess melanin that causes dark spots, tanning, and age spots is deposited deep within the skin which is why it can be difficult to treat them. Only creams or treatments that can go deep under the skin can break up the excess melanin that is trapped in there. Conventional skin care products may not give you results. This is why you might need special pigmentation-reducing products to get flawless skin.

Kaya’s Pigmentation Reducing Complex is one such product that you could try. It reduces dark spots, age spots, tanning, and pigmentation marks. This helps prevent skin dullness and uneven skin tone. This is an instant acting cream and reduces the production of melanin to prevent further pigmentation of the skin. The Pigmentation Reducing Complex has extra hydrating properties to moisturize your skin. This will remove the rough texture of the skin and make it feel soft and supple.

If you want even faster results, you could opt for a laser treatment. Don’t worry, this is an entirely simple and hassle-free procedure. Kaya’s Q-Switched Laser Treatment for pigmentation reduction is a quick procedure that gives instant results. In this procedure, the dark spots on the skin are exposed to a beam of light. This laser penetrates deep into the skin, where regular creams or peels normally wouldn’t be able to reach. The excess melanin absorbs the energy from this laser. This causes it to break up, leaving you with an even skin tone. Depending upon the intensity of the excess pigmentation, you might have to take 6-8 sessions to get the best results. You can go back to doing whatever you love immediately after the laser treatment.

Your dark spots, patchy skin, and uneven skin tone isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon. That stubborn melanin is embedded deep under your skin. What you need is a product that can get to them. You should consider trying out specialized pigmentation reducing creams or procedures for best results.
