“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.”
The stresses of our daily routine can get the best of us. While we strive to make the most of each day, the tiredness can wear us out, and this includes our skin. In fact, much of the hustles we’ve been through are evident in the way our skin ages.
The skin gets its colour from melanin, which is a substance made by skin cells. When these skin cells get damaged, they end up producing more melanin than is required. Unhealthy skin cells can result from acne, hormonal changes, medications, deficiency of Vitamin B12 and Folic acid, sun damage, and a host of other problems. As a result, melanin clumps together, causing that specific area to appear darker, and hence, hyperpigmented.
There’s no need to carry on with ageing skin cells while you work hard every day for a better living. You deserve to look and feel your best, and one of the ways is through skin care. In this post, we’ll take you through the five most effective treatments for skin pigmentation and discolouration.
Five treatments for skin pigmentation and discolouration
Considered one of the best dermatologists in Ahmedabad, Dr Shailee Banker treats her clients with all the care their skin needs. At Banker Skin and Smile, a diverse set of treatments are offered for pigmentation and discolouration. We’re here to share these five common treatments to get rid of those nagging age spots and more.
- Erbium Glass Laser
The Erbium Glass Laser Treatment employs fractional technology to lighten the skin. The process involves distributing varying heat levels in the skin to cover a large surface area. It efficiently treats acne scars, complete rejuvenation of the skin, reduces wrinkles and helps minimise the side effects of existing skin treatments.
- Chemical Peel
The chemical peel treatment in Ahmedabad is considered one of the best techniques used at Banker Skin and Smile. It helps to improve the texture of the skin. The peel solution is applied to the affected area for a few minutes. In the case of strong peels, it is washed a few minutes after application. In the case of stay-on peels, the solution is washed off hours after its application.
Chemical peels help in treating uneven skin tones, sun damage, acne scars, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and so on.
Hydrafacial is a technique that uses hydro microdermabrasion to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. The treatment is designed to brighten the complexion, and reduce the appearance of large pores and fine lines. It also treats some forms of acne. Best dermatologist doctor in Ahmedabad, Dr Shailee Banker reassures that the Hydrafacial treatment does not penetrate through the skin’s layers. This makes it a safe treatment for all skin types and tones. You can find out the Hydrafacial treatment cost at our clinic.
MNRF treatment or Microneedling Radiofrequency is a skin-lightening treatment. This cosmetic procedure uses tiny needles and radiofrequency to rejuvenate ageing skin. It is less invasive and gives good results, such that it helps to combat wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, acne scars, hyperpigmentation and sagging skin.
- Fractional CO2
Fractional CO2 laser treatment helps in treating acne scars, hyperpigmentation, sagging skin, sun damage, warts, and uneven skin tone, among other skin-ageing-related problems. It is a non-invasive procedure that uses a laser made of carbon dioxide to remove the outer layers of the affected or damaged skin.
