Pigmentation and Patchy Pigmentation
It is a condition that causes the skin to appear lighter or darker than normal.
This happens when the melanin (pigment that gives skin it’s colour) production goes awry, either by overproducing or under-producing. This can be caused by:
- Overexposure to the sun
- Healing of a wound
- Dryness of the skin which causes certain parts to look like a different colour from the others.
- Dietry deficiencies
- Hormonal changes
Patchy pigmentation gives the appearance of an uneven skin tone. Anything that teases the melanin of the skin can lead to either hyper or hypo pigmentation (darkening/lightening of the skin). Gone are the days where the skin colour was what bothered people, but evenness of the skin colour is responsible for making the skin look healthy and young.
After conducting a thorough analysis of the acne and skin, in the instance of it leading to the pigmentation, we offer a plethora of solutions, right from recommending the correct creams and ointments, to chemical peels , lasers and even home remedies to help you eliminate this problem.
