Pigmentation Treatment Overview: Treatment, Procedure, Causes, Procedure, Types, Real Results, Cost, and Aftercare

The most common skin concern today is pigmentation, which may occur in the form of melasma, dark spots, blemishes, dullness, uneven tone. These dark patches and spots form as a result of excess melanin production in the skin, and this condition is medically known as “hyperpigmentation”. The pigment melanin (responsible for providing color to the skin, hair, and eyes), is produced by melanocytes explains Dr. Anu Kapoor. This pigment absorbs the UV light emitted by the sun and protects the skin from sun damage. When melanin is produced in excess, this causes the skin to appear darker or lighter than normal, discolored, and blotchy. Pigmentation spots can occur on the face, hands, chest, arms, and so on. Thankfully, several Skin Pigmentation Treatments in Delhi are available to treat this condition.

Causes of pigmentation

Pigmentation can be caused due to acne scars, sun damage, hormonal imbalance, bleaching, excess scrubbing, and parlour facials, Addison’s disease, antibiotics, pregnancy, chemotherapy drugs, skin irritation, trauma, etc.
