Dr Shwetha’s Clinic
Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition that affects thousands of people around the world, and it can be both bothersome and damaging to one’s self-esteem. Hyperpigmentation occurs when the skin produces too much melanin, causing patches of darker skin on the surface. It can be caused by sun exposure, certain medications, hormones, inflammation, or genetics among other things. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments available for hyperpigmentation which can help reduce skin discoloration and leave you feeling more confident in your own skin.
At Dr. Shwetha’s Skin Care Center, we offer state-of-the-art acne scar removal treatments to provide our clients with improved skin tone and texture. Our experienced dermatologists have years of experience in performing these treatments, which are tailored to the individual needs of each patient.
Hyperpigmentation Treatment options at Dr Shwetha’s Clinic
Topical creams, lotions and serums that exfoliate the outer layers of skin to lighten dark spots while also inhibiting the production of melanin. These products must often be used over several months in order to see good results so they work best when used as part of an ongoing skincare regimen alongside sunscreen to prevent further damage from UV rays.
Chemical peels are another option for those seeking out a more dramatic solution for hyperpigmentation treatment. Chemical peels use an acid solution to exfoliate away the top layer of damaged skin cells revealing brighter and smoother layers underneath. They are usually done gradually over several sessions until the desired result is achieved and should always be done by a licensed medical professional or dermatologist as they can cause burns or discolorations if applied incorrectly.
Laser therapies are yet another option for treating hyperpigmentation using light energy directed at affected areas to target the excess melanin in the affected area while leaving surrounding healthy tissue unharmed. Lasers work best on lighter colored spots but can cause temporary redness and swelling right after treatment so it’s important to follow all aftercare instructions provided by your dermatologist to ensure best results with minimal discomfort.
No matter what type of hyperpigmentation treatment you choose, it’s important to consult your doctor first before committing to any course of action as different people respond differently even with similar treatments due to various factors such as age, ethnicity and underlying health conditions etc. Contact Dr. Shwetha’s clinic at IRIS Diagnostic today to book a consultation with our expert dermatologist.
