Best Skin Peels To Treat Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is common nowadays in sunny India. And it only gets worse in summer. That is why chemical skin peels are such a popular choice for achieving and maintaining your ideal tone and type of skin.
Now, we already know that most conventional sun-protection measures are less than ideal. Even sunscreen offering SPF 50 is only effective about 53% of the time to prevent pigmentation.
And, apart from the far longer lasting effects of premature ageing, the sun also causes visible dark patches removal, hyperpigmented skin.
What is hyperpigmentation:
The colour and tone of our skin are called pigment. And it comes from a natural organic molecule our bodies produce called melanin which determines our skin colour.
More melanin means darker skin and less melanin means lighter skin. And less melanin gives lighter skin. But all skin types have melanin, just in different quantities.
Now, for the ideal skin tone, you want every part of your skin to contain the same amount of melanin all in your body but many times it did not happen.
But, when skin becomes “hyper” pigmented, some parts of the skin start producing too much melanin and cause pigmentation in the skin.
The result is hyperpigmentation: Areas of skin with spots, Splotches, Freckles or patches Dark spots, that are darker the skin around it.
Pigmentation Removal in Delhi:
We distinguish between 3 main types of hyperpigmentation:
- There’s Sun-induced hyperpigmentation.
- Hormonal causes such as melasma (common during and after pregnancy).
- And lastly, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (to do with scarring and acne).
Long-term treatments mean permanent treatment may differ for the underlying causes of the different types of hyperpigmentation.
But all treatments will contain a more imm.ediate element or result, for helping you get rid of any existing dark skin in the meantime
The most effective way to get rid of unwanted hyperpigmentation in the short to medium term is to stay out of the sun because the sun worsens all types of hyperpigmentation and boost skin cell turnover.
Basically, you want your skin to shed: to strip away dead and dying skin cells at a faster rate. This will allow new, even-toned skin cells to take their place and make your appearance nice.
There are various ways to advance skin shedding including Laser treatments in Delhi and advanced night-time renewal creams. But skin peels remain one of the most popular and effective treatment options for pigmentation removal.
Types of skin peels used for hyperpigmentation
Your skin specialist in Delhi or doctor will advise you which peel is best for your particular case.
But, in general, there are three main types of chemical skin peels commonly used to treat hyperpigmentation which are:
Glycolic Acid – Alpha Peel:
Part of the fruit acid family or glycolic acid peels are alpha-hydroxy acid and one of the mildest and most popular types of skin peels available in the market.
Used to treat epidermal hyperpigmentation that is on the surface layers of the skin, it is an ideal lunchtime peel since there’s no downtime after the treatment.
Salicylic Acid – Beta Peel:
Called “beta” because it’s a beta-hydroxy acid, the alpha’s slightly harder working cousin. Salicylic acid peels also exfoliate and make skin shed that is the top layers of skin like alpha peels.
But they have an added antibacterial effect and helps clean and renew pores in the face. Salicylic acid peels are used to treat all three types of hyperpigmentation.
But, like alpha peels, only a qualified skin care therapist or doctor can do the treatment on you otherwise it gets worse.
Trichloroacetic – TCA:
TCA is an acid commonly used in medicine to destroy or kill unwanted skin imperfections, such as warts or moles removal in Delhi.
Thus, TCA peels that is a variation specifically designed to be used as a peel on the face are stronger and penetrate deeper than the other peels. It is used to treat really deep-seated hyperpigmentation on the face.
The most notable differences between this chemical peel and others are that TCA peels will cause your skin to visibly shed little downtime involved and only a medical doctor can administer this treatment.
Because they exfoliate and promote new cell turnover, skin chemical peels speed up the treatment of any kind of hyperpigmentation.
