If you’re dealing with skin discoloration, it can be frustrating. When new spots or discolored areas develop where they didn’t previously exist, you may find yourself seeking pigmentation treatment. Even for spots and discoloration you’ve had your whole life pigmentation treatment may be an option to remove the spots and create a more uniform tone for your skin.
What Causes Discoloration?
There are many factors that can contribute to discoloration in your skin, ranging from genetic to behavioral issues. Natural effects, such as aging, can lead to discoloration. Spending excessive time in the sun is also a common contributor to increased skin discoloration. These factors can trigger hyperstimulation in melanin production, resulting in discoloration.
What Are the Most Common Types of Discoloration?
Skin discoloration can come in a variety of forms. Common types of spotting include age spots, sun spots, and excessive freckling. Individuals suffering from rosacea and melasma may also seek out the help of a professional to address their skin discoloration.
How Is Discoloration Treated?
One of the safest and most effective methods for treating a variety of skin discoloration conditions is with intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. When you undergo IPL therapy as a pigmentation treatment, a laser is used to provide bursts of light that break up the pigmentation in your skin. Once broken down the pigmentation can be effectively removed from your system through your body’s natural processes. This causes the pigmentation to fade, and over the course of multiple treatments can even fully remove the appearance of discoloration spots.
