What causes pigment disruptions?
The disruptions can be caused by hormonal changes, sun damage or as a result of an infection/wound. Every skin type can have some pigment disruptions. In skin that is prone to pigment disruptions, the pigment cells may show an overreaction to the previously mentioned causes. The pigment cells are responsible for producing pigment. Darker skin has a higher risk of getting pigment spots after infected skin blemishes or wounds. Since the skin contains more pigment, it is more prone to develop pigment spots after damage. Our skin therapists are specialized in treatments for darker skin types.
Treatment of the disrupted pigment?
Pigment disruptions can be treated in various ways. These are the possibilities:
The first step to treatment is a consult. During this consult all questions can be answered. The skin therapist will inspect the skin problem and create a fitting personal treatment plan, as well as advise on the most suitable and effective treatment for the skin.
Besides getting proper treatment, it is very important for pigment disruptions to take care of the skin using products specially developed for treating and preventing pigment spots. These products will fade out the pigment and prevents that the pigment cells overreact.
Peelings can be mild or intensive, either fruit acid or chemical. Peelings are effective because of the acids that can reach the deeper skin layers. The peeling supresses the activity of the pigment cells and fades out the current pigment disruptions. Our peelings are safe for treatment on darker skin as well.
