What are the causes of pigmentation? How can it be treated? What are the steps to be taken in order to remove it?

What are the causes of pigmentation? How can it be treated? What are the steps to be taken in order to remove it?
The cause of melasma is complex. The pigmentation is due to overproduction of melanin by the pigment cells, melanocytes, which is taken up by the keratinocytes (epidermal melanosis) and/or deposited in the dermis (dermal melanosis, melanophages). The skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin. It is melanin that decides how light or dark our skin is. Melanocytes, cells present in the epidermis of the skin, produce melanin. The skin colour or complexion is directly proportional to the amount of melanin pigment produced by the melanocytes. Sepia – One of the top grade Homeopathic medicines for facial pigmentation

I want to become very fair my skin is so dark so is there any cream which we can buy in pharmacy.
Yes lybrate-user, there r creams which can help. But they help only slightly. Important is going to the root cause, that why the skin is getting darker. A stitch in time saves nine. Consult me, know what is wrong in your life style and correct it. Flora fair (Vaidyaratnam) is a good cream to apply. Apart from that Chandanadi kalka is also recommended. Take 1 tsf Liquorice powder daily at bed time.

Burn scar that is 15 years old can not be removed very easily. You can try applying contractubex regularly, if it does not show effects, go for laser scar removal.

There is in ayurveda mention pinda swed. It is a type of swedan karma [phomentation] but it do some another manner. 1. Boiled a rice in milk then take this rice in one white cloth then tied it properly and warmly it rub on your face every morning for 15 days then stop it and do next month again 2. Apply almond oil on your face and massage for 3-5 min at night. By doing above thing you will get good result.

You can also use apple cider vinegar with Mother for 5 mins after washing your face and splash it clean with water.

Avoid cosmetics and over the counter face products. Overwashing won't remove pimples or spots. You need to use cold water and wash face with a salicylic acid containing wash twice a day and not more. It vil help reduce the oiliness to a large degree. You can also use a natural face pack of orange, honey and curd for fifteen minutes once a week and wash it off. This vil decrease the the oil, whiten and moisturise your skin. Blackheads may have to be removed mechanically or peels need to be done.

Laser Treatment For Dark Spots

M.D., D.P.H.,
Dermatologist, Secunderabad
Laser Treatment For Dark Spots

Some people are lucky enough to get a dark spot in the exact place as Cindy Crawford's mole. For the not so lucky others, the only way out is to get rid of them. Zap it, buzz it and eliminate it permanently. One way to do it is with lasers. Laser is a focused beam of light that has just one colour. When directed towards a problem area on the skin, it destroys that particular pigment or tissue without affecting the surrounding areas. Laser is being used to treat brown spots, scars, unwanted hair follicles, and for tattoo removal. Lasers are also used to treat and remove brown and red spots, liver spots, age spots, sun spots, broken capillaries, birthmarks and angiomas.

Most women continue to lead a normal life with dark spots until they start feeling conscious about it. If dark spots are leading you to run from the sun and undervalue your looks, get them treated easily with laser.

  • How to choose your practitioner?: When you visit a doctor for treatment, the only way to know if the doctor is right for you is by asking a lot of questions. Ask them about their training and their experience in treating particular types of spots. Another wise thing to check is the number of lasers the clinic has. Some small set ups have just one type of laser, which they recommend to all their patients. It is not just a question of experience and skill but also trust, which will ultimately help you choose the right doctor for your treatment. Also, you may be tempted to try a particular laser treatment since it worked wonders for your friend. Refrain from doing so.
  • Types of laser treatment: Your type of treatment will typically be chosen depending on the severity of your dark spots - how dark they are, at what depth in the dermis do they occur, what amount of area they cover, and how old they are. The dermis is six layers deep, so the depth where the spots start can determine what laser your face will need in order to get rid of them. If your spot is fairly new and is only on the top layer, the doctor will start with the first level. Because laser can reach deep down in the dermis, it works where other treatments don't. The treatment does involve a degree of pain and sore skin, but it can yield good results if done right.
  • Cost of laser treatment: Laser treatment will cost less than all the money you spend on over-the-counter skin lightening creams over years. It will also cost lesser than the amount of money you spend in buying high quality concealers over time. The cost will typically depend on the type of set up (spa or clinic) and the expertise of the practitioner.
