Here is cause,symptoms and treatments of Pigmentation
Hi, I am Dr. Deepa Kanchanl practicing Dermatologist and Cosmetologist from Mumbai since the last sixteen years. Today I would like to talk on an important topic which is of aesthetic importance to a lot many people that is Pigmentation. Pigmentation on the skin can come because of excessive production of melanin by the cells of the skin. Normally there is increase in production of melanin by stimulation of the cells by ultraviolet rays coming from sunlight or other sources. This can lead to tanning that is generalised increase in the pigmentation or it can be patchy skin but other than ultraviolet rays there can be other reasons for increase in pigmentation like deposition of certain proteins under the skin, drug reaction or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, post burns or chemical injuries, acne or any other liaison appearing on the skin.
So, when you want to get rid of pigmentation finding of the most appropriate cream depending upon the cause is very important. Generally, it is seen that people end up using creams suggested by their friends or somebody who have used it and have got good results but they don’t know what are the contents and how each cream acts and what are the side effects and eventually end up using the cream in excessive quantity for a long period of time. This can lead to a lot of side effects like increase of hair on the skin or the thinning or redness of skin, pimples or paradoxically increase in the pigmentation on the skin, this is known an Ochronosis which occurs because of deposition of the same depigmenting cream underneath the skin this can be very difficult to treat or rather impossible to treat.
So it is my suggestion that whenever you want to get rid of pigmentation it is important to analyse the cause of it and how the cause can be removed, what protection can be taken so that there is no further increase in the pigmentation and have a realistic expectation as to how pigmentation can go away as people generally are looking for a quick fix reply as to how this can disappear completely and forever without coming back again. People are not bothered about protection, whereas protection is the key in pigmentation, so protection from the UV rays by application of sunscreen or protection with a cloth or avoidance of sunlight in the peak sun hours is very important. How to use the sunscreen, how much quantity and for what duration to be applied? All these play a very important role.
So protect more than curing for further information you can contact on lybrate.com. Thank you.
