A Suitable Cure for Pigmentation

Posted on September 19, 2017

Depending on the severity and extent of the pigmentation problem, Dr. Sneh Thadani of SSD Hospital tailors a patient’s treatment based on his or her individual skin tone.

Unwanted pigmentation problems, like brown spots or splotchy skin, have many causes and can occur in all skin types. Fortunately, dermatologists have investigated a variety of skin-lightening methods and have developed many promising treatments. Depending on the severity and extent of the pigmentation problem, we at SSD Hospital can tailor a patient’s treatment based on his or her individual skin tone, and the treatment may include a single therapy or a combination of one to two therapies.

Sun damage causes pigmentation problems in light skinned individuals.

The main cause of dark spots in light-skinned individuals is sun damage. Years of sun exposure can result in spotted hyperpigmentation, a condition marked by increased pigment production that results in patchy skin colour or a blotchy complexion. The extent of sun damage depends largely on a person’s skin colour and his or her history of long-term or intense sun exposure.

Dark-skinned individuals more prone to hard-to-treat pigmentation problems.

Two of the most common pigmentation problems that occur in people with darker skin tones are melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Melasma is a patchy brown discoloration that occurs on sun-exposed areas of the face and is commonly referred to as “the mask of pregnancy” because it often occurs during pregnancy. Those with light skin can develop melasma, but the condition is more common in dark skin. Because a deeper skin layer (the dermis) may be affected, melasma can be difficult to treat and requires a multifaceted treatment regimen.

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is a condition in which an injury or inflammation to the skin causes increased pigment production. PIH occurs in darker-skinned individuals and, like melasma, can be difficult to treat when it involves a deeper skin layer. The most common cause of PIH is acne, but it also can result from psoriasis, a burn, or an injury. It is important to address the underlying cause of the pigmentation problem. For example, to treat PIH due to acne.

Treatment options for pigmentation and skin rejuvenation.

Hydra jet exfoliation

A hydra jet spray using normal saline gently exfoliates the dead skin layer. Or a diamond tip microdermabrasion exfoliates the dead skin layer. After which skin lightning products, vitamin c, hyaluronic acids etc are infused with a help a high end infusion machine into the deeper layers of the skin, which restores the moisture , vitality, improves the blood circulation, reduces the fine line and wrinkles giving you a more hydrated radiant and youth full look. Perfect for an instant glow.


Microdermabrasion also called as Skin polishing, is a simple and safe office procedure that helps in abrading the superficial skin layer (stratum corneum). This superficial abrasion is done with the help of aluminum oxide crystals or other abrasive substances that are blown onto the skin surface and then vacuumed off, using a single hand piece. Also diamond tipped microdermabrasion is available at SSD Hospital where no crystals are required Meso therapy Infusion of essential mineral, vitamins, anti oxidant, skin brightening and skin tightening agent are infused into the deeper layer of the skin, which are generally lost due to everyday stress, pollution and lifestyle.

The penetration is hence enhanced, and the skin cells’ metabolic processes stimulated. The cells remove metabolic products more efficiently with the dead and dull cells from the surface of the skin and hence the skin seems more fresh. Its like spraying the skin with a magic elixir of life.

End result is a rejuvenated and smooth look with reduction in the fine lines and open pores. This procedure can be repeated every 15 days to maintain the effect.
