Pigmentation Treatment in Delhi

Dark skin pigmentation is a common cosmetic issues faced by many. Fortunately, dermatologists at Mehektagul Dermaclinic offer a range of effective pigmentation treatment in Delhi that help individuals get rid of dark spots and tanning.

Skin pigmentation is the color of your skin. It is determined by the amount and type of melanin in the body. People from different regions and racial backgrounds have different skin colors. However, the change in melanin production can affect the skin tone and cause white spots (vitiligo), dark spots, patches, etc. 

Sunburn, acne, cuts, bruises, wounds, malnutrition, hormonal imbalance, etc., are some reasons for the skin to scar and have discoloration in various parts of the body. Let's learn what are the causes behind this.

What Causes Skin Pigmentation?

The outer layer of the skin has cells called melanocytes, which are responsible for producing melanin. They have melanosomes or mini-organs that determine the size, amount, and type of melanin to produce. 

  • Eumelanin is the first type of melanin in dark colors (brown and black). It protects the skin by limiting the UV light and its damage to skin cells. 
  • Pheomelanin is the second type and in red and yellow colors. It doesn’t protect the skin from UV light and instead supports the production of reactive oxygen radicals that support the cause. 

Other causes of pigmentation or tanning include:

  • Excessive sun damage
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal changes
  • Smoking
  • Skin allergies
  • Trauma
  • Undiagnosed medical concerns
  • Trauma
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Genetic factors
  • Poor eating habits.

About 125 genes can affect skin pigmentation and help the body produce the type of melanin required for the person to survive. While the number of melanocytes in your body depends on genetics, this count can be increased through tanning and hyperpigmentation. Based on the type pigmentation treatment in Delhi is provided by skin doctor at Mehektagul Dermaclinic. Consult them for more details!

Types of Skin Pigmentation Disorders

 Pigmentation treatment in Delhi: Three types of Skin Pigmentation Disorders, Hyperpigmentation, Melasma, and Hypopigmentation.

Melanin is responsible for our bodies' skin color, hair color, and eye color. People with less melanin production are fair, while people with moderate melanin production have a darker skin tone, like the shades of brown. People with high melanin production have very dark skin tones. If we didn’t produce melanin, our skin would be pale white with shades of pink hinting at the blood flowing through the vessels underneath.

A change in melanin production leads to skin pigmentation. These are broadly divided into three types: 

  • Hyperpigmentation

As the term hyper suggests, this is caused by excessive melanin production in the body. It can be due to exposure to sunlight, hormonal changes (pregnancy, age, etc.), Addison’s disease, medication used for birth control, and other antibiotics. Birthmarks are also caused by hyperpigmentation. 

  • Melasma

It is an example of hyperpigmentation where brown patches appear on the skin, commonly on the face. Though women are mostly affected by melasma during pregnancy, it can also be seen in some men. People with darker skin are at a higher risk of getting melasma. You can get melasma removal and pigmentation treatment in Delhi under the expert guidance of best skin doctors at Mehektagul Dermaclinic.

  • Hypopigmentation

Hypopigmentation is the lack of (or reduced) melanin production, which leads to pale or light patches on the skin. It can be a result of genetic disorders or past injuries like burns, scars, infection, chemical exposure, etc. Skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis are also responsible. The following conditions come under hypopigmentation. 

  • Vitiligo: It is an autoimmune disorder that damages the melanocyte cells, resulting in lesser melanin production. This causes white patches on the skin. The patches may or may not spread throughout the body. Vitiligo can be managed, you can consult a dermatologist to try a few FDA-approved treatments (Food and Drug Administration) to reduce the discoloration. 
  • Albinism: It is a rare genetic disorder caused by the absence of melanocyte cells, which leads to a complete lack of color in the skin, eyes, and hair. Hence, people with this condition should always use a powerful sunscreen to avoid skin cancer and sun damage. People with white skin are more likely to be affected by Albinism. 
  • Depigmentation: It is the condition with a complete loss of pigment due to different reasons. The skin is pale white throughout. It can be seen in people with extensive vitiligo. If chronic health conditions cause depigmentation, it can be treated through light therapy, topical creams, etc.  

People with vitiligo and depigmentation may also opt for surgical procedures. People with mild skin pigmentation mostly use makeup and dye patches to cover the affected area.
