Pigmentation,Freckles,Sun Spots

Cause of Pigmentations

There are many types of pigmentations. And the pigmentations can be caused by many of factors externally or internally.

External Factors

Ultraviolet (UV) Radiation

Your skinfs melanocytes produce the pigment melanin which protects your skin against Ultraviolet radiation. Pigment patches begin to appear when melanin containing skin cell layers are not discharged as smoothly as they should in your skinfs natural turnover process.

Inflammation and Infection
Post-inflammatory pigmentation occurs when inflammatory reactions such as acne, eczema, and burn injury triggers excessive melanin production. Use of unsuitable make-up or incorrect cleansing techniques can also cause pigmentation.

Internal Factors

Chronological Aging

As you age, your skinfs natural turnover and reproduction cycle starts to slow down. Melanin containing skin cell layer‚“ do not discharge and as smoothly as they should and pigment patches begin to form. Long term UV damage gradually results and becomes more visible as pigmentation.

Hormonal Imbalance
Hormonal changes occur during the menstrual cycle, menopause, pregnancy, and when taking birth control pills. The result is pigmentation patches known as Melasmas.

Psychological stress can cause over secretion of adrenocortical hormone which stimulates melanocytes to produce more melanin.

Unhealthy Lifestyle Habits
Unhealthy lifestyle habits such as poor eating habits (overeating or binging), lack of exercise, and lack of sleep can easily delay your skinfs natural turn over cycle and result in melanin build-up.

What is Photofacial ?

Photopfacial is irradiated with suitable wavelength for each skin type to achieve the most efficient result.

How does it work ?

This light is defferent from that of a laser. It has a broad spectrum, yet does not emit ultra-violet (UV) rays, and is absorbed by melanin, hemoglobin, and fibroblastic cells. When the light is absorbed by melanin, the spot becomes darker temporarily but will gradually disappear. When absorbed by hemoglobin, teleangiectagie will gradually be less pronounced. when absorbed by fibroblastic cells, they produce neocollagen, which improves the skin's laxity,fine wrinkles, and texture,large pores.
