Pigmentation – an overview

Pigmentation is a concern that affects men and women, and women are affected, more than men.

The interesting aspect of this, is that most people think only women wear make up to camouflage skin irregularities on the face. But men are getting more savvy in using make up as well Рmore on this is another blog.

Let’s get back to pigments and pigmentation……

Pigments, called melanin give your skin its natural skin colour.

We all naturally have different amounts of melanin or pigment in our skin, which give us 6 different skin types, known as Fitzpatrick skin types I-VI.

Hyperpigmentation – generally people referred to it, as ‘pigmentation’.

What is it?

Hyperpigmentation occurs when you have an overproduction of melanin or pigment in your melanocytes, in certain areas of your skin.

What is the cause?

There are several factors that can contribute to an increased production of melanin such as:

  • Sun exposure
  • Hormonal changes
  • Medication
  • Iron overload
  • Medical conditions
  • And stress and environmental factors are also being mentioned as a contributing factor.

What does uneven pigmentation look like?

Uneven pigmentation can appear on any part of your body. But, people see your face. FIRST. That is how people recognise you.

Your pigmentation can appear as uneven patches on your upper lip, cheeks or forehead. You could have a combination of of these areas on your face. It’s that first impression that you would like to be comfortable with and that’s where we would like to help.

The best approach to treating pigmentation, is to have a combination of treatments, such as topical applications, prescription medication, chemical peels, light or laser therapy.
