Knowing Cause Of Hyperpigmentation Is Essential To Treatment
According to Dr Thevendra from the APSARAS Clinic in Coventry, West Midlands, correcting hyperpigmentation is often a complex process, and it should always begin with an in-depth consultation to understand the cause before treatment.
The team at ASPSARAS treat a variety of patient concerns, but among the more difficult to address is hyperpigmentation.
We ask Dr Thevendra to explain how best to treat hyperpigmentation.
“To get the most out of skin pigmentation treatment, we say patients must first undergo a comprehensive skin evaluation,” the skin expert explains.
“By doing so, skin care professionals like myself can assess potential causes of the dark skin discoloration and whether it was influenced by genetics, medical history, or other lifestyle factors.”
The skin specialist notes that each of these can play a role in skin cell function, and by relating hyperpigmentation to a specific cause, the most effective method of treatment can often be identified.
“Most treatment options for the skin condition utilise heat, light, chemicals, or lasers, and we emphasise the need for a thorough skin analysis to determine if the patient’s condition is treatable,” Dr Thevendra concludes.
Common procedures performed for these patients include chemical peels, IPL therapy, microdermabrasion, and laser skin resurfacing.
Overall, the doctors at APSARAS believe successful treatment of hyperpigmentation relies on a thorough skin analysis. For patients who wish to address their uneven skin tone, they recommend seeking a qualified professional who understands how various factors affects skin and how potential treatment methods will affect the condition.
