Hyperpigmentation Treatment in Hyderabad

Picture 55


Hyperpigmentation is the medical term for dark spots that form on the skin when the amount of melanin in the skin goes up. There are more names for these kinds of skin discoloration: age spots, melasma, freckles, sun spots, and liver spots. Hyperpigmentation can look like small spots or it can cover larger areas, like the face, hands, and arms.

Melanin-making cells (melanocytes) in the skin are also activated by sunlight, acne, and rashes. This makes them make more melanin in the deeper layer of the skin. Pigmentation is a harmless condition in which the skin gets darker than the healthy skin cells around it. This happens when the body makes too much melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color, and dark pigment deposits on the skin.

Hyperpigmentation Treatment in Hyderabad

Increased hyperpigmentation isn’t dangerous, and it can be caused by other health problems like liver disease, thyroid problems, being overweight, or PCOD. When these dark spots are in the sun, the UV rays are absorbed by the melanin, which helps protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays. When you get too much UV light, you get a tan and the areas of your skin that are already pigmented get darker. So, you must use broad-spectrum sunscreen, which blocks UV rays that can hurt your skin. Possible causes of too much hyperpigmentation:
  • Too much sun exposure causes the skin to make too much of the pigment melanin.
  • Taking antibiotics, drugs that stop seizures, birth control, and chemotherapy
  • Acne recovery
  • Changes in hormones happen during pregnancy.
  • Addison’s disease
  • Heredity
  • Skin treatments that went wrong
  • Skin damage or injury

Types of hyperpigmentation

1. Melasma

Melasma is most often caused by changes in hormones. This causes the face to make too much melanin during pregnancy and in women who take birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy during menopause. People can get these dark spots on their face, especially on their cheeks and nose.

2. Sunspots, liver spots, or solar lentigines

Dark spots on the skin can be caused by too much sun over a long period of time. Since this is caused by being in the sun, it is more likely to happen on the hands, face, and chest, which are often in the sun.

3. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

This can be caused by a skin injury that happened in the past. Acne and other skin diseases can also leave behind PIH or dark spots after they are gone. Oftentimes, surgery or an injury can also cause dark spots to show up in the same spot.

4. Freckles or small spots

These tiny brown spots can show up anywhere, but they are most common on the face and arms. This can run in families.

Diagnosis of Hyperpigmentation:

  • Medical history examination
  • Physical examination
  • Blood test
  • Skin biopsy

Treatments for Hyperpigmentation

Post prescription creams

They make the skin lighter and help the dark spots fade by making the skin tone look more like it should. But it takes a long time to work. So, advanced dermatological treatments and creams are often recommended to get skin that is brighter, lighter, and free of pigmentation.

Laser treatment

Laser treatment is the best way to reduce hyperpigmentation because it uses light beams to remove dark spots. There are two main kinds of lasers: those that cut and those that don't. Ablative lasers use very strong beams of light to take away layers of skin. People with light skin can use ablation lasers. Lasers that don't cut the skin are pointed at the dermis to make collagen grow and make the skin more flexible. Both ablative and non-ablative lasers break up parts or pigments in the skin to make new skin cells grow and make the skin tighter and more toned. The laser treatment gets rid of pigmentation without leaving scars.

Laser Toning

This is the best way to use a laser to treat hyperpigmentation. During the procedure, a Q-switched laser is used to stop melanin from being made in different layers of the skin. This helps to fix uneven pigmentation in the skin. Lasers can also help get the body to make more elastin and collagen. It also makes the skin's texture look younger without any downtime. This procedure is good for people who have sunspots, age spots, uneven skin tone, tanned skin, sunspots, and large pores. This treatment helps the face, hands, and neck look younger quickly. It helps subdermal collagen form, which improves the tone and texture of the skin.

Chemical peel

Peels can be used to treat hyperpigmentation. When getting a chemical peel, you need to be very careful, because doing it wrong can cause uneven pigmentation and scarring. With this method, a chemical peel solution is put on the skin based on what it needs. These chemicals remove the top layer of skin gently and help the skin's cells renew and grow back. The dead skin cells are then taken off, and the skin's natural glow is brought back, giving it a more refreshed and brighter look.

Intense Pulsed light (Photo facials)

IPL photofacial is a non-invasive method that can also be used to treat hyperpigmentation. This procedure uses a wide range of light to penetrate the skin and target excess melanin pigment. Also, the immune system of the body gets rid of these broken-down particles. This product gives your skin a more even tone. This treatment is very good at getting rid of skin problems like brown spots, redness, and sunspots. IPL photo facials can also be used to treat other skin flaws and signs of ageing. This is a safe and easy procedure that doesn't need any downtime.


This is a good way to get rid of dead and damaged skin cells and exfoliate the skin. It fixes skin that is dull and damaged by the sun and makes it look bright and healthy again. Most of the time, this procedure is used to treat skin problems like acne, acne scars, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation. During this procedure, dead and damaged skin cells are scrubbed away, and the top layer of damaged skin is safely removed so that healthy skin can show through. This procedure is simple, doesn't hurt, and takes 30–40 minutes to finish.
