Do you suffer from hyper pigmentation? If yes then it is important to understand that there are various types of pigmentations that occur on the body and face, which can be either congenital or acquired. Hyper pigmentation is a very common problem. It is basically characterized by the darkening of certain areas of the skin caused by increased synthesis of melanin. This gives rise to the presence of spots which appear darker than the surrounding skin. Hyper pigmentation can also affect your nails, although they are usually not as noticeable as the ones on your facial skin.
Any sort of trauma to the skin leads to hyper pigmentation. Many forms of hyper pigmentation are caused by an excess production of melanin. The basic causes of hyper pigmentation may be inflammation, acne vulgaris or sun damage. Melanin is produced in the healing process of the affected area.
Laser resurfacing is now a treatment of choice to solve hyper pigmentation. It helps in the regeneration and repair of the skin and facilitates the synthesis of collagen which reduces the darkness of the skin.
It is advisable to consult a qualified dermatologist before opting for laser resurfacing to get rid of unwanted hyper pigmentation marks. If you have chosen laser treatment for hyper pigmentation, your patience and emotional readiness will also help make a difference.
