What Causes Skin Pigmentation?

Causes Skin Pigmentation in South Delhi : Genetics, Hormonal imbalances, Sun exposure, Certain medications, Certain illnesses.

Everyone has varied skin tones. That’s because of the different amounts, sizes, and functioning of melanosomes- the tiny melanin-producing factories present within the melanocytes. The melanocytes produce two types of melanin: Eumelanin and Pheomelanin. Eumelanin is a brown/black pigment that helps protect the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays and subsequent damage by reactive oxygen radicals. Pheomelanin is a yellow/red colour pigment that offers very little sun protection. Skin pigmentation is determined by the balance of both of these melanin types.

A skin pigmentation disorder is caused by an imbalance of eumelanin and pheomelanin in the skin. This can happen due to various reasons, including:

  • Genetics- Some genes play a role in the regulation of the melanin production process. The number of melanocytes an individual has is determined by genetics.
  • Hormonal imbalances- Oestrogen and progesterone hormones in women can stimulate the overproduction of melanocytes that lead to skin pigmentation. This occurs in the case of melasma- hyperpigmentation seen in pregnant women when skin is exposed to the sun.
  • Sun exposure- When a part of the body is exposed to the sun for long or frequently without protection, the skin turns dark. This happens because of more production of melanin, happening is a defence against the sun’s harmful UV rays.
  • Certain medications- Skin pigmentation may intensify with the use of certain birth control pills and antibiotics while certain other medications may lighten the skin pigment. Drugs that cause increased photosensitivity of the skin can cause hyperpigmentation.
  • Certain illnesses- Adrenal disorders such as Addison’s disease, when the hormone cortisol is not produced in enough amounts, or thyroid disorders can cause hyperpigmentation.

Besides, Vitamin B12 and folic acid deficiency and injury to the skin like cuts, burns, or acne can lead to skin darkening.

Dr.Sarita Sanke checks for the root cause that is causing pigmentation and provides patients with advanced treatment plans to manage all types of pigmentation issues effectively. To get the best pigmentation treatment in South Delhi, consult the expert skin doctor at DermoRita Skin Clinic.

Types of Skin Pigmentation Disorders

Types of Skin Pigmentation Disorders

Skin pigmentation disorders, injuries, and other bodily changes can cause skin to lighten, whiten, or darken in multiple areas or only in certain skin patches. There are three kinds of skin pigmentation:

Hyperpigmentation- It causes the skin to become darker as a result of extra melanin production or the presence of abnormally high other pigments. Various reasons behind it include birthmarks, ageing, sun exposure, acne, hormonal imbalance during pregnancy or puberty, Addison’s disease, and certain medications.

Hypopigmentation- It leaves the skin lighter in colour because of an abnormally low melanin content. It can be caused by skin injuries due to burns, infections, ulcers, blisters, or chemical exposure; inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis; and rare genetic conditions like albinism due to the absence of melanin-producing enzymes.

Depigmentation- This happens when skin loses its pigment and appears white in spots or patches. One common reason behind it is an autoimmune condition called vitiligo.

Skin Pigmentation Removal Treatment in Greater Kailash

Skin Pigmentation Treatment in Greater Kailash include Microneedling, Autologous growth factor concentrate therapy, Chemical Peel, and Laser treatment.

  • Microneedling- This is a popular pigmentation treatment in Greater Kailash offered at DermoRita Skin Clinic. The procedure involves micro-puncturing the pigmented skin with a microneedling device having multiple ultrathin needles. The body interprets the micro-punctures in the skin as micro-wounds and rushes the natural growth factors, collagen, and elastin to the treated site to repair and regrow the skin and tissues, thereby fading out the pigmented spots and patches.
  • Autologous growth factor concentrate therapy- In this treatment, the candidate’s blood is withdrawn and processed by centrifugation so that a highly concentrated solution of growth factors is separated from other blood components. The growth factors are extracted out and taken in sterile injection which is further administered into the pigmented skin. This therapy is an innovative approach to address pigmentation disorders with long-term remission. It works by inhibiting prostaglandins and tyrosinase enzymes responsible for melanin production and promoting angiogenesis, skin regeneration, and rejuvenation.  
  • Chemical Peel- In this treatment , an acid solution is applied to the pigmented skin to peel it off and reveal new, clear skin from underneath. This skin resurfacing treatment involves the use of either of the three types of peels: superficial, medium, and deep, based on the depth of pigmentation to be treated. chemical Peel is best for hyperpigmentation or melasma treatment.  
  • Laser treatment- Q-switched Nd: YAG laser is one of the effective laser types that can help thermally destroy extra melanin in the skin. The fragmented melanin pigments are later cleared off from the skin naturally, leaving behind lighter and glowing, rejuvenated skin.
