Treat Pigmentation with Best Cosmetic Treatments

Posted by Dr Rohit Batra on November 11th, 2020

Skin gets its colour from the skin cells called melanocytes as they are responsible for producing melanin pigment by the process of melanogenesis. Too much melanin production causes darkening of the skin which is called pigmentation. Pigmentation is a harmless skin condition that affects people in the form of melasma, age spots, liver spots, sun spots, etc. These dark patches are usually found on the face, neck, hands, and body parts that are mostly exposed to the sun. People get skin pigmentation treatments mostly for aesthetic reasons.

Factors that cause formation of pigmentation or dark patches on the skin:

  • Aging

  • Sun damage

  • Pregnancy

  • Steroids intake

  • Insulin resistance

  • Addison’s disease

  • Acne marks

  • Lack of skincare

  • Chemotherapy drugs

  • Hormonal imbalance

  • Side effects of cosmetic products

Self-care tips that help to prevent pigmentation:

Following are some self-care tips provided by Dr. Rohit Batra, the best dermatologist in Delhi that can help prevent pigmentation to a great extent:

  • Pigmentation can affect anyone. Hence everyone must take proper preventive measures to avoid the occurrence of pigmentation.

  • Protect the skin from direct sunlight. Always apply sunscreen, and cover the skin areas exposed to the sun with proper clothing.

  • Do not scratch or rub the skin with nails or harsh scrubs, as it can damage the skin and cause pigmentation.

  • Avoid picking scabs, spots, acne to prevent hyperpigmentation.

  • Drink enough water to keep the skin hydrated.

However, some life events that can cause pigmentation are unavoidable such as pregnancy. Many women experience pigmentation issues (especially melasma) during pregnancy because of change in hormones. In some cases, melasma disappears naturally with time but some need dermatological treatments to get clear and pigmentation-free skin.

Most forms of pigmentation are stubborn, but can be treated well with the help of advanced cosmetic treatment and medications.

Dr. Rohit Batra is known to provide the best pigmentation treatment after proper diagnosis of the cause and with advanced pigmentation treatments.

It is an effective treatment for mild pigmentation. This treatment exfoliates top layer of the skin and triggers body’snatural healing mechanism, and promotes new skin formation by speeding up the skin cell turnover. The new skin appears brighter and smoother.

Chemical peel

It is one of the most popular and commonly performed treatments for pigmentation and other aging skin concerns. At Dermaworld Skin Clinics, the glycolic acid peel, salicylic acid peel, and trichloroacetic peel (TCA) are used according to the type of pigmentation affecting the skin. Salicylic acid effectively treats pigmentation caused by sun damage, hormonal imbalance, or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The TCA peels help treat pigmentation that is present in the deeper skin layer. The glycolic acid and AHA peels work on the superficial pigmentation. The peels remove damaged skin layer, break the pigmentation tissues, and make the skin toned and smooth.

Intense Pulsed Light or IPL therapy

This treatment is also known as photofacial. It effectively treats redness (rosacea), varicose veins and broken capillaries, and age spots. This treatment uses an array of visible light that helps in improving skin tone and texture.


In this treatment, a handheld tool with a wire brush is moved over the target skin area, and a little bit of gentle pressure is applied. Then after the treatment, there will be small micro-injuries, and the skin becomes red and swollen. The micro-injuries help remove pigmentation, and then some vitamins and skin brightening agents are applied on the skin, and after this, the healed skin will be clear and brighter.

Laser toning

This is one of the most popular skin rejuvenating treatments used to treat sun spots, freckles, age spots, acne marks, and even flat birthmarks. In this treatment, a laser beam is targeted on the target areas, which helps break the dark pigment. The best thing about this treatment is that the laser does not damage the surrounding skin and only targets the dark pigmentation deep under the skin. So, this treatment can help eliminate pigmentation without scarring and promote collagen production making the skin look brighter and youthful.

Pigmentation can worsen over time if not provided with proper treatment by an expert. It is necessary that one consults a qualified dermatologist to treat any skin concern. Those who are looking for pigmentation treatment in Delhi can consult Dr. Rohit Batra at DermaWorld Skin Clinics.
