7 Different Treatments Explained
You’ll be pleased to know there are some excellent treatments for your Melasma or Hyperpigmentation skin problem. We want to introduce you to some of the most common Melasma treatments. Then you’ll understand how MonoDermà is an aid to each type.
These modern treatments help reduce melasma and other skin discoloration issues that you might have. For many, including yourself, this process may result in dramatic improvements in your complexion and self-esteem.
IPL Light Treatment
Intense Pulsed Light or photorejuvenation is a mode that uses high energy light in short bursts to penetrate the skin. It’s focused on the specific skin afflicted with discolored pigmentation and lightens it. It’s used to treat rosacea, spider veins, and as well for hair removal.
The stinging sensation you’ll feel during the treatment may last for quite a few hours – feeling much like a sunburn. Some users have experienced significant swelling.
Fraxel is a type of laser system that uses intense laser light to zap the melanin in your skin to lighten its colour. Laser light goes deeper into your skin than a topical serum or cream would, and deeper than IPL. The Fraxel lasering process also stimulates the production of more collagen in your skin.
Carbon Dioxide Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional Laser CO2 provides some valued skin rejuvenation benefits. A high-energy beam of laser light (ultrapulse) is used to smooth out wrinkles, scars and lines. Just as with Fraxel laser treatments, it stimulates the growth of collagen.
This treatment is thought by some to be a better treatment than plastic surgery, chemical peels or botox injections. In the treatment, tiny grains are applied to the skin to buff away surface skin cells on the epidermis or top layer of skin which has many fine lines, blemishes and sun damage.
The body interprets the treatment as an injury and sets forth processes to repair it with new cells. The skin may be red and swelled for several hours after the dermabrasion. After having the microdermabrasion treatment, cerum products such as MonoDermà can more easily penetrate and infuse the skin.
In this treatment, a liquid solution is applied to the skin which makes it blister and shed a layer of skin. The treatment can reduce fine lines, improve scars, treat some forms of acne, and reduce age spots, freckles and hyperpigmentation.
After your chemical peel treatment (depending on the specific treatment and skin recovery) you may be advised to apply a topical serum such as MonoDermà – to infuse it with needed vitamins.
To maintain the benefits of your treatment, pure vitamins such as A, C, E, and M help to rejuvenate and speed healing, along with producing additional collagen.
These substances also known as bleaching creams lighten skin affected by melasma, scarring, freckles, dark spots, age spots, or sun damage spots. Available in many forms, the skin bleaches (Hydroquinone cream, Glutathione) fade or neutralize the melanin in the skin to make it lighter.
These lotions or topical vitamins are certainly the least painful solution for melasma or hyperpigmentation conditions. Those who have used the melasma treatments above, will often use these serums afterward to rejuvenate their skin and maintain collagen production. Serums containing pure vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E & Vitamin M are more effective.
Vitamin A or retinol acts as a skin refresher and regulator. It increases the natural skin exfoliation rate to create a fresher complexion.
Vitamin C helps to generate collagen and elastin which is often lacking in unhealthy skin, and helps correct hyperpigmentation / melasma.
Vitamin E or tocopherol helps to soothe and calm the skin. It also helps hydrate.
Vitamin M is used to help skin recover from various treatments as well as sun exposure.
All of the above treatments come with varying levels of cost, time, pain, risks and results. You’ll want to consult with your doctor or skin treatment specialist to achieve optimal results for hyperpigmentation treatment.
