What is pigmentation?
Pigmentation is the result of the skin’s defensive mechanisms being wrongly triggered.
The melanin cells that generate pigment are a defensive mechanism created by the body to protect the DNA strands within a cell from ultraviolet radiation (UVR). However, when the skin’s and body’s systems are dysfunctional any form of trauma can stimulate melanin production.
There are two forms of pigmentation, ‘passive’ and ‘inflammatory’.
What causes pigmentation?
Hormonal imbalances like those experienced during pregnancy or caused by medications are the main contributors to passive pigmentation.
Stress and anxiety induced inflammation can also cause pigmentation to appear on the skin.
Post-inflamed Hyper-pigmentation (PIH) is what occurs when the skin experiences physical trauma such as a wound, acne, sun exposure or even constant friction. It may not become visible immediately in some cases.
Years of sun exposure without any visible signs of damage can suddenly appear in the form of age spots, usually on the hands, arms, neck and face. This hidden pigmentation can form from as early as fifteen years of age.
How to treat pigmentation
Successful pigmentation revision requires a treatment program and consistent use of Home Prescriptive products. There is no magic cure in the revision of pigmentation and prevention is always easier than revision.
As the melanosomes can be spread through all three layers of the skin as deep as the hyperdermis, it can extremely difficult even with transdermal delivery systems and laser treatments to penetrate far enough to revise the pigmentation.
DMK Remodelling peels are the most effective way to revise pigmentation working to draw the melanosomes up, out and off the new skin forming underneath. It requires a holistic approach to skin revision treatments that look at hormone levels and the dysfunction within the skin.
