Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is a skin discomfort that mainly affects darker skin colors. This condition is triggered by many different causes such as sunburn, allergic reactions, infections, injuries, inflammatory disease as lupus or atopic dermatitis.
In this article, we will explore how to deal with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and get the best result. We have gathered the most effective medical aesthetic treatments for your successful recovery.
Radiofrequency (RF) for unwanted Pigmentation
RF treatment is a procedure that uses radio frequencies that penetrate the skin and stimulate blood flow. Blood flow is rich in nutrients and healing elements. In this way, the skin warms, and blood flow goes directly to the problem area. RF treatments improve skin color, skin texture, wrinkles, and age spots. There is no warning for future hyperpigmentation because they do not target melanin.
PRP is probably the most natural way to reduce hyperpigmentation. It uses your cells – platelets that can boost the body’s self-healing process. Injected on the problem area, they start upgrading the tissue to repair the damaged skin.
During a study, it was observed more than 80% hyperpigmentation reduction after three sessions. Powerful indeed? In addition, PRP is great for anti-age purposes and works well for anyone who would like to shrink a few years off their face.
Unique chemical peels affect post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation as they peel off the skin and remove darker pigmentation. What they do is inhibit the production of melanin – the reason your skin gets darker or lighter.
Chemical peels are beneficial as they shred dead skin and initiate the rejuvenation process for the skin. In this way, they allow new fresh skin to replace the pigmented and damaged one.
Mesotherapy (micro-needling – Dermapen) and Glutathione injections for skin whitening
Mesotherapy is targeting the dermis (middle skin layer). Its nutrients penetrate deep into the skin and nourish it for maximum results. Microblading uses microneedles that create micro-injuries on the skin. Through the needles, the skin is injected with nutrients. Among them – glutathione.
Glutathione is an anti-oxidant that affects melanin levels. The enzyme tyrosinase regulates melanin production. Glutathione binds to this enzyme and together creates pathways for melanin production. What also glutathione does is destroy free radicals. They happen to activate tyrosinase and, thus – melanin production.
In combination with Mesotherapy, you can also go for glutathione infusion. Skin whitening injections are a stylish way to reduce unwanted pigmentation and detox the whole body. Keep in mind that you have to be careful and choose only high-quality glutathione injections because synthetic ones hide risks.
To sum up: Less free radical – more even tan.
CO2 Laser Fractional Resurfacing
CO2 Laser Fractional Resurfacing is, by definition, the most uncomfortable experience of all. But results are worth it. Numerous reviews are written on the web about the fantastic outcomes clients get.
CO2 Laser Fractional damages skin tissue to stimulate skin rejuvenation, healthy skin cells build up and revitalize. Collagen is boosted through the roof.
Downtime for this aesthetic treatment is 2-3 weeks, depending on the individual healing abilities of the body. Those two weeks are not the best experience, but they sure lead to new healthy skin free of pigmentation and wrinkles.
