Pigmentation spots can cause distress and uncertainty in an individual as our appearance plays a huge role in giving us confidence and motivation. However, due to genetic variance and environmental factors, melanin particles begin to form prematurely. Melanin is the substance that provides your flesh, hair, and eyes colour. Melanocytes, which are located inside this outermost layer of the skin generate melanin. Everyone has approximately the exact number of melanocytes. Nevertheless, some individual cells contain greater melanin than others, as do certain types of melanin. The darker the skin is, hence more melanin one has. Melanin can accumulate in certain regions and produce skin discolouration, which physicians sometimes refer to as hyperpigmentation. Whenever sections of the skin are deeper than others, this is referred to as hyperpigmentation. In this article we will be looking into the types of melanin, where are they produced in the body, hyperpigmentation caused by excessive melanin and the treatment methods that can reduce dark spots and hyperpigmentation for clearer skin. These methods also include the PicoCure Pigmentation Removal Treatment found at New Beauty Australia- a dual-technology laser energy pigmentation treatment that removes excess melanin to give you a radiant, even and spotless face!
What benefits does melanin provide us with?
Melanin is a form of pigment which is created by melanocytes. Melanin determines the colour of one's skin, hair and eyes and it provides us protection against UV rays emitted by the Sun.
What causes hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is caused by factors that include stress, air pollution, excessive exposure to sunlight, illnesses and others. When melanin deposits under the skin, dark patches along with other hyperpigmentation issues begin to form.
Who is suited for the PicoCure Pigmentation Removal Treatment?
This pigmentation treatment is suited for individuals with uneven skin tone, aging skin, enlarged pores, oily skin, and skin pigmentation issues. The PicoCure Pigmentation Removal Treatment is a non-invasive pigmentation removal treatment that does not utilise any external medications, incisions or surgeries.
How many sessions of the PicoCure Pigmentation Removal Treatment do I require?
After a careful evaluation with our in-house wellness professionals, we normally recommend under 6 to 8 sessions to see the effective brightening and tightening results of the skin.
Is there any downtime after the PicoCure Pigmentation Removal Treatment?
The PicoCure Pigmentation Removal Treatment does not need you to allocate a special recovery period as you can return to your regular routines almost immediately after the treatment. Do keep in mind that your skin may become dry over the course of 2 to 3 days after the treatment. During that time, remember to apply extra moistening creams to help relieve any skin discomfort.
