Learn About Melasma & PIH

About Hyperpigmentation and Melasma: they are two of the most common skin concerns. Above all, they are more difficult to treat as there are many underlying causes. Accordingly, each pigmentation type is slightly different and each one responds differently to certain treatments. Across the skin spectrum, Melasma is directly related to hormone levels.  Including: changes during pregnancy, menopause, thyroid conditions, medications (birth control pills), sun exposure, and exacerbated by heat. Adjacent to Hyperpigmentation is the general darkening of specific areas of the face. It is usually induced through sun exposure after, acne scarring, and aggressive skin treatments.

Benefits of Melasma Treatment: Visible Results! No Pain! No Down Time! No Peeling! No Redness!

Again, At Skin Perfect Brothers, we’ve been treating pigmentation for over 12 years. Our Spectra Laser for Melasma utilizes a minimal heat source. Albeit, treatment does not involve any peeling of the skin. All in All, unlike other laser or chemical peel methods, this laser penetrates deep into the dermal layer. Afterward, it shatters the patch of Melasma into small, absorbable particles through shockwave technology. Alongside treating darkness in the skin tone, these particles are detoxed from the body through the lymphatic system. Also, the Spectra Laser is FDA approved for treatment of melasma. Unlike the popular Picosure laser which may worsen the condition of active melasma.

How can I tell Sunspots/ Pigmentation apart from Melasma?

Sunspots are

  • Discrete and have defined borders altogether
  • Darker in appearance since they more superficial around the skin
  • Most spots circular in shape as they are spots
  • Can occur on any part of the face

Melasma is

  • Bigger than sunspots, borders not well defined as a result
  • Lighter than sunspots because they are deeper
  • Particularly patchy 
  • Around cheek area(s) on both sides, although other parts of the face can be involved as well.

With patients who have Melasma, you will need a laser treatment that can penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. Be that as it may, IPL cannot do that. We still have a solution for you! Because our laser is ideal for ethnic skin!

Between Melasma and PIH, what is Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)?

Besides Melasma, Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) is also known as Pigmented Scars. Oftentimes our skin can become injured or show redness beneath the surface. Some examples often include overexposure to the sun or heat, acne, laser treatments that cause peeling between the skin and beyond. But this also includes misuse/overuse of products such as Retin A, Hydroquinone, home chemical peels, or bleaching creams. So, whenever this happens, the skin will heal itself through inflammation.

How is inflammation caused?

By and large, inflammation causes melanocytes (spot producing cells) to send melanin or pigment to the skin’s surface to protect it. Certainly, this pigment can form spots such as acne spots or blotches throughout areas of the face. Comparatively, sometimes PIH can mimic melasma. Consequently, many people who attempt to treat melasma after various aggressive treatments may actually have PIH resting on top of their melasma. Conversely, this is usually because both can exist together. However, the good news is both can be treated the same way.

Differences Between Melasma and PIH

Definitely, PIH is not as deep as melasma. Therefore, it can respond to a Spectral Q-Switch laser faster than melasma. Prior to the treatment, we generally recommend preparing the skin with bleaching cream for about 6 weeks. Due to treatment, this will minimize any new development of PIH despite doubts. During treatment, we recommend completing a minimum of 12 Spectral Laser treatments followed by light, superficial Fraxel Dual Laser treatment. Equally, we also implement cooling measures before, during, and after treatment to prevent further inflammation.

Suppression Therapy

Sunlight especially increases the formation of any type of hyperpigmentation. In addition to avoiding sun exposure, “Suppression Therapy” is highly effective in combating the symptoms of hyperpigmentation. Explicitly, Suppression Therapy is the daily use of cosmeceuticals that suppress the activation of melanocytes in sunlight.

Factors that stimulate hyperpigmentation:

  • Genetics
  • Exposure to Sunlight
  • Dryness and Inflammation
  • Pregnancy and hormonal contraceptives
  • Hormonal irregularities
  • Aging
  • Stress hormones triggered by lack of sleep
  • Fatigue
  • Smoke
  • Inflammatory diet such as fast food
