Hyper-Pigmentation

 

 

Pigmentation is something everyone will experience at some point in their life, for some its not a bother but for a lot of other people it can be an unwanted struggle or even an insecurity.

The one thing to know about pigmentation is that it is completely normal and is a sign of your body functioning to its fullest potential.

There are many treatments for pigmentation ranging from certain types of chemical peels and IPL treatments but Studies have shown the most effective treatment for hyper-pigmentation is Skin Needling.

To understand why skin needling is the best resort we have to understand what pigmentation is and why we get it.

 

What is Hyper-pigmentation?

Melanin is the pigment produced in the body that is responsible for the natural colouring of the skin. Melanin is produced by the melanocyte cells. Over production of melanin in the body is the cause of hyper-pigmentation.

What causes Hyper-pigmentation?

 Over production of melanin can also be caused by a wide range of other aspects such as; Medication, pregnancy, Addisons disease, hormone fluctuations, age and sun exposure. Living in Australia sun exposure is the most common cause for unwanted hyper-pigmentation.

 

How can I treat Hyper-Pigmentation?

There are many in salon treatments as well as home care products on the market right now. It is so easy to get confused with what actually works and what is a gimmick.

Studies have shown that the most effective and minimally invasive treatment to help with your Hyper-pigmentation is Skin-Needling.

Although skin needling can sound and seem like a scary avenue to venture through, it is the most effective. Through the years the beauty industry have perfected skin needling making it less invasive and minimal downtime after your procedure.

Skin needling easily aids in correcting hyper-pigmentation without damaging or removing the epidermis (top layer of the skin).

Needling involves small surgical needles attached to an electric pen to easily glide over the skin and create micro channels in the skin causing the wound healing response causing collagen and elastin cells to produce at a faster rate towards the micro channels.

By using the needling method the unwanted pigment is pulled to the surface over your course of treatments, eventually minimising or even eliminating the Hyper-pigmentation. As a pleasant bonus your skin with feel and look, firmer and tighter.

For Hyper-pigmentation we always recommend 3-6 treatments to see the best results. Skin needling sessions begin at $199.

As effective as skin needling is we also recommend a consistent skin care routine that not only targets your pigmentation but also soothes and repairs your skin after your treatment. Even blend serum from skinstitut is one of the favourites and a highly sought after product for evening out the complexion while nourishing and brightening the skin.

You need to have all your bases covered when is comes to your daily skincare routine. Starting with a good quality cleanser such as the gentle cleanser to remove dirt and deeply cleanse the skin or the lactic cleanser to refine and hydrate.

As well as using the even blend serum, adding a small amount of the 100% vitamin c powder into the serum can give it an extra boost of brightness. 

Add moisture back into the skin with a nourishing moisturiser and a spritz of multi active mist. As well as always using your SPF at very least 30+. With skinstituts package deals you can obtain 5 products for just $159 or one product for $49.

This routine along with your treatment plan and consistent skincare routine, will give you the best results and best bang for your buck.
