Can pigmentation be treated?

Skin pigmentation is an uninvited skin cosmetic concern that comes in various forms like age spots, freckles, sunspots, dark patches, stains, moles, or birthmarks. Hyperpigmentation implies to darkening of the skin caused due to genetic tendency to develop skin pigmentation easily after any skin abuse. Several causes of pigmentation include sunlight/UV exposure, hormonal fluctuations, certain medications like tricyclic antidepressants or antimalarial drugs, underlying medical conditions such as hemochromatosis and Addison’s disease, or inflammation including lupus, acne, eczema, or any skin injury that result in more melanin production by the melanocytes in certain body areas. 


Pigmentation can be treated but it may not be permanently cured because this skin problem is multifactorial and no single therapy would work in such a case. However, dramatic results can be achieved by a more holistic, multitherapy approach offered by the Best Skin Specialist in Delhi at Rakshaa Skin Clinic. To prevent pigmentation in the long term, some maintenance may be required.

Chemical peels


Chemical peels are aesthetic treatments that involve the use of chemical solutions/acids to exfoliate the skin and removes the dead skin layer. These acids help remove an invariable amount of affected skin cells across the treatment site with minimal color changes or scarring of the skin surface. There are different types of chemical peels depending upon how deeply they carry out skin exfoliation (superficial, medium-depth, and deep peels). They have natural and essential skincare ingredients like salicylic acid, lactic acid, and glycolic acid which resurfaces the skin and also increase cell turnover.  


For minor hyperpigmentation medium chemical peels (beta-hydroxy acids) can be used while for moderate to severe hyperpigmentation, deep peels (such as trichloroacetic acid and phenol) work bests. All types of hyperpigmentation such as sunspots, melasma, freckles, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can be lifted by chemical peels. Chemical peels can be tailored according to the client’s needs and preferences so that they are safe on all skin colors and be used on any area of the body including arms, chest, backs, and legs. It can even be spread on large skin stretches.

Laser therapy


Dermatologists in Delhi at Rakshaa Skin Clinic also use lasers to treat hyperpigmentation as they require little recovery or downtime. These lasers can be ablative (intense kind of lasers that help remove the topmost skin layer) or non-ablative (which heats the skin dermis without harming the skin surface). Anyone who is having uneven skin tone, dull face, or dark spots/patches. The non-ablative lasers help in getting rid of deep-seated pigmentation by encouraging collagen growth underneath the skin surface, thereby tightening the skin around and improving skin tone. The different types of laser therapies that can be used for treating pigmentation include-


  • Fractionated lasers (such as carbon dioxide and erbium glass lasers)- These work by creating microthermal zones in the area to be treated. This way the heat generated by the lasers reaches the dermal layers to get rid of excess melanin that causes deep pigmentation. 
  • Q-switched: Nd: YAG lasers- The pigmented skin is exposed to the light beam from these lasers which directly targets the melanin pigments and causes their thermal breakdown without affecting the surrounding skin cells. 


Using fractionated radiofrequency energy, skin discoloration can be improved to great extent. Intense pulsed light therapy can benefit in the treatment of freckles, rosacea, sun damage, as well as different vascular or pigmented lesions. Acoustic lasers can be used for reducing brown spots or melasma. For deep pigmentation, a 1064nm laser is effective and does not damage the skin surface. 




Microdermabrasion procedure helps to mechanically exfoliate the upper skin layers, thereby improving skin tone and texture. In this treatment, the skin expert may either use a stream of microcrystals or a diamond-tipped wand that causes skin abrasion or rejuvenate the skin. This can be used to reduce age spots and dark spots left behind by acne scars, brighten the dull skin complexion, and tone down the melasma. This option to treat pigmentation is beneficial for all skin types if performed correctly and post-procedure care instructions are followed.
