When summer and holidays come to the end, it often turns out that in addition to great memories, thousands of photos and new acquaintances, other souvenirs remain with us. The beautiful tan comes off after a while, and the face shows unsightly discoloration. If we want to get rid of them, we must use the help of a specialist.
More than half of the discoloration on our skin is the result of the sun's rays, which is why proper sun protection and reduction of time spent "in the sun" are so important, especially when it shines most intensively. It is the discoloration that "gives us years" (some even say that they age us much more than wrinkles), and when they appear, fighting them can be really difficult and even the most expensive brightening and exfoliating cosmetics, although they will certainly help us reduce slightly their visibility and even out skin tone will not remove discoloration.
What are hyperpigmentation?
Discoloration is pigmentation - melanin deposits of dark pigment in our skin and iris of the eyes. The cause of hyperpigmentation may include hormonal disorders, genetic predisposition, some diseases and medications, and UV radiation on our skin. Today, I would like us to focus on discoloration resulting from excessive skin exposure to the sun.
Get to know the treatments that will help you eliminate them.
Aesthetic medicine versus discoloration
When discolorations appear, the only really effective solution that can not only significantly reduce them, but also remove them are aesthetic medicine treatments.
Phototherapy Forever Young BBL (BroadBand Light)
BBL phototherapy fights well with discoloration, thanks to it we can effectively reduce and eliminate "holiday souvenirs", resulting from excessive skin exposure to the sun. But this is not the end of this very modern treatment also perfectly eliminates the signs of aging, thanks to it your skin will look young and healthy for a long time.
How it's working?
Light energy produced during the treatment gently warms the upper layers of the skin, stimulating fibroblasts to produce collagen, activates regenerative processes and, which is very important in the case of discoloration, reduces excess melanin. BBL phototherapy restores our skin's natural beauty, healthy even color, smoothness and elasticity. After the treatment, the skin at the discoloration site becomes darker, but do not worry, it is completely normal and in this case a very desirable symptom. This is because the intense light emitted deep into your skin is captured by melanin, which in turn is "burned out" and with the growth of new skin cells "goes out". You have to be patient, discolorations can "get out" to the skin's surface for a few or even several days after the procedure.
Thanks to phototherapy, we effectively get rid of shallow discoloration to make it happen, sometimes you only need one treatment, and sometimes after 2-3 weeks you need to do another. Everything is very individual, which is why the right approach to the patient, proper assessment of discoloration and the effects obtained after treatment are extremely important. The treatment does not require recovery, usually you can go back to daily activities and even perform delicate makeup immediately after it is performed. Remember, however, that the skin after phototherapy is very sensitive, therefore it cannot be exposed to sunlight.
SkinPen Microneedling with PRP
It is also a procedure that helps restore the skin's youthful appearance and get rid of sun spots. The SkinPen, precisely targeted at a selected part of the skin, removes the changed layer of skin while activating the healing process, as a result new cells quickly take the place of the ones removed during the procedure, discoloration "disappears" or decreases significantly, and the skin gains radiance and youthful appearance. The number of treatments to be performed is always decided by a specialist who will first assess the condition of your skin and then carefully monitor the results. It is also very important to be able to precisely adjust the intensity of the procedure individually to each patient. Impatiently I can say that the first effects are noticeable after 2-4 days after the procedure, so really very quickly. Remember that your skin after SkinPen Microneedling with PRP will be very sensitive to UV rays, so you should avoid direct exposure to the sun, not to mention the use of tanning beds. It is also necessary to use cosmetics that guarantee maximum protection against UV radiation until the irritated skin has completely healed.
Removal of discoloration is much more difficult if we are dealing with deep discoloration, then first you need to find out the reason for their occurrence. Very often they appear as a result of diseases or disorders in the functioning of our body and require the use of drug therapy. Removing them is more complicated and unfortunately we can't always get rid of them completely.
Remember that before you decide to perform any treatment in the field of aesthetic medicine, you should consult a specialist who will conduct a detailed interview with you about your health condition and if it is possible, will choose the appropriate treatment for you and individually adjust the length of the proposed therapy . It is very important to choose a place where experienced specialits will take care of you, who will always provide you with professional help and advice. I am convinced that such people will meet in my REVIVE CLINIC, where you will also find very modern treatments, know their scope of action, contraindications and effects that you can expect from them. And for the future remember about proper sun protection, prevention is better than cure.
