How To Remove Pigmentation Marks From The Face  -  3 Tips To Improve Your Complexion

Removing pigmentation marks from the face is a problem that affects millions of people around the world. Although the condition causes no physical pain, it can be embarrassing, and causes distress to those unfortunate enough to suffer from it. Happily, the affects are are almost always temporary, with most cases fading away in time. For more persistent areas of darker skin, a helping hand is sometimes needed to help reduce their appearance. Here are 3 ways to help with those stubborn pigmentation marks.

First, let's take a brief look at the reason for those darker patches of skin.

Visible face pigmentation, is a condition known as hyperpigmentation. The darker patches of skin occur when the body produces too much of a chemical called "melanin". Melanin is responsible for the color or pigment of your skin, so too much will leave visible darker patches. People with darker skin tones are also more prone to hyperpigmentation. Skin trauma is a major culprit of this condition, with outbreaks of acne being top of the list. Other factors can contribute, such as over exposure to the sun.

Although often upsetting for the individual, there are a number of treatments for hyperpigmentation that can reduce, or even eliminate altogether, the appearance of dark spots. Here are 3 ways that can help.

  • Microdermabrasion

Microdemabrasion is an exfoliating technique using special equipment that removes dead skin particles from the top layer of skin. Not to be confused with dermabrasion, which is a process that surgically removes layers of skin, microdermabrasion is a non invasive "scrubbing" technique that can be performed by your local skin care clinic or boutique. How many treatments you need will depend how acute your condition is, and will be determined by your skin care professional, but will normally range from between 4 and 8 visits. At the time of writing, prices per treatment can range from between $75 and $150.

  • Natural Treatments

The least expensive, but nonetheless no less effective for some, are the natural treatments for hyperpigmentation. There are all manner of plant and plant extracts that will help reduce the the appearance of darker patches of skin. Lemon juice contains a bleaching agent, so when applied to the skin is very effective. Potato also contains a bleaching agent and applying potato peel or potato juice helps. Aloa vera and vitamin E oil are excellent for the skin and can also be tried. A little known but very effective option is licorice extract, it's a little more potent, so try a test area first for any reactions.

  • Hyperpigmentation Creams

The option that most people go for is hyperpigmentation creams, and with good reason. The development of hyperpigmentation creams has advanced ten fold in the last few years with some excellent products available on the market. Do your research before buying any kind of "miracle cure" cream, as the better known brands can come with a hefty price tag, and don't always do what they say they will. Some of the lesser known brands have had excellent results and reviews, so remember that "expensive" doesn't always mean "good."

Remember that although hyperpigmentation can be embarrassing, it is treatable.
