The Best Hypo-pigmentation Treatment
Hypo-pigmentation, Hyper-pigmentation, What To Do About It?
This post explains some of the different ways hypo-pigmentation, hyper-pigmentation, birthmarks, freckles, and other skin blemishes are treated.
Home treatments, eTwo, chemical products, microdermabrasion and using a derma roller are some of the popular pigmentation treatments. The question is, which one is the best pigmentation treatment? Read the whole post to find out.
eTwo is similar to chemical skin peels but offers fast recovery of skin. eTwo uses bipolar radio frequencies and infrared heat to make a change in the skin, although it is not clear how well this works over the long term.
eTwo is pain free treatment and is preferred by some people over chemical peels. The technology used in eTwo allows the user for an area specific treatment. The only disadvantage with eTwo is that is very expensive with prices ranging to $900 per session.
This treatment has become popular in recent days. Microdermabrasion or scraping of the top layer of skin is fairly effective in treating pigmentation problems. It promotes the production of collagen. Collagen makes skin elastic and firm. The treatment costs around $200 and is the one of the best treatments for people with severe acne or pigmentation problems.
This is a micro needle based treatment with relatively little pain, although I'm not sure what that means. An anesthetic cream is used to control the pain. There will be a little discomfort in this treatment, as it pierces the skin with needles. Derma roller works by skin stimulation, and it allows the skin to repair by itself by first damaging it a little. Derma roller therapy sessions start at $200.
The most inexpensive solution to pigmentation problems is doing a homemade treatment using household items from your fridge or pantry. Lemon juice, pineapple, papaya, natural vinegar and even parsley are said to be effective home remedies for pigmentation problems.
Vitamin C, or anything containing ascorbic acid or citric acid is meant to be the best home remedy for hypo-pigmentation or hyper-pigmentation.
The mixture has to be applied to the affected area regularly, every day, for good basically, if you want to get any lasting effect at all. Results take months or even years to be visible on the skin in any of these homemade treatments.
This is a big drawback of using food items to do the job of a chemical product. It just simply won't work all that well, and neither will any of the other solutions mentioned above, when compared to the products below and in the sidebar of this site.
Skin Lightening Creams
Skin lightening creams that are approved by the FDA are very effective in pigmentation treatment, as long as they are safe and contain the right chemicals.
These creams should contain safe, natural ingredients like alpha arbutin, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, kojic acid, sepiwhite FSH etc. Only products with these active ingredients make them safe on the skin.
The skin bleaching products sold by Tonique Skin Care contain arbutin and glycolic acid as the main ingredients, along with a whole range of other good stuff, like tea tree oil. This makes the products on the toniqueskincare.com website safe and they of course are FDA approved, because the company is based in Maryland, USA.
