What is a Pigmentation?

Pigmentation means coloring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the color of your skin. Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Special cells in the skin make melanin. When these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Some pigmentation disorders affect just patches of skin. Others affect your entire body.

Pigmentation Treatment

If your body makes too much melanin, your skin gets darker. Pregnancy, Addison's disease, and sun exposure all can make your skin darker. If your body makes too little melanin, your skin gets lighter. Vitiligo is a condition that causes patches of light skin. Albinism is a genetic condition affecting a person's skin. A person with albinism may have no color, lighter than normal skin color, or patchy missing skin color. Infections, blisters and burns can also cause lighter skin.Hyperpigmentation can be caused by sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries, including those related to acne vulgaris.People with darker Asian, Mediterranean, or African skin tones are also more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially if they have excess sun exposure.

Many forms of hyperpigmentation are caused by an excess production of melanin. Hyperpigmentation can be diffuse or focal, affecting such areas as the face and the back of the hands. Melanin is produced by melanocytes at the lower layer of the epidermis. Melanin is a class of pigment responsible for producing color in the body in places such as the eyes, skin, and hair. As the body ages, elanocyte distribution becomes less diffuse and its regulation less controlled by the body. UV light stimulates melanocyte activity, and where concentrations of the cells are denser than surrounding areas, hyperpigmentation is effected. Can also be caused by using skin lightening lotions. Another form of hyperpigmentation is post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. These are dark and discolored spots that appear on the skin following acne that has healed.

Frequently Asked Question

Why do areas of pigmentation appear on the skin?
Dark spots that appear on the skin are usually caused by sun damage and inflammation related to acne. Nearly all forms of hyperpigmentation are a result of excess melanin production, the protein that gives color to our skin. The body responds to sun exposure by increasing its production of melanin to protect the skin from further damage. These dark spots are commonly referred to as sun spots or age spots and can take years to form. Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation occurs when a pimple or other skin injury triggers an overproduction of melanin. Hyperpigmentation is also associated with hormonal changes. Melasma, also known as the “mask of pregnancy,” is the appearance of dark spots across the cheeks and nose during pregnancy.

Will areas of pigmentation fade on their own?
Spots that occur as a result of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation will eventually fade, but it typically takes between three months and two years for the spots to become undetectable. Sun spots and age spots will not resolve on their own, but there are many treatments available to fade them from sight, including Metamorphosis.

How does Metamorphosis treat excess or abnormal skin pigmentation?
Metamorphosis is not a skin bleaching system, which is an unsafe treatment for pigmentation and rarely recommended by dermatologists. Our product is not designed to change your skin’s natural color, but rather to remove layers damage and uneven pigmentation so that the skin is restored to its previous youthful state. In addition to minimizing existing pigmentation, our product addresses the root cause of hyperpigmentation – the inflammation that leads to excessive pigment production. Metamorphosis works in three ways to treat excess pigmentation: 1. Shedding of old, superficial skin to reduce existing hyperpigmentation. 2. Decreasing new pigmentation production and its distribution. 3. Reducing the triggers of new pigment production, including inflammation and free radical damage.

What skin types are prone to hyperpigmentation?
All skin types are prone to the formation of dark spots as a result of sun exposure and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. People with darker skin tend to have darker areas of pigmentation than people with lighter skin, but pigmentation spots tend to be more obvious on fair-skinned people due to the contrast in colors.

How can I prevent sun spots from appearing?
The use of a daily SPF moisturizer and avoidance of the sun during its strongest hours can help prevent sun spots from forming; however, sunscreen will not prevent sun spots that have already begun forming from appearing. When undergoing any type of treatment to lighten areas of pigmentation, it is important to continue to use sunscreen so that the future pigmentation problems can be prevented.
