Pigmentation Treatment

Pigmentation Treatment

 

 

What to Consider when treating Pigmentation?

Treating pigmentation is not an easy feat, because pigmentation is not a simple skin disorder. Preparing your skin for treatment is valuable as it will limit possible complications and improve your ultimate outcome. Correctly preparing your skin will also cut down on the frequency of treatments because your skin will be in the best possible condition before beginning treatment.

 

 

The duration of skin preparation will depend on your pigmentation type and extent of pigmentation, as well as your skin type. Darker skin require lengthier preparation protocols as treatment of pigmentation on phototypes 4-6 needs to be approached much slower and gentler to be effective.

Once the cause, type and extent of your pigmentation has been assessed and determined by your Skin Therapist, a full medical questionnaire will be completed, taking in a variety of other factors, before a completed treatment plan can be designed.

 

Medical History

Your Skin Assessment will include a full medical history; including chronic diseases, genetic disorders, allergies, medication and previous responses to medical treatments. It is important for your Skin Therapist to get an entire overview of your medical profile; as this will alert him / her to potential sensitivities and problems that could occur. Your medical history should be updated at each consultation, to ensure changes are acknowledged and taken into consideration; such as medication, which can affect the outcome of your treatment.

(1) Lifestyle

Whilst undergoing pigmentation treatment, it is advised to limit outdoor activity in order to avoid damage to the skin. If you live an active lifestyle, you may find the Dermaceutic DD Creams to be useful.

Your Skin Therapist can also advise you on correct sun protection and even protective clothing that will mitigate sun damage.

 

(2) Treatment Plan and Downtime

The duration of your treatment plan will depend on the number of treatments required. This is highly dependent on how well the skin responds to the treatments. It is essential that your budget is discussed with your Skin Therapist beforehand as there is no use on embarking on a yearlong treatment plan when your budget will not allow for it. Similarly, the amount of downtime that can be expected is important to understand. Some treatments are gentler than others and there is minimal downtime, whereas other treatments require a greater length of downtime which you must be made aware of, so that you can plan accordingly.

 

(3) Expectations

Your Skin Therapist will discuss your expectations of the treatment as well as the expected outcomes. It is very important that you have a realistic idea of what outcome can be achieved when treating pigmentation.

 

Remember that pigmentation is a lifelong disorder, and if you present a predisposition to pigmentation, it is not something that you can make go away forever. However, you can treat it, improve it and manage it.
