Over­com­ing hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL -

The colour of our skin is of great cul­tural and so­cial im­por­tance. Fairer skin has been termed more beau­ti­ful or of a higher so­cial class since an­cient times.

In to­day’s world, the quest for fair skin con­tin­ues, par­tic­u­larly in Asian pop­u­la­tions.

hy­per­pig­men­tary dis­or­ders such as freck­les, melasma, age spots and mot­tled skin are a trait de­ter­mined by one’s genes, ex­ter­nal en­vi­ron­ment and en­docrinal change.

Dam­ag­ing Uv rays trig­ger the pro­duc­tion of melanin which dark­ens our skin tones. hor­monal changes dur­ing preg­nancy or dur­ing a course of med­i­ca­tion fur­ther in­creases our vul­ner­a­bil­ity to melasma, caus­ing symmetrical patches on the face.

Skin trauma such as acne or in­jury can also cause post-in­flam­ma­tory hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion or PIh. As we age, spots also be­gin to ap­pear as brown patches on the face, fore­arms and hands.

In nor­mal cases, pig­mented cells will slough off as part of the nor­mal skin cell turnover process. how­ever, slow cell me­tab­o­lism or lack of mois­ture re­sults in the dead cells ac­cu­mu­lat­ing. The de­posited pig­mented cells clus­ter and pre­sent them­selves as vis­i­ble coloured le­sions on the skin sur­face.
