What is Body Pigmentation

Body pigmentation, also known as hyperpigmentation, is a skin condition where patches of skin appear darker than the surrounding areas. This occurs due to an excess of melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour. Various factors, including sun exposure, hormonal changes, genetics, and certain medications, can reduce melanin production and cause body pigmentation.

Common types of body pigmentation include age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
A tailored treatment programme will be recommended after a thorough consultation with Dr Natasha Verma. This may include peels, topical skincare and microneedling.

Chemical Peels for Hyperpigmentation

Chemical peels are a highly effective treatment option for hyperpigmentation. They help diminish pigmentation and even out the skin tone.
There are different types of chemical peels, each with different strengths & they are categorised based on their potency. The strength of the peel will depend on the severity of the hyperpigmentation.
• Superficial chemical peels are the mildest type of chemical peel. They treat mild hyperpigmentation, such as age spots and sun damage.
• Medium chemical peels treat moderate hyperpigmentation, such as melasma.
• Deep chemical peels are the most potent type of chemical peel. They treat severe hyperpigmentation, such as scarring from acne or burns.

During a chemical peel treatment, the chemicals penetrate deep into the skin to dissolve clusters of melanin that cause dark spots. The outermost layers of skin are gently removed, stimulating the production of new, healthy skin cells for a smoother, more even complexion.

Why choose skin NV

Professional skin care solutions from a qualified doctor.

Step-by-step procedure

1.

Prior To The Treatment

During your consultation with Dr Verma, an esteemed aesthetic doctor, you will carefully evaluate your skin's condition and develop a personalised skincare regimen tailored to your unique needs. This customised regimen will be designed to prepare your skin for the upcoming chemical peel treatment, ultimately enhancing the results and promoting a faster and more efficient outcome. The treatment can yield enhanced results by adequately preparing your skin beforehand, bringing you closer to achieving your desired aesthetic goals.

2.

During The Treatment

A specialised solution will be gently applied to your thoroughly cleansed skin during the treatment session. This solution works diligently to promote the exfoliation of accumulated dead skin cells, which may contribute to the presence of fine lines and hyperpigmentation. As a result, the healthy skin cells beneath will be unveiled, leading to a more balanced and even-toned appearance. This transformative effect will help rejuvenate your skin, revealing its natural radiance and promoting a more youthful and vibrant complexion.

3.

What To Expect

It is common to experience a gentle tingling or tickling sensation, which will gradually subside as the treatment progresses, ensuring your comfort throughout the session. Following the procedure, you may notice mild redness and a warm sensation in the treated area. Rest assured, these temporary effects typically resolve within 24 to 48 hours. It is important to note that you may experience mild, dry and flaky skin in certain areas as part of the healing process. However, these flakes will slough off within a week, revealing rejuvenated and radiant skin.

4.

Aftercare

To minimise the risk of potential side effects or infection, Dr Verma recommends refraining from touching the treated area and avoiding applying makeup for 24-48 hours. This precautionary measure helps ensure a safe and optimal healing process. It is also crucial to resist the temptation to pick or peel any dry skin that may occur, as this can result in unwanted complications such as hyperpigmentation or scarring. Instead, it is highly encouraged to follow a gentle skincare regimen, focusing on nourishing and hydrating the skin. Additionally, regular application of sunscreen is strongly advised to protect the treated area from harmful UV rays and maintain the desired results. By adhering to these guidelines, you can enjoy a relaxing recovery process while allowing your skin to rejuvenate and flourish under the expert care of Dr Verma.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the types of chemical peels for hyperpigmentation on the body?

The chemical peel that is best for you depends on the severity of your hyperpigmentation and skin type. You must talk to your doctor or a dermatologist to determine which type of peel is right for you.
Here are some of the most common chemical peels used to treat hyperpigmentation:
• Glycolic acid is a light chemical peel that works best on mild dark spots and hyperpigmentation cases. It doesn't penetrate deep into the skin, so it is suitable for those with sensitive skin or darker skin tones.
• Trichloroacetic acid peels: TCA is a more potent chemical peel and works best on deeper layers of the skin to reduce wrinkles, scars, and pigmentation issues such as melasma or sunspots.
Jessner's peels are a combination of glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and citric acid. Jessner's peels are a good option for people with sensitive skin.

What is the Best Chemical Peel for Asian Skin?

There is a higher risk of PIH with certain treatments, medium to deep peels included, so it's important to see a professional who knows how to use these treatments to achieve your results with minimal side effects.

Can you get a chemical peel on your whole body?

Chemical peels are typically used to treat wrinkles, discoloured skin, and facial scars. However, they can also treat some skin conditions on other parts of the body, such as the hands, neck, and chest. Depending on the type of chemical peel you choose and your individual needs, it may be possible to get a chemical peel on your whole body.

The type of body peel that is best for you will depend on the severity of your skin condition and type. It is important to talk to Dr Natasha to determine which peel is right for you.
