MELASMA

Search

Hormonal influences are the main cause of a particular kind of hyperpigmentation known as melasma or chloasma. It’s particularly common among women and is thought to occur when the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone stimulate the overproduction of melanin when the skin is exposed to the sun.

Melasma occurs as a brown to brown-gray patches typically on the face but may also occur on the forearms and chest. The distribution is often symmetric and occurs primarily in pubertal girls and women although adolescent boys may also be affected. While melasma is usually idiopathic, it can be associated with pregnancy or the ingestion of oral contraceptives. Lesions tend to increase in size and degree of hyperpigmentation after sun exposure.

Pigmentation often wanes after pregnancy or discontinuation of oral contraceptives. However, treatment with potent topical sunscreens, bleaching agents (hydroquinone) or pigmented-lesion lasers may be helpful.

Melasma or chloasma spots are similar in appearance to age spots but are larger areas of darkened skin that appear most often as a result of hormonal changes. Pregnancy, for example, can trigger overproduction of melanin that causes the “mask of pregnancy” on the face and darkened skin on the abdomen and other areas. Women who take birth control pills may also develop hyperpigmentation because their bodies undergo similar kind of hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. If one is really bothered by the pigment, the birth control pills should be stopped.

Changes in skin color can result from outside causes. For example, skin diseases such as acne may leave dark spots after the condition clears. Other causes of dark spots are injuries to the skin, including some surgeries. Freckles are small brown spots that can appear anywhere on the body, but are most common on the face and arms. Freckles are an inherited characteristic.

Sunspots are temporary phenomena on the Sun‘s photosphere that appear as spots darker than the surrounding areas. They are regions of reduced surface temperature caused by concentrations of magnetic field flux that inhibit convection.

White spots on skin tend to show up on the sun-exposed areas of the arms and legs. They differ from brown spots not only in color, but also in why they form. Brown spots are due to excess pigmentation, but white spots occur when skin’spigment is destroyed from years of sun exposure.

Freckles, age spots, and other darkened skin patches can become darker or more pronounced when the skin is exposed to the sun. This happens because melanin absorbs the energy of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays in order to protect the skin from overexposure. The usual result of this process is skin tanning, which tends to darken areas that are already hyperpigmented. Wearing a sunscreen is a must. The sunscreen must be “broad spectrum” (i.e. it blocks both UVA and UVB). A single day of excess sun can undo months of treatment.

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.

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.

Treatments are commonly used to minimize acne scars and hyperpigmentation, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and correct sun damage issues such as age spots. Foremost, what differentiates skin peels and laser treatments is the procedure itself. … There are two types of lasers: ablative and non-ablative.

It is better to stay away from Hydroquinone and use plant-based skincare instead. The Super white bio serum a plant-based serum is a great alternative to hydroquinone. This organic serum can be used morning and night. The Gorgeous peel, a skin peel with TCA (a relative of vinegar (acetic acid.) When TCA is applied to the skin, it causes the top layers of cells to dry up and peel off over a period of several days to one week.) and multi-acid great to even out the complexion and keep the skin without dead skin cells so that when you apply the lightening serum, it will penetrate the skin better and deeper.

Sun Spots

Brown spots, like age spots or freckles, are small, flat areas no bigger than the tip of your finger. We treat those spots with Intense Pulse Light treatments. IPL treatments are an easy way to target the dark pigmenting cells without damaging the regular skin cells. These treatments deliver energy to darkly pigmented cells. Then those cells die and flake off. The cells without the dark pigment don’t absorb the energy.

Chemical peels can also be very effective with sunspots but sometimes require several treatments. If you choose this route, preparation is key.

Damage from UV rays can cause major changes in the skin’s appearance and structure, including thinner skin, drier skin, less elasticity, increase in wrinkles or sagging, and reduced production of collagen and elastin.

Melasma

Melasma is a common skin problem that typically appears as brown or gray patches. It most commonly occurs on the face, especially on cheeks, the bridge of the nose, forehead, chin, and upper lip. However, melasma can also develop on parts of the body that receive sun exposure, including the forearms and neck. Although it is not yet clear what causes melasma, the American Academy of Dermatology suggests that sun exposure, a change in hormones, and irritating skin care products can all contribute to the development of the skin condition. Furthermore, women and people with darker skin complexions are more likely to develop melasma.

Sun Damage

Excessive sun exposure is the most significant cause of aging skin. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun contributes to premature skin aging and skin texture changes, among other conditions:

  • Coarse wrinkles, especially on the back of the neck
  • Fine wrinkles caused by thinning of the skin, especially on the forearms and back of hands
  • Excessive bruising from minor trauma
  • Pigment changes, such as brown spots, freckles, age spots, and liver spots
  • White spots on legs, arms, and the back of hands
  • Red areas on the sides of the neck
  • Moles – some of which can develop into skin cancer
  • Pre-cancerous skin changes, including actinic keratosis

What is melasma?

Melasma, also called ‘chloasma’, is a common skin condition of adults in which light to dark brown or greyish pigmentation develops, mainly on the face. The name comes from melas, the Greek word for black. Although it can affect both genders and any race, it is more common in women and people with darker skin-types who live in sunny climates. Melasma usually becomes more noticeable in the summer and improves during the winter months. It is not an infection, it is not contagious and it is not due to an allergy. Also, it is not cancerous and will not change into skin cancer.

What does melasma look like?

Melasma is simply darker-than-normal skin affecting the cheeks, forehead, upper lip, nose and chin, usually in a symmetrical manner. It may be limited to the cheeks and nose or just occur overlying the jaw. The neck and, rarely, the forearms can also be affected. Areas of melasma are not raised.

WHAT CAUSES MELASMA?

The cause of melasma is complex. The pigmentation is due to overproduction of melanin by the pigment cells, melanocytes, which is taken up by the keratinocytes (epidermal melanosis) and/or deposited in the dermis (dermal melanosis, melanophages). There is a genetic predisposition to melasma, with at least one-third of patients reporting other family members to be affected. In most people, melasma is a chronic disorder.

Known triggers for melasma include:

  • Sun exposure and sun damage—this is the most important avoidable risk factor
  • Pregnancy—in affected women, the pigment often fades a few months after delivery
  • Hormone treatments—oral contraceptive pills containing estrogen and/or progesterone, hormone replacement, intrauterine devices and implants are a factor in about a quarter of affected women
  • Certain medications (including new targeted therapies for cancer), scented or deodorant soaps, toiletries, and cosmetics—these may cause a phototoxic reaction that triggers melasma, which may then persist long-term
  • Hypothyroidism (low levels of circulating thyroid hormone)

Melasma commonly arises in healthy, non-pregnant adults. Lifelong sun exposure causes deposition of pigment within the dermis and this often persists long-term.

Exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) deepens the pigmentation because it activates the melanocytes to produce more melanin.

Research is attempting to pinpoint the roles of stem cell, neural, vascular and local hormonal factors in promoting melanocyte activation.

We love these products to help with Melasma, dark pigmentation, pregnancy mask and dark spots from sun damage.

TCA PEEL GORGEOUS PEEL

Facial skin peels are great and those facial treatments that literally dissolve dead skin cells, dirt, and oil from the surface of the skin will make your skin glow.

Organic skin peels are loaded with exfoliating acids and enzymes that are naturally derived from fruits, plants, and nuts. While a peel is a chemical exfoliator that usually has a watery, gel-like consistency, a scrub offers a physical exfoliation with a gritty texture. Using a facial peel or scrub can help exfoliate the top layer of the epidermis, removing dead skin and excess oil.

Did you know that skin damage is cumulative?

Meaning, without a time machine, there’s no way for you to reverse the damage that was done decades ago. But a good peel will certainly help – and all from the comfort of your own home.

You will notice a visible improvement in your skin after one skin peel, but the best results are obtained with multiple treatments over time. Just as it takes time for skin damage to accumulate, it also takes time to reverse it. Skins of all types can benefit from exfoliation. In the case of sensitive or acne-prone skin, however, we recommend going for a peel rather than a more abrasive scrub.

Do chemical peels accelerate skin exfoliation?

Organic skin peels are great to accelerate and enhance the process of exfoliation, diminish clogged pores, and clear away dead skin cells on your face, neck, and hands. These facial peels cause the top layer of skin to peel and be removed, bringing out the fresh, younger-looking skin underneath which typically contains less wrinkles and improves the look of the skin on your face.

THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT FACIAL PEELS

Regardless of the skin issue, you’re treating, even a good face peel shouldn’t be used more than the recommended dosage. While all of these contain extremely nourishing and soothing ingredients to replace the skin surface after the process of exfoliation, the peeling effect leaves your skin sensitive to damage from repetitive use.

The strength of some of these active organic ingredients and cosmeceuticals may have an adverse effect if not designed for skin that’s chronically dehydrated or sensitive. And when all else fails – do a patch test on your arm before applying a face peel directly to your face.

Definitely use sun protection when treating your skin. This will protect your fresh skin cells from damage and reduce the harmful effects of cumulative sun exposure.

CONCLUSION: Organic skin peels are a must for a glowing skin!

If you want to get rid of an old scar, you need to understand what a scar is and what type you’re trying to get rid of.

A scar forms as part of the natural healing process following an injury. When the dermis — the second layer of skin — is damaged, your body forms collagen fibers to repair the damage, and that results in a scar.

There are different types of scars, each with defining characteristics.

Atrophic scars

Atrophic scars are characterized by the loss of tissue. They appear depressed, serrated, or flat against the upper layer of the skin. Often atrophic scars have darker skin pigmentation than other area of your skin. Examples of atrophic scars include acne scars and chickenpox scars.

Hypertrophic scars

Hypertrophic scars are characterized by excess tissue that forms over the skin as it heals. Unlike a keloid scar, it does not grow outside the injured area. Hypertrophic scars are commonly darker than other skin in the area.

Keloid Scars

Keloid scars are the result of aggressive healing and an overproduction of tissue. They are characterized by a raised, thick, puffy appearance. They are typically darker than the surrounding skin. Unlike a hypertrophic scar, keloid scars can grow beyond the injured area.

Contracture scars

Contracture scars result from large areas of skin being lost or damaged, typically from burns. They are characterized by tight, shiny skin that can restrict movement.

Acne breakouts can be frustrating, and they can also leave scars on the face and other areas of the body. Some people find that acne scars are an unwanted reminder of a painful and bothersome condition. However, acne scars do not have to be permanent, as some home remedies and medical treatments can help get rid of them.

Several medical treatments are available to help reduce acne scars. A dermatologist may recommend different procedures depending on a person’s skin type and the extent of the scarring.

  • Chemical peel
  • Laser Treatment
  • Microneedling
  • Microneedling + Glow Derma Foundation

Laser treatment can be very expensive and not always work, the downtime is also very long. The chemical peel can be great and with some downtime. Unless you choose a lighter at-home peel. The least expensive procedure with amazing results is the Microneedling + Glow Derma Foundation. This procedure can be done by a beauty professional or by yourself at home.

According to Allure Magazine, chemical peels are the secret to better looking skin.  TCA peels are in our opinion one of the best, most effective options.

TCA is considered a keratocoagulant, meaning it coagulates the skin’s proteins together. This process is a lot like cooking egg whites – the raw egg white is slightly clear and goopy and cooking it turns it white and hardens it.

TCA is a great acid that any skin enthusiast can incorporate into her or his treatment arsenal to focus on pigmentation and aging. If combined with other chemical agents (like Salicylic Acid), it can also show marked changes on acneic breakouts and the common side effects that acne leaves behind, such as post-inflammatory pigmentation.

WHAT IT’S TYPICALLY USED FOR

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) can be used in a variety of concentrations
and is used to accomplish the following:

  • Smooth fine surface wrinkles
  • Remove superficial blemishes
  • Correct pigment problems 
  • Reduce brown spots and age spots
  • Improve the texture of leathery, sun damaged skin and impart more
  • More glowing skin
  • Improve melasma
  • Treat some types of acne

WHERE IT COMES FROM AND HOW IT WORKS

You might be surprised to know that many of today’s chemical peeling agents originated from household kitchen items. Take the hydroxy acids: Tartaric Acid comes from grapes, Malic Acid from apples, Glycolic Acid from sugar cane and Lactic Acid from sour milk, to name a few. Similarly, the more potent peeling agent TCA (trichloroacetic acid), is a modified synthetic chemical based on common vinegar, or acetic acid. However, it’s a powerful solution that effectively desquamates the outer layers of the skin without posing a serious risk for toxicity.

I’m Fabulous Cosmetics range of acne care products are specifically designed to calm and quell acne prone skin and alleviate the effects of acne scars and discoloration.   Naturally, heal skin with earth derived ingredients and beautiful botanicals.  We are your “go-to” option for truly natural acne care skin products, when you want solid results and also want to avoid harsh chemicals and synthetics.  Prevent breakouts with better skincare options, made fresh for you the day you place your order.

Some dermatologists, in fact, still prefer TCA peels for treating sun damage or melasma, usually in combination with prescription creams. TCA peels may be a good option, particularly if you have melasma, Because many lasers are difficult to use when treating melasma.

Lighter TCA peel product results are considered the best approach. This is similar to other light peels that usually involve hydroxy acids such as glycolic, salicylic, or a mixture of other hydroxy acids. Medium depth TCA peels are usually done once or twice a year and do require some downtime – usually about a week – when the peeling is obvious.

How much do TCA treatments cost?

A TCA peel or treatment in a doctors office or spa can run from $300 to $1,000 for a full face peel and are often done in a series. A full face, neck, and chest will cost more.

One of our TCA products will be a much more affordable option for you. One of the great benefits to using one of our products is that you can control the gradual effects over time.

In minutes, acids lift away dead cells and trigger a lovely chain reaction: “As that topmost layer is shed, signals are sent to the living cells below to multiply and move up, to increase collagen production, to make more hyaluronic acid—to act younger. “Your skin-care products perform better after a peel because there are no dead cells impeding their penetration,” says New York City dermatologist Elliot Cultz, MD.

The utilization of the internet and social media platforms has increased considerably over the past few years. Thanks to technological advancements, the penetration of the internet and smartphones have also risen in developing countries. While these platforms have enhanced the connection between human beings, they are also responsible for making people more conscious regarding their physical appearance. Since people can now easily post their pictures online, they want their appearance to be flawless, owing to which they are widely making use of different cosmetic products. It is because of this that the global derma cosmetics market is projected to attain revenue of $76.3 billion by 2024, increasing from $52.5 billion in 2018, at a 6.5% CAGR during the forecast period (2019–2024).

A major factor that is resulting in the increasing demand for derma cosmetics is the rising disposable income of people across the globe, especially in developing countries. Take for instance India, where, until a few years ago, people used to rely on home remedies for taking care of their skin and enhancing their beauty. Now, however, things have changed, and due to globalization and urbanization, the focus has shifted toward commercial products. The increasing income of people has further allowed them to buy cosmetic and personal care products. The World Bank says that from $443.314 in 2000, the gross domestic product (GDP) per capita of India rose massively to $2,104.651 in 2017.

What Are Derma cosmetics?

Dermacosmetics are a bit different from conventional cosmetic products, since, along with cosmetic action, these products also have dermatological action. These products are specifically helpful when it comes to treating skin diseases, including photoaging, which is caused because of excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation and pollution. The prevalence of skin diseases has been rising all over the world because of a number of factors, such as excessive consumption of tobacco and alcohol.

The increasing applications of cosmetics have been possible due to technological advancements that have aided in enhancing the understanding of skin physiology. Some of the most common skin diseases are hyperpigmentation, acne, freckles, dyspigmentation, deep wrinkles, psoriasis, melasma, and atopic dermatitis. Shedding light on the incidence of such issues, the World Health Organization (WHO) says, “Skin diseases are among the most common of all human health afflictions and affect almost 900 million people in the world at any time.”

Applications of Derma cosmetics

A large number of products, including toners, creams, gels, cleansers, lotions, and serums, are now available in the market for the treatment of skin diseases. Out of all dermatological diseases, acne is one of the most common; it is caused by the blockage of the hair follicles by dirt, dead skin cells, and sebum. A majority of the population across the globe is affected by acne that eventually results in scarring. As per the American Academy of Dermatology, about 85% of Americans are affected by acne during some phase in their lives. The demand for derma cosmetics has been considerably high for treating acne in the past, and the situation is expected to be the same in the coming years. 

Other than skin problems, derma cosmetics are also used for hair-related problems, such as hair fall, dandruff, and the damage caused by excessive exposure to pollution and ultraviolet radiation. Shampoos and conditioners are some of the most common derma cosmetics utilized by people all over the world.

Where Can these Products be Procured from?

Different types of derma cosmetics are available at pharmacies & retail stores and online platforms. The sale of these products via pharmacies & retail stores has been higher up till now, as a wide range of over-the-counter products is available in such stores. This being said, the procurement of derma cosmetics is also projected to rise from online platforms in the years to come, which can be ascribed to the rising trend of online shopping all over the world. Derma cosmetics are majorly used at homes, clinics, medical spas, and salons, and hospitals. Clinical, medical spas and salons make the most use of these products, as a number of skin diseases are treated at these facilities.

Asia-Pacific (APAC) To Have Most Flawless Skin in Future?

The demand for derma cosmetics has been increasing rapidly in Asia-Pacific (APAC), which can be ascribed to the changing lifestyle patterns, improving the economic condition of various countries, rising awareness regarding derma cosmetics, growing personal spending, and a strong presence of major companies operating in the domain. Moreover, the incidence of skin diseases is rising rapidly in APAC, which is why people are increasingly spending money on skin treatments.
