Laser Toning in Bangalore

Everyone desires bright, even-toned skin with a glowing complexion. But, the most common problem that most Indians face is uneven skin tone and pigmentation. These are due to a combination of factors, including excessive sun exposure, constitutional pigmentation, wrong skin routine, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and melasma. To achieve even-toned skin, our expert dermatologists at Dr. Dixit Cosmetic Dermatology Clinic provide the best laser toning in Bangalore, using advanced Q-switched Yag Lasers. First, let’s learn the basics: understanding the basic reasons why we get pigmentation and how to address it.

What causes Pigmentation and Uneven Skin Tone?

Indian skin tends to tan or pigment easily, and this is due to our skin type, where the melanocytes are conditioned to increase the production of melanin with sun exposure or any injury or irritation to the epidermis. This means even the wrong skin care, which is drying out the epidermis, could cause the skin to darken. 

Commonly, using scrubs, which are recommended to brighten the skin, could actually darken the skin. 

Using too many actives like Vit C, retinol, AHA or BHA without using a good moisturiser to repair the skin barrier could also cause pigmentation. 

We also know that skin conditions like acne and eczema heal with pigmentation in the Indian skin type.

Lifestyle factors like smoking also worsen tan and pigmentation. Lack of sleep and good nutrition may contribute to the pigmentation as well. 

Sudden and excessive weight gain and hormonal problems such as Polycystic ovarian syndrome can also show up as pigmentation on the skin. 

To determine the actual causes for having an effective it is always important to start your pigmentation treatment with a consultation with a dermatologist. Determining the cause is the first step for offering effective treatment. To get the best laser skin toning in Bangalore, one should book a consultation with the experts at our advanced skin facility. 

What Diet Should You Follow for Pigmentation?

The experts at our clinic also suggest some important dietary tips to overcome pigmentation. A diet rich in brightly colored fruits and vegetables helps reduce the worsening of tan and pigmentations. These fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants, beta carotene, vitamin C and lycopene, which fight the free radicals that cause and worsen pigmentation.   

Should you Change your Basic Skin Care when you start Laser Treatment for Pigmentation?

The most important part of treating pigmentation is getting the skincare right. The barrier repair function of the epidermis has to remain intact to get the full benefits of the laser treatment. If the skin barrier is disrupted, the pigmentation starts to worsen again. Thus, to offer the best results of the advanced laser toning treatment in Bangalore, our experts suggests following a skincare routine. To do so, consider the following:

  • One should always choose a soap-free cleanser, a good moisturiser with ceramides and a physical sunscreen. Look for the labels hypoallergenic and fragrance-free, as fragrances can also trigger pigmentation.
  • Always use actives only under the guidance of the treating dermatologist. Actives such as Vitamin C, retinol serums, AHA and BHA serums are freely used, these may also contribute to the worsening of pigment if used inappropriately.

What is the Laser Toning Treatment? Is it Safe?

Laser toning is a medical treatment that uses fractional Q switched Nd YAG laser to lighten and even the skin tone. This laser system is one of the most researched lasers. This laser type was evolved to target pigmentation in all skin types and is safe from the skin of colour.

How Does the Laser Toning Work?

The presence of melanin determines the colour of the skin, the brown pigment made by the melanocytes in the upper layer of the skin. The melanocytes package the melanin and transfer it to the other epidermal cells. In skin conditions like melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, the melanocytes have hyperactivity. In some conditions, the melanin can even be dropped into the deeper dermal layer of the skin.

Laser toning targets the melanin in the skin, and reduces the size and quantity of the melanin. It also reduces the activity of the melanocytes themselves. The melanin, targeted by the laser, is broken down and removed by the skin over the next few days to weeks. Over a few sessions, the pigment becomes much reduced, and the skin appears clearer.

The Fractional Q yag laser system, those used by our experts to provide the best laser toning in Bangalore, is a non-ablative laser. That means there is no damage to the epidermal skin layer, and the skin barrier is intact. This means the laser is safe for all skin types as well as has no downtime.
