Here's How You Get Rid Of Dark Spots

Here's How You Get Rid Of Dark Spots

The first question that comes to mind here is, what are dark spots?

Dark spots occur when some areas of the skin form produce melanin than usual, due to being exposed under the sun for far too long. These are also called age spots, or sunspots.

Their tone can range from light to dark brown, depending on the cause and the amount of exposure. These aren’t painful and in fact, their texture is just like the skin. Generally, dark spots are common in the following areas:

  • back of the hands
  • face
  • back
  • shoulders

Dark spots can have many causes, not just sun damage, like :

1. Hormonal changes

Hormonal fluctuations can cause hyperpigmentation or melasma. It is common in women more than men. It is more prevalent in darker skin tones as their skin automatically produces melanin (responsible for the colour of our skin), as it may fluctuate with hormonal changes.

2. Medication Side Effects

Some medicines can also be responsible for this form of skin discoloration. The most common culprits are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), tetracyclines, and psychotropic drugs.

3. Inflammation

They can also be a bi-product of inflammation, which can be caused by acne, psoriasis, eczema, or any injury to the skin.

4. Wounds

Any sort of wound can leave a mark on the skin and depending on its overall impact, the skin would develop a spot that can either fade in a couple of days or something more permanent.

5. Cosmetic injuries

Allergic reaction to cosmetics can also cause dark skin. Remember to stick to hypoallergenic products.

Once these spots appear, two things can happen. They can either disappear on their own or they will deepen in pigmentation and then stay, depending on the cause. But if you want to get rid of them, you can speed up the process. Creams, home remedies and medical procedures can be employed for this.

Home remedies are generally low in impact and hence low with results, but they are mostly safe and lack side effects when not allergic, depending on your source. The one thing to keep in mind is the source. If your source isn’t verified then there may be a chance of an allergic reaction.

There are a couple of treatments that are in the market tailored specifically to the cause of hyperpigmentation.

1. Laser treatment

Generally, an intense pulse light laser is used to target melanin and break up dark spots. Kaya Insta Clarity Laser uses a Q Switched Laser for a more targeted approach to spots which keeps the surrounding skin safe.

2. Microdermabrasion

A medical professional uses a tool with abrasive surface, to remove the outer layer of the skin which leads way to new collagen growth, which helps in reducing spots.

3. Chemical Peels

A chemical peel treatment involves the application of a chemical solution in the form of cream or a mask. It is to be applied for a particular duration of time, during which it exfoliated the skin surface, and promotes the growth of new skin. Depending on the intensity of the chemical solution, this treatment destroys the top layers of the skin, promoting the growth of brand new skin.

4. Creams

The market is flooded with pigmentation targeted products but that shouldn’t get you tooexcited.
