Various Types of Pigmentation

Various Types of Pigmentation

Are you witnessing a change in your skin colour? If so, then skin pigmentation might be the culprit that is bothering you. Our skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin that is produced in the body. However, certain factors like overexposure to sun rays, hormonal fluctuations, skin inflammation and other skin conditions affect your skin, giving rise to pigmentation.

Although you may be aware of skin pigmentation, this skin concern is divided into several types. Here are some of the types that come under skin pigmentation.

Types Of Pigmentation


Individuals who have fair skin face the problem of freckles which are flat brown spots. They usually appear on the face during the month of summer and are less apparent during the winter. They are benign in nature and can be hereditary as well. The most important trigger that gives rise to freckles is the harmful UVB rays of the sun. However, freckles can be the ones to hamper your natural beauty. Which is why, it is advisable to use a sunscreen to protect your skin to avoid this type of skin pigmentation. The Kaya Sunscreen For Sensitive Skin provides effective protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays, thus preventing sunburn and skin ageing due to sun exposure. This lightweight, non-greasy formula hydrates the skin and spreads easily, leaving a matte finish. As this sunscreen is suitable for every weather, you can offer your skin a year-long protection against freckles.

Age Spots

Also known as liver spots, age spots are usually formed due to the damage caused by the sun’s harmful rays. They are small dark spots which usually show up on the face and hands but they can be found on other areas of body that are exposed to the sun. Pollutants found in the environment can also damage the skin and can cause age spots, leading to dull and dry skin. Excessive sun bathing and use of sun tan beds is another reason that can set off this type of skin pigmentation. The Kaya Intense Clarify Pigmentation Reducing Complex is a light textured fast absorbing cream that is formulated by expert dermatologists. It helps to reduce reduce dark spots and skin marks that are highly resistant. This complex includes highly potent actives like Azealia acid and Phytic acid that are proven Tyrosinase inhibitors which reduce age spots and prevent further darkening of skin.

Melasma and Chloasma

These two forms of pigmentation are caused due to sun damage or hormonal changes. They occur usually on cheeks, nose and the forehead. Melasma appears in the form of patches that darken in the month of summer due to overexposure to the sun.

While high levels of oestrogen during your menstrual cycles can lead to melasma, chloasma can occur during pregnancy or due to hormonal changes and can develop on other parts of your body as well. The Insta Clarity Laser is a solution that the dermatologists at Kaya recommend for such pigmentation. The Insta Clarity Laser uses a Q-Switched laser technology that is safe for Indian skin type, effectively removing darks spots using an invisible beam of light.  This laser is useful for treating both superficial and deeper pigmentation like uneven skin tone, patchy skin and dark spots. The Q-Switched laser used in this service targets the brown pigment that is the melanin present in your dark spots. The laser directly hits the pigmentation marks without having any impact on your surrounding skin. The pigment absorbs the laser and gets dispersed and absorbed in the body, leaving you with smooth and even toned skin. It takes around 6-8 sessions of this service to give you ideal results.
