3 Causes of Pigmentation and How to Solve Them
February 25, 2019 Rhonda Allison/Skin Inc.
The skin is one of the body’s most dynamic organs with several unique characteristics––chief among them, pigmentation. The skin’s melanin determines the color and protects against UV damage.
Many individuals battle some form of a pigmentation and no skin is immune to this regardless of age, race or gender. This brings many challenges when trying to solve and determine a solution. When a pigmentation issue occurs, how do you help restore the skin to a healthy, bright and glowing complexion?
Identify the Disorder Type
Like many functions within the skin, the process of creating pigment (melanogenesis) is extremely complex. When damaged, the melanin production process changes, either overproducing or slowing. This is when issues occur, resulting in one of three types of pigment changes:
Solving the Pigmentation Issue
There are four critical factors to eliminating, reducing and managing pigmentation issues. These include:
For deeper exfoliation, TCA with sake and potent melanin suppressors will tone and refine the skin for a luminous, healthy complexion. Flower acids and mandelic acid will also brighten and stimulate cellular turnover. Follow with a vitamin A and peptide peel formula to rejuvenate damaged cells.
For home care, look to botanical brighteners, retinaldehyde, plant stem cells, epidermal growth factor and peptides. This combination will address the four key areas: exfoliation, melanin suppression, skin brightening and cellular repair and protection.
Permanent Cosmetics for the Auburn, California Area
Permanent cosmetics save you time and money. No more need to mess with make-up every day. For women who have experienced damage to their skin, permanent cosmetics can restore your original look.
POWDER SHADING OR OMBRE BROWS
Powder or ombre brows are meant to create a powder look much like topical powder make up. They are not for creating hair strokes at all and are best for clients that want a more solid looking brow or have brows but want a base color. Solid brows are similar but usually have more density and often times last longer than just microblading.
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that involves a hand tool with tiny needles. It makes shallow cuts on the skin and deposits pigment, creating hair-like strokes along the eyebrow giving the appearance of hair on your eyebrows.
Collagen Induction Therapy is the most specific and advanced form of skin micro needling. The process harnesses the body's own natural power to heal, restore and rejuvenate; promoting increased production of collagen and elastin for improved overall skin tone and texture. CIT is a safe and less invasive alternative to laser treatments. CIT is used to treat various facial and body skin issues such as wrinkles, sagging skin, stretch marks, acne scars, breast surgery, burns, sun damage (hyperpigmentation), hyper-pigmented dark spots, tucks, facelift scars and more. Skin will often appear thicker, more plump.
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure. It involves a hand tool with tiny needles. It makes shallow cuts on the skin. It deposits pigment, Creating hair-like strokes along the eyebrow giving the appearance of hair on your eyebrows. This semi permanent procedure is for light eyebrows. And for those who dont desire to spend much time on styling their eyebrows
One word....DON'T. Microneedling at home with one of these 'rollers' is absolutely not recommended in the industry no matter how careful you are or how much you spend on a device. You have no control with depth of penetration and proper sterilization techniques. The aftercare needs to be followed to avoid infection and /or hyperpigmentation. Please only have a licensed professional such as a permanent cosmetic technician (PMU), tattoo artist, nurse or dermatologist with special training and proper certification perform this advanced treatment also called collagen induction therapy or skin needling for you.
Simple stated, stay with a small molecule size for best penetration. Microderms, commonly known as Microdermabrasion can often help to slough off old dead skin we need to shed and ultimately provide a better canvas for those high performing ingredients to penetrate like peptides and serums.
Here is some great info from futurederm:
When you apply a serum, lotion, or cream, it encounters the uppermost layer of skin, which is called the stratum corneum. Depending on the size and chemical properties of the ingredients, three different things can happen:
1: Small and Permeable: Absorbed by Skin Cells
If the ingredients in your product are small and permeable, they will be uptaken by skin cells and processed. After a period of time, the ingredients will be secreted out of the skin cells and will enter the circulation. This includes ingredients like L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C), tocopherol acetate (vitamin E), and retinol (vitamin A).
2: Large and Non-Permeable: Goes Between Skin Cells
If the ingredients in your product are too large to be uptaken by skin cells, they will move between the skin cells for a period of time. After a while, these ingredients will also enter the circulation and be excreted from the body. These include peptide ingredients like Matrixyl 3000, which have been shown to work at a space between skin cells known as the dermo-epidermal junction (DEJ)
3: Large and Non-Permeable: Is Temporarily Absorbed by Glands
If the ingredients in your product are not absorbed by your skin cells, they may also be temporarily absorbed by some glands in a process known as ”appendageal absorption”. In this process, there are “reservoir effects” in which substances may be stored within the glands for absorption over time before being released into the bloodstream. This includes ingredients like aluminum, which is the reason for some of the controversy surrounding aluminum-containing deodorants.

Microderm or commonly called Microdermabrasion is a mechanical form of exfoliation, it uses vacuum suction and a diamond tip head with a filter. I often tell my clients it feels like a cat's tongue along the skin. Often you will experience better results with product penetration after a microderm session
Here is an article with lots of helpful information:
Microdermabrasion is a very effective skin treatment that can help to renew your skin and give it a more youthful appearance, if you opt for multiple treatment sessions then the benefits for your skin can be incredible.
Microdermabrasion is a form of deep exfoliation utilizing vacuum suction and a diamond tip head (don't worry it is not painful, think of how a cat's tongue feels) It assists in removing dead skin cells and improve the texture and smoothness of the skin, as well as promoting the production of fresh collagen and cells.
As well as simply creating a youthful glow, it can be used to treat a wide range of skin problems including fine lines, sun damage, flaking skin, enlarged pores, acne scars, pigmentation, dry skin, age spots, stretch marks and more. Microderm assists in helping products to be better absorbed such as serums and moisturizers.
LONG-TERM BENEFITS OF MULTIPLE MICRODERMABRASION TREATMENTS
Although even a single treatment of microdermabrasion will leave you noticing the difference immediately, for the best results you should consider multiple treatments. The benefits of ongoing treatment include:
Sometimes we need more than what we can get from a fruit enzyme...this is when acid peels are very useful. There are several types of acid peels, at Aesthetics By Chezza we use Glycolic, Lactic, Mandelic and Salicylic.
Chemical exfoliants rely on the power of the ingredient to soften, lift and delaminate the skin. There are many different types of acid peels and enzymes that fall into this category.
I love using enzymes in my enzyme facials, fruit enzymes such as pomegranate are great for oily or acne prone skin. Lemon enzymes are wonderful for hyper-pigmentation/sun damaged skin and one of my personal favorites is Papaya-Coconut.
Enzymes utilized in skin care primarily include those that digest protein in skin, such as keratin, which is present in high concentrations in the upper layer of the epidermis. Papain from papaya and bromelain from pineapple are two of the most common enzymes. Enzymes are generally very safe, because they have a limited reactivity with skin due to the fact that they can only digest the keratin protein they come into direct contact with. The key to success with enzyme systems is keeping the enzyme active before it is applied to the skin. For instance, a single-enzyme product that contains water and enzyme has a very short shelf life, because the enzyme can digest itself. Also, it should be noted that many enzyme products are formulated together with acids, which can make the exfoliation more aggressive. These treatments should be categorized as chemical acid peels rather than an enzyme. Very often, these additives are not disclosed; therefore, skin care professionals should be sure to test different enzyme products and choose the appropriate strength for a specific client.
