Pigmentation Removal

Excessive skin pigmentation is a result of abnormal production and deposition of melanin by the melanocytes. Melanocytes are pigment-producing cells. The number of melanocytes present in our skin will determine our skin colour. Hyperpigmentation, or areas that are darker than the rest of the skin, result from excess melanin production and deposition. Excessive skin pigmentation can be from a number of causes including UV exposure, hormones, skin trauma, and congenital. Pigmentation can be treated with lasers and lightening creams. The mode of treatment used will be dependent on the type of pigmentation, patient preference, and patient risk tolerance. Different lasers are required for different types of skin pigmentation and skin types. UV protection/sunscreen is paramount in the treatment of pigmentation. Dr V K Srinagesh of Ojas Aesthetic Institute is Board Certified Surgeon with many years of experience in these kinds of Cosmetic Surgeries. Ojas Aesthetic Institute offers this surgery at an affordable cost providing right results.
