Dark spots on the skin—also known as hyperpigmentation, age spots, solar lentigines, or liver spots, depending on their cause—can happen at any time, but most often appear in middle age.

Most often, they are a consequence of past sun exposure or artificial UV light used in tanning beds. The spots are also associated with certain skin conditions and can occur as a side effect of some medications as well.

Dark spots are generally harmless, but there are times when they could be cancerous. They can be lightened or removed if you so desire.

Discolored skin patches are irregular areas where there are changes in skin color. They are a common problem with a wide array of potential causes.

Some of the more common causes for changes in skin color are illness, injury, and inflammatory problems.

Discolored skin patches also commonly develop in a certain part of the body due to a difference in melanin levels.

Melanin is the substance that provides color to the skin and protects it from the sun. When there is an overproduction of melanin in a given area, it can result in skin discoloration there.

Symptoms:

These dark patches and dark spots can range from light to dark brown or black in color, are flat, and generally oval-shape.

Dark spots and patches can develop anywhere, but they are most likely to appear on the parts of the body that receive the most sun exposure, including:

  • The face
  • The backs of the hands
  • The shoulders
  • The arms
  • The back

While usually small and several spots can group together and form larger areas of darkened skin.

Causes and Risk Factors:

Dark patches are the result of the overproduction or collection of melanin i.e. skin pigment and/or free radical damage.

Hyperpigmentation often starts to take hold during middle age when the skin starts to show the consequences of sun exposure, Especially if sunscreen and other sun-protective measures were not used.
Those with light hair or skin, and who have had severe and/or many sunburns are at particular risk.
The following other causes, however, may be at play—either alone or in conjunction with one another or UV exposure.

Skin Conditions

There are several different skin conditions or imperfections and diseases that can cause dark spots and areas, though these are not the same as age-related dark spots. They include:

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation: Skin discoloration following an inflammatory lesion, like acne, pimple etc.

Melasma: Also known as pregnancy mask.

Linea nigra: A dark, vertical line that appears lengthwise down the middle of the abdomen during pregnancy.

Chloasma: Darkened skin due to hormonal changes.

Riehl’s Melanosis: A form of contact dermatitis that’s believed to be caused by sun exposure.

Poikiloderma of Civatte: A benign condition that turns parts of the neck a reddish-brown color.

Erythromelanosis follicularis: A condition that’s characterized by reddish-brown pigmentation of the face and neck.

Diagnosis:

Your primary care doctor or a dermatologist in Delhi can usually diagnose dark spots upon physical examination. Unless a spot looks suspicious, A biopsy or further testing is not necessary.

Dark patches Treatment in Delhi:

Dark spots do not hurt and they have the same texture as the rest of your skin. Most of the time they don’t pose any health risks,

So you do not have to get rid of them, although many people choose for cosmetic purposes.

Dark spots can be diminished or removed completely with prescription drugs, medical procedures, and at-home treatments.

Topical Treatments:

Prescription bleaching creams gradually diminish the appearance of dark spots, usually over a period of several months.

Hydroquinone is the active ingredient in prescription bleaching creams. It works by inhibiting production of melanin and should only be used on a short-term basis, as its safety has been questioned.

Some research has indicated that it may be a carcinogen at higher concentrations. For this reason.

The FDA has limited the concentration of hydroquinone to 3 percent to 4 percent in prescription products, and 2 percent in over-the-counter products.

There are also a number of other over-the-counter products that treat dark patches. They might diminish the appearance of spots, but may not completely eliminate them.

Look for creams that contain retinoids alpha hydroxy acid, glycolic acid, deoxyarbutin, and kojic acid.

Side effects, including redness, swelling, and skin irritation can occur with any topical medication.

Because these products contain abrasive ingredients that also make the skin extremely sensitive to UV exposure, it is very important to wear sunscreen with SPF consistently throughout the treatment.

Cosmetic Procedures:

Medical procedures are used to treat dark spots on any part of the body and are often used in conjunction with topical treatments, though some may not be appropriate for people with sensitive skin. Options include:

Laser treatment in Delhi:

This uses concentrated light energy to remove skin layer-by-layer, which burns dark spots off. Risks include bruising, swelling, redness, tightness, scarring, infection, and changes in skin texture or tone.

Laser light treatment in Delhi is a flash, similar to a camera flash. The frequency of that light is best absorbed by the dark pigmented spots in the skin.

The surrounding light skin, which is not pigmented, does not pick up that light very well, so the darkly pigmented cells absorb virtually all of the light’s energy and simply peel off after a few days.

The laser treatment itself takes approximately 30-minutes and is mildly uncomfortable. The sensation you feel is similar to a rubber band snapping on your skin.

One treatment is often enough to be effective, but some people may want to do as many as three treatments depending on the level of sun damage.

It is not uncommon for people to have brown spots on their hands, arms or face. The pigment is consistent and you usually can’t feel them because they’re flat, not raised.

These brown spots are often referred to as age spots, liver spots or sunspots. In medical terms, these brown spots are known as lentigines.

Which are basically sunspots caused by damage to the skin? Lentigines tend to make our skin look weathered, old and unsightly.

The Cost of Laser Treatment:

The cost varies depending on the areas involved and the number of treatments you need. Larger areas of skin cost more, while smaller areas won’t be as expensive.

Also, more treatments come with discounts. So your price per treatment decreases as you schedule more procedures.

Types of Laser Treatments:

Laser treatment for dark patches uses an Intense Pulse Light (IPL) laser. The laser head (about the size of a postage stamp) emits light that’s absorbed by dark skin cells. The darker the skin cell, the more energy it absorbs, killing that particular cell.

Then the dead skin cells move to the top of your skin and flake off. As they flake, you just peel off the dark spots.

The surrounding skin cells aren’t harmed. Because they do not have the dark pigment, they don’t absorb the laser energy.

This treatment works great for lighter skin types. Because the laser can clearly differentiate between the normal skin and the dark spot, it is highly effective.

Chemical peels can help erase dark spots as well. If you have a darker skin, you may opt for a chemical peel instead of a laser treatment because it’s safer for skin with more pigment.

Do Lasers Hurt?

IPL can be uncomfortable. It feels like a little rubber band snaps, and since it is repeatedly “snapping” around the entire area of treatment, We recommend a numbing cream. You’ll apply it to the treatment area to make your procedure much more comfortable.

What to Expect After Laser Treatment:

Redness and swelling are normal the day after your laser treatment. Then, within 4-7 days, these spots will begin to flake off like coffee grounds.

Whether you choose IPL or a chemical peel, dark spots will come back in the sun. Be meticulous about wearing sunscreen to prevent them from returning, especially in the weeks following your treatment.

Even if you are just driving on a sunny day, apply sunscreen. Your windshield doesn’t stop the sunlight from affecting your skin.

If you are not careful about sun exposure, the effort you made to remove the spots will be in vain. They’ll only stay away with diligent sun protection.

Are Dark Spots Cancerous?

If you have dark spots, that doesn’t mean you have cancer. However, because these areas of the skin are damaged, you could develop skin cancer.

It’s important to get checked, if you notice a new brown spot that is changing and has a different color and shape from other moles on your body.

To the untrained eye, most moles and dark spots look similar, so we encourage everyone to get checked the first time they notice dark spots. It can take a long time to realize something is wrong, and early detection is critical.

Also, you shouldn’t try to self-diagnose based on photos and information you found online. It’s important to be examined by a trained dermatologist.

The Consequences of Leaving Dark Spots Untreated:

When left untreated, dark pigmented spots will continue to accumulate on your skin over time. The more you allow brown spots to accumulate, the more difficult they are to treat.

If you get brown spots cleaned off your skin at this time of year, they’ll typically stay away during the winter months because you spend less time in the sun.

Then you can take steps during the spring and summer months to prevent these spots from appearing.

Ongoing Treatment to Prevent Dark Spots:

In addition to the laser removal process, brown spots on the skin typically require ongoing, daily treatment because the damage is generally caused by daily sun exposure.

Obviously, it is important to use sunscreen. We also use retinol to remove brown spots from the skin, as well as pigment blockers to prevent the more dark pigment from appearing. This is all part of a daily regimen that can help you maintain a clear complexion.

Chemical peels In Delhi: 

These contain salicylic acid and glycolic acid for peeling, which remove the top layer of the skin, revealing healthier and more evenly toned skin beneath. Skin irritation is a possible risk.

Exfoliating treatments like chemical peels remove the upper layers of dead skin helping to reduce the dull appearance of the skin so that it reflects light better and appears to glow, explains expert.

Over time, these treatments can stimulate collagen production, enhance cellular turnover, and reduce the appearance of dark spots, but beware a chemical peel that is too powerful, which can burn the skin.

Common active ingredients in pro-grade peels include glycolic, mandelic, salicylic, and lactic acids, along with trichloroacetic acid.

Dermatologist in Delhi adds that while at-home peels are available, they are more likely to slough off dead skin rather than lighten dark spots.

Microdermabrasion in Delhi:

There are two types of microdermabrasion in Delhi, both of which physically erode surface skin cells. With crystal microdermabrasion, a machine emits fine crystals through a wand that rub against the skin and scrape away cells.

For diamond-tipped microdermabrasion, the abrasive end of the wand is used for this purpose instead. The skin may be pink for a while afterward, but these techniques are considered low-risk.

Microdermabrasion is another well-known exfoliating treatment for hyperpigmentation that uses tiny particles to the sand away dead skin.

Skin specialist in Delhi describes microdermabrasion as a “non-chemical procedure that’s non-ablative, which means it does not destroy skin tissue, and therefore does not require significant recovery time.

Microdermabrasion is best for milder hyperpigmentation conditions since the results are modest in terms of improving the appearance of skin discoloration.

Dermaroller Treatment in Delhi:

Consider this a treatment, not for the faint of heart. Performed using a medical-grade, stainless steel roller covered with hundreds of tiny spikes.

The tool creates a series of micro-injuries in an effort to rebuild the skin collagen production along with elasticity.

While many at-home versions exist, Doft recommends having your physician control the level of penetration thinks half a millimeter to 2.5 millimeters.

For best results, micro needling is often combined with topical treatments. “Once the skin barrier is opened, it is also possible to infuse ingredients known to lighten the skin like vitamin C.

Dermatologists might also use platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a special wound healing serum, or a hyaluronic acid-vitamin C compound to help with hyperpigmentation, Especially in darker skin tones.

She does note there is a potential risk of scarring from micro needling services if they are performed too aggressively.

Darker-skinned patients may also find that they become more pigmented, but you will see a brighter complexion by the next week after treatment.”

Cryosurgery: 

Cryosurgery fades age spots by freezing them with a liquid nitrogen solution, causing the darkened skin to peel away from the body. Risks include permanent whitening of treated areas.

Prevention:

As you age, dark spots may be inevitable. However, the bests way to help avoid getting dark spots (or to prevent faded ones from returning) include:

Use SPF: Be diligent about wearing and reapplying sunscreen every two hours or sooner if you’ve been swimming or sweating a lot.

Cover up: When outdoors, wear a hat (broad-brimmed is best), long sleeves, and pants. SPF fabrics can offer added protection.

Avoid peak sun hours: UV exposure is usually greatest between the hours of 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.
