Skin pigmentation refers to how much melanin the body generates determining the colour of skin. Skin pigmentation can be triggered by various factors like genetics, sun exposure, hormonal changes, trauma to the skin and certain medications.

The various treatment options are:


Chemical peeling is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. In this treatment a chemical solution is applied to the skin which causes the skin to get rid of undesirable changes that may have taken place, like pimples, pigmentation, wrinkles etc on the face or any part of the body. Chemical peels are also effective in treating plane warts, fungal nails, and dandruff.



The Dermaroller is a hand-held device with a cylindrical roller equipped with medical grade solid steel or titanium microneedles. The device is used in a multi-directional fashion (vertically, horizontally, and diagonally) directly over the skin. Microneedling leads to the release of growth factors which stimulate the formation of new collagen (natural collagen) and elastin . In addition, new capillaries are also formed. Dermaroller treatment is done for treating Acne Scars, Wrinkles, Pigmentation and Hair loss. This technique is very effective in treating under eye dark circles when combined with PRP.


It is a micro needling device which penetrates the deeper layers of the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response. The skin is oxygenated, lymphatic drainage activated, melanin production regulated, and collagen and elastin production stimulated resulting in smoother, even toned skin. The micro channels created by the derma pen can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients deeper in to the skin. Acne and scarring, pigmentation, enlarged pores, ageing and sun damaged skin, stretch marks and fine lines and wrinkles can be treated with the dermapen.


It is also called as collagen induction therapy. It uses fine needles with radiofrequency current to create controlled injuries. This triggers new regenerated cells to form, due to the skins healing response. There is boosting of collagen and elastin production which helps to smooth out the appearance of the skin. This is used to treat scars and acne scars, pigmentation, hair loss, sun damaged skin, and skin laxity. Sylfirm X is the world’s first pulsed wave and continuous wave radiofrequency microneedling system. It helps in treating melasma, redness, hyperpigmentation, acne, acne scars, skin laxity and open pores, promotes scalp circulation, reduces stretch marks and minimizes wrinkles.


Light therapy is also called Photobiomodulation or Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT). It is a non -invasive light source treatment that emits no sound, heat, or vibration. It reduces the inflammation, promotes tissue regeneration, and prevents tissue damage. Blue light therapy helps to kill acne causing bacteria and also prevent future outbreaks. Red light therapy helps with fine lines, wrinkles, mild scars and hair growth. Green light therapy is used to treat hyperpigmentation and age spots.


It is a minimally invasive resurfacing procedure used to treat uneven skin tone/texture, photoaging, striae, melasma, and scars including acne scars. It helps to exfoliate the skin giving a refreshed appearance.
