The largest organ in the human body is skin. This obvious answer sometimes surprises people because they do not consider it. Skincare is something that plays a significant role in a person’s physical and mental health. Clear skin can boost confidence and can be a sign of good health. Clear skin can be achieved from natural remedies and dietary changes. But this can prove to be insufficient to solve certain skin problems. One such issue is skin pigmentation.
What is Skin Pigmentation?
Pigmentation refers to the colouring of the skin. The colour of the skin depends on a pigment called melanin. Melanin is made by the cells in the skin. Skin pigmentation disorders cause changes to the colour of skin. Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition that causes the skin to darken. It affects people of all skin types. Hyperpigmentation can affect the skin in patches or on the entire body. It is usually harmless but can sometimes be caused by an underlying medical issue. It can also be caused as a result of certain medications. For most people, it is more of a cosmetic issue than a medical one.
When the skin cells produce more melanin, spots or patches of skin can appear darker than surrounding areas. This leads to hyperpigmentation. Some forms of hyperpigmentation affect areas of skin that face sun exposure, such as the face, arms, and legs. Other types of hyperpigmentation can form after an injury or skin inflammation, such as cuts, burns, acne, or lupus. Age spots, also called liver spots are a common type of hyperpigmentation.
While skin pigmentation can sometimes be resolved using home remedies, Nd-YAG Laser treatment is something that might be suggested by the skin specialists, the dermatologists.
What is Nd-YAG Laser Treatment?
Laser treatment is used to remedy various health problems. Various kinds of lasers are used in medicine. Lasers are differentiated by the medium that produces the laser beam. Different types of lasers have specific ranges of usage depending on their wavelength and penetration. The Nd-YAG laser used the Nd-YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet) crystal as the laser medium. Lasers work by emitting a wavelength of high energy light. When this light is focused on a certain skin condition, it will create heat and destroy diseased cells. The Nd-YAG laser can treat skin conditions such as vascular lesions, hyperpigmentation, and hair removal. It can be used to treat nail disorders such as Onychomycosis, which is caused by fungal pathogens. It can also be used to improve wrinkles in photo-aged skin and for tattoo removal.
Getting a tattoo is often considered a pivotal and irreversible decision. But it is possible to remove tattoos with Nd-YAG laser treatment. The colour of the tattoo and the depth of the pigment used in the tattoo influence the duration and the outcome of the laser treatment. The laser treatment involves the selective destruction of the ink molecules. The ink molecules are then absorbed by macrophages and eliminated.
