Why Red Pigmentation Occurs?

Red pigmentation may occur due to a number of conditions which include;

  • It can be an after-effect of acne. A red scar may be left on the skin after an acne breakout has healed. This slight inflammation shows the healing of other inflammation caused by the breakout but it might stay for a long time if your immune system is weak.
  • You have had eczema
  • You suffer from a condition called rosacea
  • Red pigmentation can occur due to excessive sun exposure
  • Your skin may become red after a chemical or laser treatment.

How can Pigmentation be Treated?

There are many treatment options available to treat red pigmentation on the skin. A dermatologist can help you in choosing the most suitable treatment for you.

Topical Treatments

Many dermatologists prescribe topical creams that contain hydroquinone, retinoid, azelaic acid or kojic acid. However, topical creams or ointments are only effective for superficial pigmentation because they can’t affect the deeper layers of skin.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is an effective option to treat a number of skin issues including pigmentation. The majority of the dermatologists and laser practitioners prefer fractional CO2 lasers for skin resurfacing. These lasers penetrate into the skin in a fractionated manner to remove the damaged layer of skin tissues and to promote increased collagen production which helps the skin in healing quickly.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can be used to treat red pigmentation on the skin as chemical peels are considered very effective for removing acne scars and fighting bacteria that cause acne formation. The process involves an application of a chemical solution that is acidic in nature to the skin. The solution will cause the upper layer of skin tissues that are most affected to slough off without causing damage to healthy skin layers.

Chemical peels or laser treatments can cause permanent redness or other damage only if the procedure is performed by an incompetent or inexperienced person. Before you go for treating pigmentation, it is important that you are well-informed about the dermatologist and the treatment.
