SCARS AND HYPERPIGMENTATION – The skin is the largest organ of the human body. It is the protective shield for other organs of the body. Being the shield, it is also the most vulnerable to external attacks and inevitable incidents. The skin bears the harshness of the sun UV rays while also maintaining a healthy temperature for the other body organs to perform optimally.
As creatures that must be physically active for several reasons, we can’t completely avoid getting exposed to the UV rays of the sun or rule out the possibility of getting injured while carrying out our daily activities. By overexposing ourselves to sunlight (which is sometimes inevitable), we risk making those body parts without protection from the sun (the face, hands, and legs) get darker. These body parts get darker because the body produces melanin as a form of protection against the harmful UV rays of the sun.
While the production of melanin in the body is a natural protective mechanism, when it is overproduced in the body, it is called hyperpigmentation. The sun is not the only factor that can trigger the body to overproduce melanin (the pigment that gives our skins, hair and eyes their colour); other conditions like the ones mentioned below are equally capable of influencing melanin production in the body.
- Scars from injury and inflammation: skin cuts, burns, bruises, dermatitis and aftermath of surgeries are all capable of evoking hyperpigmentation and making some parts of our body darker than the other parts.
- Ageing: As we age, so does our body experience physiological changes. One of the signs of ageing is the emergence of dark spots (also known as Age spots) on our skin.
- Change in hormonal level: This is particularly common among females. The female sex hormone sometimes stimulate the overproduction of melanin
- Medication: Hyperpigmentation also occurs as a side effect to some drugs usage. Antibiotics, antimalarial, anti-seizure and chemotherapy drugs are all capable of evoking the overproduction of melanin.
From the above, we can easily deduce that hyperpigmentation is a bane to the possession of blemish-free skin. Its mere appearance on our skin also hurts our self-image as an individual. To the best of our knowledge, no one likes to be addressed as the individual with many dark spots or irregular skin tone.
How can we prevent hyperpigmentation and suppress melanin growth in our body without putting our body through unnecessary risks?
Well, one of the ways to avoid the overproduction of melanin in the body system is by completing avoiding sunlight (especially from 10:00 am till 4:00 pm). If we must be exposed to the sun, we should consider applying a sun protection product and wear protective skin clothes.
In situations where hyperpigmentation is already visible on your skin, well, that shouldn’t be a reason to panic. There are established options for suppressing melanin growth, tackling dark spot caused by scars and preventing the reappearance of such spots on our body.
Below are the major methods that can be used to remove dark spots caused by hyperpigmentation or any of the causative factors:
- Cosmetic Solutions: There are skincare products produced for the sole purpose of removing these spots. The flaw of this method is that it takes longer before the effect is felt and it doesn’t necessarily suppress the overproduction of melanin in the body system. It only tries to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the growth of new ones.
- Laser Therapy: As the name suggests, laser therapy uses laser technology to remove spots from the skin. It is more precise and faster than cosmetic solutions and it is usually performed under the supervision of a dermatologist.
- Treatment with Pills: Aside from the aforementioned options, hyperpigmentation can also be treated with the use of pills. With the use of drugs containing tranexamic acids, PDRN and or glutathione in the right quantity, not only will you be eliminating the unwanted dark spots on your skin and regenerating new skin cells, but you will also be suppressing the growth of melanin in your body system.
After several years of research about the most effective way to be rid of hyperpigmentation and its attendant effect on our biological and psychological health, Nexus Pharma (a result-based innovation firm based in Seoul, Korea) has been able to discover just the right combination of elements necessary to curb the overproduction of melanin and eliminate its visibility from our skins. Aside from the fact that these drugs are made to pass through several quality assurance tests before they are distributed, these drugs are also tested and given the “OK” badge by several international regulatory agencies.
As the sole distributor of those drugs in Nigeria, we are the only firm that can give you these products at an unbeatable price. We also provide a detailed dosage after a careful examination of the severity of melanin overproduction in your system.
