What causes pigment deposition? Melanin is a dark brown substance produced or absorbed in the process of life. It exists in every cell of the body, including cells on the surface of the skin. So, how to remove melanin?
1. What is the cause of pigment deposition?
1.1. Ultraviolet radiation: ultraviolet radiation in sunlight is an important reason for the formation of color spots, which is also the reason for the need for sunscreen in summer. When the skin is exposed to too much sunlight, the epidermis will produce more melanin particles, which can absorb ultraviolet rays and protect the human body from harm. This is the truth that everyone’s skin will turn black after exposure to the sun. Moreover, ultraviolet radiation will cause chloasma and deepen the color of ordinary freckles.
1.2 endocrine causes: endocrine disorders are also an important cause of color spots in women. Changes in the level of sexual hormones in the body during menstruation and pregnancy can affect the production of melanin.
1.3. Lifestyle problems: stress, partial diet, lack of sleep and other bad lifestyle habits will also increase melanin. Therefore, the metabolic rate of the skin of people with unstable sleep time is also poor, which will affect the production of melanin precipitation.
2. What is melanin deposition?
It refers to women of childbearing age with endocrine disorders. With the increase of age, their menstrual periods each month lead to long-term loss of blood and Qi; The environment and atmosphere change without reason, and the kidney is easily injured by cold and dampness due to heat, cold and rheumatism; Due to weak vitality, facial cells can not be properly nourished, resulting in the formation of melanin precipitation, leading to the formation of color spots.
3. Is it expensive to remove melanin deposition by laser?
Is the price of laser treatment of pigmentation expensive? Plastic experts say that laser freckle removal is a new non-surgical beauty technology, especially suitable for Asian skin. The price of laser treatment for pigmentation is related to many factors. There is no unified standard. The range of skin pigmentation affects the price of treatment; If the skin pigmentation is large, the treatment range will be expanded, then the treatment will take time, that is to say, multiple treatments will be required, so the price of removing skin pigmentation will naturally be high; In addition, the depth of skin pigmentation also affects the treatment price. Those with deep pigmentation need to be treated many times, so the price will be correspondingly higher.
In addition to the above personal physical conditions, beauty lovers’ choice of hospitals also affects the price of treatment. Regular hospitals have advanced and complete equipment for removing skin pigmentation. Doctors are highly skilled, and treatment can be well guaranteed. Good equipment will also have a much better effect on treating skin pigmentation, but if some small institutions are not fully equipped, there is no guarantee for treatment, so we should not covet small costs, but must choose a regular hospital.
symptoms of pigmentation
1. Endocrine diseases: due to excessive melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH) and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), such as Addison’s disease, Cushing’s disease, Nelson syndrome, ovarian tumor, malignant pheochromocytoma, and long-term treatment with ACTH. During pregnancy, when using estrogen and contraceptives containing estrogen, skin pigmentation is deepened and melanin deposition is more common.
2. Metabolic diseases: such as hemochromatosis, various types of porphyria with photosensitive dermatitis, hepatolenticular degeneration, skin amyloidosis, Gaucher disease and other melanin deposition symptoms.
3. Nutritional diseases: melanosis may have vitamin A deficiency, vitamin B12, vitamin C, folic acid, niacin deficiency, malabsorption syndrome, etc.
4. Chronic infection: such as malaria, Kala Azar and schistosomiasis.
5. Tumor: it can be seen in tumors that produce ectopic ACTH and MSH, such as lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, advanced malignant melanoma, and cachexia in advanced cancer. Melanosis is occasionally seen in Hodgkin’s disease, lymphosarcoma, and chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
6. Connective tissue diseases: it can be seen in rheumatoid arthritis, still disease, generalized scleroderma, dermatomyositis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.
how melanin is excreted from the body
1. I don’t stay up late. The time for the human body to discharge melanin is generally at night. If you often stay up late, it will affect the body’s pigment discharge function and increase melanin in the body.
2. Drink plenty of water. Water can dilute melanin in the body, accelerate the blood flow of the body, improve metabolism, and help the body expel melanin from the body.
3. Eat more foods containing vitamin C. Vitamin C has the function of anti-oxidation and whitening, and at the same time, it can dilute the melanin of the body, which is particularly good for the body.
4. Eat less food containing pigment. Most of the pigment in the human body enters the body through digestion and absorption by the stomach. If you eat food containing pigment regularly on weekdays, the pigment in the body will increase continuously.
5. Less sun. Although sunlight can kill bacteria and promote calcium absorption, the ultraviolet rays contained therein will accelerate the precipitation of melanin in the cells of the body, not be discharged out of the body with the blood, and increase the concentration of melanin in the body.
6. Do proper exercise every day. As the saying goes, life lies in exercise. Only after exercise can body cells have full vitality, so that melanin that does not belong to them can be expelled from the body.
