With discolored faces as much as 90 percent of people over 50 will. However, more often They fall before. The reasons are various – sometimes guilty of solarium tanning in the sun combined with the retinoid treatment of acne, hormonal contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy, but do not use sunscreen – this diversity that makes the discoloration fights with them in various ways. Who that will be appropriate? – we ask Dr. Marek Wasiluk, founder of the Warsaw Center of Modern Medicine Triclinium.

Doctor, how they arise staining?
Discoloration is the result of the body’s self-defense against solar radiation. They result from local and prolonged accumulation of excess dye in the skin. Not the sun itself, however, affect their formation (except for hyperpigmentation and age freckles). Only a combination of UV light with other stimuli, such as hormones, drugs or injury contributes to the formation of unsightly stains. Unfortunately, the discoloration is very difficult to correct, but sometimes there are also those that are relatively easy to remove. In most cases, however, it is difficult, especially in women. In such situations, it is important the selection of appropriate methods of stain removal. Because of their heterogeneity, they should be reduced by various methods.
What could be the consequences of the wrong choice of treatment?
The consequences can be very serious because in this way you can significantly worsen the condition of the skin. If someone decides to remove the stain type melasma using the methods dedicated piegom – the result of such action may be deplorable.
What it is therefore necessary to remove blemishes effectively and safely?
Discoloration is an extremely complicated process. The variety of types makes it to effectively treat them first of all to have a wide knowledge about them. You need to thoroughly know the mechanisms of their formation. It is also extremely important to have a diverse and complementary range of treatments. Only a combination of knowledge about the methods of stain removal with good facilities for the treatment allows the selection of therapy in such a way that it is adapted to the needs of the patient. It is also extremely important professional diagnosis, without which we will be forced to act by trial and error. The effects of this can be very disadvantageous because in this way we can contribute to deepening problems of discoloration.
And what are the types of discoloration at all?
There are, among others, freckles, pigmentation birth, age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation trauma, for example. burns. Types of discoloration is very much, and the mechanism of their formation is almost always extremely complicated.
Or discoloration occur in men and women differ?
In the case of men, they are most often the nature of post-traumatic, congenital or senile. Women on the other hand is of great importance due to hormonal related to pregnancy, contraception or endogenous hormones. Vascular problems also play an important role in the origin of pigmentation disorders, which unfortunately makes it difficult to remove. Another factor is the failure of aging skin.
Since the differentiation of these changes is so big, how to remove them?
In fact, during the surgery never removed dye hundred percent. Our aim is rather normalization and equalization skin color. To effect was satisfactory, you need to do it in stages, not too aggressive, not to cause the opposite effect – to stimulate the production of melanin even more, or to remove the large amount of what its effects will be discoloration. That is why this procedure is so complex and multi-stage.
On the market there are obviously a lot of specifics to pet stain removal, but in any case they will be effective. In tough skin lesions domestic therapy will be completely fruitless. With methods cabinet stands out while the two types of treatments (plus the novelty of which will mention in a moment), namely, chemical peels and laser therapy.
Unfortunately, in the case of severe discoloration not expect satisfactory results after chemical peeling. Actually, there are situations in which they can harm the patient. Removal of the major changes chemical peeling can cause a defense reaction of the organism, which, after several weeks can result in even greater discoloration. If we use too aggressive surgery scrubs, can thus lead to the creation of further discoloration or scarring.
In my opinion the best method of treatment for hyperpigmentation is the laser, which also copes well with more difficult cases. The advantage of lasers is their selective effect. As a result, they are able to act effectively on the deep layers of the skin and it is precisely in this place where there was an accumulation of melanin. Other skin structure remain intact then. The difficulty in this case, however, is that there is no one universal laser. Unfortunately, so you’ll need to use equipment intended only for stain removal. Very often it turns out to be necessary combination of several types of lasers. My favorite is sure to be laser-copper bromide and good quality Q-switched laser, which had to cope with difficult discoloration.
Laser therapy is in general a very interesting problem, availability of several types of devices which allow the use of various parameters, patterns and frequency, makes the result is a really complex combination possibilities. Unfortunately, this may be difficult in their application. Precisely for this reason, to achieve good results it is necessary to very good knowledge of these devices.
As I said, the market is also present a novelty – pulsed radiofrequency microneedle. This is another tool affecting the discoloration, but actually prevent them from occurring. The purpose of this equipment is precise to stimulate skin regeneration. This is achieved by making the sealing connection between the dermis and the epidermis. This increases the likelihood that we will not have to fight the recurrence of discoloration. Such activities also improve the quality of skin vasculature, which positively affects its condition.
As long as you are interested in the problem spots?
At the professional level, I deal with them now for about six years. From that moment all the time I earn in the range of new knowledge and continually altering the method of treatment, which significantly improves their effectiveness. Only such an analytical approach can effectively help all patients from woman for women.
