I have a very smooth and actually beautiful skin. Thanks to my genes. However, I have been fighting with pigmentation for quite a while. Even though my friends told me, they would not see the spots, they were a big deal to me. And if you look closely at my picture, you will easily see the dark spots.
Pigmentation, dark spots or uneven skin are problems many women face. In this post I am sharing my first pigmentation experiences with you and I will be very honest.
There are lots of different ways how to treat the skin pigmentation
You can start with the natural treatment – like using lemon, cucumber, orange peel etc. You can find lots of advise on this on the internet. I selected this link for you here: How to get rid of hyperpigmentation
For some this might work just fine. But my spots were advanced and I could hardly get rid of them with this method.
There are lots of creams fighting pigmentation available on the beauty market. If you want to be sure you are getting a good one, you can either go to the pharmacy or ask your beauty doc. They usually sell high quality products with carefully selected active ingredients. The line I can recommend is Skinceuticals . I am using Skinceutical Advanced Pigment Corrector cream, which I apply every night. Just to make sure the spots are not coming back any time soon – after I did my laser treatment. Creams are a good alternative and great prevention.
After a long thinking and struggling, I decided for a laser treatment as I figured it out the cream will no longer help. I am not a high tech fan at all – but in this case – I was thrilled and so happy with the result! The first and very important step is to consult with your beauty doc. I am lucky to find a great one, who recommended me just what was best for me. The laser treatment itself only took about 15 minutes. I do admit that it was painful. I felt like having a major sunburn. The downtime is about one to two weeks, so you better do it on a Friday or take a few days off work. But the result was stunning. The pigmentation spots were almost gone! I felt happy and like a newborn!
If you decide to go for a laser treatment, make sure, you do it in the fall or winter time! As the skin is super sensitive after the treatment, being exposed to the sun would be a bad idea!
For those living in Vienna, here the beauty clinic I did my laser treatment at Yuvell Fine Aesthetics
And don´t forget: lots of sun cream! I basically never leave the house without a sun cream. This is the best prevention!
