Each is caused by a slightly different reason and could lead to different problems if left untreated.

This is something that is dependent on the severity of the pigmentation – if the pigmentation is recent and mild, with proper treatment, you should be able to get rid of almost all of it. However, if the pigmentation is really deep and has remained over a long period of time, it could be permanent.

While skin pigmentation treatment can be done by dermatologists, there are some clinics that will provide you the services of a qualified doctor.

If you really want to protect your skin against pigmentation, there are some lifestyle changes that you can make such as ensuring that you protect your skin, every time you step out in the sun. If you do have to go out, make sure that you apply a good quality sunscreen or wear appropriate clothing.

Staying hydrated is essential to overall good health – when you drink plenty of water, the body is able to flush out the toxins from the body. Proper hydration is also able to keep the skin nourished, which in turn can keep your skin healthy. Studies have shown that drinking water can help avoid and mildly reduce pigmentation.

Vitamin C has incredible antioxidant properties and if you include in your regular routine, you can see a difference in your hyperpigmentation. You can include it in your diet by consuming fruits and vegetable that are rich in vitamin C or you could use vitamin C serums directly on the spots of pigmentation.

In most cases, the pigmentation can be reversed, however, if the pigmentation is very deep and has been around for a long time, then there is a chance that the pigmentation becomes permanent.
