Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

Wounds or inflammations, such as acne, can leave red to brown discolourations. This is called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation usually occurs in people who have suffered from acne. When superficial, these pigment spots are light to dark brown. A post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can also have a deeper component, and then the colour tends towards grey-brown.

Frequently Asked Questions

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

Huidzorg West offers various innovative treatments for the treatment of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

During the initial consultation, we will discuss your symptoms and assess your skin. Then we come up with a tailor-made treatment plan. In addition, Huidzorg West has a wide range of effective treatment methods for the treatment of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Depending on the skin type, the skin therapist recommends the most effective treatment method.

The SPOT OUT treatment is a treatment to remove hyperpigmentation, such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This treatment eliminates and reduces dark spots by inhibiting the melanogenesis process.

Huidzorg West effectively treats with a fractional laser. This method is mainly used to improve the structure of the skin. In addition to improving skin structure, it also improves any red and dark skin discolourations, such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Microdermabrasion is a treatment method that mechanically removes the upper layers of the skin. Abrasion literally means “grinding off” or “sanding down”. This replaces old skin cells with new ones.It also stimulates the production of new connective tissue cells, making the skin look fresher and smoother.Microdermabrasion treatment is often used in combination with chemical peeling or fractional laser for the best possible treatment result.

A “chemical” peel is an effective and simple way to improve the condition of the skin and give it a fresh appearance. It can be used well for superficial scarring, such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

After wounds or inflammations, such as acne or ingrown hairs, red to brown discolouration may remain. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is often visible in:

In addition to the treatments in the practice, the use of proper skin care is of great importance. The NeoretinToskani and Neostrata product ranges include products that provide inhibition in the enzyme tyrosinase, high percentages of retinol and antioxidants to improve hyperpigmentations such as sun damage and uneven skin tone and regulate the activity of pigment cells.

It is also important to use a sunscreen with a broad-spectrum filter. At Huidzorg West, for example, we recommend the products of Heliocare. These mineral products have both UVA and UVB filters, as well as visible light and infrared light filters. These filters are of great importance for the prevention of new pigmentation spots.
