Many of the fair sex,which are too carried away with epilators and wax, are familiar with the problem of skin pigmentation of the feet not by hearsay. Unfortunately, the brown islets, no matter how you like, do not pass by themselves. It is necessary to resort to the services of cosmetologists, to constantly use special bleaching creams. Plus, the girls in the future will need to look for another way to get rid of the vegetation on the body. Otherwise they will never again be able to seduce a guy with beautiful, long and slender legs.
When do pigmentation spots appear?
For the appearance of chocolate-brown isletsresponsibility of melanin, or more precisely - its excess or shortage. If, for some reason, the production of this very pigment in melanocyte cells is disturbed, dark or light spots appear on different parts of the skin. This pathology is called hyperpigmentation in medical circles. And every year, girls are increasingly turning to hospitals with similar problems. But why does the pigmentation of the skin occur? In the case of regular or abnormal use of the epilator, individual hairs sometimes just begin to grow into the lower layers of the epidermis. And an increased tendency to keratinization is the cause of additional troubles. So, for example, follicles can begin to rot strongly. In the future, in their place, inflammation foci are formed. Lovers of hair removal make attempts to get ingrown hair with tweezers or needles, which entails strengthening the already existing problem. And suppuration turns into a local abscess. But this is not the only reason why skin pigmentation occurs.
Diagnosis of age spots
To begin with, it should be understood that not every spot,which could appear on your lovely legs - pigmented. Any education on the skin deserves your close attention and, if necessary, timely treatment. Therefore, if you suddenly found on the body of any marks that do not pass for a long time, please contact the dermatologist immediately. Of course, do not panic. After all, not all stains on the legs are potentially dangerous. For example, there is often a banal irritation after epilation. Do not worry, skin pigmentation will disappear on the third or fourth day. Formations on the legs may occur after walking in tight shoes or in kapron tights. If on the given site of a body there are birthmarks which do not change the color and the size, are not scratched, on them it is possible to not pay attention. But this only applies to cases where the pigmentation of the skin does not manifest itself in any way. As soon as any changes begin to occur, you should immediately see a doctor. By the way, even trauma to the skin can easily cause active hyperpigmentation. And then you have to say goodbye to short skirts and tempting shorts. After all, "leopard legs" is not quite what I would like to present to beautiful ladies for public review. It may be that incomprehensible rashes on the legs appeared immediately after the application of a new cosmetic product, for example, a cream for epilation or makeup for the shower. Such allergic reactions usually pass without a trace and almost instantly. Once you understand the cause of the allergy, immediately stop using such products. But if the pigmentation does not disappear, then you have to go to the hospital.
