Pigmentation

The causes of pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is caused by the overproduction of Melanin in your skin. Melanin is the pigment produced by melanocytes that protect your skin from damaging UV rays or hormonal influences. . For this reason, they appear mainly on the area of your body exposed to the sun such as face, hands, arms and décolleté.

Here’s the list of the best ingredients you should be looking for in your medical grade skin care when you are trying to get rid of hyperpigmentation

HYDRQUINONE

Hydroquinone is considered the gold standard for skin lightening. Hydroquinone limits the skin from creating excess amounts of melanin, which give the skin its color. Too much melanin clustered together causes brown spots. Hydroquinone interrupt this process causing brown pigment to gradually fade. Visible results in 2-3 weeks of consistent use.

EXFOLIATION

Exfoliation is used to remove dead skin cells that clog pores and diminish your skin’s youthful appearance. However, chemical and manual exfoliants can also remove darkened skin cells in the outer layers of skin, thus lightening your hyperpigmentation.

Enzimatic Exfoliation option:

Osmosis Purify Enzymatic cleanser

Osmosis Polish

RETINOL

When retinol and other retinoids come into contact with skin, enzymes in the body convert the retinol into retinoic acid, the active form of the vitamin. Namely, retinoic acid works to increase cell turnover, stimulate collagen and elastin production, fade hyperpigmentation, and help skin stay hydrated and glowing without irritation. Thanks to all this healthy turnover, retinol can treat and prevent everything from stubborn cystic acne and eczema to sun-induced wrinkles and dark spots.Visible results in 4 – 6 weeks of consistent use.

Vivier Retinol 1% Night Complex

Non Retinol option:

Osmosis Correct Retinaldehyde

SUN PROTECTION SPF

Sun protection is the key to any skin care routine but especially important when you are using a skin lightening product like hydroquinone. You won’t get the results you are looking for if you are not OBSESSIVE about using SPF 30 or higher. Don’t leave your house without it. Re-apply throughout the day

Osmosis Protect 30

Vivier Sheer 45

lASER & lIGHTS bASED Treatments

When you are looking to get rid of pigmentation, in most cases, light-based treatments are your best friend. 

IPL – Intense Pulsed Light
Usually used where a lot of blotchy brown skin or redness is visible. Healthier skin after 2 weeks, when your body gets rid of all damaged skin cell and clear broken capillaries.

ICON IPL

Alexandrite Laser

The 755 wavelength is used when we precisely want to target pigment. Excelent for stubborn pigment the IPL laser can’t get rid of. Work amazing on freckles. Great for pigments on arms and hands.

GENTLE MAX PRO

.

Picosecond Laser
Laser light is targeted at unwanted pigment in ultrashort picosecond pulses. These pulses shatter the pigment into very tiny particles which are then easily flushed by the body’s natural processes. The PicoWay laser emits less heat energy than traditional lasers providing a more comfortable treatment.
