Are you sick of trying to cover dark spots and pigmentation? Most people do not like uneven skin tone and colour. We have a number of options to treat pigmentation caused by Sun exposure, Trauma and Hormonal stimulation.
We determine the cause of your pigmentation, and then put in place a treatment plan to manage your pigmentation.
Pigmentation is a common skin concern and is due to the over production of pigment in the deepest layer of our skin. Our body produces pigment through a very complex process, and this is influenced by UV light, hormones, inflammation (or infection) and trauma. Sunscreen is our best defence against UV exposure.
Cosmetic chemists have researched the best ingredients to try and modify the pigment behaviour of our skin. This generally revolves around the enzyme Tyrosinase which triggers the tan process. Often you will see the words “tyrosinase inhibitor” on products, and this indicates that those ingredients help to slow the melanin production.
There are many cosmeceutical ingredients that have the ability to reduce pigment production. These include: vitamin A, vitamin C, soy bean extracts, kojic acid, niacin amide, licorice plant extracts, resveratrol, lactic acid, salicylic acid, glycolic acid. Serums should be based on using at least one or more of these ingredients.
Sunscreen - particularly a physical sunscreen is very important, as UV is the biggest trigger here. You can also speak to you GP about changes to your contraceptive pill if you suspect that your pigmentation is hormone induced (Melasma).
