Hyperpigmentation typically occurs because the body produces too much melanin in response to inflammation. This inflammation is usually caused by acne and the sun. Below are my top 3 hyperpigmentation treatments
1. Silkpeel Dermalinfusion
Like microdermabrasion, the SilkPeel exfolliates the top layer of skin that contains melanin. But here’s the cool part, it also infuses a serum containing Lumixyl, a skin brightening peptide . A two for one! Lumixyl lotion can also be used daily at home at speed the process.
Fotofacials employee IPL and radio frequency to remove the melanin not only in the top layer of the skin but in the deeper layer as well. It also removes spider veins , and increases collagen production. Bonus!
3. Vitamin A (retinol)
Vitamin A and it’s derivatives ( retin-a, retinol etc) help improve cell turnover thereby removing those melanin containing cells.
I’m not sure I need to say it but I will anyway…. wear your sunscreen to prevent those nasty spots from forming in the first place 🙂
