Hyperpigmenation

Hyperpigmentation is caused either by the natural ageing process, hormonal changes or as a results of environmental damage such as repeated exposure to harsh sunlight.

Hyperpigmentation can be safely treated with our key proprietary ingredients.  The DermaFix range contain pigment reducing agents which improve dark spots, melasma and hyperpigmentation.  All DermaFix products are safe and free of Hydroquinone.

HOW HYPERPIGMENTATION STARTS

The melanocyte is the skin cell that produces the pigment called melanin. Excessive melanin formation is known as hyperpigmentation, this is a condition which arises as a result of excessive Ulra Violet Exposure from the Suns rays.

Suncreens that contain UVA and UVB filters such as zinc oxide, Avodensone and Titanium Dioxide protect the skin against as they are offer higher protection benefits when applied regularly.

Not all skin lightening products available today have the quality or quantity of active ingredients necessary to effectively resolve hyperpigmentation concerns. Many skin lightening ingredients are available which include N-Acetyl Glucosamine, Paper mulberry extract, Kojic acid, Vitamin-C, Azelaic acid, Alpha Arbutin, Niacinamide, Licorice and Bear Berry.

In more severe cases of hyperpigmentation, such as melasma, also known as “the mask of pregnancy” using a melanin antagonist helps to improve and prevent further hyperpigmentation.

An integrated skin care routine must be followed to control these concerns.

It is important to determine the cause of hyperpigmentation with UVA/UVB exposure having the most aggravating consequences.

Always protect your skin with a high protection factor sunscreen.  DermaFix DermaShield SPF 50, or DermaFix MD Professional SPF 50.
