Brown Spots? Redness? Wrinkles? Oh my…

The Esthetician Says

Yes, it’s that time again. Time to take a closer look at your skin. The summer sun is fading but not those blotchy brown spots on your cheeks. So now what? Bleach? Laser? Ski Mask?

Those brown spots, technically known as hyperpigmentation, affect all skin tones from the most pale to the darkest ebony. While the number one cause is sun exposure, pigmentation irregularities are also accelerated by hormonal changes, medications, skin inflammation, and blemishes. Depending on the cause, and your skin tone, discoloration can vary from red to tan, to brown or dark purple.

Reverse hyperpigmentation

  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen including antioxidants, at all times (no exceptions).
  • Topical application of antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Green, Tea Extract, Turmeric Extract and cutting edge extracts like Kakadu Plum are essential.
  • Use products to exfoliate dead and hyperpigmented cells, and stimulate the production of new cell growth. Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids, enzyme treatments and gentle facial scrubs accelerate cell turnover.
  • The ingredient, hydroquinone is used to lighten the visible appearance of hyperpigmentation. Available in various percentages it can be an extreme sensitizer on the skin and cause a halo effect, lightening the area around the dark spot. It is a widely controversial and studies have noted it’s mutagenic and cancer causing potential. It is banned in many parts of the world.
  • Regular professional facial treatments that exfoliate and infuse antioxidants into the skin help to improve skin tone and texture, reduce fine lines, and stimulate elastin and collagen production.
