These are your first steps in therapeutic treatment and progressive resolution and will be increased if and as necessary.
The darkening occurs when the chronically inflamed pigment producing cells deeper in the skin produce as a result and contain an excess buildup of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color and helps protect from sunlight, due to all the causes of inflammation or these melanocytes die containing the excess pigment due to the chronic inflammation. This can occur in darker patches called melasma or spots on the skin. Treating the body internally via eating healthily-Eat Right for your Blood Type, the more green, the darker, the closer to nature the better, exercising healthily not OVER exercising to further inflame, antioxidants and attempting to find, address and cure the cause as well as externally with chirally/chemically correct, nontoxic ingredients yet Maximal and Physician Strength and visible result Skin Therapy products and peels is the scientifically correct solution for resolution, future prevention and longevity of clear skin results.
BE AWARE that many products marketing campaigns claim to quickly resolve these pigment issues which is rarely a scientifically correct claim and some products temporarily fade and when you stop them the pigment returns equally and have well known toxicities due to their ingredients. My recommendation is not to spend money on marketing claims nor on products which increase inflammation when inflammation is the cause of the problem. It is difficult for you to know what works vs what is marketing which is why I try to educate you-AND me-continually.
Abnormal pigment is NEVER easily resolved as it is deep in the skin and first if you do not stop the cause as much as possible then it just duplicates itself continually, which is why it is IMPERATIVE to treat internally as well and the internal products I have recommended are a good start to help.
Externally—the goal is to rid and exfoliate off the body as quickly as possible and yes some products due to their scientifically correct ingredients do lighten progressively, non-toxically and exfoliate optimally and correctly as quickly and effectively as possible by reducing and/or balancing and exfoliating the abnormal pigment in the dead or inflamed cell such as the ingredients in my SERUM, VITAMIN C PLUS, SUN PROTECTION and REPAIR, VITAMIN A PLUS, PEEL, NIGHT REGENERATION and my professional peels- REPAIRING EXFOLIANT, RETINOL RESTORATION, PERFECTING PEEL.
RETINOL RESTORATION and PERFECTING PEEL are EXCELLENT physician maximal strength, nontoxic professional peels whose ingredients are known for progressively peeling abnormal pigment off/ out of the skin while rejuvenating, lifting, tightening, treating other skin challenges of damage and aging.
External resolution may also be helped with best tool for the job lasers which “see” and explode the abnormal pigment containing melanocyte in the skin then the body recognizes the cell is damaged/dead thus consumes it internally and exfoliates and repairs it away. This all depends on what type of pigment containing cell your skin has produced. I use skin products and peels first to move the pigment from deep in the skin to superficial in the epidermis so the laser can most likely completely remove the most pigment in one treatment as pigment removing lasers should only penetrate a certain depth into the skin otherwise they destroy healthy pigment and result in a white spot replacing the brown spot. That is why most of these lasers have to be used multiple times and if they are not strong enough they will never rid the pigment which is the goal rather just lighten it. Sometimes weak lasers are improperly used to try to make them stronger resulting in a number of side effects. BEST TOOL FOR THE JOB lasers for abnormal pigment in my experience are IN MODE by INVASIX – LUMECCA and Cutera brown spot lasers -VARILITE and EXCEL V.
VERY IMPORTANTLY—if your skin is pigmented heritage, then you MUST be aware that these lasers can negatively impact your pigment if not used cautiously by someone experienced. Discuss this always with the practitioner.
Internal protection is KEY to prevention and the more antioxidants as well as the above supplements the better and equally EXTERNAL protection of skin with layering sun protection against UV, infrared, reflection and heat. VITAMIN C and SERUM are sun protective and the sun screen and helping to repair as damage occurs serum in SUN PROTECTION AND REPAIR is the second layer and CRITICAL to reapply as all sunscreen is short lived physically and consumed by the skin’s needs. So physical coverage with hats and sun protective clothing and NON-TOXIC ingredient and sun protective makeup is an important further layer. In my office we use and recommend Oxygenetix makeup.
With abnormal pigment—PREVENTION IS KEY—from HEALTH comes BEST beauty and MOST slowing of aging.
