 Listen-in today's episode as Pamela Springer discuss how professionals can treat skin discolorations

 

  A NEW YEAR, A NEW YOU!**
Red onion skins and New Year’s Eve have much in common – they both peel away to reveal new vibrancy.**


Do you struggle with hyperpigmentation, age spots or uneven skin tone and texture? Then you really need to use the right product to help the situation. An effective cream or lotion is the easiest way to make a huge difference in the appearance of skin with dark patches...

 

Hyperpig­mentation affects women and men of all ethnic groups, and features areas of darkened skin. Although it is most common in middle age and beyond, hyperpig­mentation can also be seen in much younger clients. Directly caused by either overactive melanocytes, the cells responsible for producing melanin (melanotic hyperpig­mentation), or a proliferation of the melanocytes themselves (melanoc­ytotic hyperpig­mentation), hyperpig­mentation presents no medical threat. However, it can sometimes be a symptom of disease or illness. What’s more, individuals with facial hyperpig­mentation may become so concerned with the aesthetic implications of the condition that depression and anxiety may ensue. Thus, the condition deserves serious attention, including a diligent approach to skin analysis coupled with a willingness to apply creative treatment approaches. - See more at: http://www.skininc.com/skinscience/physiology/149270785.html#sthash.WC2o9NxA.dpuf

The treatment of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) tends to be a difficult and prolonged process that often takes 6-12 months to achieve the desired results of depigmentation. Each of these treatment options potentially improves epidermal hypermelanosis, but none is proven effective for dermal hypermelanosis. Daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen (sun protection factor [SPF] 15 or greater) is an essential part of any therapeutic regime


A variety of topical treatments has been used to treat epidermal postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, with varying degrees of success. These agents include hydroquinone, tretinoin cream, corticosteroids, glycolic acid (GA), and azelaic acid.   Lightening of hyperpigmented areas may be achieved with one of the previously named topical agents; however, a combination of topical creams and gels, chemical peels, and sunscreens may be necessary for significant improvement. They are only effective for epidermal hyperpigmentation.Topical applications containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and retinoids, which exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin, are helpful in treating hyperpigmentation of all types. The following types of topical applications are available:
  • Hydroquinone. This topical application is the most commonly used, and it's the only skin lightening treatment approved by the FDA.
  • Kojic acid. This acid is derived from a fungus and works similarly to hydroquinone.
  • Azelaic acid. Developed to treat acne, this has been found to be an effective treatment for hyperpigmentation as well.
  • Mandelic acid. Derived from almonds, this type of acid is used to treat all types of hyperpigmentation.
Pigmented makeup creams have also been successfully used to camouflage hyperpigmented skin to a hue similar to that of the surrounding unaffected skin.



  • Skin brighteners improve your skin in a variety of ways. They change the reflection of light off the surface of the skin, while improving skin tone by increasing blood flow and skin cell regeneration.
  • Skin whiteners focus on the pigmentation cells in the skin and attempt to reduce their activity which gives the skin a whiter looking appearance.
  • Unlike whiteners, skin de-pigmentors focus on the other, abnormal pigmentation cells, by blocking UV rays with a sunscreen component and affecting inflammation
Whether or not you believe that skin whiteners and skin brighteners are actually different products, the choice you make will affect your goal to have lighter or more youthful skin.
There are many promising skin brightening products available today that can be used to make skin appear brighter and more youthful. At the same time, it is important to carefully consider the promised benefits of any skin brightener in the light of that product’s specific ingredients. A quality skin brightener should be formulated from compounds that show promise in lightening skin tone, a function that may also include reducing the prominence of freckles and other sun spots. Optimally, a skin brightener will also offer anti-wrinkle benefits to further promote the youthful appearance of facial skin. Of course, skin brighteners should also be able to help skin appear brighter and more radiant, just as their names suggests. To aid your search for the ideal skin brightening product, I have researched and found the perfect system for you and can assure you these products will make a difference giving you younger, healthier and brighter skin.

Causes of hyperpig­mentation

There are three main types of hyperpig­mentation, each of which is categorized by their cause.
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpig­mentation (PIH). This occurs following skin injury from acne lesions, psoriasis, burns, friction and even certain professional skin care treatments. It begins to fade as the skin regenerates itself—a process that can take months or more. On the positive side, PIH generally responds well to treatment.
  • Lentigines. These are commonly known as liver spots or age spots. Although they do become more prevalent with age—they are found on 90% of light-skinned individuals over the age of 601—they are not directly caused by the aging process. Rather, lentigines are related to UV exposure.
  • Melasma. This is caused by hormonal fluctuations, common, for example, during pregnancy, with thyroid dysfunction, and through use of birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy. It affects an estimated five to six million women in the United States alone and can often be difficult to treat.2
