Privé MEDSPA Hormonal Pigmentation/Melasma

Melasma, also known as hormonal pigmentation, is a considerable problem for many women. It is a chronic skin condition that occurs on the face in the form of brown patches and is a dynamic (active) condition that needs lifelong management.

Clínica Privé Tips:

What is the cause of increased pigmentation and darkening of the skin?
There are many possible causes of pigmentation disorders, which are marked by changes in melanin, the pigment in skin.

How is skin color produced?
The short answer is that melanin-its amount, quality, and distribution-creates human skin color. The slightly longer answer is that melanin is produced within melanosomes, organelles located in the cytoplasm of melanocytes (skin cells in the basal layer of your epidermis). The number of melanocytes in human skin is the same in people of all races; in darker-skinned individuals, though, the melanosomes are larger and contain more melanin. Once melanin is produced, melanosomes migrate to the melanocytes' dendrite tips, where they come into contact with keratinocytes, skin cells closer to the surface of the epidermis. The final stage of the pigmentation process, however, wherein melanin is transferred from the melanocytes to keratinocytes, is still poorly understood.

What is hormonal pigmentation, also known as melasma?
Melasma, also known as hormonal pigmentation. It is a chronic skin condition that occurs on the face in the form of brown patches and is a dynamic (active) condition that needs lifelong management. Its incidence is much higher in Asian and darker-skinned individuals than in fair-skinned people.

What appearance does Hormonal pigmentation/Melasma have?
Pigmentation disorders such as melasma or chloasma (during pregnancy) arise from increased melanin in the lower layers of the skin and increased free melanin in the skin. Hormonal pigmentation is usually brown with a non-distinct border, and is usually found symmetrically on the face or jawline. Melasma can appear on the central facial areas such as the cheeks, moustache, and forehead areas. Melasma affects both men and women, though it is more frequent in women (up to 30% may be affected) and usually starts to appear from the age of 28 years onwards.

What other Clínica Privé Brightening agents may be prescribed for you by the Skin Renewal doctors?
Many all-natural, topical skin-brightening agents have been found to be quite beneficial in lightening hyperpigmented areas of the skin. These include alpha arbutin, as well as kojic acid, azelaic acid nicotinamide and Liquorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra).

Topical applications of natural, fruit-derived alpha-hydroxy acids, including glycolic acid, have been extremely beneficial in combination with the aforementioned bleaching agents. For enhanced results, these products should be used in conjunction with exfoliation treatments such as peels and transdermal pigment lightening Mesotherapy.

The following is a list of skin care ingredients to AVOID due to worsening melasma pigmentation and dark spots.
Oestradiol, oestrogen, genistein ,black cohosh, chasteberry, hops, red clever, soy, wild yams.

What are new pigmentation peptides developments in the treatment of Melasma/ Hormonal pigmentation?
1. ZO MEDICAL´s MELAMIN, an advanced pigmentation program which addresses hyper-pigmentation by reducing melanin at several points in its production, as opposed to just one point as with other treatments.
2. Mixing RETAMAX & MELAMIN has Oligopeptide 34 plus 3 new novel pigmentation peptides added to the formula which offers excellent results in combating epidermal and post inflammatory hyper- pigmentation (PIH).
An added benefit is that the combination of peptides used in the range offers anti-ageing benefits to the skin as they stimulate collagen producing cells. By adding the supplement HELIOCARE, the melasma will be reduced further by 37% within 4 to 6 weeks of use.
3. BRIGHTENEX by ZO MEDICAL Brightening System is a revolutionary multi-faceted system that dramatically improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation tolerably and without the side effects associated with prescription Hydroquinone or retinoids. An innovation in skin brightening technology, this Brightening System uses a decapeptide to target existing hyperpigmentation and to prevent its recurrence. BRIGHTENEX products are proven to be powerful but gentle on skin. BRIGHTENEX is ideal for all skin types.

The following is a list of skin care ingredients to USE if you have Melasma;
arbutin, bearberry, cucumber extract, hydroquinone, kojic acid, licorice extract, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate, mulberry extract, niacinamide, retinol, resorcinol, beta hydroxyl acid, vitamin c, oligopeptide 34,
