Dark spots (also called sun spots, age spots or hyperpigmentation) can make your complexion look uneven and dull. Dark spots can appear on your face, hands and décolletage, They occur as a result of sun exposure, genetics, hormones and inflammation. However dark spots are more prevalent with age and skin inflammation. In fact any inflammation or injury to the skin can cause dark spots.
And many people instead of treating the problem, – just cover up these dark spots with makeup. But instead of just covering up dark spots w with concealer & foundation, we have developed products and treatments that are dark spot removers that remove the dark spot for good.
Use Dark Spot Removers instead of makeup
We have 2 effective dark spot removers – a treatment & a topical product namely Dermal Renewal Treatment & Rasayana Rejuvenating Serum. Both work to lighten dark spots resulting from acne, sun damage or inflammation. They work by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase, which is responsible for the production of melanin in the skin. Our Rasyana Rejuvenating Serum also increases the rate at which skin cells renew themselves thus helping to treat the reduce the number of damaged cells in your skin. Our Dermal Renewal Treatments works quickly and effectively to removed dead, damaged skin cells, making way for fresh, new cells.
How are our Dark Spot Removers different?
Dark Spot Remover Treatments
Most dark spot treatments use acids to exfoliate the skin. Think glycolic acid or chemical peels. These can cause irritation and damage to the skin in the long run. However our Dermal Renewal Treatment gives you the same results as a chemical peel but none of the side effects. This is because our Dermal Renewal Complex uses enzymes that break down keratin. Keratin is found only in dead skin cells. By breaking down keratin – this effective treatment removes dead and damaged skin cells to expose the healthy hydrated cells below. This Dermal Renewal Complex also contains other enzymes with work directly on the melanocytes – the cells that produce the pigments to rebalance them – resulting in immediate lightening of dark spots and overall brightening of your overall complexion.
Topical Dark Spot Removers
Most topical treatments that are used for dark spots contain the contentious ingredient – hydroquinone. It is available over the counter or through a prescription from your dermatologist. Hydroquinone is a skin-lightening agent that bleaches the skin. Hydroquinone causes dryness or irritation in sensitive skin. It is also only suitable for very fair skin tones. If you have a medium-to-dark skin tone, talk with your dermatologist before use. Hydroquinone may actually worsen hyperpigmentation in darker skin tones. Hydroquinone is not suitable for ethnic groups with darker skin tones – hence people of Indian, African or South American origin need to avoid this ingredient. Our Rasayana Rejuvenating Serum is free of hydroquinone. We use a natural herbal complex containing gotu kola herb, rosehip seed oil and amino acids to speed up cell healing and balance the melanocytes. Melanocytes are the cells that produce skin pigments. By balancing these cells the Rasyana Rejuvenating Serum lightens dark or age spots and improves complexion.
Use a Sunscreen
Sunscreen is the best way to prevent dark spots. Use a sunscreen with SPF of 30 to keep skin protected. Sunscreen is extremely important in protecting the skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays and also visible light, which stimulates hyperpigmentation in melanin-rich skin more than other skin tones. In these cases, sunscreen is more than just protective, it is essential in the treatment of hyperpigmentation. Some sunscreens are better than others. Sunscreens that contain iron oxide and carry a tint tend to provide better protection against visible light.
Other Dark Spot Removers
Topical tone correctors that contain a blend of antioxidants and proven actives like our Rasayana Rejuvenating Serum are the most effective at home dark spot removers.
Professional treatments like chemical peels, microneedling, and laser are also used. But these invasive treatments can often cause more damage than good. Our Dermal Renewal Treatment is the safe alternative to a chemical peel, microneedling or laser. Chemical peels are discussed above. Microneedling injures the skin to force blood to the surface of the skin to encourages healing. In some skin types these micro injuries can results in dark spots. Our products increase microcirculation without damaging the skin in any way.
Dark spots and hyper pigment can be tricky to treat. For stubborn pigment please see a board-certified dermatologist.
