Pigmentation - Face
Skin pigmentation comes in various forms. One may have natural darkening which is very easy and in most cases successful to treat which is natural darkening found on the face- such as around the eyes, around the mouth,neck, hands, elbows, knee’s, etc. This type of natural skin darkening can be superficial in depth, found in the upper layers of the skin/epidermis. Results can be seen quickly using Scinderm’s basic range of products. Scinderm offers skin lightening products in varied strengths. Different combinations of products can sometimes be more effective, each client/patient has to find what works for their individual skin type and depth of skin pigmentation.
Scinderm offers three levels of treatment, outlined below:
LEVEL ONE: Most clients/patients should start on level one. We recommend the Melanowash to prepare and open the skin so that the skin lightening ingredients penetrate deeper in the skin reaching the melanin. Then choose one of the Treatment Creams that is most suitable to your problem or type of skin. And most importantly a physical sunscreen/block called Z Plus SPF 45 for sun protection. This first level of treatment especially necessary for those who have sensitive skins. After 4 to 6 weeks if the skin has tolerated level one and lightened significantly, but still has resistent skin pigmentation. We suggest you increase your treatment strength by increasing to level two by adding a serum/concentrate/complex or booster to your regimen and/or changing your treatment cream.
LEVEL TWO: Level two is achieved by adding one or more serum/concentrate/complex or booster to your home regimen from the Renew and Boost range. For stubborn skin pigmentation that is resistant to treatment increase to level three which is adding an exfoliant to the treatment regimen.
LEVEL THREE: Level three is adding a exfoliant to your skin home regimen which contains Beta and Alpha Hydroxy acids or enzymes that help to force or push the pigmentation " UP and OUT" of the skin. This is achieved by increased exfoliation and cellular skin turnover.
Treatment products recommend for level three: Fast Fade, Brightening Weekly Wipes, Enzyme Exfoliating Powder, Liqui zyme Mask or Retinol wipes added to the home regimen. We recommend all patients/clients start at level one and build up the strength slowly according to the skin tolerance level until they can totally CLEAR the pigmentation. This process may take a few months to a year of treatment depending of the depth and severity of the pigmentation. If the pigmentation does not clear easily, then read below.
Melasma is a common hypermelanotic disorder affecting the face that is associated with considerable psychological impacts. The management of melasma is challenging and requires a long-term treatment plan. In addition to avoidance of aggravating factors like oral pills and ultraviolet exposure, topical therapy has remained the mainstay of treatment. Melasma (from the Greek word, ‘melas’ meaning black) is a common, acquired, circumscribed hypermelanosis of sun-exposed skin. It presents as symmetric, hyperpigmented macules having irregular, serrated, and geographic borders. The most common locations are the cheeks, upper lips, the chin, and the forehead, but other sun-exposed areas may also occasionally be involved.
