Pigmentation Reduction Package – $849

Pigmentation Reduction Package

Pigmentation can dramatically age our appearance and can be difficult to cover up.

Pigment is produced by melanocytes found in the basal layer of the epidermis (the layer of our skin closest to the dermis where cell division occurs). Pigment production in these melanocytes occurs when an enzyme (tyrosoinase) causes oxidation of the protein tryosine.

Pigmentation occurs due to three main causes:

  1. Photodamage: When we hit 40 our skins start to show up the sun damage we have accumulated in our youth, and we begin to see age spots appear.
  2. ystemic Conditions: For example, pregnancy hormones can leave us with a chloasma mask, as can taking some birth control medications.
  3. Inflammation: Damage to the skin can trigger pigmentation, for example over treatment with laser or IPL, or, acne scarring.

The Pigmentation Reduction Package offers an effective way to achieve a brighter, more even skin tone, free of dark spots and hyperpigmentation, eliminating skin cells rich in melanin. Designed to deal with the build-up of pigmentation in the skin and prevent further pigmentation developing, this package is ideal for those who have visible sun damage, chloasma, or age spots.

This package includes all the products you will need and the treatment(s) can be performed on any one area of the body you chose, most commonly treated areas include the face or hands. You will need to start on the products at least 2 weeks (but preferably 4 weeks) before treatments begin. The package includes a skincare consultation prior to commencement where we perform a patch test for the peels discuss product use in detail.

Treatments

Before treatments begin you will have been using the required products for 2-4 weeks, this is important because it prepares the skin for effective treatment. The Retinol helps to prevent tryrosinase action in the skin therefore reducing pigment production, and C Tetra provides the skin with utilizable vitamin C to assist new skin cell growth. The White Balance range actively deals with the cause of the pigmentation so that when we begin the treatments we can maximise the benefits. Any one using Retinol products and/or having peeling treatments need to be using an effective sunblock to protect the fresh new skin cells from sun damage. The Brush on Block is by far our most popular suncare product, it goes on as a powder which is so light you can use it over make up but it is very effective – this product will change your life.

Medik8 WhitePeel will be used to perform 6 weekly peel treatments. This product contains four different active acids at a PH of 2.2 to achieve maximum results, with two of those (L-Lactic Acid and Phytic Acid) being specifically included for their anti pigmentation actions.

Each treatment takes 15 minutes but please allow 20 minutes for the appointment. You might feel a slight stinging sensation during treatment but this is quite bearable. Your skin may be slightly red after treatment but this fades usually within a few hours and at maximum lasts for 24 hours. The skin might peel slightly to reveal smooth skin with visible pigment reduction underneath after treatments – this is normal, please do not peel off the skin or pick at it, the skin will slough off by itself.
