Melanin (colour pigment in skin), is the body’s natural sunscreen and is also responsible for skin tone/ shade. Hyperpigmentation occurs when the body produces excess/ irregular amounts of melaninin in isolated areas or across the entire face.

How does skin darken?
The process of melanin production and ultimate darkening of the skin is via the oxidation of Tyrosine (into tyrosinase). This in turn catalyses the conversion of L-DOPA into Dopaquinone and finally eumelanin or pheomelanin (dark pigment). Fortunately – we are able to safely and predictably alter this process to aid in skin lightening while maintaining the health and integrity of the skin.

What are the causes of your discolouration/ uneven skin tone:
  • Sun Exposure: Ultraviolet rays from the sun stimulate melanocytes to produce more melanin and thus giving you a darker/ tanned appearance.
  • Hereditary Causes: A genetic predisposition to pigmentation
  • Inflammation: Wounds caused by cuts, burns, or chemical exposure or by inflammation due to acne, eczema, or psoriasis – may also lead to hyperpigmentation. During the healing process the area around the injury increases in metabolic activity, producing excess amounts of melanin, this in turn causes darkened scar tissue.
  • Hormonal Influences: Pregnancy, birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, menopause, adolescence and certain medications are the biggest culprits causing hormonal fluctuations. This type of pigmentation is referred to as melasma and manifests as brown or greyish-brown patches on the cheeks, nose, and forehead.
  • Illness: Hyper-pigmentation can also be indicative of certain autoimmune and gastrointestinal diseases, as well as metabolic disorders and vitamin deficiencies.

Recommended Treatment:
Clients must be treated with a tyrosinase inhibitor and retinol rich topical product (see Home Care).  There are several effective and safe means to minimize and remove pigmentation, dark skin, freckles and blemishes for flawless, even toned skin.
Using a unique combination of treatments and products – Dermetone brightens and clarifies by delivering active ingredients deep into the skin and lifting dark pigment out of the epidermal layer.
  • Mechanical Microdermabrasion: is an intense exfoliation that removes dry dull cells for a brighter, clearer complexion.
  • Microneedling: This is a medically accepted clinical procedure that creates fine channels in the scar tissue to trigger the body’s natural repair response. In addition – these tiny pores allow the infusion of serums and actives deep within the dermal layer where they are most effective.

Treatments are approximately 90minutes in duration and are done every 2-4 weeks.
Generally clients can expect to come through for 6-8 treatments and the magnificent improvements may be seen from your 2nd/ 3rd session

Home Care Essentials:
Treatment is initiated at the clinic but must be continued at home as prescribed.
Results are accelerated and more predictable when professional treatments are maintained with homecare products.
A customised range of products will be prescribed after a skin assessment has been conducted and a detailed medical history noted.
