Hyperpigmentation is a common condition in which areas of skin, often the face, develop dark spots or patches. Common forms are known as ‘age-spots’, ‘liver spots’, and freckles. Larger areas of darkened skin are known as melasma.
Darkening of the skin occurs when an excess of melanin (the brown pigment that produces normal skin colour) forms deposits in the skin. The main causes of this effect are sun damage, skin inflammations, acne and hormonal changes.
MelaClear - an intense depigmenting care serum has been expertly formulated to prevent and reduce melanin production and enhance and lighten hyperpigmented skin.
With regular twice daily use over a 2 month period MelaClear serum reduces the free radicals that trigger melanin synthesis, blocks and reduces melanin production and significantly increases exfoliation of hyperpigmented cells clearing and renewing the skin.
The use of high level UVA/UVB sun protection is very important during an after depigmenting care. Melaclear very high protection sunscreen has been specifically formulated for this use.
