The goal in treating uneven pigmentation is to restore even coloration to the skin. While skin brightening serums are an important part of this process, there are some additional steps that can be taken to achieve optimal results.
Treating pigment disorders can begin with a chemical peel or photo-resurfacing to remove the pigment that is present in the outermost layers of the skin surface. This process provides a quick removal of unwanted pigment and helps even the look of skin. Once this process is performed, it is then necessary to suppress new melanin formation. As we discussed in an earlier blog, skin brightening serums are designed to do just that. If brighteners are applied without the chemical peel step, the product would have to penetrate those layers of skin to combat pigment irregularities that could have already been removed. Chemical peels and other resurfacing procedures simply speed up the time it takes to get favorable results from skin brightening products.
When using a brightening agent, it is good practice to use the product for three months and then stop using it for a few weeks. This helps reset the skin’s rate for producing melanin. If pigment irregularity recurs, then another three month round of skin brightener can be done.
Theraderm Enlighten Skin Brightener does not contain hydroquinone, an ingredient used in other skin brightening products. Instead, Therapon has found a way to produce the same results as those products by using natural ingredients. Therapon does not use hydroquinone in any of our products as it can cause permanent harm to skin.
Since sunlight and UV rays have caused the pigment problem, one must use sunscreen every day while suppressing pigment production. Otherwise, it would be like pushing and pulling on a door at the same time. No results can occur! Use Theraderm Platinum Protection Facial Sunscreen as a daily sun protectant to keep your skin safe from damage-causing rays.
