"I avoid taking any family pictures even with my kids and avoid all social occasions, it is affecting me". Lisa is not alone, and if you share some of her issues, we are here to help you with our special Pigmentation and hyperpigmentation protocol.
What is pigmentation?
We will try to make it simple. Pigmentation is having some darker skin areas on the face. Hyperpigmentation appears on the face due to the irregular activity of melanocytes, the cells that are responsible for the melanin productions.
What is Melanin, is it bad?
NO, Melanin is not bad, it gives our skin and hair its color. (think of it as ink), but the uneven melanin in the skins causes pigmentation.
Dark and light melanin!
To be more specific, thee Eumelanin is responsible for dark skin colors, whereas, the Pheomelanin is responsible for lighter skin and hair colors. Moreover, the enzyme tyrosinase plays an important rule in hyperpigmentation.
Melanin life cycles!
Melanocyte (A special type of cells) are the source of all melanin in our skin. The keratinocytes; the cells that form the skin outer layer gets the pigment from melanocytes, and store them in melanosomes (think about it as a bag of ink). One melanocyte is responsible for feeding 30-40 keratinocytes. The color of the skin and hair depends mainly on the type of the melanin and the way it is distributed in the keratinocytes. Epidermis, the outer layer of the skin, contains most of our melanin. Therefore, the uneven distribution of the melanin causes all pigmentation issues such as Melasma.
Hyperpigmentation is multifactorial!!!
Under several conditions, the melanocytes started to overproduce the pigment melanin, and the extra production results in irregular deposition in the keratocytes, hence the unwanted pigmentation. The reason that induced the irregular activity of the melanocytes decides the. For example, melasma is mainly induced by hormonal changes during and after pregnancy, hence the name (mask of pregnancy).
Our Protocol for Hyperpigmentation
There is no all-inclusive treatment for pigmentation and melasma. After consultation, we will design an individual treatment plan should target three different problems; Skin resurfacing, Melanocytes and Melanin overproduction.
We formulate a special cream which is customized the cream according to your skin needs and nature. The cream provides both anti-tyrosinase, chemical peel, fruit acid peel, and skin lightening components. The client uses this cream for the two weeks of the protocol
In the third weeks, we treat the skin with Silk Peel, an advanced form of microdermabrasion, using Lamyxal solution. This procedure provides both mechanical peeling and anti-tyrosinase activity.
the fourth week of the protocol we apply a special poly-peptide solution with gentle micro needling to provide further inhibition of the pigmentation that gives melasma patches its dark color. After the 1-2 weeks break the laser will be started.
Nano-second Q-switch Laser
This laser is the cornerstone of pigmentation treatment The short pulse width in this dual-lengths laser, along with the photoacoustic properties of the laser beam, will give excellent results for all kinds of pigmentations. These include freckles, sun spots melasma.

WHAT RESULT WOULD I EXPECT AFTER THE PROTOCOL?
