6 Specialized Hyperpigmentation Treatments

6 Specialized Hyperpigmentation Treatments

Hyperpigmentation treatments need to have some serious effectiveness in order to attack deeply rooted spots. Knowing which hyperpigmentation treatments to perform is half the battle, finding effective specialized hyperpigmentation treatments that actually work is the other half of the battle.  That’s why we reached out to our skin care gurus to find hyperpigmentation treatments that we thought were really unique and would be really effective.

We all know it’s a multi-pronged approach when trying to treat hyperpigmentation.  Skin care professionals can perform chemical peels  on their clients.  We live in a diverse world, so we have an article on treating hyperpigmentation on darker skin tones. They can even offer dual exfoliation services to help speed up the cellular turnover process. The L+A 2020 Fall Resurfacing Skin Care Guide has options to resurface along with post treatment healing products.

6 Specialized Hyperpigmentation Treatments That Make A Rock Star Facial

#1 Illuminating Eye

Illuminating Eye by E.F. Tropics

Illuminating Eye is one of the most unique and specialized hyperpigmentation treatments that we’ve found!

1.  Brighten The Eye Area 

Two Powerful Brighteners!

Resorcinol derivatives have been developed over the past 10 years.  Providing us with three skin lighteners that are more effective than Hydroquinone at the same level of concentration and are safe to use.

Resveratrol has a heightened activity, especially when combined with Resorcinol derivatives.  Resveratrol is a very important ingredient in lightening creams as it has several parallel actions. Poly-Resveratrol or Resveratrols of natural sources inhibits melanin production by delaying alpha- MSH hormone and by delaying TRP-2 protein.

2.  Reduce the Appearance of Under Eye Bags

Illuminating Eye helps to shrink and prevent bags under eyes by up to 70% in 30 days, as well as smoothing the appearance of fine lines by firming and toning the skin.  Many factors including tiredness, hypertention and medications, in addition to the natural effects of aging, contribute to the formation of bags under the eyes.

3. Reduce the Appearance of Under Eye Dark Circles

Illuminating Eye lightens under the eye dark circles with a combination of active molecules.  Pal-GHK and Pal-GQPR reinforce firmness and tone of the eye area.

Chrysin and N-Hydroxysuccinlmide activate the elimination of blood originated pigments responsible for dark circle color and local inflammation.

4. Reduce the Appearance of Side Temple Wrinkles 

The delicate tissue around the eye does not produce any nourishing, hydrating oils.  Illuminating Eye contains 50 KD Hyaluronic Acid to flood this delicate tissue with the moisture it needs to plump up and diminish the appearance of fine lines.   

5. Reduce The Appearance of Sagging Upper Eye Lid

Lifts the upper eyelid, smooths the fold of the eyelid and reduces Crow’s Feet.  Persian Skin Tree Extract (Albizia Julibrissin Bark) improves cellular respiration reducing AGE’s.  Darutoside will reduce inflammation and promote collagen production.
