HYPERPIGMENTATION 101

How To Get Rid Of Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation treatment requires patience and consistency. It may take time and consistency to see improvement. We recommend regular chemical peels combined with a four-step routine to help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation:

1. Cleanse with Enhance Brightening Cleansing Powder - Formulated with Glycolic, Malic and Mandelic Acid, this non-abrasive daily exfoliant removes dead skin cells and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Niacinamide helps to brighten the skin, fade discolorations and remove uneven skin tone.

2. Treat with TranEXamide Discoloration Treatment Serum - This dark spot treatment is formulated with a potent mix of Tranexamic Acid, Niacinamide and Kojic Acid to help even and brighten the complexion.

3. Moisturize with Enhance Brightening Complex - Azelaic Acid and Glycolic Acid deliver intense hydration, while brightening the skin for a more even, radiant tone.

4. Protect with Age Defense UV Mineral Sunscreen Serum Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ - Sunscreen is critical when preventing or treating hyperpigmentation. Formulated with antioxidants, like Vitamin E, Ellagic Acid and Niacinamide, this SPF delivers broad-spectrum UVA and UVB to protect your skin from free radical damage by the sun.
