Pigmentation spots are a major source of beauty concern: complexion is no longer homogenous, skin lacks radiance and brightness.The skin’s pigment is called melanin and pigmentation is genetically determined. Various factors may cause this coloring to become uneven and unsightly:
UVAs and UVBs (generally from the sun but also artificial UVs)
Specific treatments carried out by a doctor are available as well as targeted skin care concentrated in depigmenting ingredients.
The skin’s superficial layer which contains the pigments (and therefore the dark spots) is removed and left to regenerate a new layer with a more regular pigmentation. A brightening cream is applied several weeks before the treatment in order to prepare the skin.
