Melanin (the pigment responsible for giving skin its colour), is part of the skin barrier defense system protecting against Ultra Violet Radiation and pigmented blemishes as they are almost always the result of excessive stimulation by sunlight.
DermaFix skin lightening techniques correct and prevent the appearance of uneven skin tone and hyper-pigmentation, chloasma, scarring, sun spots and photo-ageing. Both UVA and UVB rays in excess are detrimental to the skin. The rays damage the membranes within the skin's cells, called lyposomes, which contain enzymes. The skin's ability to hold moisture in its outer layer is cumulative and irreversible from excessive exposure which can lead to cancer.
Correct preparation will ensure better skin lightening results. The enzyme tyrosinase plays a key role in the formation of the melanin pigment. Our skin lightening correctives contain actives which reduce tyrosinase activity and prevent the abnormal deposition of melanin.
DermaFix skin lightening correctives include Brightening Cleanser, Brightening Toner, MelanoDerm and Brightening Night with ACC Tranexamic Gell. Hyperpigmentation may also occur after trauma, inflammation, pregnancy or hormone therapy which stimulates the melanocytes and leads to chloasma or pregnancy mask.
DermaFix Skin lightening correctives are nappi coded and contain suitable actives that target existing hyperpigmentation as well as preventing the formation thereof. DermaFix Skin Lightening techniques may also include professional treatment protocol such a chemical peeling, rapid exfoliation and micro needle treatments.
