At Glow Medispa, we are always on the lookout for new and effective treatments for our patients who struggle with hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation can show up on the skin in a variety of ways, including age spots, pregnancy mask (melasma), and dark spots from injury to the skin.
Hyperpigmentation occurs when there is an overproduction of melanin, which is the pigment that gives our skin its color. Melanin is produced by melanocytes, which are specialized cells in the skin. The production of melanin is regulated by a complex set of pathways, and any disruption to these pathways can lead to hyperpigmentation.
SkinMedica's new Even and Correct serum and spot treatment target all 5 pathways of the melanin lifecycle, making them highly effective in treating hyperpigmentation. The serum and spot treatment are formulated with a unique blend of powerful ingredients, including ultra-concentrated lotus sprout extract, Tranexamic acid, and niacinamide. The spot treatment also contains retinol 0.25%. If you were using SkinMedica’s Lytera in the past, you will find that the new Even & Correct formula is even more effective.
The ultra-concentrated lotus sprout extract is a key ingredient in this formula. This extract is rich in antioxidants and has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to improve skin health. It has been shown to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots. It does this by breaking up existing pigment in the skin. Even & Correct is the only product that can actually diminish the appearance of existing pigment in this way.
Tranexamic acid (TXA) is another important ingredient in this formula, which is known for its ability to reduce the production of melanin. This ingredient has been used for years in the medical field to prevent excessive bleeding during surgery, but it has also been found to be effective in treating hyperpigmentation. By stopping melanin production, TXA prevents new dark spots from being formed.
Niacinamide is a powerful antioxidant that helps to reduce inflammation and improve the skin's barrier function. It has been found to be effective in reducing hyperpigmentation and improving skin texture.
Retinol 0.25% in the spot treatment is a powerful ingredient that helps to promote cell turnover and exfoliation. This ingredient is particularly effective in treating hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage. It decreases pigmentation by causing it to slough off from the surface of the skin.
The Even and Correct serum and spot treatment target all 5 pathways of the melanin lifecycle, including melanosome formation, melanin synthesis, melanin transfer, inflammation, and cellular turnover. This comprehensive approach ensures that hyperpigmentation is addressed at every stage of the process.
What makes these products unique is their ability to work on all skin types. Whether you have dark or light, dry or oily skin, these products are designed to be effective for everyone. They are also free of parabens, fragrance, and gluten, making them safe for those with sensitive skin.
To use the Even and Correct serum, simply apply a small amount to your face and neck after cleansing. For best results, use twice a day. The Even and Correct spot treatment should be applied directly to the affected area once a day, preferably at night.
In my experience, SkinMedica's Even and Correct serum and spot treatment are the most effective available to treat hyperpigmentation. They are clinically proven to improve the appearance of dark spots and even skin tone, making them a must-have for anyone struggling with hyperpigmentation, including age spots, pregnancy mask, and injury to the skin.
