Disorders of melanin pigmentation
Pigmentation concerns are a growing, global issue; they affect more than 90% of adults over the age of 50. Regardless of skin color, they are a significant issue because of their unattractive appearance and negative psychological and emotional impact, affecting quality of life. Melanogenesis is influenced by both exogenous and endogenous factors that can lead to a localized overproduction of melanin. This excess of melanin translates into unsightly spots of pigmentation, which in the majority of cases are harmless. They are acquired skin spots, different from those with a genetic origin.
Treatment with dermamelan® consists of two phases which ensure a long lasting and efficient result, due to the effects of the professional treatment being prolonged by the care at home. By making the melanin blemishes disappear it achieves a lighter, more luminous skin.
Dermamelan treatment is indicated as a home maintenance cream in cases of generalized hyperpigmentation. Following professional medical treatment, the "3, 2, 1" method is recommended as outlined below:
- During the first month after treatment, apply 3 times a day: morning, midday and night.
- During the 2nd and 3rd months, apply 2 times a day: morning and night.
- From the 4th to the 7th month, apply once a day: at night only.
