TACHES PIGMENTAIRES

Combattre les taches brunes et le manque d’homogénéité du teint

L’excès de mélanine, le pigment naturel qui colore la peau, est dû à l’exposition aux UV, à des fluctuations hormonales ou à un traumatisme et est responsable du manque d’homogénéité du teint et de l’apparition de taches brunes. SkinCeuticals propose toute une gamme de produits qui traitent ce problème en douceur et en toute sécurité en éclaircissant l’apparence du pigment naturel et en prévenant la formation d’une décoloration supplémentaire.

Learn more about discoloration

what is skin discoloration?

Discoloration, sometimes referred to as hyperpigmentation or dark spots, appears in the form of dark patches. It is a common skin concern and can be isolated or diffused. As discoloration is mainly caused by years of accumulated sun exposure it can appear on exposed areas, including face, neck, chest, hands, and arms. Discoloration can result in a prematurely aged appearance.

What causes skin discoloration?

Skin contains melanin, a naturally-occurring pigment that gives skin color. Its purpose is protective, which is why skin becomes darker when exposed to the sun without sunscreen. Melanin can also be produced in excess as a protective response to insults or attacks on the top layer of skin.

While sun exposure is the primary cause of skin discoloration, a variety of factors can contribute such as genetics, hormonal fluctuations, acne, localized skin irritation, and other environmental aggressors such as pollution-induced free radicals. Regardless of the cause, skin discoloration can be present as dark patches, isolated spots, or an overall darker facial appearance. It is often difficult to treat and prevention is key for managing skin discoloration in topical skincare. This requires diligent use of sunscreen and an effective topical vitamin C antioxidant.

What ingredients should I look for when purchasing products targeting skin discoloration?

There are many ingredients that claim or have been shown to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration and brighten the skin’s complexion. Well-studied ingredients include pure vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) and phloretin, potent antioxidants both featured in Phloretin CF and Phloretin CF Gel. Retinol is another key ingredient shown to be effective in treating discoloration and is often recommended by dermatologists. Kojic acid and arbutin are two well-documented ingredients that work synergistically together to improve the appearance of unwanted discoloration. SkinCeuticals Metacell Renewal B3 features niacinamide, another important ingredient in addressing discoloration. Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, helps reduce the appearance of discoloration and blotchiness.

Hydroquinone is also a common ingredient used primarily by physicians, but is available at lower percentages without a prescription. Many physicians recommend alternatives to hydroquinone due to its side effects. Sunscreen filters are also essential for discoloration concerns because they protect skin from UV damage.

How can I update my skincare regimen to help target skin discoloration?

The most comprehensive solution for improving the appearance of skin discoloration is prevention and correction. Incorporate an effective topical vitamin C antioxidant such as Phloretin CF or Phloretin CF Gel every morning to prevent against UV- and pollution-induced free radicals. A broad spectrum sunscreen is also a necessity to shield skin from the UV rays that can prompt pigment-producing cells to create new (and unwanted) melanin. Lastly, combining with targeted corrective solutions formulated to reduce the appearance of existing discoloration and brighten skin will optimize results. SkinCeuticals Advanced Pigment Corrector is a daily multi-action lightweight lotion that helps reduce the appearance of stubborn skin discoloration and improves overall skin tone. Reducing the appearance of discoloration takes time, be patient and diligent with a regimen.

Are there any in-office treatments than can help improve skin discoloration?

Physicians and skincare professionals are invaluable partners in treating discoloration. They offer a variety of treatments that can quickly and effectively reduce the appearance of skin discoloration. Options include lasers, intense pulsed light (IPL), and chemical peels. They will recommend the best course of treatment according to skin tone, discoloration severity, and tolerated downtime. Lasers and IPL treatments use light to target and remove melanin clusters in skin. Chemical peels use a variety of acids to exfoliate and reduce the appearance of discoloration. SkinCeuticals Advanced Corrective Peel is a medically exclusive chemical peel for comprehensive skin texture refinement and improvement of the visible signs of discoloration. Your SkinCeuticals skincare professional will also recommend at-home skincare products to complement your treatment.

What is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation?

Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is a type of dark spot that can occur after an acne blemish injury to the skin. It can also be caused by heat associated with sun radiation, waxing, laser treatments, or other in-office procedures. PIH is more common in darker skin tones.

Les taches pigmentaires de la peau, problème extrêmement répandu, se manifestent par des taches de vieillesse, des taches dues au soleil ou une hyperpigmentation.

SkinCeuticals

La principale cause des taches de vieillesse est l’exposition non protégée au soleil ainsi que l’exposition accidentelle, comme par exemple lorsque vous quittez et regagnez votre voiture. La production d’une pigmentation non homogène dans les couches profondes de l’épiderme est alors déclenchée. Bien que l’application soigneuse d’un filtre solaire et d’antioxydants topiques aide à prévenir les taches pigmentaires, les produits destinés à traiter l’hyperpigmentation peuvent être utilisés en complément. Afin d’homogénéiser le teint, les soins destinés à lutter contre l’hyperpigmentation agissent à différents niveaux dans le processus de production des pigments, soit en ciblant les enzymes nécessaires à la production des pigments, soit en empêchant le dépôt des pigments dans la peau. L’exfoliation seule (par le biais de gommages ou du rétinol) peut aussi améliorer l’apparence des taches de vieillesse en éliminant les couches superficielles de l’épiderme dans lesquelles résident les pigments. La façon la plus efficace de prévenir les taches pigmentaires reste cependant l’utilisation quotidienne de protections solaires et d’antioxydants topiques, et une routine adaptée pourra améliorer l’aspect d’une hyperpigmentation existante.
