Pigmentation Reduction versus Youthful Glow 

ALL-SKIN-TYPES
FOR ALL SKIN TYPES
“Most of us think that the only way to remove pigmentation, uneven skin tone, brown marks, age spots, or to bring back a more youthful glow to our skins is through fairly expensive laser or IPL (intense pulse light) treatments. So I am sure you will be surprised to hear that with today’s cutting edge skin ingredients all of the above can be achieved by choosing the correct skin regime or skin ingredient treatment plan.” Dr Alek Nikolic

My Step By Step Guide:

Step 1: Prevention

Preventing Dark Spots & Uneven Skin Tone

Your number one approach to a pigment free skin and a healthy glowing skin is an effective sunscreen.

I am a firm believer in using a broad-spectrum sunscreen that contains zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide. These minerals have shown that they effectively reflect harmful UV rays which is vital in achieving a pigment free skin. Dr Alek Nikolic

Sunscreen Recommendations According To Skin Type:

For oily, combination, or breakout-prone skin try HELIOCARE 360 GEL OIL FREE which provides a very mild sheer tint of color + mineral SPF to ward off sun damage and brown spots.

For normal, dry, or very dry skin consider HELIOCARE XF GEL SPF 50 or OBAGI PRO C VITAMIN SUNCARE SPF 30. These sunscreens both contain antioxidants to boost anti-aging benefits for the skin.

Hands and décolletage check out our HELIOCARE ADVANCED SPRAY SPF 50 which absorbs quickly into the skin and is also perfect for the kids.

Step 2: Choosing The Right Ingredients

Top Ingredients Choices For Pigmentation and Glow:

Retinol

My main ingredient of choice is retinol combined with other pigment reducing ingredients such as Kojic acid, Salicylic acid, Hydroxyphenoxy Propionic acid, and Ellagic Acid . Dr Alek Nikolic
  1. EXUVIANCE OPTILIGHT TONE CORRECTOR
  2. DERMACEUTIC ACTIV RETINOL 1.0
  3. SKINCEUTICALS ADVANCED PIGMENT CORRECTOR
  4. NEORETIN GELCREAM SPF 50
  5. OBAGI NUDERM FX STARTER SYSTEM Normal/Dry
  6. OBAGI NUDERM FX STARTER SYSTEM Normal/Oily

Niacinamide + Acetyl Glucosamine

The combination of these two ingredients is effective when trying to get rid of brown and red marks. Red marks are typically seen after inflammatory skin conditions such as acne.

All skin types can benefit from:

  1. NEOSTRATA SKIN BRIGHTENER SPF25
  2. NEOSTRATA ILLUMINATING SERUM
  3. EXUVIANCE AGE REVERSE HYDRAFIRM
  4. EXUVIANCE SUPER RETINOL CONCENTRATE

Ascorbic Acid: Vitamin C

Concentrations from 10% or higher of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) have been proven to significantly improve brown spots and other sun-induced discolorations. Furthermore research has shown that combining vitamin C with other skin-lighteners such as retinol increases the results that can be achieved.

Add OBAGI PRO C SERUM 15% to your favorite serum or moisturiser. It contains 15% ascorbic acid in for dramatically brighter, firmer and healthier skin.

Add OBAGI PRO C SERUM 20% over discolorations as a spot treatment for stubborn pigment marks and red inflammatory marks such as acne blemishes.

Still not sure which product to use the please contact our Customer Care Team who can help guide you to the best option for your skin.
