Treatments for Melasma. Click here!
Melasma is a type of skin complication that occurs because of excess production of melanin pigment in the skin cells. It appears as brown or bluish patches on the skin or freckle-like spots. Although it can affect any part of the skin, it occurs on the face, neck, and forearms.
Melasma develops due to various triggers, such as excessive sun exposure, hormonal imbalances, and certain medications, which lead to skin inflammation and discolouration. However, note that all of these events occur at the cellular level. Hence, generic topical treatments that work on the skin’s surface may not show optimum results.
Fortunately, skincare solutions developed through science-backed technologies, along with a few lifestyle changes, can work on reducing melasma effectively.
5 high-science ways to reduce melasma
VB3+HR+RPC Technology: It is a revolutionary concoction infused with niacinamide, hexylresorcinol, and retinyl propionate with a retinol booster that minimises hyperpigmentation in four weeks.
Hexylresorcinol works by inhibiting melanin overproduction, niacinamide calms skin inflammation and hinders melanin transfer to the skin’s surface. Moreover, retinyl propionate increases cell turnover. Therefore, this triple combination works more effectively than other ingredients in reducing hyperpigmentation.
Experts scientifically researched and backed this formulation to work on all the root causes of melasma. It is a one-of-its-kind technology that offers long-term benefits for melasma and reduces other types of hyperpigmentation as well. The triple combination has been clinically proven to provide an even skin tone in eight weeks.
SPF: One of the essential steps you must take to treat melasma is ensuring that it doesn’t get worse. Include a sunscreen with an SPF between 30 and 50 in your skincare, and reapply every 2 hours when you’re out in the sun. Sunscreen prevents the UV rays from reaching the deeper layers of your skin, reducing the chances of skin inflammation and further skin discoloration.
Regulate hormones: Hormonal imbalance is one of the main reasons for melasma. Increased oestrogen and progesterone cause excessive proliferation of melanocytes, which forms melanin pigment responsible for skin colour. Therefore, you need to work on incorporating lifestyle changes that regulate hormones, which in turn curb hyperpigmentation and reduce the chances of melasma.
Nutrient-rich diet: A nutritious diet cannot completely cure, but it can certainly build your skin health and prevent the worsening effects of melasma. Some nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins (A, C, and E), and zinc boost overall skin health. They help minimise skin inflammation and increase collagen production, resulting in resilient skin tissues.
In-clinic treatments: These treatments need to be taken under clinical supervision, or they can damage your skin. However, most of these only work on the skin’s surface and do not go deeper or target all the root causes. Also, they do not help to generate new skin cells. Therefore, they are not a lasting solution for melasma.
With melasma, you need appropriate and advanced skincare. The science-backed and technologically driven approach is the ultimate solution. You will notice visible results with the right technologies recommended by experts, such as the VB3+HR+RPC combination—a solution that has been clinically proven to reduce hyperpigmentation in four weeks.
