DARK SPOT REMOVAL + MICRONEEDLING
Dark Spots Removal Using Micro-needling
For best results, SkinShineMedspa offers micro-needling with topical treatments. Once the skin barrier is opened, it is also possible to infuse ingredients known to lighten the skin like vitamin C. We also use a wound-healing serum, or a hyaluronic acid-vitamin C compound to help with hyperpigmentation, especially in darker skin tones.
Think beyond orange juice: Vitamin C can be used as a topical antioxidant that helps to block free radicals from causing oxidative damage to the skin. It also inhibits enzymatic processes that produce melanin in the skin.
Another added benefit is that vitamin C only lightens targets problem pigmentation areas, not the rest of your skin.
When it comes to dark spot treatments, hydroquinone has been the gold standard for over 50 years. You can find this ingredient over the counter in concentrations of 2 percent or less, whereas the prescription has 4 percent or greater. On a biological level, hydroquinone works by inhibiting an enzyme called tyrosinase, which aids in the production of melanin.
Kojic acid (derived from mushrooms or fermented rice) is commonly used in skin lighteners, and is best used in conjunction with hydroquinone for maximum results. “It works by suppressing a key factor in the activity of the pigment cells.
This lesser-known ingredient is a treatment for dark spots on the face. Bonus: it has antibacterial properties that can help banish acne and the scars pimples leave behind.
