Melasma affects 80% of women who are of child-bearing age, and now there’s a solution for it!
As your skin ages, you will notice that scars don’t fade as easily and there are sun-spots left from being outdoors even if you’re wearing sunscreen.
If you find that the traditional Glycolic acid or Lactic acid solution is too harsh for your skin, you must try Lumixyl, a brightening cream.
Lumixyl was developed by researchers at Stanford University for hyperpigmentation and melasma. Lumixyl works by restraining tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for the production of melanin.
A clinical study published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology demonstrated that Lumixyl visibly improves mild to moderate hyperpigmentation with excellent volunteer satisfaction in as little as 8 weeks. Studies also show that the peptide active in Lumixyl promoted the moderation of melanin more efficaciously than hydroquinone, which has been known to work but is also known to be a carcinogen.
I’ve used an HQ cream before, and I thought the results were amazing – Lumixyl works well but not as well as a good HQ cream. Still, I consider it to be a safer alternative, though you do need to use it for a longer period of time for it to really work.
Research also proves that Lumixyl does not cause increased sensitivity to sunlight as do many commonly used brightening agents and is gentle for all skin types and tones.
Lumixyl products are available in Canada through dermatologists, plastic surgeons and skin oriented aesthetic physicians through Clarion Medical Technologies, Canada’s leading provider of Aesthetic Solutions.
