How to Treat Hyperpigmentation From Acne Scars

Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition that usually happens in women. The main causes is usually from being exposed to the sun too long. However, acne is also a common cause.

How Acne Scars Result in Hyperpigmentation

Not all acne scars will result in hyperpigmentation. There are cases when this does happen. This type of inflammation is deep in the surface and usually a blue-grey color. Sometimes, it is even resistant to treatment.
In this case, after the inflammation calms down, it leaves behind extra melanin and turns into dark spots on the skin. When constantly using makeup and acne creams don’t work, it can be frustrating. The good news, there are some ways you can treat this condition.

Best Way to Treat the Scars

The best way to treat these types of scars is to use a combination of gentle and effective products. Products like topical Retinoids and Alpha Hydroxy Acids are usually prescribed to patients who have this issue. While the condition can fade over time, using treatments will speed up the process.

Using Lightenex® Gold serum on your skin before you go to bed at night is the best way to start. When you first begin, use it every other night and see how your skin reacts. During the day, use Sun Blockex® SPF 50 to protect your skin from further sun damage.

When Will You See Treatment Results?

Always remember that skin care is a lifelong process. Just like regular skin care is daily routine, treating hyperpigmentation is the same way. If you use the recommended products consistently, it can take up to 6 months to see the results of the treatment.

Hyperpigmentation on the back

How to treat the Hyperpigmentation on the back

Hyperpigmentation corresponds to dark spots on the skin, that are more pigmented areas than the surrounding skin. These brown spots, more or less numerous and extensive, are generally concentrated on the parts of the body exposed to the sun: like the legs, the face or the back etc. Hyperpigmentation of the skin presents no danger. However, like in the case of the back, many people want to reduce or remove their brown spots for aesthetic reasons. There are different treatments today that have proven their effectiveness.

  • Lightenex® body lotion/scrub and Lightenex® Gold serum are excellent as a skin Lightener. The purpose of this articleis to explain how a regular use of these products will treat your hyperpigmentation based on medical facts.

Melanocytes are specific cells of the epidermis produce a brown pigment: melanin. It is the pigment that gives your skin, your hair and your eyes their natural color. The synthesis of melanin or melanogenesis takes place in melanosomes, inside melanocytes, from tyrosine through the action of an enzyme: tyrosinase. The melanosomes are then transferred to the surrounding keratinocytes which will subsequently transport the melanin.

Hyperpigmentation results from an overproduction of melanin in certain cutaneous zones. More or less large brown spots are formed, contrasting with the surrounding skin lighter. This overproduction results from a number of factors: excessive exposure to the sun, age, hormonal variations, genetic predispositions

To fight against pigmentary disorders, Lightenex products act on four levels. They affect the skin by different ways:

  • Exfoliation with active ingredients such as salicylic acid or Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA), including glycolic acid and Citrus MedicaLimonum peel extract, which ensure epidermal renewal. These exfoliating products promote the elimination of pigmented cells and also promote the penetration of depigmenting agents.
  •  Inhibition of tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for the production of melanin, thanks to active ingredients such as arbutin, kojic acid, B-resorcinol ... (depigmenting active ingredients).
  • An anti-inflammatory action to calm inflammation mechanisms with dexpanthenol or Salvia Officinalis extract
  • An antioxidant action with vitamins C, E, ferulic acid, which limit the deleterious action of free radicals.
  •  The sunscreens can also be integrated into the cosmetic formula.

The treatment of hyperpigmentation is indeed multifactorial, the Lightenex range for the care of the legs offers a global approach allowing to take care of these cases thanks to its rich and adapted composition.
We advise Lightenex® body lotion after washing the back with Lightenex scrub.
Lightenex® Gold serum should be massaged every night for persistent dark areas.
Lightenex® body lotion is the best whitening body lotion for black skin, Asian & ethnic skin.
Lightenex® Body Lotion is a specialist skin lightening formulation which has been specifically formulated to brighten skin, even for sensitive areas.
The skin on your body is much denser than on your face and you need specific concentrations of Actives in a base that will actually penetrate the thicker layers to make a visible difference.

  • In independent trials, 84% of the volunteers achieved 26% reduction of melanin levels within 8 week period.

As a doctor, I advise this product for a regular use 2to 3 times a week to treat hyperpigmentation.

Sun Block cream for Sensitive skin

Sun block is especially essential for sensitive skin, as this is particularly susceptible to sun burn.

It is imperative to protect your skin against UVA AND UVB rays.

Apart from a wearing a hat or carrying a sun umbrella, it is essential to apply a total sun block cream.

A good sun protection cream should contain a physical barrier e.g. Titanium dioxide. This can unfortunately leave a “white sheen” on the face. The more expensive sun block creams contain Octocrylene, which is colourless & actually sits in the skin for much longer, giving a better protection for a longer period.

In managing Scars, professionals often forget the contribution of inflammation to this process. The body responds to breaks in the skin by trying to close this wound as quickly as it can. Unfortunately, the body does not care what this scar looks like. Inflammation is the redness, swelling, heat & pain you get when the skin is broken. This causes an over-response by the body, which lays down collagen in the quickest way it can which, is inevitably ugly especially, if you are dark skinnedRead More
Eczema leads to dark patches in Asian & darker skinned people. This is because of two reasons:

1. The dark patches are usually blue-grey or slate coloured.

This indicates that the pigment melanin has gone into the deep dermal layer of skin.

This happens because the basal membrane of the top layer of skin namely, the epidermis where the melanin producing cell (melanocyte) sits, is damaged due to the inflammation of the eczema & the melanin instead of remaining in the top epidermal layer has leaked deeper into skin.
