The end of summer is approaching, and it is time to settle accounts with our skin. Have you sunbathed a lot? Have you put on sunscreen? Have you continued to hydrate your skin?
As we already explained in this article, sunbathing is very beneficial for our physical and mental health. However, prolonged exposure, especially without adequate protection, can cause spots on the skin of the face, décolleté, arms and hands, which is the most exposed to the sun’s rays. We call them “sunspots” or “liver spots”.
Why do sunspots appear on the skin?
Sunspots on the skin are nothing more than an irregular pigmentation that occurs when there is an increase in the production of melanin.
Melanin is a pigment that forms in the epidermis to protect the skin from UV rays. Cells called melanocytes are responsible for producing enough levels of melanin.
When there is an alteration in the function of these cells and the production of melanin increases (hyperpigmentation), then sunspots appear on the skin.
“Hyperpigmentation usually occurs in areas where the skin is most exposed to the sun, such as the face, décolleté, arms and hands.”
What causes Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation, like pigmentation, starts when UV rays from the sun enter our skin. Melanocytes begin to manufacture melanin, but some are damaged by these UV rays and begin to generate melanin excessively and continuously.
There are several factors that increase the likelihood of this occurring:
You don´t use sunscreen every day, do you?
The skin receives UV rays all year round, not just in summer. That is why it is necessary to use a good sun protection cream if you do not want to have sunspots on your face.
With age, the skin has a harder time regenerating cell, cell oxidation increases and the possibility that melanocytes malfunction is bigger.
That is why it is very important to have the skin well hydrated and cared for, to delay this cellular ageing.
Other risk factors
Hormonal changes (pregnancy, menopause) can increase pigmentation.
Some medications, as well as some cosmetics and creams, may have photosensitive ingredients that cause hyperpigmentation.
Skin lesions such as acne scars or burns are more prone to hyperpigmentation.
Prevention is very important, as we have already said by using photoprotection all year round and taking care of the skin with hydration and vitamins that help keep the cells young.
MesoFace contains Hyaluronic Acid, Trace elemnets and Vitamins. As a result, the skin becomes stronger and more resistant to aging while existing lines and wrinkles diminish. It is an excellent vitamin and anti-aging treatment. The product brings a lot of luminosity to the face.
But if you still have sunspots, the solution is MesoGluta 1200 !!
Worlddermic® MesoGluta 1200 contains Glutathione, a peptide that reduces the production of melanin in the skin, thereby smoothing out blemishes on the skin.
On the other hand, it is also a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from oxidation and boosts the immune system, thus delaying ageing.
Glutathione is an essential component in the treatment of melasma and depigmentation due to its ability to inhibit melanin synthesis. We can summarize by saying that Glutathione has two main actions:
- Super antioxidant action: Reduces oxidative stress.
- Depigmenting action: Reduces tyrosinase activity.
This biological product also incorporates Glycolic and Acetic Acids, which optimizes the results of the treatment of skin blemishes and provides luminosity.
This excellent cocktail of Glutathione, Glycolic A. and Acetic Acid makes Mesogluta 1200 the perfect treatment to reduce hyperpigmentation and obtain brightening and renewed skin.
Here you can see the results after using Mesogluta 1200 for 3 sessions with Dermapen.
