What Is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is when the skin appears dark, blotchy, and uneven in colour. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin colour, forms excess deposits
in the skin as a form of protection. There are different forms of hyperpigmentation which differ in depth and cause. Hyperpigmentation can affect skin colour of people of any race, although darker skin types tend to struggle more. Hyperpigmentation is a very difficult condition to treat and is dependant on the depth of that pigment.

Epidermal (superficial) hyperpigmentation 

This hyperpigmentation can be treated effectively with cosmeceutical products containing active de-pigmenting ingredients as it sits in the epidermis.

Dermal (deeper hyper pigmentation)

This hyper pigmentation cannot be treated effectively with any cosmeceutical de-pigmentation ingredient as it lies in the dermal layer. The only effective treatments are specific pigment lasers.

A mixture of epidermal and dermal hyper-pigmentation 

Certain cosmeceuticals containing active de-pigmenting ingredients will be effective in reducing the epidermal hyperpigmentation; however the dermal pigmentation will remain unaffected.

There are a number of different factors that can trigger hyperpigmentation namely:

Sun damage is a very common trigger for hyperpigmentation, especially in hotter climates such
as Africa’s. Freckles, age spots, and other darkened skin patches can become darker or more pronounced when skin is exposed to the sun. This happens because melanin absorbs the energy of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays in order to protect the skin from damage.

Melasma or Chloasma is hyperpigmentation triggered by hormonal changes/influences. Pregnancy, for example, can trigger overproduction of melanin that causes hyperpigmentation on the face. Melasma frequently reduces after pregnancy. Women who take birth control pills may also develop hyperpigmentation because their bodies undergo similar kinds of hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy.

Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation is another form of hyperpigmentation that is caused by any type of trauma to the skin. (e.g. Acne) Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) causes skin darkening and discoloration that show
up as spots, or as large patches on a person’s skin. This is because cells that normally produce brown pigment evenly across your skin produce too much melanin. This happens because of an inflammatory reaction in the skin, or injury to the skin. Although PIH can occur in all skin types, it is more common in people from African, Asian, Latin, and Indian backgrounds and can affect men and women equally.

Lamelle’s Answer

Traditional cosmeceutical products as well 
as prescription medications try to combat hyperpigmentation by blocking a single pathway in the formation of melanin. These products generally offer disappointing results or affect the skin’s integrity in an unfavourable manner (redness irritation and sometimes worsening of hyperpigmentation). Seeing that hyperpigmentation is such a difficult condition to treat, Lamelle Research Laboratories decided to find more innovative and effective ways of dealing with the condition whilst maintaining the integrity of the skin with no irritation or sensitivity. Luminesce is suitable for all skin types.

What Makes The Luminesce Range Unique?

Luminesce addresses hyperpigmentation by
reducing melanin production at several points in
its production as opposed to just one path. Using a unique blend of 15 different depigmentation agents, the Luminesce system inhibits pigmentation production before, during and after melanin synthesis. This wider inhibiting effect is an industry leader and has positioned Lamelle Research Laboratories’ Luminesce range as one of the most innovative in the industry. Lamelle Research Laboratories has been using innovative peptides (i.e. Oligopeptide-34) 
for treating pigmentation since 2006 and has
just added three new peptides to this program. Luminesce offers brilliant results in combating epidermal hyperpigmentation, and the combination of the peptides used in Luminesce will also stimulate fibroblast activity to provide an anti-ageing solution to the skin.
