Did you know that Laser treatments and some exfoliating products, while effective for lighter skin, can make matters worse in highly pigmented skin by triggering excess melanin production!

Dark-skinned humans have high amount of melanin found in their skinMelanin is derivative of the amino acid tyrosine. Eumelanin is the dominant form of melanin found in human skin. Eumelanin protects tissues and DNA from radiation damage of UV light.

Some skin peels provide a gentler alternative to harsh scrubs by evenly removing the top layer of dead skin without triggering melanin production.

Skin color is due primarily to the presence of a pigment called melanin , which is controlled by at least 6 genes. Both light and dark complexioned people have melanin. … In lighter skincolor is also affected by red cells in blood flowing close to the skin.

The use of a derma pen with Nano needles can help exfoliate the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin on the face and make the products penetrate the skin deeper to further refine and brighten the complexion.

Hyperpigmentation is a common skin issue for people of color because darker skin more readily produces melanin. Laser treatments can be dangerous for pigmented skin, so it’s important to try a gentler approach to break up dark spots.
