Unless you’ve been living in a dark cave your entire life, you’re probably familiar with brown spots. And while we can call them by a number of fancy names, they are still annoying. The worst thing about them is that they seem to keep coming back. So what are they?
Brown spots, or dyschromias as we medical professionals refer to them as, are quite simply signs that your skin has suffered damage over the years and represent localized collection of pigmentary change. Another cause of these spots is changes in your hormones. Many women suffer from melasma following pregnancy, which is why these changes are often referred to as the “mask of pregnancy”.
The more brown spots you have, the less even your skin tone appears and the less youthful you may look overall. In the past, many physicians have used a variety of technologies such as IPL or CO2 laser to treat brown spots but they have found that the cures were either temporary or may have even made the spots worse. Topical compounds such as hydroquinone was used but even this had its downsides. Recently, there has been concern that long-term use of hydroquinones may actually lead to skin cancer. So what can you do?
As a proud partner of SkinMedica, we are pleased to announce the release of the Lytera Skin Lightening System. This revolutionary new combination treatment is a non-hydroquinone containing product line which has been shown to safely and effectively remove brown spots and keep them away. And, unlike many other products that were only suggested for short-term use, Lytera has been proven to be safe for long-term application.
In the past week since it’s release, we have had a tremendous amount of interest just from word of mouth and anticipate that this will continue to grow.
