Pigment Serum Model


Contains 2% Hydroquinoine, 8% Lactic Acid and 2% Citric Acid. These ingredients are the most effective agents available today for treatment of melasma, freckles, brown and age spots (hyperpigmentation), sun damage and acne discolorations of the skin. Recent advances in the technology and research believe that combination of these ingredients (known for their potent bleaching synergy) will give the results that never been obtainable before.

PIGMENT SERUM can be used twice a day to achieve optimal results rapidly. At morning, wash your face with a cleanser. Apply a thin coat of PIGMENT SERUM over the treated area. After 30 minutes, apply an SPF of 15 or greater. Apply cosmetics normally. At night, wash your face. Apply a thin coat of PIGMENT SERUM over area to be treated. If using other products such as tretinoin or alpha hydroxy acid, apply these products first and wait 30 minutes before applying PIGMENT SERUM. The less product you use, the less chance of irritation there is. Many bleaching products are aggressive and it can be hard to combine bleaching products with other products without irritation. The less product you use, the less chance of irritation there is. When using PIGMENT SERUM, you can expect to experience some redness, itching, or flaking, this is most common when treatment is started. When using PIGMENT SERUM, staying out of the sun will prolong the effects of the treatment. Always use sunblock and hat. Exposure to sun deteriorates the hydroquinone, rending it ineffective. When melasma is being treated, it is recommended to keep using PIGMENT SERUM until permission is given from your doctor to quit. Keep PIGMENT SERUM out of the reach of children. In case of accidental ingestion, call a physician or poison control center immediately.

You may see a decrease in pigmentation and an overall improvement in skin tone and clarity within eight weeks. When using PIGMENT SERUM on the hands or chest, visible results may take a little longer because the skin on those areas of the body tends to be more difficult to penetrate. PIGMENT SERUM may changes color from clear to almond with exposure to air. This does not change how well PIGMENT SERUM works.

What is Hydroquinone ?
Hydroquinone is the most popular, and is also the most effective topical hypopigmenting agent. Hydroquinone works by inhibiting the conversion of tyrosine to melanin, inhibiting the formation of melanosomes and increase the degradation to melanosomes, and by inhibiting by inhibiting the DNA and RNA synthesis of melanocytes. As a result, hydroquinone affects only cells with active tyrosinase activity. Active tyrosine's activity is only found in epidermal melanocytes. In dermal melanin, tyrosinase activity is not present; therefore dermal melasma is resistant to hydroquinone. The chemical stability of hydroquinone formulations is important because hydroquinone is easily oxidized and loses potency. Hydroquinone formulation should be kept in no larger than 2 ounce and should be used within 90 days after opening. The lightening effect of hydroquinone can be enhanced by combining it with other agents such as alphahydroxy acids such as lactic acid and citric acid.

Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid, although it is not technically a bleach agent, it has been shown to have lightening properties superior to other alpha hydroxy acid, particularly on melasma conditions. It is also one of the only lightening agents shown to be safe on darker skin. it is also non-irritating and can be used on sensitive skin.

Research shows that Citric Acid to be effective lightning agent that inhibits the production of melanin (brown pigment).

Lentigines (known as age spots) and ephelides (known as freckles) are tan, brown or black spots that appear over time on sun exposed areas of the skin. These spots are common on the backs of the hand, face and legs. Those who tan extensively will also have them over the shoulders, back, chest and other areas of the skin. Lentigines are superficial collections of skin pigment called melanin that have accumulated within the top layer of skin called the epidermis. Ephelides are common in lighter skin who sunburn easily. Lentigines usually appear later in life and may occur in all skin types. Lentigines are caused by prolonged sun exposure or sunburns and appear later in adult life. Ephelides occur even in children after brief periods of sun exposure. Both types of pigmented only rarely occur in non-sun exposed areas. Sun avoidance and the use of good sunscreen protection can help minimize the appearance of both lentigines and ephelides.

Melasma is commonly acquired increase of pigmentation that occurs in sun-exposed areas. Brown in color, it is severed by sun exposure, pregnancy, oral contraceptives, and certain anti-epilepsy drugs. Melasma is usually common, especially in women of childbearing age. However, up to 15% of cases have been reported in males. All races are affected, but there is a prominence among Asians and Latinos. Melasma is more apparent during and after periods of sun exposure and less obvious in winter months, when there is less sun. Melasma presents itself in one of the three usually symmetrical facial patterns. The most common is a Centrofacial pattern, the cheeks, forehead, upper lip, nose, and chin. Less common are the malar pattern, the cheeks and nose, and the mandibuylar pattern, the side of the cheeks and jaw line.

Freckles are common amongst a lot of people. Some patients have a variety known as "sunburn freckles" or ephelides. These are larger and darker than standard freckles that are brown color. The edges are irregular, but the pigment is even throughout the lesion. Sun-induced freckles are associated with non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers.

Melasma has been considered to originate from pregnancy, oral contraceptives, endocrine dysfunction, genetic factors, medications, nutritional deficiency, hepatic dysfunction, and other factors. More cases appear to be related to pregnancy and oral contraceptives. The infrequency of melasma in postmenopausal women on estrogen replacement recommends that estrogen alone is not the cause. In more recent experience, combination treatment using estrogen plus progestational agents is being used in postmenopausal women, and melasma is being observed in some of these older women who did not have melasma during their pregnancies. Sun exposure is appear to be a stimulating factor in the predisposed individuals.

PIGMENT SERUM is a safe and effective way of treating pigmentation. High quality and effective ingredients have been carefully blended and specially formulated with essential lightning agents which have been proven to fade freckles, age spots, and melasma (mask of pregnancy) and is equally effective for pimples and scars.
