Melasma & Cyspera
Melasma is a very common skin condition that effects about 200,00 people yearly. Women mostly suffer from melasma but 10% of men can have melasma as well. Although we aren’t 100% sure what causes melasma, we do know that most cases are caused during pregnancy, breastfeeding or while taking birth control. A spike of estrogen is the main cause of the over production of pigment, commonly referred to as “pregnancy mask”
There are many treatments that are safe to perform on melasma, to help control the pigment but also to help treat other skin issues such as acne or scarring. Avoiding “heat” based treatments such as lasers is always a safe practice. We know heat and light can be a trigger for melasma. Treating the skin with chemical peels, microneedling, HydraFacials and active at home products that control pigment are all safe options!
Treating pigment, no matter the cause ie: sun exposure, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, age spots and melasma can be tricky and most be a low and slow approach. Monthly in-office treatments paired with a at-home skin regimen is the fastest and most effective way to treat.
At Allure Infinite Beauty we are always striving to offer the state-of-the-art treatments and most efficacious products to offer our guests. Since some of our very own staff members suffer from Melasma we are always on the hunt for the best options! We truly believe we found the Holy Grail of pigment correcting products, which is why we ae the first in Arizona to offer Cyspera.
Cyspera is a 3-step at-home treatment, that’s quick and easy to use, but more importantly it works beautifully on piment QUICKLY! Not only will you start to see a diminishing of your pigment within a few weeks but you will start to see hydrated, youthful glowing skin, and who doesn’t love that???
Disclaimer: Melasma is a skin condition with no cure. So, you will always be “controlling” your melasma. Everyone may have a different trigger ex:heat, alcohol, stress, sun exposure, hormone replacements are a few common triggers. You will need to find yours; you will see a flair up of pigment that may start to relax after a few days or weeks. Once you know your trigger Melasma is easier to control, avoid your triggers, avoid your flair ups. Cyspera will help control flair ups, so when and if they do happen, they won’t be as bad or last as long as they have in the past.
So how does it work? Cyspera Is applied to “dirty” skin, in other words don’t wash your face before using. Let step one sit for 15 minutes, wash off with step 2 neutralizer, then add step 3 and any other serums you already have in your routine. Finish with a physical sunscreen and that’s it! For best results use daily for 16 weeks, or when desired results are achieved, then you will use 1-3 times a week to maintain results and to keep flair ups at bay!
