One of the best ways to avoid Hyperpigmentation is to firstly limit exposure to the sun and protect your skin from the suns harmful UVA and UVB rays by wearing the appropriate level of sunscreen. Avoiding excessive trauma to the skin, e.g. by using less harsh chemicals in cleaning products can also help limit and manage Melasma.
However, when hyperpigmentation requires treatment, hydroquinone is recommended for treating age spots, dark spots and melasma, and is a key ingredient in Obagi’s Nu-Derm System.
This treatment includes an award-winning medical skincare range that is prescribed to the individual based on their concerns. The regime has to be used for 12-24 weeks and regular check ups with the skin scanmer are included every 6 weeks. The Nu-Derm System uses prescription-strength products to penetrate below the surface of your skin in order to transform skin cell functions at cellular level and correct damage. This gives fantastic results on reducing pigmentation, exfoliating old skin and leaving healthy, new skin that looks and acts younger and healthier.*
