One of the most common skin concerns we hear from patients at Neu Look Med Spa is that they have uneven or dull looking skin. Years of sun exposure, hormonal imbalances, and stress can cause sun spots, dark brown patches, and a lackluster complexion. Thankfully there are some powerful skin treatments that can help this issue.

One ingredient that is used for brightening the skin is Kojic Acid. According to Wikipedia “It originated in Japan and is a chelation agent that is produced by different species of fungi. In particular the Aspergillus oryzae, which is commonly called koji. The chemical compound in kojic acid soap and facial cream penetrates deep within the cellular layer of skin which keeps dark pigmentation from forming. It does that by hindering the production of melanin. Melanin is the pigment that gives your skin its color”. Gita Izadi NP recommends using a product like our Re- Brightalyze Pads that contain Kojic Acid twice a day, morning and night to get the best results. After cleansing, gently swipe your whole face with the pad and follow with your moisturizer and Sunblock.
Another ingredient that is very powerful against pigmentation is Hydroquinone. Web MD explains “Hydroquinone is used to lighten the dark patches of skin (also called hyperpigmentation, melasma, “liver spots,” “age spots,” freckles) caused by pregnancy, birth control pills, hormone medicine, or injury to the skin”. It is advised due to potential side effects that Hydroquinone be used for 3-4 months. And then if needed can be used again after a 4 month break. During this time patients can still use products containing Kojic Acid, Arbutin, and Retinol to maintain their clear complexion. The Re- Brightalyze Pads can also be customized for each patient to include Hydroquinoine for a more powerful skin brightening treatment. As always Neu Look Med Spa recommends that you consult with your nurse practitioner to find out what is the best product for you.
