How to Treat Hyperpigmentation in 2 Weeks

Posted in: Hyperpigmentation


Can you improve dark spots in 2 weeks? An estimated 45-50 million women worldwide live with excess pigment on their skin, otherwise known as hyperpigmentation.  Pigmentation concerns affect millions of people in the U.S. and around the world and can be caused by UV damage, hormonal changes, or even past acne. Let’s break down what causes excess pigmentation and how to treat hyperpigmentation.

When it comes to hyperpigmentation, always remember this: UV rays fuel discoloration. When the skin is exposed to the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, it triggers melanin production. Melanin gives your skin its natural color, but sometimes it can distribute unevenly creating dark spots on your face or other areas of skin. Even if it is distributing evenly as a tan, that’s still a sign of injury to the skin. In fact, the dark spots and discoloration you see today could have started to form decades ago, when you tanned in your youth. Read about more hyperpigmentation causes here and here.

Hyperpigmentation can be a frustrating skin concern to target. It’s important to target hyperpigmentation daily with professional formulas designed specifically to lighten pigmented spots and even overall skin tone. The good news is that fast results can be achieved in just two weeks! Here are some guidelines to help ensure maximum results in no time, flat.

How to Treat Hyperpigmentation

1) Exfoliate with Quick Refiner every night: This is the first step to speed up cell turnover and remove the damaged, overly pigmented and dead skin cells. This will also help your skin to absorb the key ingredients of the brightening products much better.

2) Target the dark spots: Target the pigment with LightPlex GigaWatt Dark Spot Corrector. The scientifically tested formula is designed to pinpoint and obliterate stubborn age spots, discoloration, UV damage, and signs of past acne.

3) Protect with broad spectrum sunscreen: Never skip the sunscreen, even if it’s cloudy or winter. Remember that any exposure to UV will make acne spots darker and more difficult to treat. Even when using brightening products, the spots will come right back unless you are diligent with the sunscreen during daylight hours.
