How are blemishes formed?

There are many different types of skin blemishes.  When talking about skin lightening treatments, we are talking only about blemishes caused by the accumulation of melanin on the facial skin.  Melanin is the pigment that gives the skin its color. Dark-skinned individuals have more melanin in their skin than light-skinned individuals. Hyperpigmentation refers to situations in which the skin produces too much melanin. As a result, dark spots or patches appear on the skin.  Hyperpigmentation is a very common skin condition and it affects people of all skin types- from very fair skin to very dark skin.

One of the major causes of hyperpigmentation is overexposure to sunlight. In such situations, the melanin in the skin absorbs the sun’s harmful UV rays in order to protect the skin from overexposure.  As a result, blemishes are formed, and existing freckles and other darkened skin areas become even darker.

Another cause of hyperpigmentation is hormonal changes.  During puberty and pregnancy when the body experiences large hormonal changes, hyperpigmentation spots can form.  The spots can also form as a result of hormone changing medications such as birth control.  These spots are usually known as Melasma spots and are larger than spots caused by sun damage.  They appear as blotchy patches on the face, usually on the cheeks, nose and forehead.

Hyperpigmentation can also form if the skin is injured.  For example, following cuts or burns, the skin is inflamed, and darker skin can form in the area.  Similarly, acne scars can form dark spots on the skin’s surface.

Fortunately, there are a variety of skin lightening facial treatments that reverse damage caused by hyperpigmentation and restore the skin to its natural skin color. The treatments usually include vitamin C, Retinol, Arbutin or Kojic Acid (Hydroquinone was once a favorite but now it is banned in many countries).

The NowMi treatment for skin lightening

The NowMi vitamin C oxygen facial treatment is a highly effective skin lightening facial that enables you to safely and effectively lighten your skin.  The 4-in-1 treatment performs 4 actions simultaneously- skin exfoliation, nourishment, oxygenation and protection.

During the skin exfoliation stage, the outermost layer of the skin is gently removed.  This layer includes dead skin cells, dirt and oil as well as darkened skin cells.  As a result, the level of hyperpigmentation is reduced.
Simultaneously, the facial skin is infused with vitamin C, vitamin E and Hyaluronic acid.  Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which plays a critical role in combating hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C helps to inhibit the production of the tyrosinase enzyme – the enzyme responsible for the production of melanin.  It is also known for its ability to lighten pigmentation without affecting the rest of the skin.  

The NowMi vitamin C oxygen facial treatment is unique since it stimulates the skin to ‘oxygenate itself from within’.  This means that the body sends oxygen rich blood cells to the treatment area.  As a result, the vitamin C is optimally absorbed by the skin cells and its effect is maximized.

The protection phase is all about prevention.  Vitamin C is the most prevalent antioxidant in the human skin. However, with age, the level of vitamin C in the skin dramatically reduces and aged skin has 70% less vitamin C compared to young skin. As the concentrations decrease, the skin becomes more vulnerable to sun damage and other extrinsic factors which damage it. The NowMi treatment replenishes the skin’s vitamin C supply which enables protect itself from UV rays and prevent the formation of sun spots.
