My product pick of the month is Lytera 2.0 by SkinMedica. This advanced formulation of pigment correcting serum can help you “get even with skin discoloration”. Millions of people around the world complain of problems with hyperpigmentation, skin discoloration, dark spots, or melasma. All of these skin concerns are caused by an excess of melanin in the skin, caused by many different factors. Lytera 2.0 works by utilizing a proprietary blend of powerful ingredients that help correct the pathways through which melanin reaches the top layers of the skin. It not only helps to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, but also helps to prevent future discoloration. Unfortunately for many people, this can be a chronic condition that requires continued treatment, even once you get the hyperpigmentation under control.
Lytera 2.0 is formulated for all skin types. SkinMedica did extensive research with over 200 patients in 3 different countries. These studies showed Lytera 2.0 to be effective in multiple ethnicities and skin types, with significant reductions in the appearance of discoloration in as early as 4 weeks. Many of the hyperpigmentation products on the market contain hydroquinone and/or retinol, but Lytera 2.0 contains neither. This makes it good for even sensitive skin. It is a lightweight fragrance-free, paraben-free and non-comedogenic serum that you apply morning and night for best results.
I am very impressed with this product. It has proven to be a favorite of both patients and staff. For some patients, combining Lytera 2.0 with either chemical peels or laser services can really help get a jump start on those stubborn areas of discoloration. There is also a Lytera 2.0 kit that includes an entire regimen of products designed to help with evening the skin tone. It contains the Lytera 2.0 Serum, the AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, the AHA/BHA Cream, the Rejuvenative Moisturizer, the Retinol .5 Complex and the Total Defense and Repair SPF 34 Sunscreen. These are all full-size products packaged in an amazing bag at a great price. You can’t go wrong with either choice!
