For even, radiant skin
MELANIN produced in the skin causes hyperdiscolouration and leads to unattractive, uneven skin tone. Therefore, effective treatment for discolouration should address the production of melanin.
Lumixyl is a topical brightening system that targets a range of skin problems – melisma, post-inflammatory hyperdiscolouration, uneven skin tone, sun spots, age spots, photo damage and dull skin. Developed by scientists at Stanford University, Lumixyl is a skin brightening system that has peptides, which inhibit the production of melanin in the skin.
Given that Lumixyl is non-irritating to the skin, according to aesthetics practitioner Nara Medispa medical director, Dr Nadzri Mokhtar, there are two groups of patients suitable for this treatment. “Some patients are unable to withstand certain treatments like peels or may be allergic to certain compounds such as hydroquinone and kojic acid. Thus, they can use Lumixyl.”
Lumixyl can also be used as aftercare and maintenance for those who have had treatments. “It’s also great for those who have undergone certain procedures such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and would like to maintain the effects of those treatments to prevent further discolouration,” Dr Nadzri adds.
The basic products are simple to use, “Just apply on your face twice daily – once in the morning and once in the evening before applying sunscreen and make-up,” Dr Nadzri says. “Lumixyl has also added another product, Glycopeel20, to its stable. This product is to be applied after the topical brightening cream for maximum results.”
Glypopeel20 has a concentration of 20% glycolic acid, which aids in exfoliating dead skin and dark spots while promoting cell renewal for brighter and fairer skin. According to clinical studies done at Stanford University, patients can notice visible lightening of their skin after four to eight weeks of usage. It is also proven to be more effective in reducing melanin compared with hydroquinone, which is found in other products, but has more side effects on melanocytes.
“Lumixyl is safer by comparison and also more effective in inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme responsible for the increase in discolouration,” says Dr Nadzri.
Dr Nadzri has been using Lumixyl in his practice for over a year and has found that the products are gentle, safe for all skin types and do not cause inflammation. It was Lumixyl’s impressive safety profile that convinced him to choose it over other products for his patients.
“I wouldn’t want my patients to have hyperdiscolouration or burns due to injudicious use of hydroquinone or tretinoin acidbased products,” he says, before disclosing that he uses Lumixyl himself.
“My patients are happy with Lumixyl and have become repeat customers. I personally would buy the new topical brighten- ing set which has the Active Prep Cleanser, Brightening Cream, Glycopeel20 and Moisture Lock Sunscreen that comes with a reasonable and attractive price tag,” Dr Nadzri says.
