This is a common combination. The age spots are smaller and will respond much faster. Melasma can come from a number of different medications but primarily birth control.
Smaller spots on the face, or freckles worsened by the sun, are caused by free radical damage at the base of your skin barrier, also called the dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ). Age spots occur because the skin inflammation triggers a protective response of melanin(brown). If you use skin lighteners alone for this, you will be committing to a lifetime of frustration. Osmosis has patented ingredients to address this issue in a more permanent fashion than commonly prescribed lightening products by targeting the source of age spots.
Melasma in multiple zones is the result of liver damage from birth control, hormone medications or pregnancy after age 30. Each hormone affects a different part of the face; the forehead is from Progesterone, the cheeks are from Estrogen and around the mouth is primarily from Testosterone. Our protocols are designed to assist the liver in repairing the damage which results in the brown pigment normalizing over time.
Melasma starts as redness in the skin from what research calls dermal inflammation. When exposed to significant sunlight the skin protects the red spots with melanin resulting in large brown spots on the face. To resolve this permanently you need to heal the liver damage otherwise it requires a lifetime of using skin lighteners.
Accelerates repair of free radical damage to the liver. This is less effective if you remain on the melasma-inducing medication.
