WHAT CAUSES HYPERPIGMENTATION?
1. SUN EXPOSURE
We all know that sun exposure accelerates our ageing process, what you may not realize is that adding sun exposure to already existing darker spots, such as acne scars or melasma, would increase the darkening of the scar further, making it more difficult to lighten the discoloured patches.
2. HORMONE CHANGES
Melasma, another common hyperpigmentation symptom, is thought to occur the most common during a woman's change in hormones. That includes pregnancy, menopause, contraception, or when intaking hormone-altering drugs.
3. SKIN INFLAMMATION
Acne, eczema, cuts and burns are perhaps some of the most common causes of hyperpigmentation. The curing process of these injuries of inflammation naturally results in a period of uneven skin tone that may take up to years to diminish.

UniTone Neuro Therapy is intended to fight against discoloration of different origins: post-inflammatory, hormonal, post-sun and vascular discoloration. This is an innovative approach towards brightening discoloration and changing the colour through the effect on factors and receptors responsible for melanogenesis.
- ß-White™ – a biomimetic peptide with high activity to reduce the stimulation of melanocytes and properties of melanosomes. It also influences the MITF factor responsible for the production of genetically programmed pigment.
- Tranexamic acid - to prevent the activation of melanocytes through inhibition of the plasminogen activation system. Also reduces erythema and has anti-inflammatory properties that are safe for sensitive skin.
- Niacinamide - inhibits the transport of melanin to keratinocytes, has anti-free-radical and anti-inflammatory properties as well as prevents the appearance of post-sun and post-inflammatory discoloration.
Including a UniTone Neuro Cream 50ml and UniTone Forte-C Elixir 20ml, this special set provides a simple daily skincare routine to support the whitening and brightening of discoloured skin as well as to prevent discoloration.
