Hyperpigmentation is not only a prevalent condition; it’s one that can also be particularly stubborn to treat. In fact, both skin care professionals—who lament the challenges of  treating hyperpigmented skin—and clients—who suffer through years of unsuccessful attempts at eliminating it—are challenged by this condition.
Hyperpigmentation affects women and men of all ethnic groups, and features areas of darkened skin. Although it is most common in middle age and beyond, hyperpigmentation can also be seen in much younger clients. Directly caused by either overactive melanocytes, the cells responsible for producing melanin (melanotic hyperpigmentation), or a proliferation of the melanocytes themselves (melanocytotic hyperpigmentation), hyperpigmentation presents no medical threat. However, it can sometimes be a symptom of disease or illness. What’s more, individuals with facial hyperpigmentation may become so concerned with the aesthetic implications of the condition that depression and anxiety may ensue. Thus, the condition deserves serious attention, including a diligent approach to skin analysis coupled with a willingness to apply creative treatment approaches.

Human skin is the largest body organ and undergoing many changes. Therefore, proper skin care is impossible without knowledge of its physiology and function. The skin protects us from harmful substances present in the environment, blocking access to the interior of the body microorganisms.

It is also the main enclosure to prevent escape of water from the body.Dermageniq

Thermoregulatory functions. Under the influence of sunlight on the skin followed by the production of vitamin D, necessary, inter alia, for proper bone growth.

In the structure of the skin can be divided into three main layers. Deepest subcutaneous tissue, connective tissue composed of the right. The next layer is the dermis, most often represented by the fibroblasts responsible for supporting protein synthesis, such as collagen and elastin. These two proteins build an extracellular matrix or network elasticity and holding the skin. The outer part of the skin is the epidermis.
Aging is inevitable and the body’s natural process consisting, inter alia, the reduction of the biological activity of the body, slowing down the processes of regeneration and reducing resistance and response to environmental stress. The skin, due to direct exposure to harmful external environmental factors, aging is usually faster than the other organs of the human body, and the signs of aging are more visible. The aging process of the skin is the result of two mechanisms: intra- and extrinsic. This first type of aging, genetic or otherwise called chronological, it is a natural process dependent on the biological clock. In contrast, extrinsic aging (photoaging, aging caused by sun) is a process caused by external factors, especially sunlight.

Innovative nano technology to relieve delicate skin with capillary problems. A precise delivery of strengthening and constricting walls of blood vessels components reduce the existing redness and prevent developing on new ones. Small size of nano-carriers (millionths of a millimeter) enables the rapid and effective transport of active components where they are most needed – inside the skin.

A deep-penetrating “injection” of vitamins and new generation bio flavonoids helps dramatically reduce skin redness (up to 24%), strengthen the capillary walls, soothe irritations and restore moisture level ( up to 40%).

Results: the strengthening of the vascular walls and a decrease in the osmotic pressure prevents further capillary damage. A visible improvement in the color of the skin can be observed immediately after first treatment.

Needle-Free Mesotherapy & LED Anti-Redness & Couperose Photo Facial at Avora Skin Spa ( Coquitlam) involves deep regeneration and smoothing of the skin. It is an alternative to the classic mesotherapy. The treatment is made with the use of specific microcurrents to let active substances deep into the skin. It’s a revolutionary system that temporarily readjusts the structure of epidermal cells to create new channels (aquaporines) that let active products applied to the epidermis gradually penetrate to the deepest layers of the skin. This process (electroporation) stimulates your skin to enable muscle toning, draining of liquids from intercellular space, and the production of new collagen and elastin.
