How it works

Series of treatments
Technology: Micro needling

Sun spots are superficial spots that develop in the top layer of the skin as a result of excess melanin – the pigment that determines skin color.

Melanin is responsible, among other things, for defending the skin’s cells against sunlight. Exposure to UV rays promotes increased synthesis of Melanin, which ideally would lead to a uniform tanning of the skin, but mostly causes hyperpigmentation in various body parts, most commonly the face, décolletage and hands.

Exposureto sunlight often leads to excess synthesisof melanin that accrues in one spot and migrates under the outer layer of the skin, causing a hyperpigmentation spot.

There are several types of hyperpigmentation, including melasma (sometimes referred to as “mask of pregnancy”). Melasma is most common in young women, and is associated with hormonal imbalance or use of contraceptives.

Melasma spots are wide and symmetrical and most often appear on the face, cheeks, central part of the forehead and above the upper lip. Despite their similarities, sun spots are fundamentally different from age spots, found in the deeper layers of the skin, and therefore require longer treatments over longer periods of time to remove.

We, at Individuel combine professional treatment in the clinic with home care to lighten and remove spots.

Our treatment infusing brightening ingredients deeply into the skin using micro-needling.

Micro needling

Micro-needling is a treatment that uses repeated puncturing of the skin using tiny needles that pierce the skin but don’t go through it. During this procedure we insert into the canals formed by the needles specialized quality ingredients that brighten the skin and prevent migration of melanin, to restore the skin and stimulate creation of missing collagen and elastin fibers.

The ingredients

The ingredients are prepared by expert pharmacists working in close cooperation with us. They slow down the rate of melanin synthesis, prevent darkening of melanin as a result of exposure to sunlight, and inhibit its migration to the outer layer of the skin.

They contain 6 skin whitening antioxidants and 14 other active ingredients extracted from plants, clinically proven to be effective in brightening pigmentation spots, such as Tetra Pure (extracted from Turemeric) and O.D.A White (extracted from olive oil). They also contain hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and more.

After the process

Following the needling process, the body begins a process of self healing whereby it produces collagen that contributes to the growth of new, spot-free tissue and makes the entire face appear younger. To augment and maintain the results obtained with micro-needling, treatments are to be complemented at home in between treatments at the clinic.

At Individuel, we combine professional clinic-based treatments with home care to lighten and remove spots – the outcome is less hyperpigmentation on the skin, as well as a more uniform, moistureenriched, glowing and younger looking skin. For this purpose, our clients receive a skin brightening kit intended for daily use, containing Absolute Whitening cream – a uniquely innovative formula for whitening hyperpigmentation; Mandelic acid cream, for skin peeling and removing some of the hyper-pigmented cells, enabling better absorption of the brightening cream; and SPF50 sunscreen, which provides the best defense against sunlight and prevents new hyperpigmentation from forming.  Treatment must be repeated 3-4 times with one month between one treatment and the next.
