What is a Tyrosinase Inhibiting skin serum and why use one?

Tyrosinase Inhibitors, more commonly known as Fade or Pigmentation Serums work by inhibiting or sedating the production of melanin which causes dark spots on your skin.

It is important to protect our skin cells from being damaged resulting in uneven skin tone and unsightly dark spots with a physical SPF and other skincare products that contain Tyrosinase Inhibiting ingredients.

Adding this product to your skincare routine will prevent the enzyme Tyrosinase from an oxidative process producing Tyrosine, therefore limiting overproduction of pigment in the skin. Tyrosinase Inhibitors are for both patients who have Hyperpigmentation issues and those that have healthy, even coloured skin tone.

Prevention and safeguarding against hyperpigmentation is key…

Often hyperpigmentation is lying just underneath the skin surface and will get darker as we age. By using a Tyrosinase Inhibitor it will help protect your skin and prevent you from forming hyperpigmentation later in life.

Tyrosinase Inhibitors will correct hyperpigmentation and prevent it from forming and requires continued use as our skin has a memory. Once our skin has been damaged hyperpigmentation can come back, especially when the skin cells are left unprotected.

Tyrosinase Inhibitors must also be used to prepare the skin before treatment, especially before skin lightening peels to protect against post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and to effectively block the pigmentation being treated. When used in combination with in clinic peel treatments, hyperpigmentation can be effectively faded to reveal an even skin tone.
