Melasma is a type of skin hyperpigmentation common among women between the ages of 20 and 40. It is characterized by tan, brown or grayish patches that appear on the face, cheeks, chin, and forehead. While this condition is harmless, it has a negative effect on self-esteem and quality of life.
What makes melasma different from traditional hyperpigmentation is that it is more difficult to treat. There is only a 50% chance of whether or not it may respond to different topical products and skin treatments. This then adds more frustration to those suffering from the skin condition.
Fortunately, there is a new skin lightening supplement that is proven by clinical studies to treat melasma. Diamond Tomato Rx is a safe dietary supplement developed by Cutis Laser Clinics. With this supplement you can expect:
- Broad spectrum UV protection
- No bleaching or staining of skin
- High whitening efficacy
- Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
What makes Diamond Tomato effective is its formulation of PhytoflORAL® and Tranexamic Acid. Both are known to protect and rejuvenate the skin from within.
What is PhytoflORAL®?
This is a form of natural antioxidant derived from non-chemical processed tomatoes with two types of carotenoids (or plant pigment): phytoene and phytofluene. These are the only colorless carotenoids in nature and can protect the skin from harmful UV rays.
Clinical studies revealed that PhytoflORAL® showed a significant lightening effect among 82% of test subjects. The new data also suggested that this ingredient can considerably increase MED (Minimal Erythemal Dose) after 84 days of usage. This indicates an improvement in the ability of the skin to resist UV damage.
Furthermore, the subjects in the study noticed an overall improvement in their skin, especially in the aspects of evenness, radiance, elasticity, suppleness, smoothness, and hydration. They also reported having a visually healthier skin that is more resistant to sun damage.
What is Tranexamic Acid?
Tranexamic Acid (TXA) is a new addition to the treatment of melasma. This is made from an amino acid called lysine, which was used to treat heavy bleeding. When it comes to treating hyperpigmentation, it is mostly administered at low dosage to be taken at least six to twelve weeks or according to the doctor’s prescription.
A study involving 74 test participants concluded that the oral use of TXA is safe for melasma treatment. This was based on the monitoring done after the volunteers were given a daily dosage for 250 mg for the period of six months.
It is also good to know that another study involving more than 500 patients reported improvement in their melasma after taking oral TXA for four months.
Achieving Radiant and Youthful Skin
With these two clinically-proven ingredients, you can now treat melasma and other types of pigmentation safely and effectively.
