Target unwanted pigmentation with the Ultra Brightening System

For hyperpigmentation, age spots and blotchiness, you can’t go past Ultra’s multi-award winning Brightening System which helps combat the appearance of hyperpigmentation like never before. It’s formulated with a unique complex of proven skin brighteners and exfoliants to give the skin ultimate luminosity and radiance.

Hyperpigmentation & Age Spots
The term ‘pigmentation’ refers to the skin's natural colour irrespective of any sun exposure. This natural colouring is associated with cells within the skin known as melanocytes. The melanocytes primary function is to produce pigments referred to as ‘melanins’ which provide natural protection against ultraviolet (UV) rays emitted by the sun. Dark spots, skin discolouration, blotchiness, ephelides (freckles) and melasma are all common skin concerns known as ‘hyperpigmentation’. Hyperpigmentation is the over production of melanin resulting in skin darkening. Often this excessive melanin production clusters in localised areas in a disorderly fashion forming patchy skin tones or “dark spots”.

What’s the solution?
Hyperpigmentation has a reputation of being difficult to treat. That’s why it helps to have professional advice and a number of different approaches. A detailed skin analysis by our expert skin specialists is a great place to start.
