Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition in which some areas of the skin become darker in colour than the surrounding skin. Hyperpigmentation occurs when an excess of melanin is produced by melanocytes, the pigment cells, which are moved up to the skin’s surface.
Hyperpigmentation can be caused by inflammation, hormonal stress, sun damage, or other skin injuries. People with darker skin tones are more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially with excess sun exposure.
Cysteamine cream is a highly effective skin pigmentation cream used to remove brown spots, reduce pigmentation marks and treat melasma, leaving a natural light skin complexion. Its key active ingredient is cysteamine, which is found naturally in human cells and reduces melanin in the skin epidermis.
Proven to be more effective than hydroquinone, Cyspera is applied to the skin every evening on uncleansed skin for 15 minutes and is the only skin pigment corrector containing cysteamine currently available.
