美白コースケア:気になる治療メニュー
Skin Brightening Care Set: What's in the menu



Before summer's scorching UV worsens your skin unevenness or discoloration, think about treating them with the complete Skin Brightening Care Set.

This set, in short, is the combination of the latest skin brightening devices and latest bleaching formulas.

Bleachers or brightening cremes alone usually takes months or maybe years to see a satisfactory effect.
Especially pigment spots which are untreated for over 5 or 10 years usually disperse their melanin pigment down deeper to lower skin layer (dermis), the condition that makes them difficult to reach with conventional remedies and mostly requires conjucntin treatment of the device and medication.

Brightening device alone may show immediate effect but is sometimes powerful enough to cause some unwanted adverse effect such as recurrent pigmentation(usually temporary) which consequently needs the help of brightening medication.

On the other hand, pigment lesions that only react to bleachers also do exist.

An inclusive care for brightening skin consists of the following treatment menu which details of each treatment are respectively explained:


1.Skin Brightening IV Drip      Glutathione IV Drip is the center of attention now in the world of skin complexion treatment.


Quite famous among celebrities,
and also well-known about its effectiveness on
whole body brightening treatment.
Improving or supporting liver function
is also the effect of this remedy.
The so-called detox effect is one of the effects that users expect from this solution.

Glutathione is a peptide that consists of 3 amino acids: glutamic acid, cystine and glycine.
It shows high performance as an antioxidant that fights against free radicals
that the sun UV produces to damage human skin.

2.Electrophoresis/Ultrasonic massage      Electrophoresis/ultrasonic massage therapy are remedies to intensify penetration of brightening solutions into skin.

3.Chemical Peeling      Chemical peeling is a treatment that uses weak acid to melt and peel keratin layer over the epidermis, which cleans pores and revive sskin thightness, and also consequently helps brightening the skin by the reason stated below.
skin turnover
Keratin layer peeling allowed brightening devices to work better with the thinned skin, but besides this more importantly is that peeling helps the turnover of the epidermis to shorten it into 2 weeks instead of 1 month for facial skin, allowing the melanin pigments to rise higher from the base , making topical bleacher medication work effectively.

Chemicals used are as follows:

Glycolic acid is mainly used as an outpatient procedure, which has also names as AHA or fruit acid..
Wider area such as whole face is the usual treatnent part, and might cause irritation sometimes which is the reason why it is not recommendable for home therapy.


Tretinoin creme
is good for home care , and should be used mainly partially, usually prescribed for melasma use.

4.Treatment with Bleachers    Devices such as lasers and IPL are for clinical procedures, while brightening medications are designed for home care therapy.

Topical bleachers include hydroquinone whiich starts from5% through10%.
If hydroquinone shows abnormal reaction, tranexamic acid or kojic acid cremes are the alternatives.

The latest Lumixyl is also a good choice which is said to be more effective that hydroquinone with less side effect.

Also available are the highly- concentrated and highly-permeablevitamin C & Elotions which are capable of upgrading evenness of the skin tone and also good humidifiers.

As Oral medication, prescription of transamenic acid. vitamin C, and vitamin E is a routine.
Transamenic acid suppresses production of melanin while minimizing redness of the treatment healing process.
Then, vitamin C 's melanin suppression and vitamin E's antiaging capability are needless to explain.

Brightening skin from the outside and inside is the aim of medication therapy.

Bleacher is mainly used as an adjunct treatment for finer and lighter melanin lesions spared from laser and IPL treatment, also for the side effects of stronger devices.
However, a lesion that needs mainly bleacher medication is the melanin pigment issue called melasma.

Melasma is a common word well-known throughout Japan nowadays, thanks to the TV ad of transameic acid oral med. Even how infamous the spot is laser treatment is not effective and mostly worsen it, making bleachers the only remedy available.
Laser for melasma was once hailed as an outrageous invention, but ended in vain because of its incompetency to cure.

Bleacher is associated usually with chemical peeling procedures which are already mentioned above in order to obtain multiplied effect.


5.Intense Pulsed Light(IPL) Treatment     IPL treatment was first introduced to the public around 20 years ago and still to this very day is very popular to those who aim for more even complexion or for maintaining their perfect skin.
IPL reaching the shallow dermis layer
IPL contains several kinds of lights with several kinds of wavelength but excludes lights that are harnmful to the skin such as the UV.

IPL treats melanin pigment lesions such as senile lentigo(regular sunspot) or freckles and also vascular lesions as ruddy face.

Treatment or prevention of acne are also good targets of IPL, and skin tightening is also one of the expected benefits.

These tremendous abilities of the IPL might give you the idea that it should be an almighty machine, but, actually, IPL can only reach the shallow layer(dermis) of the skin, meaning not as powerful as laser that can go deeper.
However, since it only treats the surface, side effect is minimal if there is, and it treats wider skin surface (while laser treats partially) without any limitation on face washing because no longer downtime is necessary.

IPL treatment evolved into many brands in this 20-year period, and Photofacial is the first brand, maybe the most familiar one.
Relatively high in power and very effective is the brand called BBL(Broad Band Light).

BBL has broader spectrum of effective lights, attached are the 7 filters that make more detailed settings possible, treating not only melanin pigment spots but to the extent of wider finer treatment of skin redness and tightening.

6.Laser Treatment   Pigment lesions that cannot be beaten out with IPL need more powerful single-wavelength laser.

Among many types of laser devices, Q-switched laser has the most demand.
Q-switched refers to a laser technology that creates a high-energy laser beam, and the laser that uses this technique is called Q-switched laser which is usually effective for melanin lesions such as senile lentigo(regular sunspots)freckles, and birthmarks, and also useful for tattoo removal and laser peeling.

The next most-used one is the vaporizing laser.
Vaporizing laser emits high-energy beam that targets water in the tissue resulting in iinstant tissue evaporation, letting the target lesion removed.
The mostly used evaporizing lasers are the erbium laser and the CO₂ laser.

Usual targets are benign tumors such as moleskeratosis(warts)、and acrochordons(skin tags)/syringomas/miliums/sebaceous hyperplasia.

Vascular lesion laser is also available.

Redness from capillaries are good with IPL, but blood vessels noticeable to naked eyes are good candidates for vascular laser.

While IPL has less downtime, laser treatment is powerful enough which needs 1 week of recovery time, sometimes weeks or months for temporary side effects.

If temporary adverse results appear in laser treatment, bleachers stated above are needed to support the wanted effect.
