Fly and be free of troublesome darkspots!

Fly and be free of troublesome darkspots!

Hello all!  Sorry that I haven’t written in awhile, but I have been so busy working to bring you new technologies and products from around the world that I haven’t had time to tell you about them!!  One product that has been flying off of my shelves as fast as I can restock it is a skin lightening cream called Lumixyl.  Everyone is familiar with the good old fashioned lightening creams available over the counter at the local drugstore.  These creams contain a mild concentration of a drug called hydroquinone.  Prescription strengths of hydroquinone are also available, but here’s the rub—hydroquinone is imperfect and has side effects!  Some people with a bluish undertone to their skin find that their dark spots become even darker after using the lightening agent hydroquinone.  There has been some talk in the European Union about banning hydroquinones because some data suggest that it could cause pre-cancerous changes in freckles.  However,  these studies are inconclusive and hydroquinone remains available in the United States (for now).

Enter Lumixyl!!  Discovered by researchers at Stanford University, Lumixyl is a non-toxic, non-irritating peptide of naturally occurring amino acids that targets discoloration and dark spots on the surface of the skin.  Lumixyl works by inhibiting the enzyme responsible for the production of melanin in the skin.  Lumixyl is 40% more effective at lightening these dark spots than hydroquinone!  Lumixyl brings results with none of the risks of hydroquinone.  Study subjects comparing the prescription medication TriLuma ($300/tube- contains irritating Retin A, 4% Hydroquinone, and a skin-thinning steroid) versus Lumixyl ($120/tube- completely safe, practically edible) showed patients with persistent melasma responded to the Lumixyl cream!  Continued use will give you brighter, more luminous skin.  Buy it, try it, love it!  Call the office at 212-799-1411 to reserve your Lumixyl before the shelves are bare again!

Stay tuned to hear more about my new skincare line from Australia!!

Have a Beautiful Day!

Dr. Lisa
