This is Step 2 of a skin lightening treatment for clinical use developed by Dermica Laboratoires Europe. It is a skin whitening formula for application via AMTS (GoldPen), with a slightly acidic pH of around 4.5.This type of treatment has a depigmenting effect, inhibiting the action of tyrosinase, an enzyme involved in the synthesis of melanin, or melanogenesis. Its active ingredients reduce hyperpigmentation, brightening and normalising skin tone.
Suitable for use on skin with dark spots, melasma and hyperpigmentation. Not suitable for very dark skin, Fitzpatrick types V and VI. Whitelan provides a newer, brighter complexion, helping regenerate and soften the skin while reducing wrinkles. Treats all kinds of dark spots. Reduces excess melanin production (hyperpigmentation) responsible for the appearance of melasma, chloasma and solar lentigines.
Melasma: General term used to describe discoloured skin patches or spots.
Chloasma: Generally refers to skin discolouration caused by hormonal changes normally occurring during pregnancy, the use of contraceptive pills or oestrogen replacement therapy.
Solar Lentigines: Technical name for skin spots or patches caused by exposure to the sun. This type of skin discolouration is very common in adults with a history of unprotected sun exposure.
