Diagnostic Skincare

Let’s talk melanin. The wondrous pigments our bodies produce, which give us our skin, hair and eye color.

The following is quite a bit of information and takes about five minutes to read. Thank you, in advance, for taking the time!

Melanin is a broad term for a group of natural pigments found in most organisms. Melanin is produced by cells called melanocytes. Melanin provides some protection against skin damage from the sun, as the melanocytes increase their production of melanin in response to sun exposure.

  1. The first thing to know is that pigmented skin absorbs about 30 to 40% more sunlight than lightly pigmented skin.
  2. Highly pigmented skin is better able to fight photo-damage. Photo-damage is a leading cause of the signs of aging.
  3. Tanning is the skin’s response to ultraviolet [UV] light exposure. The light spectrum is made up of three UV types: UVA, UVB, UVC. Most UVC is absorbed by our earth’s ozone layer and does not make it to earth. UVB is known as UV/Burning. UVA wavelengths are longer than UVB and penetrate the skin more deeply and do not cause sunburn. Both UVA and UVB cause skin cancer with prolonged exposure.
  4. The ability of melanocytes to produce melanin degrades as we age. We know this because our hair turns grey, and our skin and eye color becomes less intense. If you are in your 40’s and find you sunburn more easily, it’s because your skin can no longer produce pigmentation at a quick enough pace to fight UV radiation.
  5. As we age our melanocytes wear out at different rates. Some continue to overproduce, which we often refer to as age spots. It is this imbalance that creates uneven skin tone and signs of aging.

So how do we develop skin care products around melanin?

  1. We crafted our Diagnostic regimens to address the fundamental differences – and similarities – between clients with low melanin and clients with moderate to high levels melanin.
  2. Our Diagnostic Level Types refer to the Fitzpatrick scale, a dermatological assessment tool that codifies skin types from Level 1 up to Level 6. Fitzpatrick Level 1 skin types have very low melanin or pale skin. The scale graduates up Level 6, where pigmentation is plentiful and skin deeply toned.
  3. Pigmented skin generally has the highest levels sebum. Sebum is oil, which is secreted to keep our skin hydrated. However, highly pigmented skin also tends to have the lowest ceramide levels. Thus highly pigmented skin is more susceptible becoming dry, irritated, flaky.
  4. Low pigmented skin is more susceptible to the oxidative effect of the sun, and UV radiation including sunburns. As a result skin with low pigmentation tends to show the signs of aging earlier than highly pigmented skin.
