Melanin is a colored pigment that our skin produces, similar to natural sunscreen, to protect us against UVs. The skin cells responsible for producing melanin are called melanocytes. Melanocytes are influenced by a variety of factors, some of which are external (e.g. sun or UV damage) and some that are internal (e.g. hormone imbalances, inflammation, etc.).

Sometimes melanin production can increase temporarily but sometimes these color changes become permanent. These are called lentigines, or more commonly known as sun spots or age spots, and occur most frequently on the face, décolleté, and back of hands. Sometimes acne spots or scars can also result in darker spots as some melanin pigment can become trapped in the scar tissue.

Some brown spots or other pigmentation issues are more treatable than others – Book your complimentary skin consultation to determine which treatment modalities are recommended for your particular situation.

The combination of these ingredients provides multi-functional properties never seen before in a lightening treatment:

  • LIGHTENING: The Whitonyl ™ is a very powerful natural lightening active ingredient. This red algae extract (Palmaria Palmata) re-balances all stages of pigmentation safely and effectively. While respecting the integrity of the skin, this non-toxic active ingredient does not cause any damage to skin cells. Because it is non-irritating, it is also very well tolerated by even the most sensitive skin. In reducing melanin production, clinical results have shown the high efficiency of the Whitonyl™ compared to kojic acid. 
  • REGENERATING: Argan Oil stimulates both the renewal and the regeneration of the cell, thus, it promotes the removal of dead pigmented cells and encourages the creation of new healthy non-pigmented ones.
  • SOOTHING: Allantoin+Bisabolol provides an anti-inflammatory and healing effect on scars and local inflammation to:
    • Block the inflammatory molecules stimulating local production of melanin (acne scars, wounds etc.).
    • Reduce surface redness for a more even complexion.
  • MOISTURE: Polysaccharides associated with Argon Oil rebuild the protective skin barrier and forms a non-occlusive film at the surface of the skin in order to maintain hydration throughout the day.

The Nelly De Vuyst® Radiance Cream can be used in two different ways:

  • AS A DAY AND NIGHT CREAM: uniformly applied over the entire face, the Nelly De Vuyst® Radiance Cream corrects spots related to an overall pigment imbalance on the face, neck and décolleté.
  • SERUM: applied locally, the Nelly De Vuyst® Radiance Cream treats specific pigmented areas. Ideal for the prevention and treatment of acne scars pigmentation
