Hello beautiful lady! 😍

It was such a pleasure meeting you yestarday! I have created your skin care program designed to address all your skin care concerns and include follow-up skincare that is tailored to your skin and its unique behavior. I am so excited to work with you and see all the transformation of your skin.

What Causes Melasma?

There are two main causes of melasma: radiation, whether ultraviolet, visible light, or infrared (heat) light; and hormones.

Ultraviolet and infrared radiation from the sun are key in making melasma worse. Other possible causes of melasma include:

  1. Antiseizure medications: Drugs that prevent you from having seizures may be a cause of melasma. An example of an antiseizure medication is Clobazam (Onfi®).
  2. Contraceptive therapy (birth control): Melasma has been observed in individuals who use oral contraceptive pills that contain estrogen and progesterone.
  3. Estrogen/Diethylstilbestrol: Diethylstilbestrol is a synthetic (man-made) form of the hormone estrogen. It’s often used in treatments for prostate cancer. Again, there’s a pattern between increased estrogen and melasma.
  4. Genetics: About 33% to 50% of people with melasma have reported that someone else in the family has it. The majority of identical twins both have melasma.
  5. Hypothyroidism : it’s a condition where your thyroid is underactive.7
  6. LED Screens: Melasma may be caused by the LED lights from your television, laptop, cell phone and tablet.
  7. Pregnancy: It is unclear why “the mask of pregnancy” happens to pregnant women. However, experts theorize that the increased levels of estrogen, progesterone and the melanocyte-stimulating hormones during the third trimester of pregnancy play a role.
  8. Hormones: Hormones like estrogen and progesterone may play a role in some people. Postmenopausal women are sometimes given progesterone, and have been observed developing melasma. If you aren’t pregnant, you likely have elevated levels of estrogen receptors found in your melasma lesions.
  9. Makeup (cosmetics): Some cosmetics can cause what’s called a phototoxic reaction.
  10. Phototoxic drugs (medicines that make you sensitive to sunlight): These include some antibiotics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), diuretics, retinoids, hypoglycaemics, antipsychotics, targeted therapies and some other drugs

Is There a Cure for Melasma?

Melasma is hard to treat.

Depending on the person, melasma may go away on its own, it may be permanent, or it may respond to treatment within a few months. Most cases of melasma will fade away with time and especially with good protection from sunlight and other sources of light. Unfortunately, there is no definitive treatment that will automatically make melasma disappear. At this time there is no way to remove dermal pigment.

  • Recommend it if you have melasma, be sure to avoid if you can. I also understand at the same time we can’t avoid all that.
  • Hormone treatments, specifically ones that involve estrogen.
  • Birth control, specifically oral contraceptive pills that contain estrogen and progesterone.
  • LED light from your television, laptop, cell phone and tablet.
  • Medications that may cause or worsen melasma.

Here’s the info about supplements: $64


The DMK EFA+ supplements are a powerful group of essential fatty acids 3,6,7 and 9, derived from evening primrose and sea buckthorn oils and are required for the healthy structure of all membranes within the body.


These supplements contain 190 nutrients and bioactive substances all sourced from plant-based ingredients which “waterproof” the skin. These supplements repair and maintain the acid mantle of the skin and keep the barrier of the skin impermeable whilst increasing free water levels within the skin for hydration, which keeps the skin plump and smooth.


DMK EFA+ only uses the purest raw materials that are compounded in the USA with their FDA registered lab. They are designed for a wide variety of skin conditions to repair the cell membranes, reduce inflammation and help to rebuild stronger, healthier, and better functioning skin.


DMK EFA+ are formulated to aid in the improvement of the skin’s barrier function and heavily decrease transepidermal water loss. They are particularly beneficial and necessary for dry and dehydrated skin, acne, congested, inflamed or reactive skin, rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, tissue repair, joint pain, strengthening hair and nails, pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and ageing complexions.

Hyperpigmentation can be caused by sun damage, medication and stress amongst other things.

The Radiance Reveal Facial can target these stubborn patches whilst lightening and brightening the overall complexion in general.

Jane Iredale Skin Ultimate $160:

Skin Ultimate is a nutritional supplement that unites Skin Antioxidant, Skin Vitamin A, Skin Omegas, Skin Asta Boost and Skin CoQ10 in a super-nutrient solution to nourish, hydrate and protect skin, hair and nails.*  Skin Ultimate was designed to hydrate and plump skin, even skin tone, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and increase hair and nail growth—in a way that topical products can’t deliver. “Topically, our skin can absorb about 60 percent of what is applied on its surface,” Hatcher explains. “By taking oral skin-care supplements, highly active skin-care ingredients will travel through the bloodstream and feed the deep layers, therefore truly reinforcing or ‘power boosting’ your topical skin-care regimen.”

Ideal for all skin types especially aging skin, thinning hair and brittle nails.

Skin Antioxidant – Contains seven super-antioxidant phytonutrients found in plants to help fight free radicals, reducing environmental stress on the skin.*

Skin Vitamin A – Contains vitamin A, the antiaging vitamin, to help maintain healthy skin, balance oil and moisture, and aid normal cell production and repair throughout the body.*

Skin Omegas – Contains omega-3 from fish oil and omega-6 from evening primrose to help moisturize skin and maintain skin integrity and a healthy lipid layer.*

Skin Asta-Boost – Contains Astaxanthin to provide moisture to the skin and improve skin texture and elasticity. Contains Biotin to protect weak and brittle hair and nails.*

Skin CoQ10 – Contains CoQ10 to help reduce signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Contains Pine bark extract to aid skin hydration and reduce signs of aging associated with UV damage.*

STUDY RESULTS

In a 12-week study, marked improvements in skin quality were observed:**

↓ 23% Transepidermal water loss (TEWL)
↑ 20% Smoothness
↑ 18% Hydration
↓ 6% Wrinkle depth
↑ 5% Elasticity

“Collagen needs to be bio-identical, meaning it needs to be your collagen to replace lost collagen,” Hatcher explains. Since collagen naturally starts to break down with age, you’re better off encouraging your body to produce more of it, rather than supplementing with plant- or animal-based collagen (which does not immediately replace or regrow your own personal stash, Hatcher says).

Lira Clinical BB $67:

Full of anti-aging ingredients, Lira Clinical BB 30 with PSC are also anti-inflammatory
An all-in-one beauty revolution, Lira Clinical’s BB Collection is your must-have daily product. This flawless foundation is limitless as a moisturizer, concealer, and SPF 30 protection.
