Pierce: I customize my Signature Facial (90 min./from $150) based on each client's skin condition. PIH is best addressed with a cocktail of ingredients, which is why I like Saian's Brightening Series protocol. Following the basic steps, I'm able to incorporate kojic acid, lactic acid, arbutin, Tyrostat (a powerful tyrosinase inhibitor and anti-infl ammatory), Nonapeptide-1, Melanostatine 5 (which prevents melanocortin 1) and even salicylic acid into one service. Barron: Our most effective treatment is our Light Therapy Facial coupled with the Le Mieux AML 20% Peel (75 min./$220). This combination targets hyperpigmentation and infl ammation with advanced brightening agents and peptides, along with thorough exfoliation and red light that penetrates the skin to reduce dark spots and even out skin tone via intracellular stimulation. Henry: The best course of action I provide my guests is the Brighten Facial (60 min./$200). Depending on the type and condition of the skin, I recommend a series of six (for a 25 percent discount), to be received every two to four weeks. It's an exclusive iS CLINICAL facial that includes deep cleansing, extractions and massage, but truly makes a difference because of the Resurfacing Masque—a potent blend of alpha hydroxy acids, enzymes and vitamin A that removes melanin-stained keratinocytes and promotes healthy cellular renewal. What homecare regimen do you recommend for maintaining an even complexion? Henry: Brightening facials can't possibly work their magic without at-home support. I recommend iS CLINICAL White Lightening Complex, a lightweight moisturizer that provides daytime-safe exfoliation with willow bark and sugar cane, while delivering melanin-suppressing bilberry and licorice. For continued brightening overnight, iS CLINICAL Active Serum gently lightens spots, evens texture and prevents the breakouts that can cause PIH. Additionally, there's no point in investing in a series of brightening facials if clients don't prevent future damage with a quality SPF. Pierce: I send each guest home with the ability to recreate the facial service they've received—including a prescription for 7.5 percent kojic acid (I use 15 percent in the treatment). Barron: Le Mieux's Brightening Collection is used throughout the facial as well as for home care. We recommend the brand's Vita-C Serum, which balances uneven tone to restore a healthy, youthful glow. But the most important product for fi ghting hyperpigmentation is sunscreen! u iS CLINICAL White Lightening Complex Ilike Organic Skin Care Brightening Moisturizer Le Mieux Brightening Serum Thalgo Unizones Clearing Corrector Sanitas Brightening Peel Pads Saian Anti-Hyperpigmentation Serum + α Arbutin
