As many of you may know, I was very kindly gifted @cyspera to test.
I get bad melasma around my temples and cheekbones and this summer was no different, it had left me with the usual sun damage that I go into heavy treat mode come autumn.
The nice thing about Cyspera ( for those that are unaware) it can be used all year round and isn’t seasonal.
I started this in early September, using it daily for 8 weeks. I’m aware the instructions say to use it for 16 weeks daily before going to maintenance, however my pigmentation is very slight in the grand scheme of things as well as the fact that I use vitamin c, a pigment suppressor and multiple applications of SPF daily, as well as have in office treatments. It was my assessment that I wasn’t going to achieve much greater results by using it daily anymore and thus went onto a maintenance schedule of twice weekly.
As you can see from the beginning of my journey in the photos, general skin condition is ok/good but I have a coat of sun damage on my face that literally needs to be lifted. .
As you swipe along you’ll get to some pictures that say November. At that point, you can already see how much Cyspera has worked. It has really evened out my skin tone, gotten rid of that ruddy sun damage and healthy skin is starting to appear below.
At that point in my journey, the only in office treatment I had had, was one microneedling treatment. Unfortunately though, I had reacted due to a product which left a cluster of breakouts on my cheek. At that point, I decided to have a chemical peel and after the chemical peel, I reduced my treatment of Cyspera to twice weekly.
I also added in a Niacinamide serum by @alphahskincare. I’ve tried others and for some reason this has had a very positive effect on really evening out my skin tone.
