At the offices of Steven Jepson MD, our primary goal is helping you achieve a youthful, beautiful appearance in several major cosmetic areas using a variety of treatment methods. From our Botox and Juvederm dermal fillers to several laser treatments and much more, we’ve assisted numerous patients in achieving the look they desire.
In addition to several specific procedures, we also offer several anti-aging skincare products and expertise to go along with them. One product that’s gaining popularity on the market these days, in part due to its pigmentation benefits but also in part due to how well it complements several different med spa treatments, is called Lytera 2.0. Let’s go over why Lytera is becoming more and more popular, plus how it and other topical pigment reducers work.
Lytera 2.0 Basics and Ingredients
As we just noted, Lytera 2.0 is considered a pigment reducer, or a pigment correcting serum. It’s meant to address a few things, which we’ll get into in detail a bit later, but its primary stated purpose is assisting the appearance of skin discoloration in multiple areas, hence the pigment reference.
Lytera 2.0 is great because it works for any skin type or genetic makeup, all the way across the board. Its ingredients include:
Tranexamic acid: Helps with hyperpigmentation issues
Phenylethyl resorcinol: A chemical that helps with melanin balance
Niacinamide and tetrapeptide-30: Elements that help limit the growth of new pigmentation spots, while also balancing skin tone
Marine extract blend: Supports the skin barrier while also assisting with hyperpigmentation
Phytic acid: Benefits skin texture and evenness
The general benefit areas of Lytera 2.0 include:
All skin types and makeups: As we noted above, you can use Lytera 2.0 no matter your skin type or genetic factors.
Blotching and pigmentation: A high percentage of Lytera 2.0 users say it helps lighten darker blotches of skin.
Skin tone: Nearly all users of this product report happiness with the way it improves the evenness and smoothness of skin tone.
Other products: Lytera 2.0 is often used to help optimize other treatment formats, such as laser therapy or certain prescription products.
Healthy: Lytera 2.0 is free of retinol and paraben, and also non-hydroquinone, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic.
Proper Application Formats
In most cases, Lytera 2.0 is used on a daily basis for general skin care and supplementation of other treatments. It can be used on the face, but also on the neck, chin, chest or other bodily areas affected by pigmentation issues.
Unless directed otherwise by Dr. Jepson or another professional, apply one pump once or twice a day. This is usually done after cleansing and skin toning in the morning and evening, but we recommend doing it before applying and moisturizer or sunscreen. Do your best to avoid spending time in direct sunlight immediately after applying Lytera 2.0, as this may diminish its effects.
