How does it work?
HPC Clear Cream (30ml) – The main treatment. Delivers tyrosinase inhibitors deep into the skin’s melanocytes to reduce melanin production, thereby reducing hyperpigmentation.
Vita A.C.E Cream (15ml) – Increases cell turnover and regeneration with a powerful cocktail of Vitamin A, C and E.
Who is this product for?
For all skin types (dry/oily/sensitive) & persons over 16 years and over.
Not for persons with a history of reactions to skincare products or overly sensitive or damaged skin.
For regular hyperpigmentation (smooth/dark marks, also known as melasma, age spots or sun spots).
The marks should NOT be raised, indented or red marks or from any other skin conditions that are unsuitable for this treatment, including:
- Vitiligo (hypopigmentation)
- Active Acne, Eczema, inflammation/redness
- Keloid scarring
- Very dry/sensitive skin
- Pigmentation from ongoing systemic medical conditions, or from Ochronosis or Acanthosis Nigricans.
NOT to be used if you have had any professional cosmetic treatment within the last 3 months including laser, chemical peels, hydroquinone, or isotretinoin/roaccutane (6 months).
How to use:
2 hours before bed, gently massage a thin layer of HPC Clear™ on to the pigmentation for 2 nights, followed by moisturiser after a few minutes if needed. On the 3rd night, apply VITA A.C.E™. Then repeat the 3 day cycle.
You may experience mild tingling, peeling, redness upon application (temporarily).
Please apply a simple SPF50 suncream or Dr V Inzincable SPF50 mineral sunscreen throughout the day as UV rays will re-trigger hyperpigmentation. Keep the skin well hydrated at all times with a simple thick, non-fragranced moisturiser.
Not to be used in conjunction with other treatment products from 3rd party manufacturers inc. anti-ageing creams, toners, vitamin A & C creams, exfoliating scrubs, salicylic acid washes etc. on the same area of skin (you may apply these products on other non-target areas).
Dr V Daily Range products ARE suitable for use in conjunction with this kit, but not to be used with “Exfoliate to Glow” and “Antioxidant Power Serum”.
We also recommend oversized sunglasses if your pigmentation is around the eyes/upper cheekbones & temples (or to prevent against this).
If you experience mild skin sensitivity/irritation: please wash off the product immediately with cold water. Please stop for 3-5 days and try again with a smaller quantity of product. If symptoms persist or worsen, discontinue treatment.
WARNING: Not to be used if you: are pregnant/breastfeeding, are allergic to any of the ingredients or their derivatives (inc. aspirin), have any active skin conditions on the area (e.g. eczema, acne); have very sensitive or very dry skin; have had any prescribed or professional skin treatments on the area within 3 months. Not to be used during daylight hours.
Only use on normal skin, not if irritated or injured. If using isotretinoin/Roaccutane, avoid usage of Dr V Facial Pigmentation Kit until 6 months after completion.
