Lumixyl and LED work to fade hyperpigmentation
Copley first found Lumixyl Topical Brightening Creme and was intrigued by its non-toxic profile and multipurpose technology, developed by dermatological researchers at Stanford University. When she found that it did help fade some dark sun spots, I tried it out and have been recommending it ever since.
I have been testing the Aurora’s green light on a sun spot on my right hand. It is a large, dark freckle. After three weeks, the spot seemed to have faded slightly. Then I started to use the light (three minutes of constant and three minutes of flashing light) after smearing some Lumixyl over the back of my hands. I followed the Lumixyl LED regimen about three times each week and now, after a month, I really am starting to really see results. I think it will take a few months before the spot is really gone, but I definitely think I am on to something.
I contacted Lumixyl to see if we could carry the product line in our shop. My expectations were pretty low because I knew that Lumixyl has a strict policy of distributing only through physician’s offices. However, I was delighted when the CEO personally wrote to me and said he would make exception for Truth In Aging because he appreciated the quality of our content and “pro-consumer” approach. Very cool. So we are now selling the Lumixyl Topical Brightening Crème for $120 and will start testing the rest of the line.
Lumixyl relies on a synthetic peptide, comprising a sequence of amino acids, as its primary defense against hyperpigmentation, but it also incorporates time-honored ingredients believed to aid in treating discoloration, such as licorice and a compound from pine bark. There’s more on the peptide and the rest of the ingredients in Copley’s original Lumixyl review.
