The Chemistry of Treating Pigmentation



Pigmentation can be a challenging condition to treat. Often, treatments fail to deliver the level of results expected. 
This is largely due to there not being one simple solution; especially when considering non-light based (IPL and Laser) modalities.
The objective of this course is to understand how a skin care formulation can be linked to skin structure and function of the skin; 
in this case the formation of the melanocyte, and influence cellular processes in order to make a measurable difference to 
treatment programs and interventions dealing with the skin condition of pigmentation.


Pigmentation can be a challenging condition to treat largely due to there being not one simple solution. There are a number of what is termed "intervention points" along the path of pigment formation, and each requires a specific type of chemical to reduce or halt the formation of pigment. Because there is no one chemical that can interfere with the melanogenesis process 100%, there must be a minimum of four, or best case scenario five chemical "interventions" required to have maximum success. 

Topics covered in this one unit course include:
• Review of the melanogenesis process
• The five intervention points in melenogenesis
• Preparatory steps
• Delivery systems
• MSH inhibitors & antagonists
• Tyrosinase inhibitors
• Pigment granule inhibitors
• Melanosome transfer inhibitors
• Cellular defense systems 


The objective of this class is to understand how a skin care formulation can be linked to skin structure and function and influence cellular processes to make a difference to a skin condition such as pigmentation.
This course includes a downloadable PDF copy of the book "Cosmetic Chemistry" by Florence Barrett-Hill.
Prerequisites and prior learning:
Other Pastiche specialty courses; Understanding Pigmentation A-Z, Melanogenesis & Pigmentation, Advanced Skin Analysis Module 3, or other prior learning that deals with the anatomy, histology, morphology and physiology of the melanogenesis proccess.
