Skin discolourations removalGet rid of your skin imperfections
Discolourations result from an excessive production of the pigment (melanin), whereas the number of pigment-generating cells (melanocytes) remains at the proper level. Melanocytes are located in the lower layer of the epidermis. They are capable of transforming a colorless substrate of tirosine into a brown pigment - melanin - in the course of the chemical reaction. It is stored in the organelle called melanosomes, conveying the pigment to the cells that surround the epidermis (keratinocytes). Then the pigment along with epidermis cells go up towards its surface, where they are exfoliated in the stratum corneum.
The discolouration intensity depends on the amount of melanin that has been generated. In most cases discolorations occur to females; barely 10% of males suffer from this ailment. The darker the skin the higher probability of the ill.
