STAY away from the “quick fix”, harmful and banned substances such as hydroquinone, mercury, steroids, phenol, resorcinol and chemical peels. Hydroquinone is banned in Europe and India.

Most women of colour are using it to treat skin problems, including post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, melasma – a chronic skin disorder characterised by symmetrical, patchy brownish facial pigmentation – and acne.

Sadly, manufacturers and distributors do not declare this information on the packages. Yes, at first they look beautiful and their complexions brighten up, but this is the false sense of confidence most users experience within the first few months of using the products – but it is later followed by a rebound phenomenon and side-effects

The community at large is not aware of the dangers and have no idea that the products they are sold contained harmful and banned substances that come with adverse effects such as:

• severe skin redness, burning, or stinging

• severe skin dryness, cracking, or bleeding

• blisters or oozing

• blue or black discolouration of the skin

• skin cancer

• irreversible skin thinning

• steroids induced acne

• rapid aging

• ochronosis which is a deposition of black pigment under the skin and thus the side-effects of these products nullify their result.

• increased hair growth on the face

• skin infections

• anxiety, depression, nerve damage

You can now safely treat these problems with our exclusive colour blind lasers and safe products at Duzimed Advanced Cosmetic Laser Clinic. The senior therapist has past her exams with Distinction Department of Health, Directorate Radiation Control. We offer a three-step protocol with laser skin rejuvenation, detox and products.
