I know that the treatment works with a protein called MIA, which stands for Melanoma Inhibitory Activity. Should I be worried about developing a melanoma if I use this type of treatment?
Not at all! This protein was named many years ago when it was thought to interfere with the progression of malign melanoma. We now know this to be false, but it is still called MIA protein. MIA protein blocking have nothing to do with the development of malignant melanoma.
How long does the cosmetic treatment take?
We recommend you use the cosmetic treatment for at least six months. Once the repigmentation starts, we recommend you keep using it until the affected area is completely repigmented. For large patches, this may take several months.
When will I start noticing the results?
Generally, the results become noticeable after 2- 3 months of use. However, some patients see a difference after the first month, and very occasionally, after up to 6 months of consistent use.
Is there a maximum cosmetic treatment period or can I use it indefinitely?
The cosmetic treatment can be used continuously for weeks and even months without problems. The purpose of using Repigment is to obtain the desired results, and how long it takes depends on the size and location of the white patches. There is no time limit.
Once the skin recovers its normal colour, will I have to keep using the cosmetic treatment?
Once the white patches are a normal colour again, you can stop applying the cream to the area. In any case, because the cosmetic treatment has a preventive effect, we suggest your use it occasionally (once a week) on areas affected by friction (hands, elbows, etc.).
I've tried every repigmenting product on the market. What makes Bella Aurora different?
The Repigment cosmetic treatment has mechanism of action that was only discovered a decade ago. In our trials, many patients who had not responded to conventional treatments achieved great results with Repigment12 cream.
Are there any skin conditions (psoriasis, ichthyosis...), diseases (chemotherapy treatment, diabetes...), or other medicines or cosmetics that are NOT compatible with Repigment?
No. There are no skin or health conditions incompatible with its use. Repigment is not recommended during pregnancy or breast feeding because we have not researched its effects under these specific circumstances.
Can the Repigment treatment be used on the eye contour area and eyelids?
Yes, you can apply it around your eyes and to sensitive skin.
Do you guarantee that Repigment will cure my pigmentation disorder?
Treatment with Repigment is highly effective, but we cannot promise that your white patches will disappear. Like all cosmetic treatments, outcomes depend on numerous factors (patient lifestyle, treatment areas, etc). In any case, we will never stop working to make our cosmetic treatment more effective.
After recovering my natural color again, could the white patches reappear in my skin?
Generally speaking, once the skin is repigmented, it is highly unlikely that white patches will develop again in the same area. Unfortunately, the condition may reappear in treated and untreated areas for reasons related to personal stress, friction of serious skin injuries. In this case, we suggest you resume the cosmetic treatment in these areas immediately.
I have been using the Repigment cosmetic treatment for X months/years but nothing has happened. What might this be?
We recommend you use the Bella Aurora Repigment cosmetic treatment consistently for at least six months, which is when you will start seeing the results. It can take several months for your skin to be completely repigmented. However, if you have followed our recommendations and have not seen any improvement, your white patches may have another cause than the one treated.
Will Repigment by Bella Aurora work for me if I have albinism?
Albinism is a genetic disorder characterised by a total absence of melanocytes (cells that synthesise melanin, the colour of the skin) in the eyes, skin and hair. Bella Aurora cannot correct albinism, because there must be melanocytes present achieve the genetic skin tone (the skin’s own natural colour) to be able to repigment the area, and there are no melanocytes in albino skin.
