You can start to see results after 2-3 months of application. Some patients have achieved results after the first month and, in very rare cases, after 6 months of correct application.
The more years with the pigmentary disorder, the longer the treatment time?
There is no direct correlation. In any case, a larger area may take longer to respond compared to smaller ones.
Is it 100% sure that with Repigment12 I will be able to repigment the white spots on my skin?
The Repigment12 treatment is highly effective, but we cannot guarantee that all white spots will disappear. As with any treatment, the results depend on many factors (patient's habits, treatment area, etc.).
The study carried out has shown a high efficacy and in subjects who had not previously obtained great results. However, as in any treatment, the results depend on many factors (patient's habits, treatment area, etc.). We hope you get the expected results and we would like to remind you that we keep working day after day to improve the efficacy of our treatment.
I have tried all the repigmenters on the market, why Bella Aurora can help me?
The Repigment12 cosmetic treatment is based on a mechanism of action that was completely unknown until a decade ago. In our trials, many participants who did not respond to other treatments obtained great results with Repigment. See results.
Why is Repigment a cosmetic treatment and not a drug?
Repigment cosmetic treatment is based on studies conducted by Dr. Matteo Bordignon, who has succeeded after years of research to identify for the first time in the world the MIA protein as the main cause of the white spots present in hypopigmentation. This MIA protein is found in the epidermis, the most superficial layer of the skin (the area where cosmetics act).
Dr. Bordignon also discovered a short-chain peptide capable of counteracting this MIA protein: Repigma12. This peptide is an approved active ingredient in cosmetics and is the key active ingredient in Repigment12. Since the MIA protein is found in the epidermis (the zone of action of cosmetics), and the Repigma12 peptide is approved in cosmetics, it is not necessary for the product to be classified as a pharmaceutical product.
Moreover, the fact that it is classified as a cosmetic product and not a drug has made it easier to get the product to the end consumer in an equally safe but much faster way than a drug.
If the mechanism of action of the therapy is completely different from those considered so far, why did I experience some results when using available therapies such as UVB-NB or immunosuppressants?
Treatment with UVB-NB and/or immunosuppressants (such as tacrolimus or primecrolimus) has a stimulating effect on skin adhesion molecules and a direct stimulatory effect on pigmentation. That is why you may experience some results, as with the use of skin irritants such as kelin or piperine.
Is Repigment tested on animals?
Bella Aurora does not perform and has not performed any animal testing of cosmetic products or active ingredients used, neither to develop or produce, nor to evaluate their safety or efficacy. We abide by the European cosmetics legislation that has prohibited this practice for years.
Neither Repigment12 nor Repigma12 peptide have been tested on animals.
When the labeling indicates "Dermatologically tested" it means that the product has been tested for use on human volunteers under real conditions of use.
Are there any skin pathologies (psoriasis, ichthyosis...), diseases (chemotherapy treatment, diabetes...), or other medications or cosmetics that are NOT compatible with Repigment12?
No. No skin or health condition contraindicates its use
Does Repigment12 by Bella Aurora work if I have albinism?
Albinism is a genetic disorder characterized by the total absence of melanocytes (cells that synthesize melanin, the color of the skin) in eyes, skin and hair. Repigment by Bella Aurora will not have satisfactory results in albinism, since melanocytes are needed to repigment the area with the genetic tone (the natural tone of the skin itself), and in the skins that suffer from this disorder there are none.
Is it possible that after skin regimentation, white spots may return?
In general, after skin regimentation, it is very unlikely that new white spots will appear in that area. Unfortunately, there may be a new appearance in treated and untreated areas, which is usually related to personal stress, rubbing or significant skin injury. In that case, we suggest that you begin applying Repigment12 to these areas immediately.
Use and Application
How long is it recommended to apply Repigment?
It is recommended to apply the cosmetic treatment for at least 6 months. When repigmentation begins, it is recommended to continue applying until complete repigmentation of the affected area. This process may take several months for larger areas.
Is there a maximum application period for Repigment12 or can it be used indefinitely?
The use of the cosmetic treatment can be continued over time without any problem, there is no limit of weeks or months for the application. The objective of Repigment12 is to obtain the desired results, and depending on the area and size of the white spots it will take more or less time.
When an optimal result is achieved in the spots, is it necessary to continue applying Repigment?
When the spots are repigmented and the skin regains its tone, the cream can be discontinued in that area. However, since the cosmetic treatment has a preventive action, we suggest applying the cream occasionally (once a week) on the most rubbed areas (hands, elbows, etc.).
Generally, after skin repigmentation, it is very unlikely to experience a new appearance of white spots in that area. Unfortunately, new appearance may occur in treated and untreated areas that are usually related to personal stress, friction or major skin injuries. In this case, we suggest immediately starting to apply Repigment12 to these areas.
I have been using Repigment12 treatment for X months/years and have not seen any results. What could be happening?
Our recommendation is to be very consistent with Bella Aurora's Repigment12 treatment for a minimum of 6 months. Complete repigmentation may take several months to show. However, if you have followed our recommendations and still have not seen any improvement, it is possible that your white spots are of a different type than the one treated.
Can the Bella Aurora treatment be used on the eye contour area?
Yes, it can be applied to the delicate eye contour area. It is hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin.
Is Repigment recommended for use on children?
There are no studies conducted on children, so we cannot advise its use. In addition, as it requires phototherapy, it is important to be monitored by a dermatologist. The dermatologist will be the one to assess the Repigment12 treatment. If your dermatologist needs information regarding the treatment, we can contact him/her personally to provide all the information.
Can Repigment be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding?
Repigment12 is not recommended during pregnancy and breastfeeding, as the effect of the cosmetic treatment on these particular conditions has not been investigated.
Can I use self-tanning products while I am undergoing treatment with Repigment12?
The use of self-tanners with DHA or erythrulose is not recommended, since the phototherapy may not reach the melanocyte correctly, but if you want to use it for aesthetic reasons, the product has no contraindication with Repigment12. Just remember the importance of not applying it before the Repigment12 cream.
Can I combine Repigment12 for white spots and the bio10 forte treatment for dark spots?
You can apply the Repigment12 treatment on the entire hypopigmented area and the bio10 forte depigmenting treatment on the specific dark spot. After thoroughly cleansing the skin, apply the bio10 forte serum on the hyperpigmented spot. After washing your hands, continue applying Repigment12 on the rest of the hypopigmented areas.
