First-ever treatment for white patches on skin launched by Bella Aurora

Bella Aurora Labs has launched Repigment, its first ever line formulated to treat white patches on the skin.

Repigment is the culmination of a more than four-year collaboration with Italian dermatologist and vitiligo specialist Dr Matteo Bordignon.

Skin pigmentation

“As experts in the study of melanocytes and skin pigmentation, we can offer a solution to skins with abnormal pigmentation. Approximately two per cent of the global population has this skin condition which, although it is not painful, has a psychological impact.” says Jordi Segura, R&D Director at Bella Aurora.

“In the course of my work as a dermatologist, I treat numerous people with hypo- pigmentation, most of whom are desperate to find an effective treatment. With Repigment, we now have an opportunity to improve these people’s lives, making my 10 years of research even more significant.” says Dr Matteo Bordignon.

MIA protein

It was in 2013 that Dr Bordignon published2 his discovery that the MIA protein, produced abnormally by melanocytes, is responsible for hypopigmentation or the formation of white patches on the skin. His studies demonstrate how the MIA protein breaks the adhesion system of melanocytes to the basal membrane, from which they become detached and are lost. It is the absence of melanocytes that causes the appearance of white patches.

Repigment

Repigment is Bella Aurora’s first ever effective treatment for white patches. As well as stopping new white patches from developing, this patented product also restores the pigment to the affected areas.

The new Repigment line consists of the repigmenting cream that contains the Repigma12 peptide to block the MIA protein, and RepigmentSun capsules, a food supplement that prepares the skin for exposure to the sun or for booth radiation sessions.

Recommendations: apply the cream twice daily to the affected areas and take one capsule with a glass of water with a meal to protect the skin. The treatment must be accompanied by exposure to natural sunlight or artificial UV light under the supervision of a health professional. It is recommended to follow the treatment for at least six months or until the area is fully repigmented.

Repigment is available on www.bella-aurora.com.

Proven results

Results of 150 days of treatment and phototherapy3. It is necessary to continue with the treatment until the complete repigmentation.
