Hyperpigmentation is a condition that affects many people. As acne blemishes heal, they leave dark spots on the skin. Sun exposure also causes dark pigmentation areas on the skin that clients often want to diminish. The best preventative measure is to stay out of the sun and wear sunscreen daily. Peels and brightening agents can be effective in reducing breakouts and some of these hyperpigmented areas. Hydroquinone is the only FDA approved agent. It is not a bleaching agent, but a melanin suppressant. Brighteners such as kojic acid, mulberry, licorice root, bearberry and azaleic acid are known to reduce pigmentation. These affect melanin production and are more effective when used with peels.
Peels improve the texture of the skin and increase hydration, moisture retention, elastin and collagen production.
Peels also reduce fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. After treatment, skin looks and feels smoother and softer.
Peels are used to control skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation and clogged pores.
