Hyperpigmentation Chemical Peel
One of the most common characteristics of beauty and youthfulness is a luminous, clear complexion. Skin tone homogeneity can often be a visual signifier of the person’s overall health. As we get older, our skin’s natural ability to fend off UV rays from the sun begins to deteriorate. UV damage (along with hormonal fluctuations and trauma to the skin) can cause the over-stimulation of melanin production, leading to an irregular dispersion of pigment. The resulting dark spots and patches on the skin are referred to as hyperpigmentation.
Chemical peels are an excellent choice of treatment for hyperpigmentation issues. Our hyperpigmentation chemical peel is carefully formulated to reach deeper levels of the skin and dissolve the damaged, age-spotted surface tissue. The older, uneven skin is then replaced with new skin cells, revealing a radiant and renewed complexion. As the healing process occurs, the production of collagen and elastic fibers is also stimulated in the deeper layers of the skin, creating a firmer, more youthful skin texture.
Our hyperpigmentation chemical peels contain a variety of active ingredients, including hydroquinone, hydroxy acids (AHAs), azelaic acid or kojic acid. Depending on your specific needs, your hyperpigmentation peel may contain a combination of active ingredients to maximize your results. More than one treatment might also be required depending on the severity of your hyperpigmentation.
