Hyperpigmentation - Auveau

Skin pigmentation is something you can be born with or something that can occur over time as a result of sun exposure and environmental factors. Those struggling with hyperpigmentation or melasma can find it difficult to discover effective treatment on their own, as home remedies are largely inadequate. Melasma can appear anywhere on the faces, on the forearms, the neck, and other areas with frequent sun exposure, making it a prominent concern.

The traditional treatments of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) tends to be a difficult and prolonged process that often takes 6-12 months to achieve the desired results of depigmentation.

Chemical Peels are formulated with an acidic gel made up of naturally occurring acids such as alphahydroxy acid (AHA), beta hydroxy acid (BHA), glycolic or salicylic acid combined with other skincare ingredients. Chemical peels are often used in combination with micro-needling in order to resurface and improve the health of the skin.
