Hyper pigmentation is a huge concern for most of my clients. Stress, hormonal shifts, medication, sun exposure, topical dehydration, as well as over exfoliation are contributing factors to hyper-pigmentation.
What you may not know is that IPL, hydroquinone, and other bleaching creams ad inflammation to the skin which will cause your skin to be much more vulnerable to UV rays. Conventional treatments can create “rebound hyper-pigmentation”. If you have ever used these treatment you may have experienced that 3-12 months after you stop (or heal), the hyper-pigmentation returns. These conventional treatments only help in the short term and may be damaging in the long run!
I recommend long term planning. The way to reduce hyper pigmentation, while preventing future hyper pigmentation, is to provide the four things…there are NO Substitutes for:
2. Dermal nourishment
3. Debri removal
Once your skin is stabilized not only will your skin have beautiful, even tone but it will become naturally resilient to damaging UV rays. Remember that it’s impossible to eliminate hyper-pigmention without correcting the cause.
