Do you have unattractive areas of skin discoloration that you would like to get rid of? If yes, there are several procedures available that can help. Although hyperpigmentation is not a harmful skin issue, it can be difficult to treat. That’s why patients with the condition are often anxious to find out – How can I reduce hyperpigmentation.

What is hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is essentially areas of dark discoloration on the skin that forms as a consequence of the excessive production of melanin. Melanin is a pigment that the body produces to protect the skin from the UV rays of the sun, and that’s why hyperpigmentation is usually seen on the sun-exposed areas of the skin. Common forms of hyperpigmentation include sun spots, brown spots, and melasma.

How can you reduce hyperpigmentation?
It’s possible to reduce hyperpigmentation and clear your complexion with Melanage Peel. The Melanage Peel is a specialized superficial chemical peel that is used to lighten dark patches on the skin.

How the Melanage Peel works
The Melanage masque is applied to the skin during an in-office visit to your physician, and is left in place for 5-10 hours. The length of time the masque remains on the skin depends on the patient’s skin type, and the condition being treated. Patients are given instructions about how to remove the mask, as well as how to care for their skin at home (click here to learn more).

The skin generally peels in the week following treatment and when this is over, patients will notice that the pigmented areas of the skin are much clearer.
