Do chemical peels help treat hyperpigmentation? What precautions should I take before getting a chemical peel?


Chemical peels are a fabulous approach for treating hyperpigmentation. Superficial peels can be administered once a month depending on the pigmentation severity. I cannot say how many months of treatment you require but they are wonderful for your skin. Chemical peels are a very healthy way to rejuvenate and bring out the new skin cells. After you have the treatment, stay out of the sun and wear lots of UVA and UVB protection. Deeper chemical peels are associated with downtime, but are also a helpful tool in treating hyperpigmentation, depending on the patient. Be careful, as certain peels can worsen some hyperpigmentation. Be sure to discuss this with a qualified physician.
