What is Hyperpigmentation and how will a chemical peel help
Hyperpigmentation is a condition caused by excess of pigment in the skin causing areas of brown spots on any part of the body. Pigmentation levels usually increase with age especially if you have been exposed to sun and sun tanning beds. Brown spots are a common problem for those who have had excessive sun exposure, are taking synthetic hormones or are undergoing hormonal changes as a result of pregnancy or menopause.
There are several types of hyper pigmentation seen with clients such as freckles, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, pregnancy related hyperpigmentation and sun exposure hyperpigmentation. A chemical peel will slowly help lift the hyperpigmentation. We suggest you go home with PCA Retinol Therapy, PCA Vitamin C Max and PCA Sunscreen to help speed up the process of lifting the pigmentation along with chemical peels.

Melasma is described with patches of hyper pigmentation that are found on the forehead and usually on the cheeks. These mask like facial discolorations or brown patches are more common in women than in men. Many women will get melasma after pregnancy, birth control pills, hormone medication, changes caused my menopause and excessive sun exposure. Melasma is a harmless condition but is very esthetically displeasing. Most forms of this condition can be treated successfully with chemical peels along with going home with PCA Retinol Therapy, PCA Vitamin C Max and PCA Sunscreen to help the process faster.
