Pigmentation is one of the most common concerns we hear from our patients... besides wrinkles! <--see other post for that ;)
It can be stubborn, frustrating and just darn irritating at times. But we are here to help you ELIMINATE and PREVENT future pigmentation problems.
The Gold standard for topical Pigmentation Lightening is going to be Hydroquinone. You will find this word A LOT when exploring products that claim to help sun and age spots. However, in OTC (over the counter) products that you would find at a drug or department store these percentages will range from .0001- 1% Hydroquinone. HQ at these percentages are not strong enough to be able to reach dark pigmentation spots that are down deep in the skin. Pharmaceutical grade HQ, what we carry, is going to be between 4-6%. Hydroquinone at these levels will treat superficial (recent damage) as well as deep dark pigmentation (long term damage). Lightening products, even at these levels, can take several months to see significant results. We suggest giving it at least 3-6 months to take effect.
Other lightening agents that can work over a long period of time on a daily basis are: Vitamin C, Lactic Acid, Arbutin and Kojic Acid.
IPL Photorejuvenation: The Quick Fix for Pigmentation.
Using the latest technology from Syneron Candella, Reverse Medical Spa delivers high intensity pulses of broadspectrum light as well as bi-polar radio frequency, which is more effective than the narrow band light of other lasers. By doing this we can safely and comfortably fade the appearance of skin imperfections caused by the sun, and uneven skin tones caused by brown and red spots. Results come with the first treatment however we recommend 3-6 treatments depending on depth and amount of lesions to achieve your desired result.
