Skin pigmentation and Melarase creams

Skin pigmentation from ingrown hairs can be treated with topical creams such as Melarase AM and Melarase PM, followed by MelaPeels or chemical peels.  I would recommend Melarase AM daily.

Hi Samo90.  I would recommend seeking professional medical evaluation.  There are options to help minimize skin discoloration such as using a Q-switch laser combined with dermapen treatments and skin lightening products.  The key is to have an experienced skin care professional performing conservative treatments.  See the attached video about dermapen treatments.  Good luck.
