Chemical peels are great options to clear up hyperpigmentation. If it is superficial hyperpigmentation then Jessner peels are a nice solution to this challenge because the salicylic in the solution also help to keep your skin clear, so it's a 2-fold treatment. The peels should be done in a series, 2-3 weeks apart, and you can also discuss being on a skin lightening regimen at home to maintain your results (like 4% Hydroquinone, or Kojic Acid)...
Jessner's 14% chemical peels do great for post inflamatory hyperpigmentation from acne. Usually you do 1 every 2 weeks for a series of 3-4 @ $175 each. Wear a sunscreen and use a mild cortisone lotion if you become red or irritated and then do 1 every 3-4 months forever to keep your skin clear and wrinkle free.
Hi Cynthia. Chemical peels could definitely help improve the hyperpigmentation. It will also help with your pimples. I suggest a series of 4 peels and them maintenance peels every 3-4 months.
