Sometimes a series of peels is needed to remove all discoloration.  We offer three peels a month apart for optimal removal of brown discoloration.

Removing Brown Spots

Without seeing before and after pictures, it is impossible to give you specific advice.  However, there are several methods to remove brown spots or pigmentation.  Hydroquinone is a topical cream what works by suppressing pigmentation.  It will take 6 to 8 weeks of daily treatment to start to see a difference.  Additionally laser or LED treatment may also be helpful.  However, you would need an in person consultation to evaluate your issue properly.

 

Good Luck.
