Dark Spots on your Face
Many patients come to my office because of acne and the dark spots from acne. I first have to help them stop current acne breakouts to prevent new acne and new dark spots. Then we focus on the hyperpigmentation with a combination of topical retinoids/retin-A, hydroquinones, Vitamin C, Vitamin K serums and sunscreen. To prevent the dark spots from getting darker, strict sun avoidance is most important. Chemical peels in combination with these topical treatments will help hasten the removal of the dark spots. As always please find a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience in cosmetics for the best results.
