Thanks for your query. Peels generally takes a series to act and 2 peels are not enough. At least 6 peels are needed to show minimum results. Sunscreen should be reapplied every 3 hours, no matter what the spf is. Sunscreens do not prevent tanning. It can be prevented only by physical protection. Just get your regular peels and keep yourself protected from sun and it will be okay. Hope it helps.

Facial discoloration and Melarase creams

I would use a combination of Melarase AM and Melarase PM with Melapads to reduce discoloration of the skin. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles
