Why did my hyper pigmentation worsen with Cosmelan 2?

Cosmelan and Pigmentation
Without photos it is difficult to comment. However, Cosmelan has hydroquinone and it is possible that you cannot use it. If that is the case then neither their products or the Cosmelan peel would help. With your skin type I would stay away from lasers. You should consider Retin-A and chemical peels. Best, Dr. Green
Cosmelon and hyperpigmentation.
- Discolourations/ post inflammatory hyper pigmentation
- hormonal discolourations
- Old age spots
- Spots caused by the sun
If Cosmelon has been deemed unsuitable for you , you may try other combination peels such as dermamlan or those that contain glycolic with HQ combinations .
