How to Get Rid of Pigmentation with the Depigmentation Peel

Unless you’ve literally been hiding under a rock, you likely have at least a little bit of pigmentation on your skin caused by the sun. Rather than investing in creams and ointments that claim to help you get rid of pigmentation, but they really don’t, let us help you get that more even looking complexion that you’ve been wanting with a Depigmentation Peel.

What’s a Depigmentation Peel?

One of the unique things about this peel is that it’s not just used on the face. In fact, we can use the Cosmelan peel on not only the facial skin but the legs, hands, abdomen, and breast/nipple area. Basically, any areas that have a lot of dry, dark spots, blemishes, or acne scars can benefit from this peel. Additionally, patients who have melasma or chloasma (the mask of pregnancy) can get rid of their severe pigmentation.

What are the Benefits?

One of the reasons why we encourage our patients to try this type of peel is that it gives patients real results and has several benefits. Benefits of this peel include:

Who Is a Good Candidate?

One of the biggest downfalls of many chemical peels is that they are only suitable for patients who have lighter toned skins. One of the things that separates the Cosmelan peel from other peels is that it can be used on patients with all different skin types. Specifically, the Cosmelan peel, can be used on patients who have light skin dark skin, acne, dry skin, pigmentation, and a variety of other skin care concerns. During your initial consultation, we will be able to determine whether or not this peel will make a good fit for you.

Having the perfect skin can be attainable for everyone with the Cosmelan peel. To learn more, contact our Santa Monica office and call 310-829-4104
