Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

Mounia came to us with concerns about post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) marks caused by an accidental spill of pool acid on parts of her face and arms. She was worried these darker marks would be with her for life. We decided to treat these areas more aggressively.

A treatment regime alternating Dermapen and Glycolic acid peels were recommended. This was combined with homecare products consisting of a broad-spectrum sunscreen, as well as anti-pigmentation ingredients (tyrosinase inhibitors) and vitamin A.

The marks drastically improved over 12 months and she had the added benefit of a healthier, more radiant skin.
