Hyper-pigmentation

Question

Which products work to combat Hyper-pigmentation on sensitive skin?

Submitted by Nina De Winter-peer on 20 August 2013

Answer

Thank you for your question. Skin Renewal has professional products which offers great results to patients struggling with Hyper-pigmentation. From my experience, sensitive skin is 90% of the time because of an impaired barrier. Therefore, giving you an appropriate barrier restoring cream such as Lamelle’s Serra Restore Cream, and getting your skin functioning correctly, you would very be able to use any of our pigmentation ranges within a month or two, without sensitivity being a concern. We offer a variety of pigmentation ranges – Enlighten form NeoStrata, Lumixyl, Lytera from Skin Medica and Luminesce from Lamelle. Depending on the severity of your pigmentation, the correct product should be chosen.
NeoStrata has brought out a new range called the Enlighten Trio, containing 3 products, blocking 6 pigmentation pathways and containing 12 active ingredients.
Enlighten Ultra Brightening Cleanser
Enlighten Illuminating Serum
Enlighten Pigment Controller
You will use all of these every morning and night.
Making use of a sunscreen will prevent further pigmentation, so in the morning I would recommend Heliocare XF Gel 50, using it over the range mentioned.

Question

Hi, I recently developed a rash on the side of my underarm (just outside of the underarm area). I thought it was just heat or friction, but it has been a week and it has not gone away or shown any change. It doesn’t hurt, but its sensitive, red ans makes me feel self conscious in strappy shirts. Is there something else that could’ve caused this and what is the best way to treat it?

I have major sensitive skin with terrible discoloration, and now I have developed a massive rash that and with all the products that I have tried both natural and chemical based, my face just burns and since it is sensitive to every thing I have tried, it has now gotten flaky and I also have hyper-pigmentation.
