Hi Kerry. Thanks so much for your question. In most cases, pigmentation on the upper lip is hormonal in nature. Because of this, the pigment tends to sit in the dermis, and you cannot reach the dermis adequately to remove pigmentation with topical cosmetics or home peels. You are going to need to consider using prescription products and possibly even consider some treatment. Why don’t you have a look at some of your options by contacting your nearest Skin Renewal branch on www.skinrenewal.co.za.
