Question: What products work for pigmentation?

Good day DR. I am suffering from blemishes in my face caused by hyperpigmentaion. I would like to know what is the best product to use but not expensive that can lighten up the dark patches in my face.. thank you

Answer

Thank-you so much for your question. I wish there was a quick and simple answer for you, but unfortunately there are a few things I need to know before I can give you the best advice.

So if you could help me with a bit more info, I would be able to give you a better idea of what you need to do: 1) Has the hyperpigmentation been there for a long time? 2) Has it come from having had acne previously? Or has it perhaps appeared during pregnancy? 3) Are the patches very large or just small spots? 4) What products are you currently using, and how long have you been using them for? 5) How often are you in the sun? Is your work predominantly indoors, or do you do a lot of driving?

If you can give me this info, I would be able to give you better advice. I also am trying to ascertain whether your pigmentation is hormonal or not, as we treat the deeper pigmentation differently to pigmentation which is superficial. The other option which you are most welcome to consider, is to come and see us at your nearest Skin Renewal Branch. We have branches in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg and Pretoria.
