Contact Form Submission – Skin Lightening


Thank you very much for your inquiry regarding skin lightening that can be achieved with Hydroquinone bleaching cream, a Complex Ascorbic Acid molecule lightening cream, chemical peels, intense pulse light devices (IPL) and fractional carbon dioxide lasers all have the ability to lighten skin. The later techniques provide improvement in skin texture, skin laxity, & wrinkles.

Hydroquinone bleaching cream is an excellent initial trial with low risk and high success rates in terms of lightening dark pigment areas. If a large area of skin lightening is deisred, a Complex Ascorbic Acid molecule lightening cream may be the best option.

Medical grade chemical peels used in my practice include trichloroacetic acid (TCA) in two strengths, 35% and 50%. Chemical peels are used for treating hyperpigmentation and for overall skin rejuvenation, by improving fine wrinkles and removing older skin. Bleaching the skin for optimal results is via hydroquinone & multiple chemical peels.

The DOT (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) fractional CO2 skin resurfacing laser device has been shown in a direct, side-by-side, comparison in a peer-reviewed scientific study of the top ten fractional lasers to be the best skin resurfacing laser in the world today. (Waibel J, et al. Preliminary Observations on Fractional Ablative Resurfacing Devices: Clinical Impressions. Journal of Drugs in Dermatology 2009;8(5):481-485). The DOT laser result improves your skin’s appearance by reducing and even eliminating

The optimal treatment protocol for hyperpigmentation is the following: facials with mild chemical peels, sun block, hydroquinone topical treatment followed by Intense pulse light (IPL) treatments (3-6 sessions) for the best outcomes.
