Advice on removing pigments

Post by chmimipink » Tue, 19 Mar 2019 11:18 am

Hello, I used to be very active in water sports. Sometimes, i would suntan often when i was in my 20s. Of course, i will apply suntan lotion (spf 15) that kind. Now, my face has freckles and 1 small pigment. Gosh. Anyone has any tips to remove or lighten the pigment without having to see doctor?

Nope, the pigment is here to stay. Even lasers won't remove them 100% so save your money on lasers. Creams may lighten but won't help much as well. The only way is further prevention but slathering on more SPF every 3 hours outdoors would help worsening it.

Most skin pigmentation is benign and can actually be removed surgically or using a laser. My mother had it done with a laser and it was very effective. On the other hand, the pigment may actually be melanoma, a skin cancer than can only be removed surgically. If you are worried that this may be the case for you, it is best to see a dermatologist to be sure.
