Melanin inhibitors, Retinol A, Vit C and B Serums can help to lighten and brighten skin.
Skin Needling is highly effective for treating hyperpigmentation. Microneedling involves piercing the skin with microneedles to create small wounds, causing skin cells to regenerate. The regeneration of skin cells that micro needling causes can disperse clusters of melanin, lightening dark spots.
