Hyperpigmentation is not limited to caucasian skin, but many treatments for it are. This is because of a higher risk of side effects that look worse than the initial problem. However, a one professional procedure in particular is giving hope to those with darker skin.

Melanage is a peel that starts in your dermatologist’s office and finishes at home. A hydroquinone-and-retinoid mask is evenly spread on the face during a comfortable, 20-minute application period, and it is left on for four to ten hours, depending on your skin type. Because of how long it stays on, many patients leave the office still wearing the mask.

Once home, patients must carefully adhere to a follow-up regimen that includes a cleanser, sunscreen, vitamin A pads, and two creams.

After about two days, skin begins to peel; however, many patients report not even noticing it. What they do notice is a significant difference in the discolored areas of their skin, which gradually improves over three weeks.
