My skin has darkened two shades I am Asian Indian. Sun damaged what type of peel will work?
The best chemical peel for you may not be the best chemical peel for someone else. This is why it is so important to come in for a consultation so that one of our practitioners can evaluate your condition in person. What medications are you on that might also be contributing to this condition? What type of “pattern” is there to the marks, or is it overall? Could it be a hormonal issue also? Do you wear a sunscreen everyday? Do you also have acne? Is your skin too sensitive to have a peel immediately–most darker skin types need to be prepped at home for at least two weeks prior to a peel. See my point? However, in general, one of the peels we perform at the practice that is targeted specifically for sundamaged skin is called the Cosmelan peel (which has a description on our website you can read further about). Also, the Greenwich VIP Peel is very effective and requires a series of 3 to 6 peels spaced 3 weeks apart, and specific homecare products in conjunction with a series is critical to achieving the desired results.
I hope this answers your question and hope to see you in person. Contact us to schedule a consultation so we can setup a plan of action specifically for you!
