A. Expert Answer

Hello, thank you for your question. It sound like what you are experiencing is called PIH, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, this forms when there has be inflammation in an area due to trauma, such as waxing or even a pimple. Getting rid of these patches can take some time, three things that need to happen is: 1. We need to suppress any further pigment from forming, this can be done by using a pigment suppressor cream or serum. 2. We need to start mildly exfoliating the area to get rid of the pigment already distributed, this can be done by getting mild chemical peels. It is however important to know that if we don’t take the trigger away, like in your case the waxing, it will keep coming back. A better alternative would be Laser Hair Removal. 3. The most important of all is daily use of an SPF, the sun is the main culprit when it come to pigmentation. Lamelle Corrective Brighter concentrate serum can be used daily to block the pigment pathway and prevent more pigment from forming.
