Brief Answer: Glycolic acid peels Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query, LASERS can be used to remove pigmentation but there are many side effects too. There are chances of rebound hyperpigmentation with use of LASER. That is initially there will be reduction in pigmentation but after few months again pigmentation will re appear. In my view glycolic acid peels will be better for you. Have you tried peels any time ? Also constant use of sunscreen helps a lot in reducing pigmentation as well as tanning. LASERS cannot be used for tanning. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you

Brief Answer: Lactic acid peels Detailed Answer: Hello Yes peeling can be done for any type of skin. Only the type of chemical used for peel varies. If your skin is sensitive lactic acid peels can be used. There will be bit burning sensation but there are no major side effects. Also LASERS can never be used for sensitive skin. So In my view its better to avoid LASERS and better to try peels. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you

Sun screen must be applied daily when on peel therapy. The cost it around 3000 per sitting. One sitting per month is done. yes XXXXXXX is good. You can discuss with them regarding this.
