Hyperpigmentation, sensitive skin. can cosmo peel help me?

Hi doctor, I have hyper pigmentation and skin is really sensitive. I have mix of hereditory pigmentation and pigmentation due to acne . I also have lentigens. A beauty clinic suggested me to go Cosmo peels. But one of the dermotologist told me that there is no cure to this. There are treatments available but those treatments may have side effects i may loss the colour of my skin. I would like to know if cosmo peel can help me out, but am also scared of going for it. I would not like to take any risk

hello
this is dr satya,
welcome to health care magic
facial pigmentary lines, lentigenesare inherited and acne leads to pigmentation which is acquired.
satisfactory treatment is not availble for such conditions.
cosmo peel is expensive and may not adress the condition.
lightening of the skin of the face color may be done by a few sittings of q swithched laser.
the results are going to be temporary.
camoflage is a good alternative which hides away the abnormal color temporarily without affecting your sin.
it is posssible to continue treatment later on
thank you
dr satya
