Is there a treatment for hyper pigmentation?


I have hyper pigmentation caused by lupas profundus on my forehead. I was wondering if you advise me as to what type of treatment l should choose and the cost. I have light brown skin.



 The treatment of Hyperpigmentation is often based upon skin type. Individuals with darker skin typicall can be more difficult to treat. It can be a long and slow process so, be patient. Consider a consult with one of our Affiliate ASAPS UK Members in your area ( ). THey are experts in Skin Care. Best,
