Dull complexion is typically caused by lack of exfoliation. Using quality products can help this tremendously. Dark spots can be caused from old acne scars, the sun, and other environmental factors.
Treatments for Dark Spots and Dull Complexion
Peels – peels are a chemical form of exfoliation that slough off the top layer of dead skin over the course of a few days. There are many different peels with many different ingredients. Each peel is designed for different skin types. Typically, most peels are designed to help with pigmentation and dull complexion.
Fraxel – Fraxel laser can be used for correcting pigmentation caused from sun damage, a skin condition known as melasma, and is FDA approved for the treatment of Actinic Keratosis. It can also be used to treat acne scarring, and facial tightening (fine lines / wrinkles)
Medical grade products – The difference between drug store products/over the counter products and medical grade products is not only pricing, but the ingredients. The active ingredients found in medical grade products are much more potent and designed to penetrate deeper into the skin than OTC products and most often give much better result.
