Hypopigmentation and Professional Treatments
Chemical peels are not recommended for those with vitiligo. Vitiligo can be triggered by heat and friction, and the application of a chemical peel can create heat, which in turn can exacerbate the very condition you are trying to treat.
To promote an even skin tone when treating UV-induced or post-traumatic hypopigmentation it is recommended to incorporate a daily care regimen. However, it is important to remember that there are no available regimens to re-pigment the white lesions, but the reduction of the surrounding hyperpigmentation will typically make the hypopigmentation appear less noticeable. Please see the Brightening and Evening of the Complexion Regimen for specific daily care products recommended.
