The most common types of hyperpigmentation that patients come to skin health professionals to treat are facial skin discolorations. Facial hyperpigmentation might be the most noticeable to many, but skin anywhere on the body can be affected. The hands, forearms, chest, back and legs can all succumb to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) and sun-induced hyperpigmentation. Although not common, melasma, or the mask of pregnancy, can form on the forearms due to hormone fluctuations.
When creating daily care regimens for patients looking to achieve an even skin tone on larger areas of the body, spot treatment serums can be cost-prohibitive. An excellent option for treating larger areas of discoloration is the Pigment Bar® from PCA SKIN®. This cleansing bar enhances and supports any of the PCA SKIN pigment control daily care regimens, and can be used by all skin types, conditions and sensitivities.
This formulation highlights a synergistic blend of azelaic acid, kojic acid and niacinamide that work together to calm skin and promote a bright, even skin tone. It is gentle, easy-to-use and cost effective.
Daily use of a broad spectrum sun protection product with an SPF of at least 30 year-round is critical to achieve and maintain an even skin tone. Even those that are good about their daily facial SPF use often overlook protecting the skin on their bodies from sun exposure. Always remember to protect any skin that will be exposed to UV rays every day, not just when participating in outdoor activities.
