Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIHP) occurs as a result of injury or trauma to the skin. As the skin heals, an excess of melanin can occur, leaving a darker patch in that area. PIHP can affect anyone but commonly occurs in those with darker skin tones. It is also commonly seen on those who suffer from acne.

What helps reduce PIHP?:

  • Dermaplaning

  • Microneedling

  • Chemical Peels

  • LED Light Therapy
