Kojic Acid: Effective Treatment for Hyperpigmentation and Age Spots
I hope you are having a lovely day! A couple of my friends were inquiring about good products to treat hyperpigmentation or dark age spots. Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition experienced by women of color. Basically, the skin scars and create dark spots where the skin is injured or traumatized. Tweezing, waxing, shaving, and picking pimples can all cause hyperpigmentation. My recommendation is always Kojic Acid. Kojic Acid is a fungal metabolic product, that inhibits the production of melanin, which causes hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
I previously had severe acne and hyperpigmentation. This condition started when I was a teenager. I had tried every type of over the counter and prescribed cream, gel, and pill. Finally in 2001, my new dermatologist prescribed a cream that contained Kojic Acid as the main ingredient. The results were amazing! As a matter of fact, after 1 month of use, my dark spots and scarring were literally gone. My skin is in fantastic condition now. I have learned how to take care of it. But if I am stressed and experience break outs or my skin is traumatized I always order the cream from my former Dermatolgist, Dr. Brent Schillinger. Seriously, within weeks my dark spots are gone and my skin is back to normal. If you are experiencing hyperpigmentation or have dark spots, contact your dermatologist and request a cream that contains Kojic Acid. It works!
