PIH is very common among acne sufferers. It can occur in all skin types, although it is more common in darker skin tones.
Luckily, PIH is not a true scar and therefore can be treated in the clinic quite effectively. The prescribed home care that I recommend my acne clients not only addresses acne, but starts the process of lifting the unwanted hyperpigmentation left from acne lesions.
Some of the active ingredients that assist in the lightening of dark spots include mandelic acid, lactic acid, kojic acid, licorice root, mulberry, vitamin c and azelaic. These ingredients are included in Medical Esthetics by Katie's weekly corrective treatments.
