Patient Stories

Veronica had been suffering from hyperpigmentation, specifically melasma caused by hormonal fluctuations and acne scarring for years. Veronica’s melasma had begun to take a significant toll on her confidence, self-esteem, and quality of life. She needed to act quickly to treat her skin with the best provider in the industry to ensure that her dermatologic concerns are addressed efficiently. After consulting with Dr. Jason Emer, he suggested treating Veronica’s dark spots with the Cosmelan peel, which he utilizes in his practice as a gold-standard treatment for correcting melasma, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars. By inhibiting tyrosinase, an enzyme that suppresses the melanin production process in the skin. It then triggers the skin to generate cellular turnover and begins to exfoliate itself. This process allows for new, fresh skin cells to take the place of old, damaged, and pigmented ones. After about a week of shedding, Veronica is left with a glowing, rejuvenated, and, most importantly, clear face, free of any signs of hyperpigmentation.
