  • Hyperpigmentation_help!

    My mum went to the doctors and they said they couldnt do anything because it was cosmetic only.

    I've got the opposite of what my mum has got on the side of my face but its covered with hijab so it doesnt bother me. But people comment and ask my mum about her face and it makes her feel uncomfortable.

    Can anyone suggest something that works and fades the discolouration. Ive looked at skin lightening products but we dont want to waste money on something that doesnt work.

    JazakAllah Khair.

    That's a toughy... But my advice to you is to actually stay away from skin lighten products unless you know what it is

    Or like test try it on your arm to see if it works....other than that....check out a physician

      What i want to do is get a list of creams and go through the list with the doctor to see if they are alright to use. i know that some can make the condition worse.

        Microdermabrasion is supposed to work and you can get kits which allow you to do it at home. Not sure how effective they are but my friend had hyperpigmentation and was looking into this.

          mums got severe hyperpigmentation which the doctor has told us is deep within the skin, not sure it will work but i'll check it out. it may help to fade the patches though, nice one. thanks :)

            your doc online here :)
            may i ask where the pigmentation is?
            is it on sun exposed areas? or skin flexures (knuckles,knees and armpit)
            long has it been there for?
            anyways if the doctors think that its a cosmetic issue then i am sure that they have ruled out everything ,
            there are lots of skin lightening preparations containing hydroquinone but these are only temporary
            kojic acid preparations are natural way out
            and if u want to stay safe try turmeric preparations ,its known to block melanin preparation
            feel free to ask if u wanna know more
            :)

                so that goes for sun exposed area...she just needs a good subblock and skin peeling with dermal abrasion techniques ,glycolic peels work good for pigmentation too..she can try kojic acid preparations to lighten the pigmentation but after that she needs to take care and avoid sun exposure :)
                she will be fine inshaAllah
