Is there a laser skin lightening treatment available in the US that can make brown skin into pale skin throughout the whole body? What is it called?

No: Beyonce's color is fine, Nicole's color is fine, and everyone else's color is fine. We do not have a laser booth for darker people to hop into, turn on a few buttons, and hop out a hour later with a lighter shade of skin. You can do the opposite and get a total body spray tan... but it's hard to make that look natural. Also, why the desire for a different color? Is it for fun, as in using make-up? ...Read more

What is the difference between acne scars and acne pigmentation? (sorry if that's not how the pigmentation is called)

What is the difference between acne scars and acne pigmentation? (sorry if that's not how the pigmentation is called)

Good question!: Acne causes inflammatory (and sometimes infected) cysts; if the surrounding tissues are damaged (enough) by squeezing or more severe infection, scars can result. Even if scars are not caused, inflammation can cause skin pigment cells (melanocytes) to be stimulated, making the surrounding skin darker. This post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can leave blotches and discolorations even without scars. ...Read more
