Have dark hyperpigmentation on legs

Asked by Bobby 3 Rep.

Hi I have very dark hyperpigmentation on my legs from mosquito bites from young age. Please can you advise how to get rid of the dark spots on my legs. Thank you!

    Hi Bobby, this is a very common question! I tell my patients with hyper pigmentation on their legs that they can treat it with a one-two punch: exfoliation and bleaching. Exfoliation gets rid of the dead, darker cells that have accumulated on the skin’s surface. BeautyRx’s Exfoliating Body Lotion is a gentle yet effective exfoliant you can use on your skin daily. Bleaches help stop those overactive pigment cells causing the brown color. I suggest connecting with your dermatologist to discuss your options!
