Dark spots can appear after acne spots have healed, after pregnancy, and often they are due to genetics. These dark sots or melasma most commonly appear on the cheeks and sides of the face but can show up anywhere including the backs of hands and the chest area.
Sun protection is necessary during treatment and after in order to prevent these spots from recurring. Dr. Egan has specially formulated Rebrightalyze, a solution of Kojic Acid, Arbutin, and Bearberry along with skin protective antioxidants to help lighten dark spots and melasma. These natural botanicals have been scientifically proven to help with skin tone.
Dr. Egan will compound the Rebrightalyze solution on site for maximum freshness and can add in hydroquinone, a prescription level ingredient that blocks the enzyme responsible for dark spots and melasma. Please note, hydroquinone should not be used during pregnancy or nursing.
