There is a dark pigmentation around my mouth area. I cannot get rid of it no matter what I do. It’s hard to hide it with make-up. Would you be able to help me clear it out please?
This can be a hard problem to correct. Usually it is best treated with lightening creams rather than laser, but can be stubborn. A consultation with one of our doctors would be the best approach, and we can advise you accordingly.
