Hormonal problems, being overweight, sun exposure, and hair removal with a razor or wax are all factors that can influence the darkening and drying of the skin. Although the darkening of the skin seems difficult to treat, there are treatments within aesthetic medicine available to improve the appearance of pigmented areas. The chemical peel is an example of one of the most effective procedures to lighten the skin, but it must be done under the supervision of an aesthetic professional. The chemical peel treatment consists of applying products that regenerate and repair the skin. The aesthetic professional will begin by protecting the sensitive areas, and then applying the products that will help improve the appearance of the pigmented areas.
