Skin discoloration is the primary cause of premature aging and is usually caused by a combination of UV sun exposure, hormonal influences, and chronologic aging processes. The most common forms of skin discoloration include age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a renowned expert in hyperpigmentary skin problems and has published extensively in the field. If you have uneven skin tone as a result of hyperpigmentation, Kare Plastic Surgery + Skin Health Center offers effective skincare protocols, laser treatments, and chemical peels that can improve your skin complexion dramatically.

Women of childbearing age may experience abnormal skin pigmentation on the face that is associated with sun exposure, hormones, and pregnancy. Melasma occurs in a majority of women and can be influenced by endocrine changes in adulthood. The most common patterns of facial melasma include pigmentation that occurs on the forehead, cheeks, and jawline. Getting rid of melasma starts with an effective skincare regimen prescribed by a physician. Kareskin's Brightening Kit may be the right solution for you.

Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)
Hyperpigmentation that occurs after surgery, scarring, burns, acne, and inflammation is known as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) and is characterized by skin discoloration in the epidermis and dermis. PIH is usually more resistant to treatment and responds well to a combination of Melarase creams, retinoid exfoliation, lasers, and chemical peels.
Most cases of PIH occur after cosmetic surgery or acne, but any type of skin injury can lead to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an expert in the management of combination PIH and PIE (post-inflammatory erythema) in which the skin has both prolonged redness and dark discoloration.
Treatment always begins with the application of the Melarase Brightening Kit followed by a combination of chemoexfoliation with chemical peels and laser exfoliation.
