Can I use Kareskin products to reduce inner thigh and pubic pigmentation?
We are often asked whether Kareskin products such as Melarase AM and Melarase PM; or Luminase and Exfolase body brightening creams can be used to lighten discoloration on the inner thighs, armpits, and pubic areas. We recommend the body brightening kit which includes Melapads, Luminase body lotion, Exfolase body lotion, and Replenish retinoid cream to decrease melanin production in these areas of dark discoloration.
Depending on your skin type, complexion, and amount of deep dermal pigmentation, it usually takes a few months for the creams to lighten the skin. Rapid resolution is not preferred, because laser depigmentation may increase your risk of scarring and PIH post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
If the skin is very discolored, we advise a combination protocol that starts with the application of the body brightening kit to prep the skin, followed by application of light chemical peels and/or fractional laser treatments to eliminate discoloration. The skin prep with the Kareskin body brightening kit allows for a greater buffer of safety and lower risk of recurrence.
