Dark Bug Bite Scars

Insect bites are common throughout the year and can lead to discolored spots on the skin as a result of a condition known as postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. Bug bites can cause local inflammation on the skin that can stimulate a process of hyperpigmentation. If the process of hyperpigmentation occurs alongside excessive sun exposure, the result is a permanently dark scar that does not go away on its own.

Common areas for the development of dark bug bites cars include the legs and thighs. Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation can be reversed with a combination of therapeutic skin lightening creams such as the Melarase Brightening Kit. Melarase creams work to control the activity of tyrosinase enzymes and thus blocking the production of excessive melanin within the skin. By combining Melarase AM and Melarase PM creams with Melapads, alpha and beta hydroxy acids are used to whisk abnormal pigmentation deep within the skin. For large areas of hyperpigmentation, Kareskin has developed the Body Brightening Kit that includes Exfolase and Luminase creams.
