Hyperpigmentation is when the darkening of an area of skin occurs. It may be a mild case of tiny spots or severe dark blotches. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin.
Whatever the case, these condition is treatable.
There are a few ways to treat this condition, but apparently some people use bleaching creams. Perhaps this is the reason some fans on OAP Toolz’s Instagram have come for her with such severity.
The OAP announced that she was starting a new hyper-pigmentation correction regime. She continued by giving updates to her followers on the process
On one of such updates, she shares a picture of herself wearing a face mask. She kept this on for more than 6 hours. Next, she posted a photo of her puffy pink-toned face.
On one of the posts, one of her fans came out to say that the procedure is bleaching. Other fans added their voice to the conversation insisting that the process involves bleaching.
The OAP has insisted that that is not true.
Though a method of hyper-pigmentation correction is by using Retin-A and bleaching cream, there are however, other ways to treat hyper-pigmentation.
It is unclear what method Toolz has chosen to use but the OAP has refuted the accusations saying “This isn’t a bleaching or skin lightening programme,” Toolz said, adding, “It resurfaces and corrects hyper-pigmentation. You can Google it.”
#LastNight Started my Hyperpigmentation Correction Programme with @airesthetics – My skin isn’t horrible, but after a bout of adrenal acne, I had lots of scarring. This treatment is supposed to smoothen and even out my skin tone. First step is wearing this mask for about 6/7 hours…I slept with it on. No pain, very comfortable…only challenge is trying not to get it on my bedsheet lol.
