Invest in glycolic acid peels as these treatments remove the tan from the upper layers of the skin. If suggested, deeper peels like TCA and modified Jessner's peel can be added. Retinol peels help to reverse skin damage as well as the tan. Chemical peels take between 3 to 6 treatment to show the significant results, though some results can be seen from the first session. Each skin treatment is performed after a period of at least 15 days.
If there is no or minimal improvement with peels, or a quick result is desired, a laser toning treatment can be performed. This procedure gives an immediate result without any downtime and can be repeated monthly or quarterly for maintenance.
