Modesto do you feel that the more permanent part of the discoloration you’ve had won’t be removed by peels and may be tattoo-like permanent?
No. I think it will all be gone eventually. The peels have been very effective. If the discoloration is bad, several peels may be needed. I think I did 5 before mine was completely removed.
I wish someone here knew why exactly tattoos are permanent and how discoloration from clamping may or may not be different. I know it isn’t completely permanent, but perhaps a good portion of it is permanent much like tattoos are.
Tatoos mark the skin by applying ink to its lower layers. Discoloration from clamping results when iron is deposited to the lower layers of your skin. They are very similar. Lasers can be used to remove tatoos, and I’d bet they would work for discoloration as well. Who knows? Maybe tatoos can be removed with chemical peels?
I can’t say whether discoloration from clamping is really different from that caused by hanging. I think both are caused by placing blood vessels under extreme pressure. Even if the causes are different, the effects seem to be the same, and I’d guess the treatment is likely to be the same.
