The most non-traumatic method is surface peeling (under the influence of acids, a slight chemical burn of the skin is caused, releasing a layer of keratinized cells containing an undesirable pigment). Combining the effects of acids with the use of substances that inhibit the production of pigment melanin can consolidate the result.
