Has anyone considered permanent makeup or micropigmenation? I have been suffering from this condition for 7 years and like most of you, have tried everything. As I read though the all the messages here on this forum, it's safe to say this condition has struck a whopping blow to most of our social life/self esteem. What makes this issue more depressing for me is that there seems to be no known root cause or cure for it. And to to add more misery to this situation, I'm an african american male and the area where my bottom lip peels has become discolored and very obvious. I am willing to accept the fact that I may have this condition for the rest of my life. And if for some miraculous reason the peeling stops, will I regain the pigment that has been lost. I have an appointment with my Derm next week to get his advise. My logic is even if the peeling continues after the procedure, at least my lip will still be one uniformed color. I'm at the point of desparation...I need to get my life back.
