Avatar n tn Hello. About 2 years ago I had laser hair removal with IPL (Intense pulsed light) on my lower back and it caused brown marks. The clinic that I used prescribed a special cream made up of retinoic acid (0.025%), hydroquinone 3% in Eumovate cream. I was told to apply this cream twice a day for 7 days ONLY and they said it would expire. However I used it for longer and started to notice the area get red and irritated..however I kept using it for a couple of days after.
Avatar f tn My husband had laser hair removal about two weeks ago to his beard. He developed folliculitis. The folliculitis is now cleared up and the hair on his beard is very patchy. The skin under the hair seems to be lighter than the skin that has no hair. Is this b/c the skin without hair is still healing and will blend in eventually or is it going to stay this way. Also, this was the first treatment. Will hair grow back in these spots that have no hair.

Avatar f tn Hi, I went to laser hair removal last Friday for the first session and I left with red spots (1-2mm diameter). I didn't get any sun but on the following day instead of disappearing they got brown. The esthetician used power 25, don't know whether that is too strong. I called her on Saturday and she said to do not use soap, but I had already had a shower. Will this disappear? what should i do? I first put on my skin aloe vera gel 99.9% and now i'm using organic rosehip oil on the spots.
Avatar n tn I had some laser hair removal done on my upper lip, the last one was in febuary of this year.

However i went on holiday not so long ago and my upper lip had become all hyperpigmented in the sun, it looks kind of dirty.
Avatar f tn I have post inflammatory hyperpigmentation following laser treatment for stretch marks. I am very reluctant to use a hydroquinone cream because of the controversy regarding its safety. Other creams seem to be forms of hydroquinone. Using no treatment, will it eventually fade and how long do you think it will take? Are there other creams using a different agent with less or no safety concern?I have a medium/tan skin tone; any thoughts on why I got PIH ? Can over-zealous laser treatment cause it?
Avatar f tn Hello, Although this site is common for melasma, yet since the hyperpigmentation appeared after the laser treatment. Hence it can be due to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Topical treatments with acids and chemical peels can be effective but can take a while for the skin to totally revert to its normal color. Microdermabrasion can also be done, but this might require several sessions. Also use the hydroquinone cream with caution and as advised by your dermatologist.
Avatar n tn yag tattoo removal machine, work in the same way to remove post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Will it be suitable for me.
Avatar f tn Hello, Laser treatment is not without side effects and may cause hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, redness and erythema. Laser hair removal would require multiple sittings depending upon the area where the laser hair reduction is to be done. You should consult a good dermatologist and discuss the pros and cons with him. Most patients need a minimum of seven treatments.

Avatar n tn About three months ago i had a few moles removed off my face by the shaving technique. My first question involves the scarring. My dermo that perfromed the mole removal did not seem very knowledgeable for the treatment of the scars that would be left in place of the moles. So i tried bouncing ideas off him but he was not very responsive so I just decided to use mederma.

Avatar m tn My daughter has undergone laser treatment for color improvement and pimple scar removal on her face as she has a dark complexion. After the treatment she has exposed herself to sun since she lives in hot weather area.But due to exposure to sun her skin has darkened further as side effect of the laser treatment. Now she feels depressed to have much more darker skin of the face than the original skin and as a father I wanted to do something to improve her color.
