Avatar n tn I have skin discoloration from bruise, insect bites,cut or burn after healing it leaves a spot that never goes away. I am 39 years and I have had this problem since I was teenager. I use bleaching creams for a period of two weeks or less as long there is no sign of improvement I discontinue.
Avatar n tn If so, there are a number of treatments available. One very popular remedy has been laser skin resurfacing which helps to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, lines and hyper pigmentation surrounding the eyes and mouth. It can also be used to treat areas on the cheeks. Laser resurfacing does not cause as much discomfort, bruising, scaring or bleeding compared to other cosmetic surgery procedures.
Avatar n tn I am quite wealthy so money is not a problem.I have been reading about cryosurgery and laser surgery.Would any of that help to lighten my skin by a shade or two.Any suggestions or comments are highly appreciated.
Avatar n tn The lady performed the treatment, and when the procedure was done, I went to my car to discover I had 21 burns on my neck, and face, as well as multiple areas of hypopigmentation (lighter areas of my face, where the laser blasted the melanin out of my skin) I went back a week later and he gave me sone hydrocortizone cream, and told me after the scabs healed they would leave dark marks, which they did.
Avatar f tn I had RK about 30 years ago and Lasik 15 years ago. I am now 72 and have been told I have moderate cataracts; right eye worse. I can function relatively well; have had glasses now for years. I have records before/post Lasik. I have consulted two ophthalmologists; neither wants to consult records. When I expressed concern about selecting IOL, the first discounted my questions and the second said, "Don't overthink the problem; I would suggest making the IOL about 1 diopter myopic.
Avatar m tn I got laser treatment where my doctor treated it with a weaker dosage of laser once, and last week I got a stronger dosage of laser on the bruise. It seemed to have the turned the pigment darker. Is this normal or should I stop getting laser treatment?

Avatar n tn The treatment for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment.Apply hydroquinone cream on this scar and it should go away in a few days to months.If it still persists then you can go in for laser treatment, Chemical peeling or microdermabrasion. Avoid picking, harsh scrubbing, and abrasive treatments unless prescribed by a dermatologist during this period. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn I have used TCA, glycolic peels, hydroquinone, tretioin, kojic, bit nothing has reduced it. Recently i heard that yag laser can be used for depigmenting skin by destroying melanin cells itself, and in a way cause hypopigmentation in these regions. Can I do this. Please advice the type of laser, etc.
Avatar f tn Hello, The treatment for such dark spots and hyperpigmentation includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment.As you have a sensitive skin,so any of these is not recommended.Apply calamine lotion and aloe gel. If it still persists then you can go in for laser treatment, Chemical peeling or microdermabrasion. Avoid picking, harsh scrubbing, and abrasive treatments unless prescribed by a dermatologist during this period.
Avatar n tn Treatment of Fordyce spots includes CO2 laser or electro desiccation, TCA chemical peels(temporary treatment),diathermy or laser vaporization. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Kind regards.
Avatar n tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it might be due to chloasma of pregnancy.It is a tan or dark facial skin discoloration. Although it can affect anyone, melasma is particularly common in women, especially pregnant women and those who are taking oral or patch contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The treatment includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment.
Avatar n tn As for laser therapy, this may be of use also but look for a dermatologist with a good experience in terms of performing laser procedures. Laser therapy may burn skin and cause discolorations also. Bleaching creams may be used also but with close supervision as this may be abrasive.

Avatar f tn s looks like my chin is bleached. Will my natural brown skin color come back? How long will it take for me to recover from this? Is this permanent? I'm worried and scared. It's horrible. Is there a different product I could use to even out skin? I need help. ASAP. Thanks.
Avatar n tn It sounds like you might have some hemosiderin staining--i.e., your skin has been stained by your blood. I had that problem following eye surgery. In some cases, this type of staining can be permanent--but don't worry, I have a solution for you. Google "candela laser" to find the company's website. You'll find a small-scale study in which the AlexTriVantage laser successfully removed "permanent" hemosiderin stains.
Avatar f tn I do also have dark thin line which look like a mustache due to skin pigmentation (i think). When i spread the skin it do not appears but otherwise it looks really awkward. I have used some skin lightening creams but it did not help. How can i get it better. What are the treatments available? Is there any cosmetic or laser treatments are available?

Avatar n tn The treatment for acne scars includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment.

Avatar m tnLaser treatment to Cherry Angiomas immediately. We use a long pulsed Nd:Yag laser for this and I would anticipate removal of these in one session with no real issues. Commence Obagi Nu-Derm immediately for the reduction in hyperpigmented areas. The system is a combination treatment of 4% Hydroquinone and tretinoin and should be used for a minimum of 6-12 months. As we discussed, this will cause initial redness and flaking, as both active ingredients are irritating to the skin.
Avatar f tn But when the same laser is also absorbed by the melanin in the skin, it turns the surrounding skin darker. (They place the laser right on the skin to get the hair, so I have no idea how they can claim the skin woykd not be affected.) Of course, you sign a waiver before doing it, so all of this is just hindsight talking.
Avatar m tn I had a bith mark removed years ago by the laser ,I would think it would work the same way, google Laser they may tell you what it can be used for.
Avatar n tn Hello, There are 5 types of laser hair removal systems. These include pulsed light, Nd YAG laser, diode laser. Alexanderite laser and ruby laser. This depends on the skin type and varies from patient to patient. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist for the skin type and then depending on that, laser hair removal can be decided.
Avatar n tn ve seen different therapies available, but I am not sure which one I should be looking for (i.e. IPL / Fraxel Laser... There were other laser types but I am not sure.) Different places have different treatments and I just wanted to have a better idea what might remove this single flat mole, and cause minimal to no discoloration if removed. Please guide me to the direction and type of professional I should look for.
