I had fraxel done on stretchmarks on my inner thighs and hips. It has been almost 4 weeks since the procedure. The areas treated are still pink, with a brown undertone. I am fair skin, causasion. Can anyone recommend a specific lotion or follow-up to reduce difference in skin color? I had one treatment of coolwaves and not impressed with results. Also, I have a trip planned in about a month where i will be in the sun. What will happen?

Hi Lynn, Wear a physical sun block over the treated scars when in the sun. Try to avoid sun exposure to the area. I have heard that Lumixyl is an excellent non-hydroquinolone skin lighter worth trying. Good luck, be well, and pass me the sun block. Dr. P
