Dear Writer, You may have developed excess pigmentation on the chest following the laser treatment. Avoidance of sun exposure is crucial after laser treatment, particularly  CO2 laser. This pigmentation will most likely fade over time, but it would be helpful to use prescription-strength bleaching creams to accelerate this process.

You should return to your doctor for instructions.  You must totally avoid sun in the treated areas or they will become darker.
