Hello, I had a fraxel treatment a week ago to treat pigmentation on my forehead. After the skin peeled off, I see darker skin right at the centre of my forehead, the rest of the forehead is fine. I was wondering if this damage is permanent? Thanks.

Hyperpigmentation after Fraxel
You may have post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Don't worry, this is reversible! You should see the physician where the laser was performed to be evaluated and they can address this.
