Can Discoloration Behind my Knees Caused from Eczema Be Removed with Microdermabrasion?

I suffer from discoloration behind my knees due to eczema I used to have. I used hydroquinone 4% for a year and it helped but it didn't get rid of the discoloration completely. It just lighten it up. If I do microdermabrasion will that help to get rid of my discoloration?

Microdermabrasion for sicolored skin


Microdermabrasion will NOT help. In fact, it may worsen the condition. Please consult with your dermatologist for non-interventional options. Topical creams , other than Hydroquinone, can help.
