I am a 26 year-old-girl of Asian origin. I went to a doctor for chemical peels to treat my acne. I started seeing significant difference and wasn't getting as much acne as before. The doctor then recommended laser resurfacing for the acne scars, so I had Erbium Laser Resurfacing done around November last year.
My skin peeled heavily. I was applying a lot of sun screen during the day. My face looked smoother in 4 weeks, but I started to notice some slight discoloration on both my cheeks, on my nose, and some bit on my forehead. Some are brown patches while others are pink. I am trying to cover it with makeup but it does look awfully bad without any makeup.
My doctor told me to apply Retin A and Hydroquinone every night. I have been doing this for over 2 weeks now. The patches look a little lighter but not so light that I can walk around without makeup. I am definitely not happy with the results of laser resurfacing. What can be done to make these discolorations fade? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
