Evening out Skin Tone After Fraxel Laser?

I developed hypopigmentation spots after 2 Fraxel Laser treatments. It is very obvious it was due to the treatment as you can see small round hypopigmentation spots where the laser was used. I have the beginning of Rosacea as well. I am beginning to use Obagi a couple of times a week to try and even out my uneven skin tone. How would you recommend evening out my skin tone?

Management of Post Fraxel Laser Resurfacing Pigmentation Problem


You should seek assistance from a board-certified dermatologist who may review strict sun protection, a customized skin care routine incorporating topical hydroquinone, tretinoin, glycolic acid and/or vitamin C serum. With your history of post-treatment hypopigmentation, you should consider more conservative procedures such as microdermabrasion and/or IPL photofacial treatments.
