White Patches After Fraxel Laser

I had one session of Fraxel a few weeks ago and had white patches all over my face afterwards. What are these white patches? Also Dr. refused to do in between eyebrows and when I asked him why he said just didn’t.

Don't worry about the white patches after Fraxel. This is only a temporary area of hypopigmentation. It will resolve. Even in cases where there is significant hypopigmentation it is only inflammatory and not true dyspigmentation (complete loss of pigment) I can't answer why the MD wouldn't treat in between the eyes.
