Fraxel for hyperpigmentation

Although there is a risk of developing hyperpigmentation from the Fraxel, or any, laser, there is a possiblility of improvment. You should use a strong lightening cream but there is no one best cream. Some have steroids which can cause too much lightening of the surrounding skin and can induce stretch marks or atrophy in certain body sites.Some people react to strong hydroquinone creams with irritation, or even allergy. Trial and error may be the best but ask your doctor for suggestions with the cream.
