Hi, I had a Fraxel:Restore treatment a few days ago. The day after my treatment, I had to be outside for about 30-45 minutes running errands. I was very vigilant in putting on sunblock, as well as covering my face with a hoodie throughout the time I was outside. Did I increase my risk of hyperpigmentation by doing this? Thanks Thanks

Hi Silverspoon, As long as you limit your exposure to the sun, wear strong physical sunblock and protective clothing, you should be okay. Follow your treating physician's instructions. Good luck and be well. Dr. P
