Treating Dark Skin from Hip and Buttocks Silicone Injections?

Dark areas and dark skin after silicone injection
I see this very often with silicone injections. The pigmentation represents a hyperinflammatory state with deposition of melanin by melanocytes. There is often increased vascularity. I treat these with TAC injections and anti-inflammatories. At this time, I would control the skin discoloration with topical Melaquin AM and Melaquin PM until resolution of the inflammation.
