Does the Isolaz laser for acne bring up brown pigment? If so, shouldn't patients be made aware of that?
Does Isolaz Cause Hyperpigmentation?

Isolaz Does Not Cause Brown Discoloration (Hyperpigmentation)
In my experience, Isolaz when done properly does not cause hyperpigmentation (brown pigment). We perform a lot of Isolaz treatments in our office and I have never had a patient experience brown discoloration; however, they all have temporary (15-30 minutes) of redness immediately following the treatment. If the brown pigment persists, I recommend you follow up with whomever did the treatment. Good luck!
