I am sorry about your complication. The blood from the hematoma would have stained all the facial tissues. It will take a long time to resolve. I would not do lasers now. I would wait 6 months. If the discoloration is brown, hydroquinone and other skin lightening treatments will help. You should see slow, steady improvement - as long as that continues, things should work out. Best wishes.
