I am about 18 or 19 days post photofacial/photorejuvenation. My hyperpigmention is gone and most of my hypopigmented spots are blending in with the rest of my skin. However, I have two laser shaped lighter spots on my forehead temple. These areas were definitely the most traumatized after the procedure. They seem to be getting better, but I want to know how long it usually takes for hypopigmented spots to color up after the procedure. I am very concerned they will never go back to normal.
How Long Does It Take for Hypopigmentation Spots to Go Away After a Photofacial?

Photofacials will not treat hypopigmentation areas. I would encourage you to wait a few months for pigment to return. Make sure to protect your skin with sun screen and minimizing sun exposure.
A FF will not remove hypopigmentation spots, only remove the dark marks around them. You may need 3-6 months for the pigment to normalize. Avoid the sun and use spf 30 or more.
