Loss of Pigmentation after BRAVA? #breastimplants
The Brava is a new system so you will not find much about this. I can only ascertain that you basically caused a wound to the areola that eventually scarred. If it has been more than 6 months you will not likely get the pigment back. You might need a tattoo to fill in the color.

Sorry to say the color is a t its endpoint in the return to normal. Yes, I have seen this issue with the Brava system though very rarely. Only treatment is accepting or color for tattoo effect. Sorry.
Loss of pigmentation after BRAVA
I have not heard of this as a problem.The scabbing and the loss of pigmentation sounds like some sort of damage to the deep dermis. Some amount of pigment should return with time. Although 6 months is pretty reasonable waiting a little longer may not be such a bad option.

Actually there is not much information on this issue, but it might have been caused by lymphatic or vascular congestion in the areolar tissue. The crusting and loss of the outer or epithelial layer of the skin often results in loss of pigmentation, like a watermark in the injured skin and might be permanent, though recovery of the skin can take place over a year or longer. We would hold off on any treatment such as a tattoo.

Loss of Pigmentation
Although this particular occurrence is not a listed complication for Brava users, dermatitis is, and the skin issues seem to be a possible cause for the pigment changes. If six months have passed without improvement, I would not expect further return of pigment.
Thank you for your question, best wishes.
You might consider having the areola tattooed. Since it has been 6 months and the pigmentation has not returned, it is doubtful it will.
It is unlikely that the pigmentation will return if has not done so by 6 months. Certainly by 12 months you would see the healing completed
