I have some dark pigmentation after I had some cryotherapy done. Will Mederma help fade the pigmentation or is there something better?

Mederma for scars
Mederma is topical therapy used to treat scars. The active ingredient is onion extract. I don't recommend it to my patients but I know many people who have had nice results with it. Having said that, it is not effective for treating hyperpigmentation in my experience. I would discuss the problem with the provider who performed the cryotherapy and confirm the diagnosis of hyperpigmentation. You want to make sure that this is not a pigmented lesion or a mole. Then I would use a hydroquinone based therapy.
