Will my Hyperpigmentation Go Away Soon? How Long? (photo)

The dark spot is due to acne that I picked and the skin healed and now its dark. I picked it twice, but that was 5 months ago. The lighter healing skin is from recent acne tht I popped but didn't pick, I know it'll get darker. Will these dark spots be permanent or will they eventually fade? I've been using meladerm for past 5 weeks and seen little mprovement but nothing drastic.Will the continuation of meladerm relieve me of the dark spot by about October (2months)?

For you situation it looks like you would benefit from a VIPEEL. That treatment removes the first layer of your skin helping with your pigmentation. That procedure is none Invasive, if you’re looking for something a little more you can do laser treatments. You should do your homework on your options. You should see a PS to give your options, Goof luck.
