Dark Tummy Tuck Scar Can Be Lightened with IPL or Laser
Thank you for your question. A dark scar, called Hyper pigmentation, is common in surgical scars in darker skinned patients.
Early pigmentation can be treated with topical Cortisone and Hydroquinone, a skin bleach.
However, dark Tummy Tuck Scars older than 6 weeks usually require more aggressive treatment. I use IPL-Intense Pulsed Light which works very well. Lasers can also be used
