Thank you for your question. I would suggest scheduling a consultation with an aesthetician to asses the damage to your skin and give you recommendations for treatment options. Most likely this is not permanent but it will take some time for the discoloration to fade. Make sure you are wearing sunscreen and speak with your aesthetician about lightening products such as hydroquinone.
