Pigmentation after CO2 laser

  Fortunately, this pigmentation you have under the eyes is probably reversible.  I would request that your doctor write a prescription for tretinoin and for 4% hydroxyquinone or for Tri-Luma.

Reducing risk and improving results with Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing and Melarase

+1
Fractional CO2 is a very effective treatment for laser resurfacing of the face, hands, and chest.  Patients are placed on a peritreatment skincare protocol that includes Melapads, Melarase AM, and Melarase PM in my Santa Monica plastic surgery practice.  Melarase AM has four active sunscreens with skin lighteners to reduce the risk of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation.
