I ask patients to start Hydroquinone or Melarase cream immediately after treatment if there is a concern for pigmentation.
I Just Recently Had a Yag Laser Treatment for Brown Spots. How Soon Can I Use Hydroquinone?

Hydroquinones can be resumed a week or two after the Yag
If you have healed completely from the Yag procedure, which typically takes one to two weeks, then you can begin bleaching treatment with hydroquinone.
Can be started as soon as the Yag laser induced scabs fall off
Hydroquinone treatment can be started as soon as the Yag laser induced scabs fall off. This is usually at about 1 week.
