Skin Darkening Around the Lips and Chin Area After Fraxel Dual
I am Asian and had Fraxel dual 8 days ago to remove some brown spots located on the side of my face and some freckles on my cheek. Right after the procedure, my skin was oozing and when I got home, about 4-5 hours later, started crusting (Not what I expected). Now 8 days later, after my skin has completely peeled off, my chin and skin around my lips are darker. I am using Obagi Nu-Derm Clear bleaching cream as recommended by the doctor. Will this skin darkening effect go away? Is this normal?
