Can I Use Topical Lightener to Even out Mixed Hypo + Hyperpigmented Skin Following IPL Burn?
Hi, my forearms were badly burned and extensively blistered during an IPL, (2nd degree). I now have new, white skin covering about 80% of the area interlaced with the olive-toned, untouched skin. I'm thinking of using a topical lightener on the darker skin, which stands out in stripes/grid lines against the squares of injured skin. But it seems impossible not to touch the hypopigmented skin with the lightener & I'm afraid those areas will then never re-pigment. Any suggestions? Thank you, Julie
