Treatment for Hyperpigmented Scar on Dark Skin?
- Asked by Austin21 in California

Hyperpigmented scar on nose from when I accidentally scrapped the tip of my nose. Is there a treatment you would recommend?
It's been about 6 months and I've tried lightening creams of all sorts which didn't seem to be working. I've read Laser treatments aren't good because I have a darker complexion.
Certain prescription medications may be beneficial including a retinoid (tretinoin, adapalene, tazarotene), azelaic acid, low-strenth cortisone cream, hydroquinone. I would consult in person with a board certified dermatologist or facial plastic surgeon in your area.
