I am a black female who had laser treatment on my legs to minimize the appearance of dark scarring and on my hips to minimize stretch marks three months ago. Now, the areas treated are hypopigmented.

Is hypopigmentation caused by laser exposure always permenant or is it ever temporary? What can I do to help the area improve?

I cannot make a recommendation until I know whether the hypopigmentation was anticipated and whether the skin color will actually return to normal. If hypopigmentation is just something that happens but color is likely to return, then I have no problems recommending this provider. However, if hypopigmentation is permanent, then I would not refer this provider for the treatment of lightening dark scars of dark pigmented individuals.
