Had No Effect on my Scars and Caused Hyperpigmentation (Olive Skin Tone)

I had pixel done on a variety of scars some...

I had pixel done on a variety of scars some indented and some raised about a month ago. I was told everything was supposed to heal in 2-3 weeks however I am left with dark hyperpigmentation around the areas treated.

I have olive skin, yet I was told that despite my skin tone I should be fine becasue the Pixel would not cause hyper or hypo pigmentation. I am really botehred. Why did I spend so much money on this? NONE of my scars improved in the slightest bit, even the ones taht were "superficial." Howver I am beyond worrying about that now, what I am worried about is the moderate to severe hyperpigmentation left behind.

I dont reccomend this laser to anyone. :(

Hi, I'm considering getting this procedure to reduce the appearance of acne marks (ice pick and hyperpigmentation). I also have a darker skin tone and am very worried about hyperpigmentation as a result of this treatment. Just curious if you were prescribed a hydroquinone cream to use for a few weeks prior to and after the treatment.

HE does not explain the risks of the procedure to you and he gives you wrong information. Staff is horrible and rude.
