No Difference...will Cause Hyperpigmentation - Canada

I was told fraxel will get rid of melasma and so tried the four treatments. Hated the experience...blah! Got hyperpigmentation after the first two treatments but then doc prescribed hydrocortizone alone for the first week following treatment followed by a topical cream without Retin A to use until the next treament. This time my skin did not hyperpigment as much and healed quickly...returned to original color (even brighter) within 2-3 weeks. However, it has been 2.5 months since my last (4th) treatment, the glow is gone, the pigment/melasma is still there - basically no difference from when I first started. Save your money and find a good foundation instead.
