This morning I woke up to a new vertical line along my right temple. It is a clear demarcation of the laser.

I am not sure when this will stop.
Needless to say the hyperpigmentation has NOT improved in 5 months and now I am worried there will be more damage to come. It's really frightening.
The office has not been very helpful. I went to see the Dermatologist twice after the treatment at 2 weeks and at 4 weeks.

She also indicated that she did not believe she would be able to help remove the hyperpigmentation. She recommended chemical peels but I am too worried about further damage.
