Laser Burns and Treatment

I suggest posting a photos and getting a formal consultation.  Peels are rarely the treatment for post inflammatory hyperpigmetnation.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Laser Burns

Without a photo of the laser burns it is impossible to give the proper advice.  Chemical peels may cause irritation to the burn. Please post photos with questions again.  Best, Dr. Green

Post laser burns

The burns have to be totally healed and without seeing you it is impossible to give specific advise but the use of a topical steroid would be advised first. Discuss possible peel after using steroid and then bleaching cream such as hydroquinone and or Konica acid
