IPL Treatment for dark spot leftover by a pimple?
Doctor Answers 3
Thank you for your question richtosq1. Acne is a very common condition and PIH (post-inflammatory hyeperpigmentation) can occur after the pimples go away. This is commonly, but incorrectly, referred to as an acne scar. PIH an happen with any type of inflammation such as sun exposure, cuts, burns, skin treatments, etc. PIH can be treated with topical products (hydroquinone, kojic acid, licorice extract, arbutin, vitamin C, hydroxyl acids), chemical peels, laser treatments (IPL, peels, fractional lasers), microdermabration, and microneedling. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
