Hyperpigmentation Cessation with Lightening creams and aerolase laser
This can happen after any laser treatments. Lightening creams and aerolase laser does well to help this. I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer.
Hypopigmentation from tattoo removal
Light spots are hypopigmentation and are hard to improve. Removing a tattoo with surgery is going to leave a scar much worse than what you currently have is my guess. The problem is that there isn't enough loose skin in this area to close the wound after excision often.
