PIH after treatment
Thank you for your question chispa.8. Kybella is a great treatment to address the double chin. Most people require two to four treatments, sometimes up to six treatments. I tell my patients to plan on undergoing at least two treatments before assessing results. Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is seen in darker skin types and can occur after cuts, burns, sun exposure, laser treatments, ice, etc. PIH can be treated with a variety of topical products including hydroquinone, kojic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, vitamins C and E, arbutin, licorice extract, bearberry extract, and more. Treatments include IPL, fractional laser, and chemical peels. Strict sun avoidance and sunscreen are critical. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
