Discolouration of scar after laser (Photo)

It's been 2 year , I took last sittings of fractional laser. Total 4z Earlier it was not visible from distance. Now lighter color is much noticeAble. the length of scar increased. treatment I took made it lighter than original skin. I guess original top most skin has burned.inner skin is visible. Depth has decreased little but length has increased as the laser has burnt the top most layer is skin a little extra. M very upset. I thought color of scar will be same as skin color after some time.

Discoloration/Scar/Dark Skin--Requires a Combination of Fractional Laser Resurfacing, RF (sublative/viva), microneedling/PRP

This can be difficult to treat but often sees improvement with fractional laser (Clear + Brilliant/ Fraxel) or radiofrequency (sublative/ viva).  I often combine with microneedling/PRP.  Find a laser expert for treatment.  Best, Dr. Emer.
