What can I do to get rid of dark rings around my eyes from CO2 laser? (Photo)

I had C02 in Oct 2014 & I still have rings around my eyes almost 2 yrs later. I've tried neutrogena dark spot removal, skinceuticals pigment corrector, microdermabrasion, skin peel, MSM cream, age spot serum & hyaluronic face gel & NOTHING. I cannot wear hats now b/c the shadow enhances the dark ring. Concealer helps somewhat but I shouldn't have 2 wear it. I'm currently using retin A .05 cream & it doesn't even make my face red or peel. It's like my skin is no longer absorbing anything.

I would definitely use a combination of Melarase AM and Melarase PM, Melapads, and light chemical peels for the pigmentation. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles

This can be improved with non ablative lasers like clear + brilliant, fraxel, microneedling/PRP, skin care.  I suggest seeing an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.
