I would begin a combination of fractional lasers, Melapeels, and Melarase AM and Melarase PM creams. Best, Dr. KaramanoukianLos Angeles
Thank you for your question. Your post op experience is not uncommon and is no cause for concern. You should consult with your single or double board certified facial plastic surgeon for treatment, which will most likely include the application of a topical ointment. Best wishes,
You will be fine. Use a preparation of Retin A and Hydroquinone daily and it will lighten. If still more need laser can be applied to further reduce the red. My Best, Dr Commons
Your photo suggests post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, or a darkening of the skin after an injury or inflammatory disorder trauma. It is mostly observed in darker skin types, and is typically a temporary phenomenon--although it can take several months to a year+ to resolve. Your best next step is to follow-up with your treating physician to discuss treatment options; these usually include practicing good sun protection (daily sunscreen, hats, etc.) and a topical bleaching agent, such as hydroquinone or kojic acid. Best of luck.
