PIH Treatment

Thank you for submitting your pictures. The spots that are pictured, appear to look like PIH. However, it is best to get a history of where these came from and how long they have been there, before a diagnosis can be made. There are a variety of medical grade skin care products and peels as well as lasers that can improve  skin. It is best to see a specialist in your area to see what is best for you. Some people are not candidates for lasering and can even make pigmentation worse.
