Isolaz Laser Burn Marks Turning my Skin White? Why and Will It Go Back to Brown??

Burn Marks From Isolaz
Isolaz is a laser treatment and should be performed in a physician's office under the supervision of a physician. It sounds like whomever performed the treatment did not use the appropriate settings. Most likely the white areas will re-pigment and the skin tone will even out. I would avoid using harsh products like benzoyl peroxide and tretinoin cream until your skin is completely back to normal. Use gentle products only and be very careful with the sun.
