Deep Indented Scars Can Be Elevated With Subcision & Volumizing Fillers; Microneedling For Color & Texture Problems
Forget the lasers. In my experience, they have largely been supported by little more than device manufacturer marketing hype and not much hard science. In addition, light-based therapies may cause pigment irregularities in persons of color. From the photos, it would appear that there is a relatively wide and deep depression and perhaps (difficult to determine from a 2-dimensional photo) some textural, as well as color abnormalities.Frankly, you would do well to consult with a board certified aesthetic dermatologist. In such circumstances, I would generally think it wise to stop the hydroquinone, which is no doubt contributing to uneven pigmentation. Since there is a depression, this should be elevated, which may be accomplished with the use of a volumizing filler, supplemented, if necessary, by subcision. Finally, remaining pigmentary problems can be addressed with medical microneedling, which has been found safe to use in people of color. Wishing you the best of luck.
