Fractional lasers, clear + brilliant and microneedling/prp have been shown to be helpful in patients with hypopigmentation. I suggest seeing an expert in scarring for a formal consultation. Best, Dr. Emer

Please consult a board certified dermatologist for proper wound care to prevent hyperpigmentation and scarring.  Avoid anything irritating or the sun at present.  If any hyperpigmentation results you can utilize bleaching creams or peels later on. Best, Dr. Green
