I used benzoyl perioxide and it has left a burn scar on my face. Please what can I use to clear it up? Is the damage permanent?

There are many options including lasers, peels, skin care and sunprotection. I suggest posting photos and seeing an expert in lasers and hyperpigmentation.  Best, Dr. Emer

Dark scars can be improved with a combination of Plato's Scar Serum, Melarase PM, Melapads, and light chemical peels.
