Melarase creams for dark scars
Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation can occur after chronic inflammation. Although a consultation is required, skin lighteners may help with the darkening of the skin. A consultation will help determine if your condition is actively inflamed. Our office specializes in scar treatment and we utilize Melarase creams for pigmentation.
