Fraxel laser and Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation NYC
It sounds like you were not the proper candidate for Fraxel for your acne scars. eMatrix is better for patients with darker skin since it is "color blind" and avoids hyperpigmentation. I would not consult a dermatologist who specializes in lasers for possible bleaching creams and chemical peels to help resolve this PIH. Best, Dr. Green
Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation -- Lightening Creams, Aerolase, Beta Peels, Microneedling/PRP
Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation needs appropriate skin care and peels. I suggest you see an expert for treatment. Best, Dr. Emer.
This is a good treatment for PIH. This will occur in darker skin types and I pretreat with hydroquinone in most cases. In lighter skin, it is related to sun exposure after treatment. It should reverse with treatment. I usually limit Triluma to about 6-8 weeks.
