Pigment loss due to radiation
Doctor Answers 1
How long has it been since the completion of your radiation therapy? I ask because pigmentary changes can evolve for several months after treatment, and you may need to give the skin more time to heal. If your pigment loss is permanent, your treatment options are cover-up make-up or medical tattooing. Research an experienced tattoo artist with lots of scar camouflage tattoo experience, to get a better feel for your treatment options. Good luck!
