Treating Hyperpigmentation

There are many options for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation which include chemical peels, lightening creams and laser treatments.  Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation can take a long time to improve.  My recommendation is to consult with a board certified Dermatologist who specializes in hyperpigmentation.
