70% Glycolic Peel burned my skin and the hyperpigmentation is still visible after 2 years. Will laser treatment help? (Phtoo)

Laser and PIH after glycolic burn

I think that a diagnosis will need to be made with careful examination as to where the pigmentation is, as well as any concomitant skin conditions like melasma. Low dose lasers such as the picosure focus or nanosecond long wavelength 1064 QSL can help fade the pigmentation. All the best,
