Hyperpigmentation after Laser Hair Removal
Hyperpigmentation after laser hair removal usually is not permanent. The risks of laser treatment include pigment changes and scarring. Permanent side effects are rare. It is a result of your skin producing more melanin in response to the heat from the laser. Your body will work to restore homeostasis and the pigmentation will fade. I advise to have yourself protected from the sun to prevent the dark areas from getting worse.
