2 Weeks After Fraxel 1927, Developed a Big Patch of Dark Pigment on Cheekbone

Fraxel 1927 done 2 weeks ago. After all peeling is gone, now there is a patch of dark pigment in the shape of a triangle, with straight edges on the cheek. Looks like a burning mark of an iron. Will that go away?

Make sure you followup with your doctor. Only in person can this pigmentation be confirmed and evaluated for treatment. Most postinflammatory hyperpigmentation is temporary but can take months to clear with the appropriate treatment.
