Hello,

I had a Profractional Treatment and MicroLaser Peel 4 days ago

and have a few questions.

Having an asian skin, I think I am more prone to hyperpigmentation

than other people.

I am seeing very pinkish spots/areas after the treatment.

It happened where the peeling process is complete.

(1)could they lead to so-called Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation?

Are they going to be permanent scars?

Also, I am breaking out quite bad due to applying Aquaphor

heavily for 3-4 days.

(2)Would it be safe to switch to Cetaphil Moisturizer instead?

(3)Please let me know how I could manage those break-outs.

(4)Also, would it be safe to wash my hair?

I know it sounds yuck but..I haven't washed my hair for 4 days

Thank you very much for your comments.

I Have Asian skin as well.I was going to try the fraxel re:pair but my doc was a little concerned about the risk of PIH.It may be too early to tell in your case just after 4 days.Many docs I spoke to said PIH is not permanent most of the time and the condition shouldnt last more than 6 months.Did ur doc warn u of the risk of PIH?I thought micropeel is not for scarring but thermascan is.Please update us on your progress.I'd like to learn more about your treatment.
