This thread isn't exactly about post-acne hyperpigmentation, but it involves a wound on my face that I'm worried about. So, to start off, I have brown skin, and usually after an acne spot heals on my face I am left with some hyperpigmentation. On Friday I was injured and ended up with a quarter sized mark on my chin. It was a very shallow wound that was pinkish/whitish immediately after with some blood visible (not much, though). It proceeded to make a light scab, and now by today, the scab has almost completely fallen off. I am left with a very subtle pink mark that is quickly proceeding to match my skin color.

So, the healing process went fine and all, but the big question is...if I go out in the sun, will the mark turn dark? I haven't left the house since Friday because my whole right arm is scraped and looks nasty.

What do you guys think? Will I get hyperpigmentation? Will the use of a sunscreen prevent the mark from forming? Or since it healed perfectly will it not even make a mark later on at all?
