Hyperpigmentation Or Scarring?

So I'm going to a dermatologist in the next few days, but does this look like Scarring or Hyperpigmentation? Thanks everyone

I honestly wouldn't even say those are hyperpigmentation or scars. They just look like erythema caused by the inflammation of the spots. You should look into the baby brush method, just remember be gentle and wear sunscreen and moisturize. Those spots will go away in 1-3 months I promise.

I used to have something similar a few months ago. It's PIH, but there could be some indents there too. All of them are almost clear now, and I did nothing to treat it because I'm on Accutane.

Don't worry, those should fade up in time. I know you probably heard this a gazillion times, but it actually happens. I'll post some pics when I get the chance!

The dark red color is hyperpigmentation. It should eventually go away, but it could take years without treatment.

It's impossible to tell from these pictures, but I'd bet you also have some atrophic scarring also. Probably ice picks. But the scars will be colorless.
