Hyperpigmentation In Indented Scars

Recommended Posts

Posted

Hello, I have red/brown discoloration in my indented scars. I know my acne scars are indented and they aren't just only hyperpigmentation. The hyperpigmentation in my indented scars make it look worse and I can live with the indents. Will the discoloration ever fade? Its been about 5 months already for most of them. Thanks!

If they're red (PIE) - get vbeam

If they're brownish (PIH) - try light chemical peels

So they won't fade on their own over time?

sure they will, but it can take years. Vbeam speeds things up dramatically

dont try no chemical peels can lead too more problems especially if you put it over an active pimple or scab. just let it fade and wear sunscreen they fade i promise. dont stress.
