Hi desperate_gy,

Sorry to hear that you still have the redness. Would you mind telling us your skin color (easy to tan or not) and describe your healing process? Is your skin lighter than before? Who performed your dermabrasion? How extensive is your hyperpigmentation?

I had my dermabrasion by Dr. Yarborough 6 months post op. My redness fades very slowly (still very visible like a sunburn) and my skin is much lighter than before.

Around month 3, I still had some brown streaks on my cheek and forehead. As instructed by the doctor (after he saw my pictures), I used Tri-Luma (a bleaching cream with Retinol and a weak steriod / cortisone added) on the hyperpigmented area for a few weeks. Because my skin was still very sensitive, the retinol irriated it so I stopped using it. In time, the browness faded a lot, although you can still see it if you look close enough under some lighting.

Why don't you talk to your dermatologist and ask him if bleaching cream is suitable for your hyperpigmentation?

Thanks, and good luck.
