punch graft

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I did punch graft on the ice-pick scar four month ago and the grafted skin is still dark and red now. I would like to know the pigment is going to fade to normal skin color over time? Is the hydroquinone cream going to help? I will fully appreciate any advices. Wish you all good.

I did dermal grafts ( same as punch grafts but without punching ) an year back and I too experienced that it takes a while for grafts to blend with the surrounding skin. Some blended quite fast within 8-10 weeks but some were brown even after 4-5 months. I used prescription bleaching cream, Triluma ( HQ + Retino A ) and that seemed to have helped but it needs to be used for at least 6-8 weeks to see results.
