Hypopigmentation after Laser Burn

January 15, 2008
Hi Dr. Rivkin,

I was burned by a Dr. with his laser. Now I have little white circles on my chest. Is there anythin that I can do? I try to put makeup on it, but...


Hi,
that is a difficult problem. i'm sorry.
there really isn't anything out there i know of to effectively repigment a hypopigmented area, especially after a laser burn. microdermabrasion can help blur the borders so that the spots do not stand out as much from the surrounding skin. active fx or fraxel may help, but i'm not sure - we're still investigating these lasers for hypopigmentation. i think you should do microdermabrasion about 5 times or so and see if you get benefit. if its not enough, maybe try a bit of active fx.
i'd love to know how it goes.
