I have acne and a lot of scarring on my face from a breakout that occurred last month that is hyperpigmentation and it is lowering my self-confidence. I am trying very hard to find a treatment that is effective and works quickly. I have attached photos for your reference.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I saw your clinical picture (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
You have more dark marks from acne. We call them PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). This takes time to fade off.
Once there is scarring, the most effective treatment for scars is a fractional CO2 laser.
There are medications to lighten the pigment.
