hi i have an acne issue and i have not heard anything like that before.i reconamend to go and see your doctor about that ok.!
I was hoping a dermatologist would answer my question instead of getting a reply like that lol. but will do though.
Without treatment, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation usually takes about 6 months to resolve and for the skin color to go back to its normal color. Topical treatments with acids and chemical peels can be effective but can take a while for the skin to totally revert to its normal color. Microdermabrasion can also be done, but this might require several sessions. Skin resurfacing using lasers is also an option.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
I will, thank you doctor.
Hey doc, I went to my doctor's office and she told me that the darkening scar that I see on my face, the scarred spot, is actually a scar. She told me that the discoloring is likely to be permanent. I refuse to believe this because I don't think she understands how this happened prior to the scar that I have. This post-inflammatory pigmentation occured when I popped the pimple. My research tells me that PIH it heals within 6 months or more. Doctor, if I were to take a photo or two of my issue, could you take a look?
Did your dark spot eventually fade back to normal color?
