I had a peel 3 weeks ago, its left very dark blotches all over my skin. I've tried exfoliating etc but nothing yet - I've got my money back but how can I get rid of these 'burn like' scars

Hello,

The lesions that you have described sounds like scars with post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The treatment for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment. But these should be used after a dermatologist’s evaluation. If it still persists then you can go in for laser treatment, Chemical peeling or microdermabrasion. Avoid picking, harsh scrubbing, and abrasive treatments unless prescribed by a dermatologist during this period.

I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
