Question: Hi doctor, Actually i got a skin treatment done and the doctor injured my skin where there were spots so that new skin can develop on that. That area formed a black scab and now it has been more than 3 weeks that the area is changing colors and is currently dark pink brown. Just wanted to check how much time will it take for the normal skin color to come.
