Hi, you have already mentioned that you had compound nevi. Compound nevi is basically a deep nevi that involves the epidermis and dermis both. There are chances of having scarring or pigmentation after radiofrequency and this must have been explained by your doctor. If melalite 15 is not working, some other potent creams can be used to tackle pigmentation. Even chemical peels or lasers can be done to reduce pigmentation. However what would suit your skin best can only be suggested when your skin has been thoroughly analysed. In the meanwhile, use a good sunscreen and take vitamin c supplements. Take care

this residual pigmentation might be incomplete removal of compound nevus or post surgical pigmentation. either revision surgical excision or radiofrequency removal of the residual nevus need to be done .
