Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello. Thanks for your query.

You seem to have developed Post-inflammatory Hyperpiegmentation , which is common after a Laser procedure, specially if sun protection was not strictly adhered to.

If I was the treating doctor I would suggest that you use a broad spectrum sunscreen, throughout the day. Your sunscreen should cover both UV A as well as UV B part of the spectrum. You may find a sunscreen OTC from a drug store or you may ask for a prescription for it from your dermatologist.

For the spots, I would have normally recommended you a skin lightening cream containing one or more of the following ingredients e.g Kojic acid, Glycolic acid, Arbutin, Hydroquinone etc. These ingredients are available in various combination in a cream formulation. These creams are prescription products and you may visit your dermatologist for the same.

Regards
