The Skin Looks White In Certain Parts After Laser Treatment?
In the morning I want to ask, I have done laser treatment for 6 days in certain areas, it looks very white, if it is natural and the skin will return evenly or not.
Hello Yee Na, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Laser is one of the methods used to treat several skin conditions such as removing spots, acne scars, leveling the surface of the skin, reducing wrinkles to even out skin tone. Every medical action certainly has risks and side effects. One of the side effects of the laser is that the skin becomes whiter at some point after therapy (post-inflammatory hypopigmentation). Hypopigmentation conditions that are not too severe in general can improve within a few weeks after inflammation due to laser therapy is cured. Therefore, it is advisable to consult with the doctor who treats you (because you know more about the skin condition of each patient) and follow the doctor's recommendations for skin care (for example using an anti-inflammatory cream to speed up the healing process). If after several weeks have not disappeared, you can ask your doctor about other treatment options such as facial creams that stimulate skin pigments, chemical peels or photodynamic therapy.
It is recommended to use sunscreen morning to evening to protect the skin. Read this article about hypopigmentation to increase knowledge.
