  • How is Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation treated?
  • What are the immediate post treatment and long term results?

Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation does not pose any medical concern, however when pronounced it is considered unsightly. Treatment of Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation involves Q Switch laser treatment and/or Fractora Fractional RF treatment each often in conjunction with lightening Skin peels, cosmeceutical products which may include lightening agents, vitamin A, C and Niacinamide and diligent use of an effective sunscreen. See online cosmeceutical products for more information.

Immediately post treatment the Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation may appear darker or unchanged in colour depending on the laser modality used. The area will feel warm and mildly inflamed immediately after treatment and is expected to subside within a few hours of treatment. Over the following weeks, the area will fade in colour as some areas of pigment will be gradually removed by the skin’s natural processes.

A comprehensive consultation with a MLAC Senior Dermal Clinician or Cosmetic Registered Nurse allows for proper assessment and treatment plan development. Please call our clinical experts on (03) 8686 5786.
