Unfortunately hyperpigmented areas will never go away completely, they will lighten. I would stay away from the Fraxel laser as it might be making matters worst. Why don’t you try a pigment inhibitor cream, which you should be able to speak to a Dermatologist about and they can prescribe one for you. I would try that for about 4 weeks and see what the difference is. Try and stay out of the sun while using pigment inhibitors. I would definitely try peels again. Why don’t you research the Cosmelan or Dermamalan peels on Skin & Body Renewal’s website. This peel is fantastic for stubborn pigment. You might find that it will be quite effective for your hyperpigmented areas. GOOD LUCK!
