Peels and laser: Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation can be treated by various chemical peels and lasers aimed at reducing the discoloration. The best prevention is to avoid sun exposure when dealing with a new incision or scarring of any type (acne, etc). The risks of peels and lasers are minimal if provided by a knowledgeable practioneer.
