Depends on type: Erythema multiforme usually goes away within 6 weeks. It can persist into the chronic form. It can come and go. Many causes have been identified, and the prognosis is dependent on treating the trigger (infection, immunization, medication). If the cause was a herpes infection, then treating the herpes can get rid of the em and its flare ups.
Hyperpigmentation?: Like most dermatologic conditions, the best way we dermatologists make this diagnosis is to look at the patient. This coloration can be due to any thing from irritation of skin to medications you're taking and other factors. They are plethoric. My best advice is to see a dermatologist and ask.
Side effect: Liopodissolve treatment solution uses phosphatidylcholine to dissolve fat deposits. The solution also contains other ingredients that may lead to the discoloration. The fda issued a warning in 2010 to medical spas that administer lipodissolve, stating that the drugs used in these treatments have not been proven safe or effective.
Nothing: You should do for a few weeks
Skin discoloration: Skin discoloration. Many causes. Some common and many rare. Sun (uva) causes dna damage which stimulates pigment formation. Hormones (estrogen) can stimulate pigmentation. Fungus. (tinea versicolor) metabolizes oleic acid to form Azelaic Acid which is toxic to melanocytes.

Skin discoloration: This is a change in color to the outer tissue layer of the body. Skin color changes can occur with a variety of medical conditions.
Coconut oil: I would start with using a small amount of coconut oil on the area of skin discoloration after showering. If it is on the face, use it at night after you wash your face before bed. This can do a lot to help moisturize the skin and balance and correct tone and texture problems. Plus, it does not usually cause people to break out with pimples as you might think.
Makeup: How much makeup do you wear? Makeup has a sunblock in it.
Sunblock/BBL therapy: Sun burn discoloration can be a pink or brown color and if you use sunblock over a few weeks to months, it will settle. If not settling then there were likely other problems like infection that may have prolonged the inflammation. Rarely, broad based light (bbl) treatments may be needed to lighten the area.See 1 more doctor answer
