You may have a burn: Or pigmentation. I would see dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. But in the meantime you can certainly try some growth factors in OTC products to help heal and 2% hydroquinone with retinol or hydroxy acid if the mark is dark to lighten it.

A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period, or after having a "weird" period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. ...Read more

Where is filler injected to lift the brows up? My dr injected in 3spots above along the tail of my brow. When will I see a difference? I had 0.250mls

Immediately: Your doctor injected filler to lift your brow. Talk to your doctor as to what to expect and when to see results. Filler should have immediate effects. There should also be temporary swelling as this is artificial material. The effects overall should wear off eventually and you may require additional treatments over your lifetime. You should ask what lift means versus filling out. Hope helps ...Read more
