LASER treatment. First, LASER is not IPL. They are different in property and intensity. Rhinoplasty has nothing to do with light-based skin treatment.

Is there any efficient treatment for stevens-johnson syndrome hyperpigmentation? It's been a year since my daughter had sjs, but now she has hyperpigmentation all over her body. Is there any specific type of cream or laser treatment that would help?

Hyperpigmentation . Hyperpigmentation from a rash or generalized condition can take time to fade. It will typically fade if there are not subsequent new eruptions of the condition. To help fade them, though, i would recommend daily sunscreen and avoidance of the sun (the sun will keep the marks dark), a fade scream such as hydroquinone. Try that for a few months. If not improved, consider an ipl laser treatment, although if you have darker skin that won't typically work very well. I hope that helps a little! Read more...
