In brief: It's about pigment

Hydroquinone works by decreasing the pigment cells in your skin.
Let your doctor look at the scarring to determine if this is redness from blood vessels or is it pigment associated with pih or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. If it is pigment, hydroquinone will be your ticket.
