Will Fraxel help reduce hypopigmentation?

Fraxel . 2 answers . 5 years ago

I have a 4 year old small scrape on my forehead/hair line from a car accident that has healed completely but it's now hypopigmented(almost a tad pinkish). Will this work to bring back the pigment in my skin to blend in with the skin around it?

Fraxel will not get rid of hypopigmentation. It will help get rid of dark spots, but not light spots.
