Hi All,

Used too strong a TCA solution on my chest and unfortunately it depigmented in a few spots and hyperpigmented in others. It's been about 2 months and I don't see signs of the pigment returning. What are my options? Hoping I can fix this TIA.

Check with your derm or plastic surgeon consult for laser treatments that may stimulate your melanocytes and repigment the problem areas.

@talkinboutskin this happened to me
After a steroid injection for a different issue and it took appx 6 months for the color to return, but what my derm prescribed at the time were tacrolimus ointment and surprisingly a steroid cream (i forget which one). I was afraid to use the steroid cream more than a handful of times but I believe the tacrolimus helped a lot. Patience, however hard, is key with hypopigmentation. Hope this helps.
