Skin Type: Pigment & Complexion > Hypopigmentation after q-switched laser 532nm KTP, any advice?

I recently have encountered multiple cases of hypo-pigmentation from q-switched laser 532nm KTP treatments on my pts.
I have seen few cases of hyperpigmentation , but hypopigmentation is something new to me.
Can anyone offer any advice how to deal with hypo? How soon can the hypo fade away?

Hi,

I never use 532 on my patients ( Type IV and V ), Indian skin due to the risk of hypo and hyper pigmentation, except a few times with very low fluence on freckles with my Medlite C6. In cases of hypo pigmentation, we almost treat it like vitiligo as post laser hypo pigmentation takes a very long time and lot of times never repigments as well. In most patients, I have got a good response using a fractional laser ( I have the Palomar 1540 ) or as an alternative the Dermaroller helps nicely.
Regards
