Hyperpigmentation after Acne

 
Hi and thank you for sharing your question here! The best option for hyperpigmentation after acne is laser skin resurfacing. It is fast and very effective treatment and it is helpful with the acne scar and collagen stimulation as well. However, if for whatever reason you are not comfortable with the laser treatment, you can try couple of sessions of medical-level chemical peel combined with a strong bleaching medication. I hope it helps and thanks!
