Abstract

Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) developing after cosmetic procedures such as lasers and chemical peels is always a concern, especially in darker skin types. We report two cases of laser-related PIH of the face successfully treated by combined therapy with 578-/511-nm copper bromide laser and light-emitting diodes (LED). Good cosmetic results were achieved in both patients. The side effects during and after treatment included a mild stinging and redness, but these were resolved within several days without any treatment. Combined 578-/511-nm copper bromide laser with LED provided safe and effective treatment for post-laser pigmentation in Korean patients.
