Ask A Doctor Question:
I have hypopigmented scarring on my lips from burns. Is there anything you have that has helped in repgimenting scars? I heard excimer laser may help.
I’m not aware of anything other than tatooing. This can be useful although some of the dyes used for medical tatooing can fade over time.

I am not sure if the Excimer Laser would be helpful as I have no experience with it but I feel that someone with experience with Medical tattooing may be able to help with the hypopigmentation.
