    Hi Terri,

    I am one of the victims of this procedure too. I have been going around the internet for support and came across your article. Thank you for that, it gives hope 🙂 I was also wondering if the white marks due to hypopigmentation ended up resolving with time or are they still visible ?

    Kind Regards,

      Dear Anna,

      I’m so sorry! My streaks all went away completely. It took probably about two full years for me, maybe even up to three. My memory, like the lines, is fading. I have no residual physical or visual effects. Which is a huge relief! I used the Biafine cream which I have used ever since for burns because it seemed so helpful. And I kept my legs out of the sun that first year. I wish you well and do hope your hypopigmentation resolves too!

    Hi Terri !

    Thank you so much for your diligent response! I have actually used the same ritual. Thick layers of Biafine for a month to help get quickly rid of all the crusting! For what is coming, I think I will follow your advice and stay religiously out of the sun for 12 months to avoid any further complications. Your answer gave me lots of positivity, I will sleep better tonight !!
    Thank you again for sharing your experience, it means a lot and fingers crossed!

    Kind Regards,
