How long does it take to heal the hyperpigmentation that has occurred due to deep removal of skin tags through Radiocautery. I am a medical professional so please answer me in medical terms.

Usually takes about 1 to 2 weeks.
Usually the excessive pigment reduces in 3 to 6 weeks with local cream applications. If the pigment is deep and doesnt resolve, it may need to be treated with QS Lasers.

Lybrate-user, 1. If the area is exposed one, sun exposure prevention and sunscreen application is a must. Certain cream may be tried, but if no result, lasers may be considered.
