Advice on laser treatment for brown spots on lip?

Asked by Neva

I have brown spots on my lips because I use to pick at my lips when they were chapped. Is there any way to remove those scars, as they are very dark? I heard you could remove it with laser at the GP, but someone told me it isn’t possible on the lips because the skin is too delicate and will cause bleeding. Any advice?

    If the dark spots from picking don’t go away after six months while also using sunscreen on your lips (and not picking), then see a dermatologist who specializes in laser surgery. There isn’t a problem “lasering” lips when done properly; the laser’s energy just needs to be adjusted for the lips.
