You should try a 1 mm dermastamp and stamp the hypopigmented area every ten days. There is a good chance it will improve. Fist try the dermastamp somewhere else on the face (on the side) to see how your skin reacts to it.

It should be OK but it is always good to do a test patch. After stamping, there maybe some hyperpigmentation that will soon disappear.

After stamping, you must protect it from the sun with a high factor sunscreen lotion and if you can, avoid the sun completely for at least many
hours after stamping.

The area above and around the lips is very sensitive and you may need a numbing cream.
