hi , hypopigmentation is not uncommon after laser or electrodissication procedures due to melanocyte damage . Repigmentation can likely take weeks to years. Cosmetic camouflage with micropigmenatation can be done until repigmentation goals are met. UV light exposure has also been reported to expedite repigmentation..consult dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon near by you.. wish you good luck
