And sometimes longer. I have a PIH spot from an accident with my inline skates close to my left elbow. This occured more than three years ago, and the PIH spot is just fading away (meanwhile only visible if You know its place).

During the recent past i had to take oral cortison against a sudden and massive breakout of Neurodermitis. That also helped with the hyperpigmentation. But to me PIH is never ever any reason to take drugs i might need in the future agains something really serious.

A slight addition to the causes of PIH: even new hairs breaking through the skin can cause PIH, and it can also occur immediately outside of an epilated spot. I see this from time to time when i do fine hair on the upper lip (but one time also in the throat area during a beard removal): hyperpigmentation just outside the area i actually did.

Me too, Beate. 3-years ago I have a large skin cancer on my face that required a skin graft. The surgeon cut out a 6-inch long piece of skin from my belly ... after 3-years, I still have "PIH" but it's slowly going away.

A surgical incision is not the same as the minuscule "dot-like" injury from electrology.
