Just a word of CAUTION!
If it is indeed lupus, an autoimmune disorder, you should avoid laser treatments. My brother works for a board certified plastic surgery center & when I recently consulted there for IPL treatments for sunspots, I was told since I have systemic lupus, they will not treat anyone with autoimmune disorders or connective tissue diseases with lasers.
I'm now looking into microdermabrasion as an alternative treatment.
