Best spot treatment: Rather than shopping by price, you should look for someone who will give you some insight as to why these therapies have not met your expectations. Some expectations are simply unreasonable. Improvement is always the goal, not perfection. A good place to start is the dermatologist (i hope) who did your laser treatment. ...Read more

What can I do for age spots on my face?

What can I do for age spots on my face?

Skin check first.: First, get a skin check. We need to rule out, and specifically treat any precancerous or cancerous lesions. If there are none, then you can look at modalities like ipl, facial peels, and laser peels or laser resurfacing, to improve the brown/ age spots. Retinols and retinoids can be helpful to lighten brown/ age spots. The daily use of an antioxidant sunscreen, on exposed skin cannot be overstated. ...Read more

Sun avoidance: I am sorry to hear about your facial spots.I don't believe any over the counter cream would treat your brown spots.I first advise you stay away from the sun and use a good sunscreen as a preventive measure.

I would advise you speak to the dermatologist who did the zap treatment for help ...Read more

Yes: Intense pulsed light (ipl) is a quick and effective way to fade unwanted skin pigment with little downtime. Permanent removal of unwanted skin pigment is much more difficult without permanently affecting the rest of your skin's natural skin color. Ipl followed by good skin care, sun protection and use of hydroquinone can extend the results of treatment but periodic touch-ups will be necessary. ...Read more

I have a pimples and their spots on my face which cream is best to remove this plz suggest i have a oily skin?

I have a pimples and their spots on my face which cream is best to remove this plz suggest i have a oily skin?

Wash or cream: I would suggest trying a wash and/or cream with benzoyl peroxide as it is easy (at least here) to obtain and tends to work fairly well. If not, salicylic acid works as well but not quite as well for more significant acne. If these don't work, I would suggest a visit with your doctor for prescription options such as a topical retinoid . Good luck! ...Read more

Can i prevent my age spots from getting any worse? I have recently began seeing age spots worsening on my face and hands. I know that this is due to many years in the sun and i now wear sunscreen every time i will be outside for an extended period of time

Can i prevent my age spots from getting any worse? I have recently began seeing age spots worsening on my face and hands. I know that this is due to many years in the sun and i now wear sunscreen every time i will be outside for an extended period of time

I : I would recommend you apply a broad spectrum sunscreen with at least spf 30 every day. In addition, consider using a combination of tretinoin cream with hydroquinone (prescribed by your dermatologist) or a facial system such as obagi which helps blend in discoloration of the skin. Another option would be to have a few of the darker age spots treated lightly with liquid nitrogen which can peel off the surface pigment or consider an intense pulsed light laser treatment. But most important, wear your sunscreen every day! ...Read more
