Re: Sun Spots

I've been using a skin lightener with hydroquinone for 6 months now and not a bit of improvement. In fact, even though I use sunscreen daily, my brown spots have spread and are worse and darker. I think an (expensive) laser treatment is the only option.

Re: Sun Spots

IPL intense pulsed light. I've had several treatments - look for places that sell them in packages of 5 for a better deal. They are mostly gone or very faded now.

Hi,

Could you tell me where you bought your skin lightener from.

Many thanks,

Karen

Re: Sun Spots

I found a product that combines hydroquinone with a glycolic acid exfoliator, and it has been working pretty well. It is gradual, but I have been using it steadily and remembering to use sunscreen every day, and there is definite improvement. You can find it in regular drug stores and since I'm not allowed to name products, just look in the skin care section and read the ingredients to find glycolic acid listed. It is a skin lightening product for spot treatment.
