Dark Spots After Yag Laser Treatment

I got dark spots after a Yag laser tightening treatment. I never had dark spots before. Now I have dark areas on my face. Why did this happen and what can I do about it?

The dark spots can be improved dramatically by using a retinoid and hydroquinone.  Ask your doctor to prescribe these three to four weeks before your next treatment.
