Deep Fx Left Lines on Face

Thank you for your question. If the lines are pink, then IPL can be very useful. I recommend a pretreatment of HQ and a retinoid for 4 weeks prior to treatment. These lines usually go away in 4-6 months if out of the sun. Use sunscreen faithfully. I hope this helps.

This can occur and typically resolves with time.  If you have darker skin hydroquinone is recommended with your post laser skin care protocol.   In certain situations  a number of treatments with the sciton microlaser peel over 3 month intervals can help reduce the stamp pattern from the deep fx.
