Is BBL Enough to Remove my Pigmentation?

I am a very fair skinned 30 year old who has had multiple BBL treatments for some brown sun spots on my face. The treatments have been effective, but they continue to bring more pigmentation to the surface (pigment that was not visible previously). I use sun protection everyday to prevent future damage, but am curious if it will ever get rid of the spots completely or I should try a different (more effective) method.

Many dark spots are stubborn and the slightest sun exposure despite good sunscreens can bring back dark spots quickly or make the treatments less effective.  Fraxel Restore or dual laser, along with lightening creams may be needed to help reduce your colored spots.
