Best Treatment for Olive Skin with Age Spots, Sun Spots, Melasma?
I'm 47, light olive complexion w/ pinkish undertones, brown eyes and dark brown hair; was very active in sports from age 7 through 20's-prior to the emphasis on the importance of sunscreen & sun damage to exposed skin.
After 1 year of 4% hydroq., 0.4 retin A., and 4 IPL Tx's, no significant improvement is noted. The treating dermatologist of IPL(Nashville) states that my tx options are limited, states it's hormone related. Not much available for my skin type/color. A plastic surgeon (Chattanooga) advises against CO2 resurfacing.
Continued HQ and Rentin A have no significant impact. Have you successfully treated cases similar to mine with Fraxel repair?
