Do You Recommend FX Laser for Sun Damage on Lower Legs?

I have had 2 IPL treatments with no improvement. Would you recommend an FX laser treatment? which one, Active, Deep, or Total?

Active FX Laser for Sun Damage on Lower Legs?

+1

Thank you for your question. I would recommend V-Beam or Alexandrite.  Both are effective on leg spots provided it is pigment. See a Board Certified Dermatologist or Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an evaluation, and you will have to minimize sun exposure.  I hope this helps!

Active FX on light settings works great

+1

We have been doing off-face therapy with the ActiveFX on very low density with great results. We have treated the neck, chest, hands, arms for sun damage and see improvement with one treatment.

Most patients will need 2 or 3 treatments spaced out to see maximal results but even with one you will see decreased sun damage. We love the ActiveFX laser!

Hope this helps.
