I have been doing glycolic acid treatments (30%)...
My dermatologist said that since I have so many age spots on my chest and the summer has been cold, he could do IPL twice to lighten the age spots on my chest - he was pretty surprised at the difference between my face and chest. 10 years difference, in his opinion.
I forgot to take before photos but you can see above a picture of my arm, which has the same age spots as my chest did. I don't know what laser he did, but I know he did it very lightly as I have SUCH sensitive skin. It did not hurt at all and the results were immediate. The age spots are now 50% gone and the skin looks fantastic. I will go one more time but not more, having read all the negative reviews of IPL.
only few tiny "coffee grains"
Dr. Kautz is very open and friendly. Explains everything. Knows my skin is very fragile and sensitive and is cautious. He has over 100 lasers and is a laser specialist, one of the few in Germany. Treats many, many babies with birth defects! Will never let a nurse treat a patient, which seems to be very important, reading the reviews of laser treatments on here.
