Picosure fractional laser for ethnic skin - Asian skin types
Sun spots and age spots are very difficult to treat in ethnic skin types. This is because the opposite outcome can occur- namely skin can darken. Treatments must be exact and in this case, the device or laser is very important. IPL should not be used in this skin type, my preference is the Picosure Focus. This is a form of fractional laser resurfacing that delivers a scatter of picosecond pulses. Note, apart from pigment removal, the skin is firmer, with less wrinkles and much better texture. This patient only received one treatment. Most patients require 2-3 sessions to achieve this outcome. Dr Davin Lim. Dermatologist, Brisbane.
