I am mid 50's and use a lot of sunscreen and never sunbathe. However I golf and get some sunspots on the side of my face outside hat area. I have had a few different ipl/laser treatments. What laser do you recommend - I read about scion, Star, ematrix (no way, too painful). Photo below. I also have loss of pigment on my lower legs with brown spots which I had treated last year but same story as above. I would appreciate any advice.

Correcting Hyperpigmentation with PicoFOCUS
The PicoFOCUS gently delivers bursts of energy deep in the dermis without causing harm to the overlaying skin. The pulses work to break up pigment and stimulates new collagen and elastin production. Your body’s own healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and ramps up skin turnover. We sometimes pair the PicoFOCUS with a Pelleve treatment for additional skin tightening.
We recommend finding an experienced physician in your area. Treatment prices vary by market.
