Why has my skin become more darker after 5 Picosure treatments?

I am an Asian woman who is 49 years old. After I went to a medical spa to do the Picosure treatment for my brown spots, I wondered why my skin was getting darker. What should I do?

Please consult a board certified dermatologist with expertise in lasers.  Asian skin is very delicate and the Pico is probably not the correct laser for you.  Best, Dr. Green
