Does Q-switch leave brown spots looking splotchy?

It's hard to tell without a picture. It may be what is called post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It can be treated with bleaching creams and sun protection. It may take 3-6 months for improvement. I recommend following up with your Dr to evaluate and determine follow-up treatments/aftercare, if necessary. I like to use Fraxel lasers for sunspots. Best, Dr. Emer.
