Skin bleaching to even out skin after IPL burn?? (photos)
Los Angeles, CA
1 year ago
I went to see a dermatologist today regarding my hyper and Hypopigmentation from IPL burns I had 4 weeks ago. He suggested I use on my entire face a skin bleaching compound of Hydroquinone, retin a and a steroid to even out my whole face. Any doctor suggestions? Should I do this? Is there any other skin lighteners without Hydroquinone I can use? I'm worried about the side effects such as more pigment since I have tan Hispanic skin. Any suggestions for the Hypopigmentation? Tar? Latisse? UVB?

Melarase creams and IPL burns
I would consider using a combination of Melarase creams and light chemical peels to help even out the color of your forehead.
