Clear + Brilliant Laser or IPL
The Clear + Brilliant laser (SOLTA) offers fractional resurfacing with minimal downtime. This laser will, as the name implies, brighten and improve skin's complexion by stimulation of collagen. The Permea handpick for this device can also help to lighten dark spots and even out complexion. Similarly, IPL treatments can improve skin pigmentation and clarity with minimal downtime. It's important, in both cases, that you continue regular use of SPF and quality home care products to prevent further damage.
IPL for males
Intense Pulse Light is a good option to brighten up the facial skin. However, you need to stop RetinA before you can undergo that treatment. You also have to make sure you are not of darker skin color, don't have seizure disorder and are not taking the following meds;
Accutane, Tetracycline or St. Johns Wort
