Brown Spots on Face -- IPL, Clear + Brilliant/Fraxel, Eclipse Micropen
IPL (intense pulse light) or BBL (broad band light) are treatments that can help reduce the appearance of brown spots/sun damage. Also, using a hydroquinone or brightening agent pad to help with the all over appearance of your skin as well. To be sure, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment.
I hope this helps.

Hi 40inNaples. You should consider a two tier approach-Treatment and prevention. Treatment of the existing pigmentation can be done by a board certified Plastic surgeon and would consist of a proper skin exam, followed by recommendations for topical lightners ( like Hydroquinone, vitamin C, Kojic acid, etc), exfoliation and cell turnover (Retin -A), peels, microneedling and lasers. Some treatments require multiple visits or daily use of products with little downtime, while more aggressive treatments will have some downtime, but results will be evident quickly. revention of more pigmentation involves sunblock application regularly. Good luck!
