Splotch after IPL
Thank you for your question deenerbug. IPL treatments work well for most pigment and redness. Sometimes pigment is noticed after a treatment which was not noticed before. This is actually common because often times one thing concerns patients more than others and when the first thing is improved, other things become more noticeable. Pigment that is deep in the skin can be more difficult to treat. Sometimes fractional lasers are used for this. Skin care products containing hydroquinone also can help. In the case of melasma continued treatments are recommended as melasma is a condition we control not cure. Please speak with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
