sunspots or lentigines with Intense Pulsed Dye laser (IPL).
A 43-year-old lady of Asian origin attended as she was feeling self-conscious of the many age spots that were appearing on her face with increasing frequency. Being skin type IV, treatment was refused in many cosmetic clinics. She had a thorough consultation, including specific assessment of risk factors for treatment complications in dark skin types. Her skin was approximately prepared and she had patch tests for Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), followed by 2 treatment sessions with very good results!!
