Dark Spots on face

on Jan 24, 2012 @ 12:58 pm

I have some dark spots on my face that I got once when I spent the day out in the sun and didn't have enough protection. ( I dread that day every time I look in the mirror).  I have been to a couple dermatologists that have prescribed me Hydroquinone which made my skin very red so I stopped using it. Is there any other remedy that might help the dis-coloration disappear once and for all?
Also, I always use 60 spf now on my face, however when its a hot day outside, I feel my skin getting hot and burning in the area where the spots are. Does anyone know why this happens?

my yonger sister who is 17 had some clumsy spots on her cheek earlier. I had used microdermabrasion for it and after 4 application the spot got vanished.

IPL? on Nov 20, 2012 @ 08:45 pm

Have you ever tried an IPL treatment?
I used to have really bad dark spots on my chest (always wore sunscreen on my face but never thought to put it on my chest!) and had an IPL treatment done a few times and my dark spots are completely gone. (you can get it done on your face, and hands too im pretty sure) All your dark spots will become more visible in the day following then theyll literally just peel off, its amazing.

Make sure you go to a real medical cosmetic clinic to get this done though (my girlfriend had a horror story with laser hair removal from a 'spa' so im always cautious about recommending treatments if theyre not from a credible place!)

Hope that helps,
