Has anyone tried Broad Band Light to remove age spots on bands and face? could you please shares your experience.  Will be done at 

Derms office. My Dermatologist  recommended it.  

Many thanks!

Re: BBL for age spot removal?

BBL is the same as IPL. The treatments are more superficial than laser removal. With BBL you'll see spots get lighter and sometime down the road most spots return. Laser, otoh, treats the root of the problem so the chances of a spot returning is less frequent if at all.

 

I've had both types of spot removal treatments and the laser got rid of them. They never came back.

@Midmod 

Ask your derm if the laser option is right for you and then ask about topicals used on the treated areas after laser treatment. Also ask if there would be more than one laser treatment needed and if so, ask your derm if there is multi-treatment discounts (package deals).

TySm! I would never have thought to even ask those types questions ❓😁 awesome information thanks again. I don't have wrinkles yet but I have been taking good care of my skin since a teen. Now that I'm almost 56, I'm experiencing discoloration from old sun damage. You are a wealth of knowledge, I can't thank you enough for that.
