What is the best treatment for poikiloderma?

Most of the time poikiloderma is a problem on the neck.  Is that your site?   Pulsed dye laser and/or IPL are the best for this.   If it’s mostly red, choose pulsed dye.  If it’s red and brown combined (most common), then choose the IPL first.  The pulsed dye laser can always be used at the end if there is some stubborn red left.    Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
