For my arms/hands, which laser would be most helpful for brown spots and sun damage?
Thank you for the compliment!! It’s difficult to know without more info but it is probably a Q-switched YAG which is good for brown spots. Here’s the issue to think about.
If you are younger, don’t have much sun damage and have just a few brown spots, then the Q-switched YAG would be a good choice.
If though, you have a lot of sun damage, lots of brown spots and fine wrinkling on your arms, then a short series (2-3) treatments with the Fraxel Dual you will get much more long term benefit in the sun damage and the brown spots, in my opinion. With the Fraxel Dual you get two different wavelengths in one treatment. One wavelength targets the brown quite nicely and the other works on the sun damage and fine wrinkling.
