I’m not sure if it was from the Fraxel treatment, but post Fraxel, my face skin has been darker than my neck even though I wear sunscreen religiously on my face and not on my neck. I notice it more when I see a full body shot of me in the mirror–tan face even without make up, and paler neck, shoulder etc. skin.
I’ve been using the Power Line Concentrate from Kiehl’s (I”m on my third bottle) and have seen an overall lightening of my facial skin. I did a short round of Obaji which also helped. I mention the Kiehl’s product because, my Korean friends who are skin fanatics starting commenting about the lightening after I used my first bottle of Kiehl’s.
I am now using the newest Kiehl’s promise to lighten dark spots product, Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution . Just to test it, I put the Kiehl’s product using about a half dropper on my face and gently massaged in. On my foot, I have a sun spot and I applied tretonin 10%.
Let’s see what happens-I’ve been using the product for about 10 days.
