Q:

I am considering a photo-facial. I have mild sun damage with sunspots and some minor discoloration. I also have dark circles under my eyes. What is your opinion?

A:

A photo-facial can give improvement in fine lines and some pigmentation changes related to sun exposure. The dark circles under the eyes, however, may require other types of treatment. If you are in need of, or are looking for, more substantial improvement, then other treatments such as chemical peels or laser resurfacing might be better.
