Beena, recurrence of spots after Micro dermabrasion indicates that the triggering cause is still there. Generally these spots are triggered by hormone estrogen, melanin or sun.
Chloasma spots occer due to age.
Sunscreen formulations may help.
Hydroquinone topical ointment at night can be used over the spots. It decreases melanin production. This helps only if the pigmentation is superficial & not deep. Pigmentation may reccur if it is discontinued.
Monobenzone, a derivative of hydroquinone should be avoided as its action is irregular & it may cause permanent blanching.
Apply almond oil on the spots for 10 minutes before you wash your face.
