Last time (Jan-7, 2009) I went to my dermatologist, she applied liquid nitrogen to remove 2 age spots on my face.

After a few days, scabs were formed and they were gone after a few more days. Now I am left with some dark patches in the two areas. Sorry to say that they are much bigger than the original age spots.

Anything I can do?

I am hoping these dark patches will fade away in time.

I am now afraid to do anything more. It was just 2 dots before and now they are few small patches. The liquid nitrogen may have made it worse.

I've never heard of using liquid nitrogen on hyperpigmentation, only on raised lesions of the skin as it basically freezes abnormalities. I would try the Aroma White Spot Corrector because the results won't be very dramatic.

I think I will wait a while, maybe it will fade away. I'm discouraged, don't want to try new products for now.

This is my first time with liquid nitrogen. My ex-dermatologist used some kind of small electrodes to burn off the spots. The scabs (much smaller) will form, then fall off, all in a few days with no side effects.

I started this post to see if anyone here have experiences with liquid nitrogen.

My doctor firend suggested me to try Neotrata HQ Plus (4%).

Any one has experience on this product?
