LASER PIGMENTED LESIONS
But first, skincare.
If you have some sort of skin discolouration, you’re not alone.
Facial brown spots & discolouration are the top reasons for cosmetic visits to dermatologists. Outdated methods can be costly when used repeatedly and cause frustration when they don’t work. But there is no need to worry, we now have newer technologies, like lasers, that leave you with remarkable outcomes!
Laser treatment represents a breakthrough in age-defying skincare.
At Allure Aesthetics, our laser skincare experts use the latest medical-grade technologies to treat skin non-invasively. We will target the treatment area with great precision, causing no damage to the surrounding skin, which is particularly important on your face and around your eyes.
We use the most advanced system available, the Elite+™ laser from Cynosure®. The Elite+™ is best-in-class, allowing us to achieve the results you want. The Elite+™ is two lasers in one system, each laser is better at targeting different unwanted conditions, giving you the best result possible.
Thousands of treatments have been performed with the Elite+™ laser and it has been proven safe and effective on patients of all skin types.
Laser treatments use short, safe bursts of light to target & treat specific skin conditions. Our laser technology is very sophisticated & carefully delivers the appropriate amount of energy exactly for your own skin. It is specifically designed to target the excessive pigmented cells producing the unwanted spot. We provide a treatment that’s fast, easy & well-tolerated. It can make your skin look younger by removing age spots, sunspots, uneven pigmentation, diffuse redness & it stimulates collagen production, thus improving your skin texture too!
Pigmentation is the colour in your skin produced by melanin, a natural pigment that also determines eye & hair colour. However, if too much melanin is produced in one area, the result is a brown patch on your skin.
Too much melanin can result from:
Heredity or congenital factors
Common pigmented lesions include
Age Spots or “Liver” Spots: Smaller darkened patches usually on older adults who have been exposed to the sun for many years. These spots can be seen on the face, forearms & back of hands.
Post-inflammatory Hyper-Pigmentation: This type of hyper-pigmentation results from any inflammatory injury or trauma to the skin. For example, acne often leaves dark discoloration after a blemish heals. Rashes like psoriasis & eczema often darken the skin as well.
Please note laser treatments are subject to a consultation, cost of consultation will be taken off treatment price if you proceed with it.
