If you have some sort of skin discolouration, you’re not alone. In fact, facial brown spots & discolouration are the top reasons for cosmetic visits to dermatologists. Although you may have tried & failed with previous efforts to erase pigment, newer technologies have resulted in some remarkable outcomes. Laser treatments represent a breakthrough in age-defying skin care that treats skin non-invasively.
What are pigmented lesions..?
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.
What is laser treatment for pigment..?
Laser treatments use short, safe bursts of light to target & treat specific skin conditions. Today’s lasers are very sophisticated & carefully deliver the appropriate amount of energy for your specific skin. Our lasers are specifically designed to target the excessive pigmented cells producing the unwanted spot. They provide a treatment that’s fast, easy & well-tolerated. It can make your skin look younger by removing age spots, sun spots, uneven pigmentation, diffuse redness & by stimulating collagen production thus improving your skin texture.
How does laser treatment work?
Our lasers deliver precise amounts of energy to effectively treat unwanted pigment & improve sun-damaged skin. The laser hand-piece is placed over the skin where the brown spot or other pigmentation sits & a bright flash of light is released. This light is absorbed by the pigment in sunspots & converted into heat. The heat damages the cells that created the pigment & causes your body to naturally dispose of this tissue while creating new, healthy tissue.
