Pigmentation removal

What is Pigmentation?

IPL fires an intense burst of light to target the pigmented lesions leaving normal surrounding skin unaffected. The laser light converts to heat to destroy the damaged pigmentation cells which turn darker over several days and fall off.Pigmentation on the skin is the appearance of dark and uneven spots that are in contrast with your normal skin tone. They are a sign of aging and their appearance can be very undesirable to many people. While some people develop wrinkles or crow’s feet, others start to see pigmentation on their skin as they get older. Pigmentation is caused when your skin produces higher than normal levels of melanin, which is the skin pigment that produces colour in your skin. Increased melanin levels results in the skin becoming darker and producing the dark spots (also called “age spots”).


What can I do to Avoid Pigmentation?

In many cases, pigmentation is unavoidable because it is a natural part of aging. However, there are a few things you can do to help reduce your chances of developing pigmentation. The most important measure you can take is to make sure you are protected from the sun. Too much sun exposure can lead to an acceleration in the development of pigmentation, so it is important to use sunscreen whenever you can.


What can I Expect with Pigmentation Laser Removal?

New technology has made the procedure much safer and less invasive. The procedure can be somewhat uncomfortable due to the heat that the laser produces, but there are anesthetic creams that can be used to help with this. Most people require two to six treatment sessions in order for their pigmentation problem to go away permanently.
