How does laser pigmentation removal works?

Our skin is the direct reflection of our health – internal and external. Clearly, it is important to keep it at its best look. Unfortunately, there are many skin issues people face. Some of them are caused by the way we live, and some of them are hard to avoid, especially as we age – pigmentation is one of them.

Pigmentation is one of the most common skin problems. There are different types of pigmentation, including freckles, sun spots, melasma, birth spots, etc.

Fortunately, there is an innovative way to fight this skin condition. However, it is important to have a consultation with a specialist, who can properly diagnose the pigmentation and prescribe the most relevant treatment.

What is pigmentation, and how does it occur?

First, let’s have a look at what exactly pigmentation is, and how it is caused.

Hyperpigmentation is caused by increased production of melanin. As we know, this is the natural pigment responsible for our skin, hair and eye color. One of the main factors responsible for the increased melanin production include sun exposure, hormonal influences, aging and skin injuries.

Actually, sun exposure is one of the leading reasons for hyperpigmentation. This is because the body is triggered to produce more melanin, to protect the skin (this is how we get a suntan).

Can we remove hyperpigmentation?

As you may guess, it is possible to remove or at least reduce hyperpigmentation.

First, it is important to say that most pigmentations are not harmful for the general health and can be taken care of with the proper skincare products with active ingredients such as vitamin C, arbutin, niacinamide, and good sun protection.

Of course, if you have a pigmentation that bothers you, we suggest you have a consultation with a specialist, who can give you the best advice.

Here at Skin Innovation clinic, we provide one of the most effective treatments for hyperpigmentation –Laser Pigmentation Removal.

How does laser pigmentation removal work?

Laser pigmentation removal is an effective treatment, which works effectively on skin cells, and is able to provide visible results in about 1 to 3 treatments. The result depends on the treated area, as well as on the type of pigmentation.

Laser pigmentation removal is fast and gentle treatment, reducing the appearance of pigmentation and bringing great results.

What can we expect during the laser pigmentation removal treatment?

As we already said, laser pigmentation removal is a gentle treatment. During the procedure, you might feel a mild, ant-bite-like sensation. However, there is no reason to worry, as the treatment is not painful. If you suffer from more stubborn depth of pigmentation, you might need a stronger laser, and a week’s downtime for recovery.

What would be the results after the treatment?

Laser pigmentation removal is a fast way to remove hyperpigmentation. However, you will need some time to see the results. Most commonly, it takes 1-3 weeks for the pigment to darken, before it begins to fade.

Right after the session, it is possible to notice redness, tenderness, and mild swelling, similar to sunburn. Anyway, there is no problem returning to your daily activities, right after the treatment. Of course, we suggest you make a consultation with a specialist, about the makeup and cosmetics you should and shouldn’t use, right after the laser pigmentation removal treatment.

Are there any risks and side effects from the laser pigmentation removal treatment?

Some of the side effects from the laser pigmentation removal include redness, swelling and itching, which will fade after a few days. Keep in mind that applying thick creams and bandages to the skin right after the treatment can worsen your acne and cause you to temporarily develop tiny white bumps. As we already mentioned, it is always best to have a consultation with a specialist, who will give you the best advice, so you can get optimal results.

Are the results permanent?

A great thing about laser pigmentation removal is that it brings a permanent solution. Usually, pigment spots that have been removed with a laser treatment do not return. However, there are some exceptions. Various factors, such as aging, UV exposure and hormonal changes may again lead to hyperpigmentation occurring.
