Laser Treatment Of Hyperpigmented Lesions
(melasma, freckles, café-au-lait spots, sun-damaged skin, uneven skin tone)
Laser treatment of hyperpigmentation or hyperpigmented lesions has become possible today thanks to the development of the latest advanced laser technologies parallelly to the know-how.
The VIP Laser Clinic Med Spa has the honor and privilege to introduce the latest and safest laser treatments to you for the treatment of hyperpigmentation lesions. As from your first treatment session, your brown or dark brown patches start lightening.
For dark brown or very dark skin, the skin will shed off first its epidermal layers intensely filled with melanin in order to lighten up slowly, though zones of lighter skin can also be immediately seen after the treatment but the latter depends on the presence of lesser concentrations of melanin in the epidermis. So, in cases of dark skin, skin lightening will take place mostly in the form of patches and not uniformly over the whole black skin surface area as the concerned skin area is not necessarily pigmented uniformly with melanin in such cases.
Laser treatment of hyperpigmented lesions will definitely relieve you of your abnormally darkened skin provided you follow the treatment reguarly as per the doctor's advice.
Using our advanced laser systems, we can effectively treat skin hyperpigmentation problems, such as chloasma, melasma, age spots, liver spots and uneven dark skin due to the overproduction of melanin in the epidermis of the skin.
The light energy from the laser systems targets the melanin in the pigmented lesion, which absorbs the light, heats up and is eliminated from your skin in the following two possible ways:
Part of the melanin is broken down by the action of the intense laser light into microscopic particles and is evacuated via the body's natural defense, circulation and excretory systems.
Due to the action of the intense laser light, the other part of the melanin initially turns darker and forms a micro-crust or thin dark layer on the skin. Then, over a period of normally 3 to 7 days for small patches/spots and up till two weeks or more for larger patches/zones, also depending on the intensity/thickness of the melanin pigmentation in the epidermis, the darkened pigmentation layer or micro-crust will flake or shed away, leaving little trace of the original mark. The patient only has to be patient and bear with the changes occurring at his epidermis level and follow his treating doctor's advice. Finally, in this way the skin gets renewed and excellent results can be seen with this treatment.
Laser treatment for skin lightening gives a normal and naturally coloured skin, thus restoring your healthy and fresh-looking skin. This treatment also produces an approximately 40% increase in collagen, reducing fine lines and replenishing moisture loss.
Different skins will demand different degrees of lightening. In general, one normally needs a course of an average number of 3 to 5 laser sessions of skin-lightening treatment. Some people may need more treatment sessions, depending on which degree of skin lightening they want to achieve. Each laser skin lightening treatment session is administered with an interval of around 4 weeks normally in order to obtain the desired results.
For more information and treatment, you are, first of all, advised to call at the clinic for an appointment for a consultation that will help determine your individual treatment and its cost.
