Pigmentation Removal, Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

Pigmentation Removal, Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

One of the most common misconceptions about pigmentation and discoloured skin is that it will fade away by itself and that no treatment, of any kind, is necessary.

Some types of pigmentation, like those caused by acne, can eventually lighten up over time.

keep in mind this does not happen overnight, but can take a few months, if not longer before you see a difference.

But, the majority of discolouration needs to be treated with high-powered active ingredients and in-office treatments to fully eradicate spots on the surface. Not sure what to get done to vanish your spots once and for all.

Try Microdermabrasion:

During a microdermabrasion treatment, the uppermost layer of skin is gently removed to get rid of sunspots, darkness and other types of superficial and minimal discolouration.

There are some versions of microdermabrasion, like that offer a secondary step where specialized anti-pigment ingredients are infused into the skin to further brighten it.

Try a Chemical Peel:

Salicylic acid, glycolic acid and TCA chemical peels are often recommended to vanish discolouration. Chemical peels are powerful at speeding up results and removing deeper pigment.

Their potency can be manipulated to suit the type and depth of pigment. However, not every skin colour is suitable for a peel, and if you have a history of scarring, you may want to find another option.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL):

A popular choice for targeting sun-induced discolouration, IPL involves light-based energy pulsed onto the skin while simultaneously targeting blood vessels. The light seeks out the discolouration in the skin to lift it up and out.

Expect for the treated areas to turn dark and flake off in a few days. We sometimes do an IPL treatment following two laser treatments to really clean up the skin.

Fractional Laser Resurfacing:

The most intense option available, fractional laser resurfacing treatments work wonders at erasing more stubborn pigmentation.

Lasers like Fraxel, Halo and Clear + Brilliant, among others, create safe and controlled micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate the skin’s natural healing process.

As a result, discolouration is diminished as new, fresh skin comes to the surface.

On average, patients will need 2 to 3 sessions for complete removal. Subsequent treatments can be scheduled for four weeks after your treatment.

When will I see results:

Most patients will see results after just one treatment. These results will be evident in about 4 weeks, but it can take up to 8 weeks for the full result.

Are the results permanent:

However, various factors such as ageing, changes in hormone levels or UV exposure can stimulate new hyperpigmentation.

Laser pigmentation removal treatments do not prevent new hyperpigmentation from occurring.

How can I get the best results from pigmentation removal:

We strongly recommend that our patients protect their investment by using a high-quality, chemical-free sunblock on a daily basis, rain or shine, summer or winter. Hats are also highly recommended in the summer months.

Appropriate protection from damaging UV rays can prevent the recurrence of the hyperpigmentation.

For patients that are predisposed to hyperpigmentation, we recommend supplementing your skin care routine with Chemical Peels and Microneedling along with a routine of medical grade skin care products.

Pigmentation removal relies on the lymphatic system to help with the elimination of the treated pigment.

As a patient, We suggest daily moderate exercise, such as walking, will also increase circulation and support the lymphatic system.

Is there any downtime:

After treatments, patients typically experience temporary discolouration or reddening of the skin around the treatment site. Make-up can be applied immediately after treatment.

Because this laser technology is so gentle on the skin, many of our patients receive treatment just prior to work or during their lunch hour.

The laser is the most advanced in the world and features faster, shorter duration pulses. This means that the skin absorbs less heat.

Which allows for a more comfortable procedure with less downtime when compared to less advanced laser technologies.

In many cases, incompletely removes pigmented lesions or may require more sessions to produce reasonable results.

Picosecond technology, has ultra-short pulse durations, 100 times shorter than Q-switch lasers, and in the trillionths of a second.

These bursts of energy create a photoacoustic impact which breaks up the tattoo ink or pigmentation into smaller, more easily absorbed particles.

The unique, proprietary mode of action has the highest peak power and the shortest pulse duration of any picosecond device on the market for superior efficacy, safety and comfort.

Can I pay for a per session:
