LASER SKIN TREATMENT
How do lasers remove unwanted pigments in the skin?
Laser therapy is one of the most exciting treatments for removing unwanted skin pigments such as birthmarks, age spots, freckles and sunspots. Lasers work by emitting a specialized light that passes through the skin and is preferentially absorbed by the unwanted pigment ( natural melanin) in the skin. The laser causes the pigments to break up and disappear, leaving you with smooth, clear skin.
What can I expect from the procedure?
We numb your skin first with a topical anesthetic cream. Most people describe the treatment as feeling like the light “ snap” of a rubber band against the skin. Any discomfort can be eased with the application of cool compresses. After treatment, you can immediately return to your normal activities. You may choose to wear make-up to cover the mild redness that follows the procedure.
Is it permanent?
After a treatment, you will notice the dark spots “flaking off” or lightening over a period of several weeks. It is important to stay out of the sun and use a good sunscreen during this time. Best results are usually obtained with several treatments, spaced about three weeks apart.
