LASER TREATMENT FOR HYPERPIGMENTATION REDUCTION
Pigmentation reduction, sometimes referred to as age spots, sun spots or dark pigment (please see below for a full list) can be a result of numerous factors such as hormonal changes, aging or sun exposure. Often, this can be difficult to treat. However, using the latest in innovative laser technologies these dark blemishes can be significantly reduced, leaving you with rejuvenated skin and a brighter, clear and more even complexion.
What kind of pigmentation laser can treat?
Skin resurfacing involves the removal of a paper-thin layer of skin that is replaced with new skin that is healthier. This improves texture, pore size, fine lines, pigmentation, and scars.
When treating the skin with the iPixel Erbium laser, it heats the surface layers or the skin and evaporates the water to resurface the area. This leaves the skin with tiny areas (pixels) which have been removed while the surrounding skin is intact. The body then produces volumes of collagen and elastin to repair the skin leaving you with new, healthier skin which is smoother and has fewer lines and wrinkles.
