Melasma and Skin Pigmentation Treatment
What is Pigmentation and Melasma?
While these marks are completely harmless, they can be unsightly.
Which areas can be treated and are results permanent?
Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas include the face, neck, chest, hands, shoulders and backs; these areas are typically the most exposed to the damaging effects of the sun.
Is the treatment painful and how long does it take?
Most patients find the procedure tolerable and require no numbing cream or anesthesia. They often compare the laser pulse to a snap of a thin rubber band.
What precautions and products do I need to take after the treatment?
It is extremely important not to affect the skins pigmentation in any way prior to or after the laser treatments. Such exposure can cause hypo and hyper pigmentation, impairing the effects of the laser treatment. Please avoid the sun or solariums for 4 weeks prior to treatment and at least 4-8 weeks after treatment. Be sure to also apply SPF regularly while you are exposed to the sun and do also not use any form of tanning throughout your treatment, including tanning sprays or lotions.
