What is Laser Pigment Correction?
Excess production of the skin pigment melanin, also known as hyperpigmentation, can occur on multiple areas of the body. While this is typically not a cause for medical concern, many men and women have this uneven pigmentation removed for cosmetic purposes to restore their skin’s natural beauty. Modern advancements in laser technology make this treatment effective without extensive downtime.
How Does Laser Pigment Correction Work?
Laser-based treatments are successful for their ability to penetrate below the skin surface and target skin melanin without damaging or injuring surrounding healthy skin or tissues. Underneath the skin surface, laser energy is converted into heat, gently stimulating the skin’s natural healing response. This promotes the production of fresh, new skin cells that replace pigmented skin over time.
Laser pigment correction is typically well-tolerated, with most patients comparing it to the sensation of a small rubber band being lightly snapped against the skin.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Treated areas may exhibit redness akin to a slight sunburn, which is a good indicator that the skin’s healing process has begun. This is temporary and should subside within the first few days. Major side effects are rare, and all safety information will be discussed by Dr. Ntaimo before your treatment. The skin will be extra sensitive to the sun while it is healing, and protective measures should be taken while outdoors.
While some areas of discoloration can lighten after one treatment, multiple sessions may be necessary in order to fully clear your skin. During your consultation, your individual condition will be evaluated, and Dr. Ntaimo will discuss how many treatment sessions you may need in order to achieve your aesthetic goals. The results of laser pigment correction are long-lasting and can be maintained with a good skincare regimen.
