Irregular and abnormal pigmentation of the skin, i.e. dark skin pigmentation, is a common occurrence and most people have some form of skin pigmentation from birth such as freckles. However, most people develop increased levels of facial and body hyperpigmentation and melanin pigmentation as they age due to exposure to the sun’s UV rays. This type of pigmentation is often referred to as sun-spots or age-spots. Laser treatment is highly effective at breaking down this pigmentation and significantly reduces the appearance of freckles, sun-spots, and age spots.
Hormonal changes in women, especially during pregnancy, can also lead to patches of facial pigmentation, known as Melasma. Melasma is generally not treated with laser since the laser can stimulate the hormones to create more pigmentation. Melasma is treated with our famous chemical peel treatments.
At Clinica-Lase we use the Candela Alexandrite medical grade laser machine for non-hormonal pigmentation removal. Candela are pioneers in the aesthetic industry with new and innovative technologies. The Candela machine uses an exact wavelength which allows it to attach to the melanin within the deeper layers of your skin (dermis, location of pigmentation) where it is then broken down and removed naturally by the body.
