Effective Skin Pigmentation Treatment in Brisbane
Although some types of pigmented lesions exist at birth, oftentimes pigment represents one of the first signs of ageing. That is why so many people are interested in removing pigment. This market is about double the size of the market for the removal of tattoos.
Using the principle of selective photothermolysis, light-based treatment targets different chromophores in the skin. Chromophores selectively absorb the laser or light energy as heat and yield the desired response.
These optimal wavelengths of light clear pigmented lesions by targeting melanin. The damaged pigmented lesions are then cleared by the body. They undergo a mild desquamation and slough off, removing the appearance of the lesion from the skin.
What is the Best Way to Treat Skin Pigmentation?
There are different methods you can use to treat skin pigmentation. We utilise precise laser targeting techniques to treat different skin types for skin pigmentation at our Brisbane facility.
Methods like selective photothermolysis are great at targeting tissues at particular areas and destroying them with laser energy without impacting other nearby tissues. Others like Thermo-Lo is also a popular technology used for pigmentation removal that uses radio frequency to send slight currents to the skin lesion to dehydrate and remove it.
While different methods are best for different types of pigmentation, it’s better to ask a certified skin doctor before undergoing a treatment.
What Can I Expect During the Treatment?
A slight discomfort can be experienced during the treatment. The duration of a typical skin pigmentation treatment is also short so you can expect it to last for about half an hour.
However, in any case we do our best to address any pain during treatment and help you feel better.
What About Post Treatment?
After the treatment you might see a slight redness on your skin near the treatment area followed by little tenderness. These are indicators of the healing taking place and can take a few days to weeks to subside.
Should I Undergo More than One Treatment?
To witness best results for skin pigmentations, it’s recommended to take two to three sessions with a gap of three weeks in between. However, it really depends on the patient so a consultation with your doctor is necessary.
