Are you unhappy with dark spots and hyperpigmentation? Are you searching for an effective treatment for achieving an even and healthy skin tone? Years of sun exposure can lead to the development of age spots, sun spots, and freckles on the surface of skin. At Texas Laser and Aesthetics, we offer a range of non-invasive and advanced skin care treatments to have your complexion looking its best at any age. With our innovative pigment removal treatments, you can reclaim an even and younger-looking complexion.
What is Pigment Removal?
Skin pigmentation marks are clusters of melanocytes which are cells that contain melanin beneath the surface of skin. They often appear on the hands, face, and other areas of the body as a result of sun exposure. Our innovative and non-invasive pigment removal lasers can be used to target and correct these superficial lesions in as little as 1-3 treatments depending on the area being treated, as well as the type of pigmentation. Treatments are non-invasive and are one of the most effective solutions for removing unwanted pigmentation on the surface of skin from within. The innovative laser system utilizes high energy light wavelengths which are absorbed by the pigmentation as heat. This is effective at destroying the melanin clusters – leaving you with a more even and healthy-looking complexion.
What can be treated?
Our pigmentation removal treatments can correct a variety of superficial imperfections including:
- Sun spots
- Age spots
- Flat pigments including birth marks
- And more!
What to Expect
During an initial consultation a skin analysis is performed in order to create a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique skin needs and desired outcome.
During treatment, the specialized laser is held to the skin above the targeted area. The system then works to gently deliver wavelengths of concentrated light beneath the surface of skin. The wavelengths are only absorbed by the cells containing high concentrations of pigment leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. The light energy is then absorbed by the pigmentation as heat – destroying it. This process causes minimal discomfort and may feel like a rubber band lightly snapping the surface of skin.
Following treatment, the treated area will appear like a dark scab which will eventually shed off in about 7-10 days. The result is a clear and more even skin tone.
If you are like many patients who are unhappy with hyperpigmentation and superficial lesions, our innovative pigmentation treatments could benefit you. Reach out to the professionals here at Texas Laser and Aesthetics to learn more. Contact us today and schedule your consultation!
