Spots and pigment on our faces and bodies come in many sizes and forms, including; dark spots, freckles, age spots, uneven pigmentation. They can usually occur as a result of aging, genetics and sun exposure. In order to achieve a flawless and glowing look, many people look for a treatment that will get rid or diminish these spots. If you are especially looking for a non-invasive, yet effective, solution, then the pigment laser treatment is the one for you!
What is the Pigment Laser treatment?
For this treatment, our skin care specialist will be using the Nordlys Ellipse IPL. This system has narrowband technology that targets your upper skin layer to effectively lighten and diminish pigmented spots and areas. This works when the high-intensity pulsed light is converted into heat to break down melanin and blood vessels that contribute to unwanted pigment.
What can you expect?
Prior to your pigment laser treatment, you will meet with one of our Cosmetic Doctors for a consultation. They will discuss your treatment goals and figure out how many sessions you will need to achieve your desired cosmetic results. Many patients will see improvement after only one session but up to 3 sessions might be required to attain maximal improvement.
It is also extremely important that you avoid sun exposure and tanning 4 weeks before,during and after your treatment. This ensures optimal results and decreases the risks of unwanted side effects.
Nordlys Ellipse IPL uses exclusive selective wavelength technology to deliver narrowband light, which means there will be less heat on the skin, resulting in comfortable treatment . The procedure will generally take between 20-30 minutes, depending on the treatable area.
After the treatment, you may notice sloughing off of some skin or darkening of some pigmented spots for a few days following treatment. After that, you will find your skin looks smoother and fresher.
To help with the healing process, our skin specialist will prescribe you an ointment to apply on the treated areas. The use of cold damp cloth on your skin may also provide healing benefits.
