Lifecycle and hormonal changes can affect the distribution of color (melanin) in our skin, leading to the appearance of sun spots, age spots, or melasma- a dark, patchy facial discoloration condition.
Alma’s light-based and laser treatments remove the appearance of spots and pigmentation by targeting the melanin in the darkened area, clearing all layers of the pigmentation and revealing even-toned, unblemished skin.
The treatments are specially designed for patient comfort and are safe and effective for all skin types, including dark skin.
WHY IS LASER TREATMENT EFFECTIVE?
The ray emitted by the laser is well absorbed by the pigment melanin, which is present in pigment spots in high concentration. A huge amount of energy is instantly transferred to a microscopically small skin area. All the energy is absorbed by the pigment spots of the skin within an extremely short period of time which is, however, not enough for surrounding tissues to heat up. Therefore, the laser ray does not disturb the integrity of the skin and does not cause any side effects. The procedure removes pigment spots in an effective and quick manner, and the skin pattern smoothens as a result of synthesis of new cells as well as collagen and elastic fibre promoted by the energy emitted by the laser.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Laser can treat pigment spots appearing in all parts of the face and body. Women most frequently undergo procedures in the areas of the face, neck, especially decollete, external side of the hands, forearms and legs. Men basically: in the areas of the face, neck, arms, and back.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO TREAT PIGMENTED LESIONS WITH LASER?
The procedure in the area of the face and neck takes around 3 minutes; treatment of pigmentary changes of the skin which cover bigger areas, i.e. on the chest, takes 10-15 minutes.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
At least 1 or 2 procedures should be performed. Rarely, 3 or 4 procedures are performed. Pigment is removed to a complete or greater extent after the first procedure. If some pigment still remains after the first procedure, the next procedure is performed after 3 weeks.
HOW WILL THE SKIN LOOK LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Pigment spots may become darker for a few days after the procedure, and will become lighter or disappear completely in 5-7 days. Hygiene products and make-up can be used as usual the next day after the procedure.
