What is Pigmentation?
There are special cells (melanocytes) in the skin that make melanin, a pigment that affects the colour of skin.
When these special cells are damaged or unhealthy, melanin production is affected; some disorders affect the entire body, whereas others just affect patches of skin. High levels of melanin cause darker skin, low levels cause lighter skin, and total or partial lack of melanin results in the disorder Albinism.
LaseMD is a low-down time laser that resurfaces the skin, giving it brighter tone and improved texture. Treatments can be customized for your particular needs and schedule.
What to expect?
- We will apply numbing cream prior to your treatment to make sure you are comfortable and the treatment is pain free
- Patients describe the treatment as a warm, tingling sensation, which may vary. The treatment time may range from 15-20 min or longer
- Immediately following the treatment, you will notice some redness which will lessen over the next day or so
- The following 5-6 days, your skin will have a dry, sandpaper -like texture. This is normal and will resolve as your skin exfoliates, revealing fresher, clearer skin.
LaseMD can be used on the face, neck or chest (decollate). This laser treats mild to moderate age spots, freckles, sun spots, pigmented lesions, sun damage and actinic keratosis (pre-cancerous lesions)
