Pigmentation treatment

Our skin is the largest organ on our body, it consist of two main layers; epidermis and dermis. Epidermis produces melanin; melanin is a dye which gives human skin a color. It is a natural response of the human skin on the ultraviolet irradiation. Malfunction of melanin production and distribution is one of the main reasons of pigmented lesions appearance.

The machine that we use to treat pigmentation in our clinic is Laser therapy with Q-Switched Nd:YAG.

What is the main advantage? The procedure is relatively painless, does not cause injury, and has no down time. Immediately after treatment you can resume your daily activities as usual.

When will results be visible? It depends on the problems; in some cases  more than one therapy with interval 4-8 weeks is needed.

Contraindications:

  • Having viral or fungal infection.
  • Pregnancy.

 

Please consult with the doctor for discussing other contraindications.

With pigmentation treatments that we offer you can treat the following:

  • Melasma
  • Tattoo removal
  • Nevus of Ota
  • Age Spot
  • Freckles
  • Café au lait
  • Skin rejuvenation

Tattoo removal

The target color of tattoo that we can remove are the colors –  black, red and yellow. For the best and safest result you will need to repeat this treatment more than one time. We conduct this treatment using Laser Therapy with Q-Switched Nd:YAG. This laser system will form a high-energy in a very short time. The laser beam penetrates into skin tissue with optimum strength and high speed into the treated area. The main target is pigment, because different colour of pigment absorbs the different laser wavelength. Furthermore, black pigment and hemoglobin strongly absorbs the light of 1064nm and 532 nm, that make other tissues of the body suffer no side effects. The laser will break the target in to small particles and will be flushed out by the immune system.

Melasma

Melasma: is a pigmentation disorder that occurs in people of Asian descent and darker Caucasians in form of brown or dark brown spots on the face or forearms. It appears due to hormone disbalance causing melanocytes to produce excessive melanin as a reaction to sun exposure.

Solar Lentigenes

Solar Lentigines: These are flat pigmented 1-3 cm lesions present mainly on sun exposed areas. They start to appear in the third decade of life.

Freckles

Freckles: These are small, flat round lesions, which occur in the lighter skin types. They tend to turn darker in summer and lighter in winter. Causative factors are genetics and sun exposure.
