HYPERPIGMENTATION TREATMENT

Pigment can be the most difficult and frustrating skin issue to treat. Luckily, we offer Picosure pigment removal for benign pigmented lesion. Laser light is targeted at unwanted pigment cin picosecond pulses. Picosecond technology has ultra-short pulse durations, 100 times shorter than Q-switch lasers (older technology), and in the trillionths of a second. These bursts of energy create a photo-acoustic impact which breaks up the pigmentation into smaller, more easily absorbed particles.

What kind of pigment can be treated with the Picosure:

  • Lentigos
  • Freckles
  • Sunspots
  • Nevus of Ota
  • Cafe-au-Lait
  • Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma

Melasma is a complex condition, its pathogenesis is not completely understood. However, for patients who are compliant to doctor’s instructions, get Picosure treatments on time, stay away from the Sun and irritative cosmetics, follow a disciplined approach to topical creams prescribed, they usually see very visible improvement to their melasma, and can maintain their good skin complexion for a long time.

Is a Nurse or Doctor going to do my treatment?

If there was any benefit whatsoever to having a nurse do your treatment, we would definitely have a nurse performing these treatments. There is no need for injections or anesthesia, so it is not necessary for a nurse to do your procedure. If there are any concerns or reasons for caution our doctor will personally review your treatment plan before proceeding. Instead, we have highly trained and experienced laser technicians who specialize in medical aesthetics. They have also been trained to give an extra measure of pampering, so you feel well taken care of during your treatment.
