Brown Spot Removal
Pigmented Lesion / Age Spot Removal
GentleMax Pro® Laser Fotofacial
During treatment, laser light is absorbed only by the unwanted melanin,
raising the temperature to cause shattering of the pigment. Any deeper
level damaged blood vessels are treated similarly with just a quick switch
of the settings.
Shortly after treatment, the pigment cells (or melanin) have been thoroughly
fragmented - without damaging the surrounding tissue. Vascular lesions
(spider veins) also coagulate and shrink, with many of them disappearing
altogether as a result.
In the weeks after treatment, the shattered melanin particles are eliminated
by your body's own "clean up" system that absorbs the fragmented
pigment. Little or no trace of the initial pigmentation spots or spidery
veins remain. The GentleMax Pro® Fotofacial treatment also improves
skin texture through collagen stimulation. You get multiple treatment
benefits through one system.
How many treatments do you need?
A single treatment completely removes the pigmented blemish. However patients
with darker pigmentation will need additional treatment. We will normally
ask our clients to return 4 - 6 weeks after the treatment for a follow-up.
How much time is required?
Appointments are normally 15-30 minutes but may be longer for large numbers
of brown spots.
Will laser work on my pigmentation?
Our lasers work to remove age spots or pigmentation on any skin tone on
the face or body except for very dark skins. Clients with darker skin
(Fitzpatrick scale 5 or greater) are not candidates for this procedure
because the skin surrounding the brown spot could absorb too much laser
energy and produce a more serious burn.
What are benefits of laser treatment?
As well as a treatment for age spots on the face or body, the heat from
the laser will stimulate collagen and elastin production in the treated
area, giving you additional skin toning and reducing fine wrinkles and
the effects of age spots.
How do I take care of my skin after?
After removing age spots from the face or body, you must strictly follow
your post-treatment care routine and protect your skin from the sun. Use
a broad spectrum sunscreen every day.
