Certain skin problems have just one effective cure which has no serious side-effects – that of laser treatments. In the last 10 years, there has been a 134 percent increase in the laser treatments performed world wide. Early laser treatments were based on contrast elements, which made them effective for paler skin tones, but less so for black skin. However, according to various cosmetic clinical institutes, laser skin treatments are now effective and safe for any skin colour.
Laser treatment is very effective in smoothing out the tone of skin affected by hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is often a result of sun exposure and shows up on the skin in irregular, darker patches.
With the use of the high intensity of laser, the top layer of the skin is removed allowing new skin to flourish. It stops the production of melanin in the area which causes the darker patches.
Ablative and non-ablative lasers are used for hyper pigmentation treatment. The top layers of skin are vaporised with the help of ablative laser and the non-ablative lasers work deeper down without causing harm to the top layers of the skin.
Make sure you consult experienced and skilled doctors so that your skin type is determined. They will let you know the number of sessions you will require and the cost of the treatment.
