Laser pigmentation treatment can be like a dream come true for a lot of people. Everyone from movie stars to working women now wishes to get laser treatment for skin rejuvenation, aging solutions and fixing skin pigmentation problems.

What is hyper-pigmentation?

You may have hyper-pigmentation when spots of different sizes appear on your skin. Hyper-pigmentation is often seen in people with light skin tones. Age spots and liver spots are visible on the skin because of an imbalance in the melanin levels in the top layer of the skin.

Excessive exposure to the sun’s UV rays can also cause skin pigmentation. People with fair and freckled skin are more prone to skin damage caused by exposure to sun. Other skin pigmentation problems such as moles, keratosis, broken capillaries can also be treated with laser pigmentation treatment.

What does laser treatment do?

Pigmentation treatment works on two levels. Firstly, it erases the existing dark spots from your skin while stopping the formation of melanin in the area being treated. It works to give you smooth, clear and radiant looking skin.

How to choose a good pigmentation treatment clinic

It is important to check the credentials of the laser treatment clinic you wish to go to. Ensure the people performing the treatment are licensed doctors or medical practitioners. Also check that the equipment used during the treatment is in good condition.

Laser skin treatment is also used for tattoo, hair and stretch mark removal as well as treating acne scarring.
