Laser treatment for dark skin affected by pigmentation

Posted on 20 Jul, 2010

Laser treatment for black skin is the latest treatment that has been developed for the minimising the uneven skin tone and to remove pigmentation scars. Coloured patches or spots which are known as pigmented scars appear on the skin due to an increase in production of melanin. This is usually caused by exposure to the sun.

The best option

Damaged areas are caused may look paler or darker than the surrounding areas. This will not clear by natural means and exposure to sunlight will worsen it. In this case, laser treatment is the best solution. It enhances the beauty of the skin by making the skin tone more uniform and the complexion clearer. The dermatologist may also prescribe some skin care products which will have to be used during the course of the treatment in order to speed up the healing process and get the best possible results.

Laser treatment process

The treatment is performed by exposing the affected skin to fine laser beams. This may cause the surface of the treated skin to suffer red rashes but these will heal very quickly. The wavelength of the beam used may vary for different cases. The number of sessions that a person will require to get rid of the scars completely may also differ.
