Laser treatments have become quite popular over the past few years. Continuous technological advancements and market demand are some reasons for the increased availability of laser treatments.
Laser pigmentation treatment is also known as skin rejuvenation or laser resurfacing treatment. This cosmetic procedure is commonly used for treating skin problems related to skin pigmentation. Hyperpigmentation is a type of skin problem that occurs when spots of different quantities and sizes are visible on the skin.
Liver spots, brown spots and age spots synonymously describe uneven distribution of melanin at the uppermost layer of the skin. These spots mostly occur due to skin’s exposure to UV rays emitted from the sun. The visibility of these spots depends on variables like age, natural skin pigmentation and sun exposure.
The laser treatment procedure
The laser treatment procedure makes use of advanced precision technology. The light of a high intensity laser beam is used to treat the affected area. There are two major functions of laser treatment. The first function is to eliminate the existing pigmentation that causes distinct spots on the skin. Other function is to stop the formation of melanin in the treated area.
The goal of laser treatment for skin pigmentation is to achieve smoother, even-toned and young looking skin. Laser treatment is mostly performed on the face. However, it can also be performed on other parts of the body.
