Having a clear, even complexion is often associated with a youthful appearance. If you suffer from pigmentation issues such as brown spots, sun damage, or “liver spots”, it can cause you to appear older than you are, and may negatively impact self-confidence. Dr. Deborah Farrell can treat skin pigmentation issues using the MedLite®, PicoSure™ and ProLite® IPL (intense pulsed light) laser treatments.
How Is Laser Skin Pigmentation Treatment Performed?
The MedLite® laser is ideal for advanced skin care treatments, providing the patient with several benefits. Using the MedLite® laser, Dr. Deborah Farrell can treat a wide range of skin concerns, including enlarged pores, poor texture or elasticity, and sun spots or uneven skin tone.
PicoSure™ Skin Revitalization treatments can be used to improve the appearance of brown spots or poor skin tone and texture. The key to this non-surgical treatment is the way it stimulates your skin’s natural production of collagen to naturally enhance its overall youthfulness and appearance. Prior to your PicoSure treatment, Dr. Deborah Farrell will prepare your skin using a topical anesthetic. Laser pulses then use picosecond energy to target the underlying layers of your skin for treatment.
ProLite® is an intense pulsed light (IPL) skin treatment that is designed to restore a more youthful appearance and improve skin concerns such as pigmented or vascular lesions. This photorejuvenation treatment takes just 15-30 minutes to complete and requires little or no downtime. In addition to the face, ProLite® can be used to treat just about any area of the body, including the neck, chest, shoulders, or hands – areas that receive plenty of sun.
What Is the Recovery Process for Skin Pigmentation Treatment?
There is little to no downtime associated with these laser skin pigmentation treatments. You may experience minor side effects such as redness or minimal discomfort, but you should be able to resume your normal schedule immediately after your session with Dr. Farrell. It is important to avoid any unnecessary sun exposure following this laser treatment.
When Will You Notice the Results of Your Skin Pigmentation Treatment?
After just one treatment, you will notice improvements in the look and feel of your skin. Dr. Deborah Farrell may recommend a series of treatments to fully treat any pigmentation or skin issues.
