There are many forms and types of pigmentation, with the most common being age spots, liver spots, freckles, and sun spots. A pigmented lesion is caused by an abnormal production of melanin which then becomes visible on the skins surface. Most lesions occur due to sun exposure however can also be triggered by hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, medications and menopause.
With new laser technology, the majority of these pigmented lesions can now be safely removed after only a few short treatments. By using the lasers specific wavelength energy, the pigmented lesion can be specifically targeted without damaging surrounding tissue.

How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions a patient needs to obtain optimal results will depend on: Skin type, depth of pigmentation and fluence (energy) required in treatment.
On average, most patients need a minimum of 4 treatments.
How often do I have to have treatments?
Due to quicker healing time on the face, laser pigmentation treatments can be performed at 4 week intervals.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
Clients receiving treatment for pigmentation may experience some darkening of pigmentation for a period of 5-7days.
How do I maintain the results?
Unfortunately pigmentation can return if the patient does not wear sun protection daily. A melanin inhibiting cosmeceutical will also help to maintain results such as DMK Melanotech serum & cream. Despite that the patient has been doing all things instructed, it is still possible for the skin to re-pigment. In this case maintenance sessions may be required.
