Pigmentation Treatment – $150

Improve-Skin-Tone-and-Texture1-e1459800782851

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment supported with microdermabrasion and vitamin A peels can all help to reduce pigmentation, age spots, freckles and birthmarks.

About skin pigmentation

Brown spots, liver spots, age spots, sun spots, sunburn freckles, lentigos, or senile/solar lentigines are associated with premature aging and exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun.

These marks range in colour from light brown to red or black and are located in areas most often exposed to the sun, particularly the hands, face, shoulders, arms, decollete,  forehead, and the head if bald. Most are harmless but all are aging and may be unattractive.

Café au lait and other pigmented birthmarks are localized areas of increased pigmentation in the skin, which are present at birth.

The Skin Pigmentation treatment

The Chromolite IPL is the most recently developed treatment available for removing pigmentation marks. The IPL removes the areas of excessive pigmentation leaving the texture and colour of the skin natural and unchanged

Most brown birthmarks will fade with treatment but some reoccur. Brown age spots may fade or disappear with a single treatment.

This treatment will not prevent the development of new separate areas of pigmentation. Regular and careful use of sunscreen is essential if new areas are to be prevented. We recommend daily usage of a SPF30 facial protectant cream.

How Skin Pigmentation treatments works

The specially designed IPL light is absorbed only by the cells containing excessive concentrations of pigment (melanin) and destroys the pigment granules. It does not destroy the surrounding tissues or remove the normal skin colour. The light pulses produced by the IPL feels similar to a flicking rubber band and for most people is not too uncomfortable.

Immediate whitening is followed within 15 minutes by reddening. For 7 – 10 days the area will look like a bruised scab, which eventually peels off.

How effective is Skin Pigmentation treatment?

Greater than 95% fading is usually achieved with age spots and sunburn freckles. Birthmarks are not as predictable and the degree of lightening may vary.

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on the area to be treated, usually three to five treatments are required, two weeks apart. Some birthmarks may require re-treatment.

Just had the best Microdermabrasion ever at this Spa. Lucie is very friendly, knowledgeable and she gave me tons of pointers on how to look my best. On top of that I got an awesome free massage on top of the microdermabrasion for free to from the promotion. Great service, great staff, great price.

I tried all home remedies, then went to the dermatologist for my pigmentation, and none of them worked. I went to Lucie's for consultation, and she was very helpful. She explains everything thoroughly. I have uneven skin tone which has been my problem for so long, until I had a few dermabrasions. The result was amazing, my skin looks so smooth, what a big difference! I have made the right decisions to come to Lucie's Medispa.
