Before finding a solution to a problem, whatever it may be, one must first know what the problem is and what causes it. Therefore, in this article, we will provide information about skin pigmented lesions, their types, causes and most importantly – what the most effective method for their removal is?
A pigmented or hyperpigmented lesion, as often called, is a change in the color of the skin in a certain area. Pigmented lesions usually refer to dark spots on the skin, which include age spots, freckles, solar lentigines, etc. You have probably noticed that they appear on the face, arms and décolleté. This is because the reason for their appearance is prolonged exposure to sunlight, and these are areas that are most unprotected in the warm seasons. With the arrival of summer, people go on vacation, to the seaside or the pool to get a tan. Skin tone depends on melanin, which is produced in the body, and the sun stimulates this process. The more melanin accumulates in the skin, the faster the skin gets tanned. It serves as natural protection against UV rays, but its overproduction results in the appearance of small dark spots on the skin, which make the complexion uneven and interfere with our self-esteem.
The best prevention against the appearance of pigmented spots on the skin is to use sunscreens with a high SPF and have moderate sun exposure. But what if we already have sunspots?
Most often, dermatologists recommend laser treatment as the most effective method for removing pigmented spots. Here are the benefits of laser therapy and the way it works.
The word “laser” stands for Light Amplification of Stimulated Emission of Radiation. The high-energy light emitted by the laser is converted into therapeutic heat, which can penetrate the tissues of human skin to a safe depth and treat a number of medical and cosmetic problems. Modern lasers offer not only laser hair removal but also the precise treatment of pigmented spots, scars, acne, rosacea and others.
At Diyana Aesthetic Center, we offer laser facial therapy that will help you fight bothersome spots and redness so that you have beautiful and healthy skin. We chose the Lumecca technology, which is used by the most renowned dermatologists in the world. It is safe and extremely effective. With a few treatments, dark spots on the skin fade and even disappear completely.
Lumecca is the most powerful pulsed light for the treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions. It acts on the surface of the skin without damaging it. Usually, the heat energy only causes redness in the treated area, which disappears within a few hours after the therapy.
To completely remove pigmented spots from your skin, it is necessary to first consult a dermatologist, who will assess the condition of the affected areas and prescribe the required number of treatment sessions. There are cases in which the spots disappear after 1-3 procedures, but this depends on the type of skin and the settings of the device. However, leave this concern to the competence of our dermatologists and the capabilities of the laser. What you need to do before laser therapy is to avoid long exposure of the treatment zone to the sun for at least one month.
After successful removal of the pigmented lesions with the laser, your dermatologist will recommend the use of protective creams that will reduce the risk of new pigmented lesions.
