Pigmentation Removal

Pigmentation is an incredibly complex and wide-ranging skin condition and can be due to multiple causes, such as chronic and/or accumulated sun damage, environmental exposures, medications, hormones, inflammation, trauma, genetics, benign growths to malignancy, or skin cancer. Once you visit your dermatologist and a diagnosis is established, then you both can formulate a plan on how to safely and effectively treat the brown spots. The most common hyperpigmentation we sunspots (also called lentigines), post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (marks from pimples, bug bites, or prior inflammation), and melasma.

Starwalker

The StarWalker is a revolutionary performing laser that’s in the Fotona family that uses photoacoustic rather than photothermolysis energy. Traditionally lasers use heat to treat pigmentation, however, studies have shown over and over again that it would create more pigmentation due to the inflammatory nature of how the skin reacts to heat. Thus, rather than using heat, the StarWalker uses acoustic shockwaves that breaks apart the melanosomes (skin’s pigmentation) and have the lymphatic system remove the pigments from the body naturally. The StarWalker is one of the only effective lasers in treating Melasma and hyperpigmentation. This is because the StarWalker harness the power of the Pico laser, nanolaser, and Q switch laser. Because of the highly controlled wavelengths and precision with micro pulses, StarWalker is safe for all skin types.

PicoWay Laser

PicoWay® is an advanced laser solution for the treatment of acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines, pigmentation, and even hard-to-treat melasma. Brought to you by Syneron Candela, this revolutionary technology boasts three wavelengths and uses ultra-short picosecond (trillionths of a second) pulses to treat a broader range of skin types in fewer treatments and with greater comfort. PicoWay® can also treat all colors of tattoos.  

PicoWay® delivers ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy targeted at unwanted pigment while leaving the surrounding skin untouched. These pulses break up the pigment into smaller particles that are more easily eliminated by the body’s natural processes. Because it emits less heat than traditional lasers, PicoWay® provides a more comfortable treatment with fast results and virtually no downtime. After treatment, patients may experience temporary discoloration or reddening of the skin surrounding the treatment site. Over a few days, the targeted lesions will darken and slough away. Adopting a pigment-regulating daily skincare routine that includes broad-spectrum sunscreen will be highly recommended to prevent subsequent spots.

PicoSure Laser

The PicoSure Laser is the first breakthrough in laser technology; delivering the shortest pulse of energy (in pico seconds range) rather than the nano-second range used by most lasers – making it safer, faster, and creating better results for pigmentation. It breaks up ink particles and pigmentation using powerful shock waves, rather than with heat, meaning our practitioner can treat your tattoo or pigmentation more aggressively without having to worry about unwanted side-effects such as burning, scarring, or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Apart from stimulating collagen, PicoSure triggers and collagen production on the surface elastinlevel to target pores, textural irregularities, tightening the skin and evening out complexion.

Our practitioners are familiar with all the different skin types and will consult with our medical doctor prior to the treatment to see if the setting is the most appropriate.
