Laser technology has delivered a wide range of restorative methods for face and body rejuvenation. Lasers are concentrated beams of light that vary in intensity. They can penetrate your skin, repair its blood vessels and work on its deeper layers that are responsible for stimulating collagen formation.
Specific lasers are utilized to rejuvenate and lift your skin by treating wrinkles, pigmentation problems, and many other imperfections through a safe, effective, and comfortable procedure.
What Is Discoloration of Skin?
Any changes in the pigmentation of your skin that could make some areas differ from the rest, is called skin discoloration. These changes show themselves in the form of red, pink, brown, purple, blue, and black spots, making your skin look weak and uneven.
Some skin spots, such as birthmarks, are harmless, while there are others that indicate underlying health conditions. One of the most common reasons behind changes in your skin color is the shift in the melanin levels in your body, which could cause skin spots. Melanin is a substance in your skin that provides color and protects it from sunlight.
Hyperpigmentation Laser Treatment
Hyperpigmentation is a common disease affecting people of all skin types, in which specific areas of your skin get relatively darker compared to other areas. It occurs when the level of melanin in the body increases due to burns, acne, bruises, or other skin injuries and traumas.
The most common types of Hyperpigmentation usually develop as a result of:
- Skin damage: Problems like acne or eczema can lead to inflammation and cause pigment-producing cells to leave behind dark spots after the injury heals.
- Sun exposure: UV rays encourage melanin formation to protect your skin from sun damage, which is how sun exposure could lead to sun spots that must be taken seriously, though they are not necessarily problematic.
- Melasma: These are brown spots that develop in women during pregnancy. This form of Hyperpigmentation sometimes occurs due to hormonal changes or skin sensitivity to environmental factors.
While Hyperpigmentation is often harmless and does not require any treatments, most people who have experienced this condition are reportedly struggling for a solution. Laser technology, specifically Lumecca, has proven to be effective in treating hyperpigmentation.
What Is Lumecca?
Lumecca is a powerful, intense pulsed light (IPL) that has been regarded as an effective treatment for several skin conditions, including Hyperpigmentation. This device can help remove spots, spider veins, and other pigmentation problems through a quick and painless procedure.
How Many Sessions Are Required?
Lumecca laser is an anti-aging system that works fast, delivering remarkable outcomes after just 1-3 sessions. In some cases, however, it is necessary to employ other methods simultaneously for at least 4-6 sessions to gain satisfactory results.
What Are The Benefits?
Lumecca is a popular device due to its unique cooling part, allowing you to experience a comfortable skin restoration. Another advantage of Lumecca treatment is that this advanced method can target all skin colors, including significantly darker skins.
What Does Lumecca Treat?
Lumecca can improve the appearance of the skin after only one session, by removing age spots, sun damage, spider veins, rosacea (redness), freckles, port wine stain, leg telangiectasia, and Melasma.
Lumecca can be used to target all your body parts, though it is applied chiefly to restore those areas of your body that are more exposed to sunlight.
How Does Lumecca Work?
Lumecca targets pigmented areas using specific wavelengths of light that interact with the red and brown pigments of your skin so that the pigments absorb the light. Since this innovative method of radiation therapy is a very accurate procedure, the surrounding healthy tissues will not get damaged, making the treatment very safe and effective.
Patients have reported very few side effects, and skin reactions usually resolve within a few hours. Initial development will be visible a few days after the first treatment session. Your skin will continue to improve over time, with the final outcome appearing after 1-2 weeks.
If you have noticed spots on your skin, it is not too late to restore your skin. Give your skin a chance to enjoy a quick and visible development with the help of Lumecca. It can be the best choice for your skin if a qualified practitioner performs the procedure.
