REMOVAL OF PIGMENTED LESIONS
We fight against pigmented lesions in several ways.
The most innovative methods include photorejuvenation that uses unique IPL technology.
Pigmented lesions can be removed by a laser as well as the so-called chemical peel (AHA acids, TCA peel, etc.). However, the most important is photoprotection of the skin against UV radiation.
When treating younger women or a mild form of hyperpigmentation we prefer using chemical peel with glycolic acid or deep peel with trichloroacetic acid that remove slight pigmentation and at the same time they whiten visible spots. This causes the top layers of cells to peel off with the help of regenerating serum. If you decide for chemical peel, take into account that several treatments will be necessary until hyperpigmentation disappears completely.
Another effective treatment method is the application of laser beam that penetrates into the lower layer of the skin and then smashes pigment into small parts. These are gradually pulled out of the body.
Pigmented lesions can be successfully removed with IPL (intense pulsed light). It belongs to the most effective and modern methods today. The skin containing the pigment absorbs the targeted light impulse, which thanks to the created energy destroys the pigmented lesion. IPL destroys pigment cells structures in a minimally invasive way and at the same time it is friendly to the surrounding fibres and does not burn the skin.
In less serious types, lightening agents seem to be the best treatment. Their effect is visible after several weeks or months. If you decide for any kind of skin lightening, take into account that during summer months the skin should relax and it is necessary to wait with the procedures until the autumn.
