Laser discoloration removal
Laser discoloration removal is a non-invasive and, above all, effective method of removing skin spots from various parts of the body.
The treatment is most often chosen by people who are unable to get rid of unsightly discolorations with the help of available brightening cosmetics and acid peels. Laser discoloration removal allows you to get rid of stubborn stains, as well as to even out skin tone.
About the procedure
Discoloration is the result of a disorder of the melanogenesis process, which is responsible for the production of skin pigment. Their background may be hormonal or genetic. In addition, discoloration can be caused by excessive exposure to UV rays or inflammation. Sometimes discolorations can be removed with special cosmetics. However, for many people, the only way out is to use laser discoloration treatment. Laser discoloration removal is a procedure that brightens and evens out the skin pigment. It is most often performed on places that are difficult to hide, i.e. around the face, neck and cleavage. Direct indications for laser discoloration removal are:
- pigmentation disorders,
- shallow pigmentation changes,
- deep and intense pigmentation changes.
What does the procedure look like?
Laser discoloration removal is a non-invasive, painless procedure that does not require convalescence. During it, only a gentle warmth is felt, therefore it does not require the use of local anesthesia. The treatment time is about 15-30 minutes. A laser is used to perform the procedure, the energy of which is absorbed by the melanin present in pigmentation changes. As a result of the laser action, cells that contain excess of this dye are destroyed and removed. The laser treatment is very precise, which means that it does not damage healthy skin near the discoloration. Immediately after the procedure, redness may appear, but it will disappear after a few hours. Importantly, initially the discoloration will begin to darken, but after a few days the exfoliation process will begin, as a result of which the treated area will become brighter and healthier, and the discoloration will disappear. In order to completely get rid of discoloration, 3-5 treatments are usually required, although with larger lesions it may be necessary to perform 10 sessions with the use of a laser. The exact plan of treatments is determined individually in consultation with the doctor.
Who is the treatment dedicated to?

The treatment can be used by patients who complain about excessive discoloration on the skin or their intense pigmentation, as well as people who want to get rid of age spots, discoloration caused by hormonal changes or the effects of photoaging.
