What is skin pigmentation?
Skin pigmentation refers to the colouring of the skin. This colouring is determined by a pigment known as melanin. Melanin is produced by specialised skin cells, and if these cells are damaged it can impact melanin production.This can result in either darker patches or lighter patches on the skin and other skin changes. This causes uneven skin tone and a tired, aged appearance.
The major causes of changes in skin pigmentation is excessive sun exposure, hormonal changes, age, skin injury and inflammation.
Common types of pigmentation:
- Sun spots
- Age spots
How does skin pigmentation laser treatment
in Mumbai work?
Laser therapy to treat pigmentation works by using focused beams of light energy to target and break down pigments in the skin. The energy is absorbed by the pigmented areas, causing them to fragment into smaller particles. The body’s natural processes gradually eliminate them, leading to a reduction in the appearance of pigmentation.
The treatment’s precision enables it to target specific pigmented areas without affecting the surrounding healthy skin. Depending on the type and depth of pigmentation, different laser wavelengths can be utilised. The treatment stimulates the skin’s natural healing response, prompting the production of new, healthier skin cells and a more even complexion over time.
It is important to note that multiple sessions can be required for optimal results, and individual outcomes can vary based on factors such as skin type, pigmentation severity, and the chosen laser technology. Consulting with a skilled dermatologist or aesthetic professional is essential to determine the most suitable approach for your unique skin pigmentation concerns.
There are a wide range of benefits to laser therapy for your skin pigmentation:
- Precise and highly-targeted
