Skin pigmentation is nothing more than an accumulation of excessive melanin in the upper layers of the epidermis. Previously, hyperpigmentation was fought with creams, peelings and nitrogen, but these means proved to be inefficient or even traumatic. Laser treatment made it possible to forget about freckles, melasma, age spots and brown spots on skin for good. In IPL Lab we remove the imperfections, be it sun spots or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and brighten your skin with our certified laser treatments.
Skin pigmentation can include one or many different pigment types or discolorations. To treat pigmentation successfully, it is crucial to identify the root problem and the pigment type. How does laser hyperpigmentation or melasma treatment work? The laser beam affects only melanin in the dark spots, so you should not be afraid of lightening the entire skin surface. We offer a solution for all skin types and all kinds of pigmentation!
Brown spots on skin are also known as hyperpigmentation, age spots, solar lentigines, or liver spots, depending on their cause. Mostly, they are a consequence of past sun exposure or artificial UV light used in tanning beds. Ageing skin is prone to age spots but in fact, dark spots may emerge at any time. Hyperpigmentation can be congenital. The laser beam frequency is adjusted individually for each patient and affects exclusively the excess melanin areas in the tissues. The laser heats up and evaporates excess pigment in dark spots leaving no trace without affecting nearby skin cells.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (also known as PIH and hyperpigmentation caused by acne) is a type of hyperpigmentation that can affect the face and body. It appears as flat spots of discolouration. These range in colour from pink to red, brown or black, depending on skin tone and the depth of discolouration. Laser cosmetology solved the problem of PIH most effectively and painlessly. With the help of a laser, it is now possible to permanently remove post inflammatory hyperpigmentation on the face, back and chest without injuring the tissues.
Melasma or mask of pregnancy is symmetrical skin discoloration showing as dark spots on skin. Melasma is thought to be caused by sun exposure, genetic predisposition, hormone changes, and skin irritation. Although it can affect anyone, melasma is particularly common in pregnant women and those who are taking oral contraceptives. Laser pigmentation treatment can safely eliminate melasma discoloration without side effects. Book your free skin analysis and consultation with one of our laser technicians today!
Pigmentation treatment is an elaborate procedure which should be performed strictly by a professional and, as with most skin treatments, it works best in a series of sessions. For good results, we recommend the packages of 5 and 10 sessions, depending on your pigment condition. We suggest using our medical cosmetic product and protecting yourself from UV exposure during and after skin pigmentation treatment!
You can save 1/2 price by paying for the whole package of sessions at once or pay the regular price every visit. You will probably need more than one session so why not get a 50% discount for the treatments paying package price? It is more cost-efficient and convenient than paying for each visit separately.
Melasma is caused by excessive melanin, the natural substance in cells that give color to skin, hair and eyes. During the melasma treatment the laser targets and breaks down the pigment into smaller particles that can be removed naturally by the body. It leaves skin warm, bright and smooth. Treating melasma is a gradual process that requires multiple sessions to produce effective, long-lasting results. The number of sessions required depends on the severity of your melasma. You will be recommended a course that is right for your condition. Typically it takes between 6-10 treatments for best results.
