Dark Spot Removal Sudbury
Over time, as a result of the aging process and various environmental factors, pigmentation issues begin to form on the skin. Issues like melasma, age spots, and sun damage can make a person feel self-conscious and embarrassed. At Sudbury Med Spa, our Q-switched laser treatment may be able to help you get rid of those unwanted pigmentation problems.
The Q-switched laser effectively removes unwanted pigmentation from the surface of your skin. It can be used on hyperpigmentation issues such as age spots, along with issues of uneven pigmentation such as freckles and a generally uneven skin tone.
How Does the Laser Work?
During treatment, the Q-switched laser emits an invisible beam of light that targets the hyperpigmentation on your skin. This safe treatment focuses specifically on the pigmentation you’re getting removed and won’t cause harm to your surrounding skin tissues.
The pigment in melasma and age spots absorbs the energy from the beam of light. This energy breaks up pigment cells in the skin so that they can be naturally reabsorbed and then disposed of by the body. Removing these pigment cells from the skin leads to clearer skin and a more even skin tone.
The laser has a strong advantage over light chemical peels and other treatments that barely scratch the surface. It reaches into the deeper levels of the skin, giving you longer-lasting and more effective results.
Benefits of Laser Treatment for Melasma/Age Spots/Sun Damage
There are many benefits to using the Q-switched laser to treat melasma, age spots, and sun damage. This treatment is extremely efficient and precise. The whole treatment only takes about 15 minutes to complete, perfect for busy professionals on the go. You can have your treatment during your lunch break and return to work like nothing’s changed.
The procedure is completely safe and virtually painless. There’s no downtime or healing period. All you’ll have to do is follow our post-treatment instructions carefully.
It’s also quite effective. The Q-switched laser is capable of breaking down deep excessive pigmentation, meaning it can reach those deep skin layers that most other cosmetic treatments barely touch. You’ll be left with glowing and smooth skin and an even skin tone.
A couple of visits will typically be enough to remove most of the treated pigmentation. Unlike other cosmetic treatments, you won’t have to return every few months to maintain your skin’s appearance. Once the pigmentation has been taken care of, there are creams you can use to prevent it from developing again.
What Should You Expect After the Treatment?
You might feel a tingly or slightly burning sensation on the treated areas for anywhere from a couple of minutes to an hour. After this time, the sensation will fade. Make sure to follow our post-treatment directions to the letter. If you take good care of your treated areas, you can expect lasting effects. Once you get rid of those pesky age spots, you can feel more youthful and fresh again.
