How Laser treatment can solve your pigmentation woes

27 May 2015

In the past, we were led to believe that adopting a healthy lifestyle and having good genes was all you needed to achieve flawless skin. Nowadays however, a clear complexion can be gained quickly and easily with a little help from beauty experts.

Laser treatment is a fast, virtually painless solution for many skin issues, including pigmentation, acne scarring, rosacea and ageing. But how does it work and what can you expect from the treatment?

  • Before treatment. Before you undergo any treatment, you’ll be given a skin assessment so the expert can determine the right solution for your problem. You’ll then be given a skin patch test to check that your skin responds well to the treatment before undergoing the recommended course.
  • Treatment. Your face will be thoroughly cleansed and the appropriate laser for your skin type and concern will be applied to the target area. While not painful, expect the treatment to feel as though an elastic band is being pinged against your skin.
  • Results. You can expect unwanted red veins to disappear immediately after treatment, while areas of pigmentation will initially appear darker before crusting over in the next few days and then flaking off. You can speed up this process by using an exfoliant three days after treatment.
