Pigmentation / Rosacea
PIGMENTATION TREATMENT / VASCULAR LESIONS TREATMENT
What is a sun/age spot?
What is rosacea?
What are broken capillaries?
The answers to these questions are very simple.
Age spots, otherwise known as sun spots or hyperpigmentation marks normally occur from overexposed skin to the sun. It takes approximately 27 years for a pigmented lesion to darken and develop its complete tone of pigment. The darker a lesion becomes, the deeper it sinks into the dermis of the skin, and the more laser Dynamic Pulse Control (DPC) treatments it may take to rid of it completely. For this reason, it is advised that one sees a professional Medical Skin Care Therapist at the first sign of a sun/age spot. Hyperpigmentation can also occur from scars.
Using DPC Technology, Canada MedLaser’s Medical Skin Care Therapists penetrate the light to various levels of the epidermis and dermis in order to bring out the pigmented lesions. Immediately, they become slightly darker in pigment. This is a sign that progress was made. Over time, the lesion turns into a crust-like surface, and falls right off. (Yes, really).
With each treatment, the hyperpigmentation becomes lighter in colour, until it completely diminishes.
Rosacea consists of an overabundance of broken capillaries in a particular area of the face. The causes of this could be due to genetics, through extreme weather conditions, lifestyle and improper skin care.
With DPC Technology, the light is automatically attracted to the dark, red pigment held within these spider veins. Through photothermolysis, the vein is gradually coagulated, and does not absorb the blood, causing it to become invisible to the naked eye.
At Canada MedLaser, each of our patients are handed a copy of pre and post care treatment instructions to follow in order to ensure their safety and maximum benefit of the treatment.
