About Pigmentation and Melasma
Pigmentation is simply the coloring of the skin; the skin acquires its coloring from a pigment known as melanin. If your body’s production of melanin is compromised, it can result in pigmentation concerns such as dark spots in the skin.
Melasma is a common skin concern that appears as patches of brown skin on various regions of the face. While melasma hasn’t known to be dangerous, it can be easy to feel discomforted when it becomes noticeable on your skin.
What is IPL photorejuvenation?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) photorejuvenation is an advanced, non-invasive treatment option to correct melasma and unwanted pigmentation such as dark spots. Backed by the advanced engineering of Lumecca from InMode, IPL photorejuvenation can promote younger-looking skin in many parts of the face including the:
- Chin area
- Around the mouth
- And more
Rays of intense pulsed light are absorbed into the deeper layers of skin as heat, carefully stimulating the body’s production of collagen: an important protein that helps our skin look young and healthy. As collagen is restored, the skin is revitalized to reflect a clearer, more radiant appearance.
How can IPL photorejuvenation benefit my skin?
IPL photorejuvenation can address many common skin inconsistencies such as:
- Unwanted pigmentation
- Sun damage
- Port wine stains
- Cherry and spider angiomas
- Vascular lesions
Through IPL photorejuvenation, Dr. Riehs and his team can help improve the tone, texture, and appearance of your skin. If you would like to learn more about this exciting treatment, ask our team during your consultation!
What is Fraxel™ laser therapy?
The original fractional laser treatment, Fraxel™ laser therapy is an advanced means of refreshing the skin from melasma and unwanted pigmentation. By stimulating the skin’s natural production of collagen, the Fraxel™ laser can renew skin cells beneath the superficial layer to help break down patches of melasma or pigmented skin. The Fraxel™ device is highly precise, working only in the designated treatment area to grant minimal to no downtime. Fraxel™ laser therapy can easily fit into any lifestyle as it is:
- Clinically proven as a safe and effective treatment
- A simple treatment
- Able to grant results that can’t be seen through topical solutions alone
Fraxel™ laser therapy is also ideal for improving the appearance of other common signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, uneven texture, and more. Hundreds of thousands of people have been treated with Fraxel™ laser therapy and have seen amazing results.
