Sunspots are temporary phenomena on the photosphere of the Sun that appear visibly as dark spots compared to surrounding regions. Sunspots usually appear in pairs, with pair members of opposite magnetic polarity.
Unlike the white light from a bulb that is a blend of all the colors of the rainbow, a laser is a focused beam of light that has just one color. When its intense rays target a problem area on the skin (a brown spot, a scar, an unwanted hair follicle), the laser’s light can destroy that pigment or tissue while sparing the skin around it.
The spot will then turn darker and sloughs off completely within one to two weeks. At this point, lighter skin starts to blend in as it heals, promoting an even toned appearance.
The laser can also be used to treat deeper pigment problems, including melasma. Often called the ‘mask of pregnancy,’ melasma appears as a dark ‘stain’ on the skin and can be triggered by hormonal changes. Although doctors have yet to find a cure, a combination of laser treatment and skincare prescription products can manage the condition very well.
Patients will feel a difference in the texture of their skin after the first treatment with the laser. Because collagen takes time to grow, you will continue to see improvement over the next weeks.
After 4-6 sessions, you’ll notice a dramatic improvement, including smaller pores, more even tone, softer texture.
Many patients choose to have monthly or quarterly touch-up sessions to maintain their results.
