How Does Laser Pigmentation Removal Work?
Hyperpigmentation usually appears in the form of brown spots, red spots, or freckles. The condition can also include darker patches of skin as a result of discoloration. The Candela GentleLase PRO is an advanced laser treatment designed to minimize the appearance of hyperpigmentation so you can enjoy a smooth and clear complexion.
The GentleLase PRO is a handheld device that delivers powerful, yet gentle laser light energy to the discolored pigments in the skin. This thermal energy solely breaks up dark melanin for easier metabolizing without harming the surrounding tissue. Over time and with multiple treatments, the GentleLase PRO laser can significantly fade pigmentation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Pigmentation Removal?
If you have sun-damaged skin to the point of dark patches on your face, neck, chest, or hands, laser pigmentation removal might be right for you. The best candidates for pigmentation removal are individuals with darker pigments against light-to-medium skin tones. Dr. Craig will help determine your candidacy for the procedure at the time of your initial consultation.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
Depending on the treatment area, Syneron Candela GentleLase PRO technology takes about 30-minutes to perform. GentleLase PRO uses integrated cooling tips to manage any discomfort associated with laser heat energy. Patients with ultra-sensitive skin can also opt for a topical anesthetic beforehand. In most cases, you’ll be in and out of your appointment within the hour.
What Results Will I See?*
Laser pigmentation removal is a gradual and progressive procedure. You should begin to see darker pigments fade about 8-weeks after your in-office treatment. While visible improvement can be seen after just one session, most patients need at least two GentleLase PRO procedures to see maximum benefits.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is little to no downtime needed with GentleLaser PRO treatments for pigmentation removal. Aside from avoiding excessive sun exposure, you’re free to go about your normal routine without restrictions. Some patients will experience redness and swelling after a pigmentation removal session. Most side effects dissipate after a few days.
