Laser Pigmentation Removal

Pigmentation Removal With Candela GentleLase PRO

If you’ve spent a lot of time out in the sun throughout the years, chances are that you have some hyperpigmentation on the face, chest, and hands.  Hyperpigmentation usually appears in the form of brown or red spots; they tend to resemble freckles.  Hyperpigmentation can also include darker patches of skin as a result of discoloration.  The Candela GentleLase PRO minimizes the appearance of hyperpigmentation so you can enjoy a smooth and clear complexion.

The Technology

Dr. Craig uses Syneron Candela GentleLase PRO technology to directly target and remove discolorations within the skin.Dr. Craig uses Syneron Candela GentleLase PRO technology to directly target and remove discolorations within the skin.  The GentleLase PRO uses a handpiece to deliver laser light energy to the discolored pigments in the skin; this energy is delivered without harming the underlying blood vessels.  The light breaks down the pigments, which are then absorbed back into the skin. Over time and with multiple treatments, the GentleLase PRO laser can help fade pigmentation so you can enjoy a smoother, clearer complexion.

Syneron Candela GentleLase PRO technology takes about 30 minutes to perform, depending on the treatment area.  GentleLase PRO uses a cooling device to help manage any discomfort associated with laser heat energy. Most patients will need 2 treatments to see ideal results.

The Recovery

Patients will need to wear sunscreen immediately after treatment and avoid the sun whenever possible.  Some patients will experience redness and swelling after a pigmentation removal session.  Most patients see these side effects dissipate after a few days.
