PIGMENTED LESIONS TREATMENT

At Flawless Image & Health we take pride in eliminating brown spots with the use of the Palomar StarLux™ Pulsed Light and Laser System. Virtually any part of your body with sun and age spots or freckles can be safely treated. The face, chest, shoulders, and arms are the most popular areas for treatment because they have typically had the most sun exposure. Both discrete spots and skin densely covered with freckles respond well to treatment.

Hyperpigmentation is a common condition where the skin develops dark spots or patches in some areas in comparison to the surrounding skin. Skin discoloration may develop by trauma to the skin, as sun spots or age spots, and melasma which are common reactions to sun exposure and aging.

Depending on your own body’s healing capabilities, many individuals develop hyperpigmentation after cuts or burns. Those who have had severe acne tend to develop hyperpigmentation and scarring once the acne as passed. Those who are prone to hyperpigmentation should avoid excessive picking or scratching of the skin as this may cause enough damage to signal your skin’s natural response which is to hyperpigment.

Pigmented Lesion  in NYCSun spots or age spots are brown discolorations which are flush with the skin usually present on the face, neck, chest, and back of the hands otherwise known as liver spots. It is a common condition developed when there is an excess of melanin deposits in the skin.

Melasma, another form of hyperpigmentation, is a uniform brown color usually seen over the cheeks, forehead, nose, or upper lip. Hyperpigmentation due to Melasma may appear through sun exposure as well as hormonal changes such as during pregnancy, puberty, and by taking oral contraceptives.

At Flawless Image & Health we use the Palomar StarLux™ Pulsed Light and Laser System that is exceptionally effective at treating hyperpigmentation at a much more comfortable energy level. There is no need to apply a topical anesthetic or gel beforehand, and you can realize superior results in just one to three treatments. When the handpiece is placed on your skin, it will feel cool and comfortable. When the pulse of light is delivered, you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation.

The mechanism of pigmented lesion removal is based upon selective destruction of melanocytes and melanosome-containing epidermal keratinocytes. The visible light delivered by the Palomar StarLux™  treatment is selectively absorbed by the pigmented spots on your skin. It's the heating of the pigmented cells that causes the therapeutic effect. The lesion darkens and crusts after treatment. You may notice a slight reddening of the surrounding skin. This typically subsides within a couple of hours. Over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade and flake off.  The actual treatment will only take a few minutes. And, since there is no need to apply gel or any topical anesthetic, your total appointment time can easily fit into you lunch hour.
