What is Laser Hyperpigmentation Treatment?
Patients who are bothered by the look of hyperpigmentation, discoloration, or sun damage in their complexion can be excellent candidates for intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy at River Park Dental and Esthetics. An IPL photofacial is a rejuvenating skin treatment for hyperpigmentation concerns on the neck and face. Dr. Phing Saurer uses IPL photofacials to send intense pulses of light energy to ignite the natural regeneration process and increase the production of collagen. As the added nutrients take effect, you should see a healthier appearance, an improved tone, and less dark spots. Although a photofacial is not an invasive procedure, it can be highly effective and can produce impressive results for your complexion. Our Dublin, OH team employs the Alma Harmony XL PRO laser to carry out IPL photofacials and can offer you a skin analysis to see if this service can help renew your skin.
How Does Laser Hyperpigmentation Treatment Work?
Laser hyperpigmentation treatments using the cutting-edge Harmony XL PRO laser by Alma target the excess melanin, or pigment, in your skin with focused light to break it up, allowing the body to naturally expel it. Your treatment session begins with you seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms while your skin is cleaned and prepped. Although many say it isn’t necessary, we can provide a topical anesthetic ointment to supplement your comfort. The handpiece will be passed over your skin several times, according to your treatment plan. Most sessions can be completed in about 20 – 40 minutes, depending on your needs. After your treatment, you’ll be able to go back to your normal routine, but some may experience mild redness and swelling that typically goes away within 24 – 72 hours. During your consultation, we will give you aftercare instructions to ensure the best results.
