What Is Pigmentation and Brown Spot Removal?
Uneven pigmentation and unsightly brown spots on the skin, such as brown spots, freckles or birthmarks, can be caused by aging, sun damage, genetics, previous tattoo removal and other factors. Any changes in a spot should be checked by a physician. This includes changes in color or shape. If the spot is benign, then it can be removed non-surgically. The ultra-precise PicoSure® laser system breaks down the pigments without heating the nearby tissues, leading to faster recovery times and fewer treatments necessary. Following up your PicoSure® treatment with ZO® skin health products will help you protect your skin and reduce or prevent the formation of future discolorations.
The Best Candidates for Pigmentation and Brown Spot Removal
Ideal candidates are those who want to remove uneven skin tone, freckles, brown spots, birthmarks or other discolorations. They have had any suspicious markings checked by a physician and have been informed that the spots can be removed safely. These individuals are also in general good health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of this procedure.
Planning Your Pigmentation and Brown Spot Removal
During your consultation, we will examine the treatment area, listen to your aesthetic goals, discuss the best course of therapy for your situation and answer any questions you may have. Depending on the extent of discoloration to be removed, you may need more than one treatment session for optimal results.
Preparing for Your Pigmentation and Brown Spot Removal
On the day of your procedure, you should avoid wearing any makeup or thick creams on the treatment area. PicoSure® therapy typically takes less than one hour, depending on the treatment zone and aesthetic goals.
The Pigmentation and Brown Spot Removal Procedure
At each treatment session the PicoSure® laser system will send extremely brief pulses of laser energy to the targeted area. Most patients find the procedure painless. If you wish, numbing cream can be applied to minimize any possible discomfort.
How Much Does Pigmentation & Brown Spot Removal Cost?
The cost of pigmentation and brown spot removal varies for each patient depending on the treatment goals, extent of change desired and other factors. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa®, Master®Card, American Express® and Discover®. Financing options are available through CareCredit® and Alphaeon™.
After Your Pigmentation & Brown Spot Removal Procedure
As you progress through your course of treatment, you will see the uneven discoloration begin to fade, with maximum results visible up to two or three months after therapy is complete. The rejuvenated effect of the procedure is long lasting. To maintain the effects as long as possible you should avoid sun exposure.
Getting Back to Normal Following Pigmentation & Brown Spot Removal
