A lot of people have some kind of vascular pigment lesions like sunspots, birthmarks, a spot or mole, freckles, etc. Skin pigmentation can be caused due to exposure to sun or due to aging. Irrespective of what the cause is, pigmented lesions are only spots on the skin wherever there is a high concentration of melanin. In most cases, skin pigmented lesions are just a cosmetic concern however, in some cases they could be an early indication of tumors or skin cancer.
Features and Benefits
Laser treatment for pigmented lesions is an effective non-surgical procedure to treat vascular and pigmented skin lesions and other common aesthetic problems. It is a safe and effective procedure which requires minimal downtime. There is absolutely no harm to the healthy skin around the treatment area and the treatment does not result in any side effects. The procedure is pain free and does not require anesthesia or any kind of topical numbing agents. The procedure is quick and provides visible results quickly.
The light energy delivered will heat the upper layers of your skin, stimulating your skin cells to generate new collagen. In addition, the photothermal energy will target and eliminate many of the fine vessels that cause the unwanted melanin responsible for the pigmented lesions (age spots). This will help restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking.
Vascular and Pigmented Lesions FAQ
Why is pulsed-light treatment preferable to topical acne medications?
Topical acne medications often irritate the skin, and more than 40% of acne bacteria are insensitive to oral antibiotics. Furthermore, topical treatments may produce severe side effects, are costly, and usually require at least 3-4 months of therapy.
What is pulsed light?
Pulsed light systems use hand-held flash lamps that emit gentle pulses of light which are absorbed in different skin lesions. Excellent long term results are achieved when treating hair, superficial capillaries, skin pigmentation, acne and other skin lesions
How does light-based technology work?
Light based technology is based on a method called “selective photothermolysis,” which works by selective destruction of a specified target without damaging surrounding tissue. When treating textural complaints such as fine wrinkles and large pores, the light stimulates the growth of collagen which makes the skin glow and look more youthful.
Are pulsed-light aesthetic treatments painful?
No. During the procedure, a slight, momentary stinging sensation may be felt, but not pain.
Are pulsed-light aesthetic treatments safe?
All pulsed-light treatments are non-invasive and safe, with minimum side effects. The key elements vital to practitioners in any aesthetic treatment system are positive treatment results and safety.
How does the treatment work on superficial blood vessels?
The applied pulsed light is absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin in the blood within the vessel, causing the blood to coagulate and the vessel to break up into particles that are naturally filtered away through the lymphatic system of the body.
How does the treatment work on pigmented lesions?
Targeted areas absorb the applied light, breaking the pigmented lesion into tiny particles which then disappear or rise to the surface of the skin as scabs that are naturally exfoliated within 1-2 weeks.
How many treatments are required?
The typical regimen is an average of 4 treatment sessions, spaced 4 weeks apart.
“After I turned 50 I really started to hate what I saw in the mirror. All the lines and wrinkles really made me feel bad about myself and my appearance. I took a chance on a Pixel Perfect skin treatment and I love the result. Take it from me, everyone should have a 50 year tune up with Pixel Perfect.”
“As a kid I had really bad acne. Treatment and time helped it go away, but the scars stuck around. They were very pronounced and evident on my face, especially my upper cheeks and around my jaw line. My doctor recommended Pixel Perfect from 221 Degrees Salon & Spa and I’m ecstatic with the outcome. My only regret is that I didn’t try Pixel Perfect for acne scars a long time ago.”
