Got some stubborn freckles or hyperpigmentation you’d like to get rid of for good? Scroll down and learn more about how this procedure can help you out.

What is laser pigmentation removal?

Laser pigmentation removal uses a gentle yet powerful laser to zap away unwanted dark spots on your skin. This procedure is usually done for cosmetic reasons, such as minimizing age spots, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and in some cases, helping to fade a permanent tattoo that a patient wants to get rid of.

Furthermore, laser pigmentation removal can also be used to remove or improve the appearance of unwanted and unsightly birthmarks.

Fortunately, laser pigmentation removal doesn’t have any side effects and some patients notice an immediate improvement after one session. The procedure doesn’t just help remove unwanted pigmentation, but also helps minimize scarring, which can often occur with other treatments meant to provide the same results.

What are the benefits?

The primary benefits of laser pigmentation removal typically include the diminished (if not eliminated) appearance of freckles, acne scars, melasma, and other forms of hyperpigmentation. 

Aside from those, the procedure also provides benefits such as:

  • Providing skin with a radiant glow
  • Minimizing pore size, making skin appear much smoother
  • Killing bacteria that contributes to acne breakouts
  • Helping fade permanent tattoos
  • Improving the appearance of scars

Laser pigmentation removal is also very safe and affordable compared to similar procedures. There’s also very little downtime required, and aside from the treated area looking a little red and inflamed afterwards, there aren’t a lot of side effects.

What should you do before and after treatment?

Before your laser pigmentation removal session, you should avoid exposure to direct sunlight. If that’s not possible, remember to wear sunscreen with an SPF rating of 30 or higher when outdoors. 

After the procedure, some common side effects may include blistering, redness, and swelling on the area treated. Your provider might advise applying a cold compress to relieve the affected area in the meantime. You should also refrain from scratching or picking at any scabs because it can compromise the healing process or worse, lead to scarring.

Usually, your skin will calm down in about 24 hours. During this time, it’s best to avoid applying makeup or skin care products with active ingredients that could irritate the skin.

Who is the treatment for?

Laser pigmentation removal is for anyone who wants to eliminate dark spots and/or get rid of regrettable tattoos. It’s usually safe and effective for most skin types and tones as well. 

However, you should always consult a licensed dermatologist first to determine if laser pigmentation removal is the right treatment for your needs and goals, like what many of our satisfied patients in Palo Alto have done.
