What’s the best laser for pigmentation?
Pigmentation can be a frustration to those who are affected by it. Characteristically, pigmentation changes the natural tone of the skin in isolated areas, whereby the skin either goes noticeably lighter or darker. Hyperpigmentation, Melasma and discolouration as a result of acne scarring are the most commonly treated types of pigmentation within many aesthetic clinics. These concerns see a darkening of the skin in small patches, often developing on the face, chest, shoulders and hands. If you visit https://www.nassifmedspa.co.uk/conditions/pigmentation-sun-damage/ you can learn more about pigmentation; how it develops and what can be done to treat it.
What’s the best laser for pigmentation?
Our excellent reputation and standards in patient care surpasses us here at Nassif MedSpa UK in Manchester’s Media City, and we see many patients who are looking for a way to remove areas of pigmentation from their appearance. When a person contacts us and asks “what’s the best laser for pigmentation?”, we would always recommend a treatment with one of our Sciton laser procedures.
Dr. Nassif has been using Sciton lasers in his Beverly Hills clinic for many years, and Nassif MedSpa UK is the only clinic outside of London to use this laser. In our experience it is quintessentially outstanding, producing bespoke results for anti-ageing and a more evenly toned complexion. The Sciton Joule device has a variety of modes which are used to address a multitude of common concerns. When it comes to issues with pigmentation, the following applications can be used:
- BBL HERO (BroadBand Light High Energy Output) – this device uses visible and infrared light (400 – 1400nm) to deliver non-ablative phototherapy to the face and body. While BBL uses Intense Pulses of Light (IPL), Sciton named the technology BroadBand Light, or BBL, to avoid being lumped in with what they view as often less powerful, less consistent, low quality IPL devices. BBL made a name for itself seven years ago as the world’s most technologically advanced IPL device, with the promise of more consistent outcomes and science showing its efficacy. Transmitting intense pulses of light to the skin will heat the superficial layers to encourage skin cell regeneration and restore an even tone to the skin. BBL HERO can be used to remove the appearance of freckles, age spots and thread veins on the face as a result of rosacea, tailoring the treatment plan to suit your individual needs. Can be used on the face, chest, arms, hands and back.
- HALO – the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. It uses both ablative and non-ablative lasers to help resurface the skin and remove the visibly damaged cells. A number of concerns can be addressed with Halo, including skin discolouration, for a clear and radiant complexion. Thermal energy is generated by this laser which stimulates the fibers in the underlying structure of the skin, encouraging cell renewal and an increase in collagen and elastin production. This gives the added benefit of not only destroying the pigmented cells, but also firming and strengthening the skin to aid the replenishment of a healthy cellular structure. It can be used on the face, chest, arms, hands and back. Halo has proved to be one of the most effective devices for reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles, but it isn’t just used for this purpose as it can also correct issues such as: discolouration, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, sun damage and scarring. With many other laser treatments, it is usually men and women with lighter pigmentation skin complexions that experience successful results. The reason for this is because the laser is designed to target imperfections that are visible, which can often be missed with skin tones that are darker.
HALO has unique dual-wave technology and can therefore resurface around 25 – 30% of the skin, in comparison to other lasers which may only cover 5%. As a result, the outcome of your treatment will be more noticeable and dramatic than other lasers.
The pigmentation issues mentioned in this post can build up over a number of years before the symptoms become noticeable. Yet with Sciton laser solutions, the concern is eliminated within just a few quick and easy sessions.
The use of lasers both in the medical and aesthetics worlds, is becoming more popular with patients and medical professionals alike. Treatments are proving to be effective, producing the desired results in a shorter time, and it’s also pain free. Suitable for all areas of the face, decolletage, hands or arms, Sciton is the ultimate pigmentation treatment. Contact Nassif MedSpa UK today and wave goodbye to pigmented skin.
