WHAT IS HYPERPIGMENTATION?
Hyperpigmentation is an area that is different in color or texture compared to the rest of your skin. It can appear as red or brown spots and may develop anywhere on your face, neck, or body. Even though pigmented areas are often harmless, they should be analyzed as soon as they are noticed to rule out any underlying health concerns. Hyperpigmentation can take the form of birthmarks, sun spots, melasma, or other conditions and can cause self-consciousness because of its size or location. The med spa team at Horizon Medical Center in Schaumburg, IL can treat and diminish the appearance of pigmented lesions with the advanced Harmony XL PRO laser from Alma. Schedule an appointment with our talented team to learn if laser hyperpigmentation treatment can help you enjoy clearer, smoother skin!
HOW DOES LASER HYPERPIGMENTATION TREATMENT WORK?
Laser therapy with the Harmony XL PRO uses light energy to reduce the visibility of birthmarks, freckles, sun spots, rosacea, age spots, and a host of other pigmentation concerns. Treatments are performed in our comfortable, private treatment rooms and take between 15 – 30 minutes to complete. During hyperpigmentation treatment, our certified laser technician will pass the Harmony XL PRO handpiece over the pigmented areas, which will absorb the laser energy as new collagen is created within the skin. Over time, the area of hyperpigmentation should diminish, creating a more even result for your complexion. In many cases, these spots may initially darken before becoming lighter and fading away. A series of 3 – 4 treatments may be recommended to achieve ideal results.
What causes melasma?
There is no one specific cause of melasma, but there are a number of factors that can contribute to its development. Some of the most common causes include sun exposure, hormone changes, and medications like birth control pills. It is common to see melasma during pregnancy due to the increased levels of hormones like estrogen.
How successful is the Harmony XL PRO?
The Harmony XL PRO is a great option for treating melasma and other forms of hyperpigmentation in Schaumburg, IL. The laser is designed to encourage new collagen production that eventually lightens and fades dark spots. In some studies, the Harmony XL PRO was shown to be more effective than other laser treatments for melasma and can help improve overall skin tone and complexion.
