Pigmentation in for example the face, décolleté, or the neck can be significantly reduced with our IPL and laser treatment.
Our treatment does not only reduce the pigmentation, but also significantly improves the skin quality.
Pigmentation can occur everywhere on the body. The spots often are most unpleasent in the face, décolleté, neck or on the hands.
Sun damage (UV light) activates pigmentation in the skin. Sun damage during youth may be a cause of pigmentation at an older age. Pigmentation spots can also be hereditary, or caused by medication. Acne, wounds, or abrasions can also leave pigmentation in the skin, often in the form of scars.
When pigmentation has a hormonal cause, such as with pregnancy or contraception (the pill), we speak of melasma.
For the treatment of pigmentation we use the latest Ellipse IPL (Nordlys) and several lasers. The energy of the IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and the lasers breaks down the pigmentation into tiny particles. This causes the pigmentation to fade.
Most of the times we see a significant improvement after 2 treatments already. Possibly 2 to 4 treatments are required depending on the amount and depth of the pigmentation.
Over 20 years of experience
Medisch Laser Centrum has over 20 years of experience with the treatment of pigmentation. As such, our laser specialists are extremely capable of compiling a personal treatment plan for you.
In case you decide to have a pigmentation treatment it is important that the skin is as pale as possible. It is therefore advised to avoid any exposure of the skin to the sun 2 to 3 weeks before and 2 to 3 weeks after the treatment.
Our IPL and laser method fades pigmentation and improves the skin significantly. The skin rejuvenates, strengthens and smoothens.
Sunlight (sun damage) and/or smoking can however damage the skin again, thus causing new pigmentation. A good sunscreen (factor 30 or higher) is therefore advised.
Improved skin quality
The positive side effect of the treatment of pigmentation is that the skin quality improves. The skin rejuvenates and smoothens, and the pores refine. The local bloodstream and production of collagen are also stimulated, causing the skin to refresh and strengthen.
A pigmentation treatment starts at € 60,- per treatment.
During the first consultation it is possible to enquire into the possibilities and costs of a personalized pigmentation treatment. A consultation costs € 30,- which will be discounted from the price of the eventual treatment.
