Facial Laser Treatment for Pigmentation: Key to Spotless Skin

Posted on September 16, 2021 By Deepika Samant

The occurrences of dark spots, patches, and uneven skin tone are common and usually physically harmless. However, it can still be the cause of your emotional distress and frustration. To feel healthy and good, you need to treat and get rid of these dark spots that usually affect the facial skin. Though several home remedies can help you lighten the spots, in more severe cases, you should consider taking the professional facial laser treatment for pigmentation. 

But until and unless you have complete knowledge about what the treatment is and how it works, you might not be able to decide whether or not you should go for it. 

So, let me walk you through every bit of detail associated with the facial laser treatment for pigmentation—the process, types of pigmentation you can treat, and the types of skin it is suitable for. Thus, you will be able to make an informed decision. 

Types of Hyperpigmentation Facial Laser Treats

Hyperpigmentation is the overproduction of the pigment ‘melanin’ that gives the skin its natural color. It can be due to various reasons such as excessive sun exposure or skin inflammation that may result in dark spots or patches. The facial laser treatment for pigmentation can help treat various conditions such as:

Age Spots: Age Spots or sunspots occur due to prolonged exposure to the sun and are the most common types of pigmentation. These are easy to get rid of with facial laser treatment for pigmentation. 

Melasma: Melasma occurs due to hormonal imbalance and mostly affects women during pregnancy. Hyperpigmentation can be usually seen on parts of the face and stomach.

Post-inflammatory Pigmentation: This type of pigmentation occurs due to some injury to the skin or due to inflammation. Facial laser treatment is not the ideal solution to treat post-inflammatory pigmentation but specially formulated pigment inhibitor serum can help reduce the problem. 

Facial Laser Treatment for Pigmentation – The Procedure

Laser is used to targeting the pigmented area on the skin which absorbs light. The facial laser treatment for pigmentation works by breaking down the pigment and dispersing it into the skin, without harming the surrounding areas. 

The pigmented spots will either flake off or fade away. Also, the melanin, when broken down, will remove pigmentation from your face, leaving you with even-toned and spot-free skin. It may take more than one session to achieve the desired results.

Dos and Don’ts of Facial Laser Treatment for Pigmentation

The recovery time after the procedure may vary from person to person. However, there are certain things you must keep in mind during this period. 

  1. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. Due to skin tenderness, you must avoid sun exposure for at least 1-2 weeks. Also, using a sunblock with an SPF of at least 30 is recommended. 
  2. For the first few days after facial laser treatment for pigmentation, do not use any abrasive skincare on the treated area. 
  3. Do not expose the skin to high temperatures (such as a sauna and hot showers). It is also advised to restrict certain activities like swimming, which can expose your skin to a higher risk of infections.
