Woman having laser treatment on pigmentation Unwanted Pigmentation? Enjoy Clear Skin with Laser Treatments

Whether you're dealing with melasma or hyperpigmentation freckles, living with patches of pigmentation on your skin can be frustrating. If you're ready to have a more even skin tone, consider one of the following forms of laser therapy.

How Laser Treatments Remove Unwanted Pigmentation

DOT Therapy

Dermal Optical Thermolysis (DOT) therapy is one of the most commonly used laser therapies for skin rejuvenation. Not only can it help produce a more even skin tone by reducing the appearance of acne scars and other forms of hyperpigmentation, but it can also help reduce the signs of aging. The reason this treatment is so popular is because of its precision and excellent results. DOT therapy uses a laser to create a "dot" pattern that consists of thousands of near-microscopic skin perforations. The areas around these perforations, however, are kept intact and undamaged. As a result of this highly precise procedure, your skin is able to heal much faster. There may be side effects such as slight redness and skin peeling after your treatment, but in most cases your skin will be fully healed and rejuvenated within a week. It may take a few treatments to experience the full results of this procedure, but quick healing times mean that you'll be able to book your next session sooner rather than later.

Fraxel Re:pair

If you're looking for an incredibly effective laser therapy to help with your unwanted skin pigmentation, Fraxel is one of the best laser therapies on the market. This treatment can help reduce the appearance of pigmentation from sun damage and acne on the skin, as well as treat sensitive skin around the eyes and on the neck. One of the biggest benefits of this laser therapy is that it comes with a much lower risk than other types of laser skin rejuvenation treatments while offering similar or better results. In addition, this particular laser therapy has been approved by the FDA to treat a variety of skin issues you might be experiencing.

Fraxel Re:store

While this laser therapy shares part of its name with the previous treatment we described, Fraxel Re:store is a bit different than Fraxel Re:pair. This laser therapy specifically targets your skin with a process that's designed to stimulate collagen production. And since collagen helps the skin retain a smooth and supple look, this is the perfect laser therapy to help you attain that even skin tone and firm skin you want. And this treatment doesn't just exist for the face, either. In fact, this laser therapy is also commonly used on the chest and hands. If you want to reduce the appearance of age spots and other pigmentation on your skin, this is a great treatment option to consider.
