PL/Laser for Pigmentation Treatment
Pigmented lesions such as age spots or freckles can be successfully lightened or removed with IPL. These treatments are non-invasive, suitable for both the face and body and will result in a more even skin tone. IPL releases short pulses of filtered light that are readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within freckles, sun spots or liver spots. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells.
Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark skinned or tanned individuals. However, large, dark, mottled or raised pigmentation cannot be treated and may need to be checked by a dermatologist.
Large, dark moles should not be treated, nor should lesions covering a large part of the body. The pigmented marks that respond the best are superficial lesions such as those caused by sun damage (sun spots) and freckles.
