Millions of people develop skin pigmentation conditions at some point in their lives. For many, this results in emotional distress and embarrassment. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to do something about it.
Pigmentation is due to the deposition of melanin which is a coloring matter. The melanin is produced by specialized cells called melanocytes. Other pigmented terms include hyperpigmentation (too much pigment), hypopigmentation (too little pigment) and depigmentation (loss of pigment). Advanced Skincare provides several solutions to resolving your pigmentation conditions.
ActiveFX fractional CO2 laser is a high-energy beam of laser light that interacts with the skin’s surface causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthier looking skin. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving small areas of untouched skin. This allows for a much faster healing process and enables you to return to normal activities sooner. The ActiveFX laser noticeably improves skin tone and texture and stimulates new collagen formation. This treatment is great for darker complexions under the strict supervision of an experienced board-certified Brentwood dermatologist.
The Diolite 532 is an advanced compact laser system for the treatment of vascular and pigmented skin lesions including telangiectasia, rosacea, spider angiomas, spider veins, neovascularization around scars, cherry angiomas, port wine stains, lentigines, dermatosis papulosis nigra, keratoses, poikiloderma of civatte, and freckles. This laser light is absorbed by oxyhemoglobin (bright red blood cells carrying oxygen) and melanin/pigment causing decomposition or destruction by heat of unwanted cells while leaving your healthy cells intact. This quick, comfortable and effective procedure significantly reduces pigmentation conditions leaving the patient feeling more self-confident and rejuvenated.
The Revlite Laser provides a non-invasive procedure that improves scars, wrinkles, spots, unwanted tattoos and pigmented lesions. The Revlite Laser works without damaging the skin surface. It works beneath the skin stimulating collagen production. As the deeper skin tissues are heated, they remodel producing improvement in skin texture, tone, wrinkling and pores. Lasers work to treat skin conditions by producing a single wavelength (color) of light that is absorbed by pigment. The Revlite Laser uses a computer to control the wavelengths so that the right wavelength is used for each situation.
The Sellas fractional laser is a new kind of skin treatment that eliminates pigmented epidermal cells and stimulates collagen remodeling. This laser was developed in Korea and was originally designed for Asian and Hispanic skin as it is effective on darker complexions that are limited in treatment options due to hyper and hypo-pigmentation. However, it may be used in certain cases on all skin types. SellasFX is an ideal treatment for uneven pigmentation with less patient discomfort and downtime.
