TREATMENTS FOR PIGMENTATION
Laser Toning / Carbon Peel / Hollywood Peel
Laser Toning is an effective non-invasive technique which is used to address skin concerns like tone and texture imperfections caused due to aging and environmental factors like Sun’s UV rays, pollution and smoke.
How Does Laser Toning Work?
Laser toning is a non-ablative treatment which doesn’t remove or damage the superficial layers of the skin but causes controlled injury in the dermis which is the layer of skin which lies beneath the epidermis. The energy produced by the laser heats up the dermis and stimulates a skin repair response which causes collagen regeneration.
Further, via subcellular selective photothermolysis, Laser Toning helps to break down the pigments caused by epidermal melanocyte (pigment producing cells) which is then cleared by the body’s immune system.
Benefits Of Laser Toning
A) Stimulates Collagen Production
One of the key benefits of Laser Toning is that it Stimulates Collagen Production. This in turn addresses a gamut of skin concerns. Collagen is a wonder protein that helps keep your youthful appearance intact. It does so by maintaining skin elasticity and improving the skin texture, tone and color. This aids in:
Reduction Of Fine Lines And Wrinkles
As the skin elasticity improves with collagen production, the skin becomes firmer and there is visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin Restoration And Rejuvenation
Collagen production aids skin restoration and rejuvenation which gives the skin a supple and youthful look and helps it to glow from within.
B) Addresses Blemishes And Scars
Another important benefit of Laser Toning is that it helps address blemishes and scars caused due to various skin conditions like Acne, Melasma, Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation, Freckles and Rosacea.
Laser Toning has proven to be an effective method for treating Melasma particularly. It was observed that traditional treatments resulted in destruction and death of pigment containing cells which led to inflammation and was followed by repigmentation or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Since the fluence used in Laser Toning is very less, there is no occurrence of death of cells which reduces the chances of recurrence of pigmentation significantly.
C) Non- Surgical Procedure
It is a safe, painless non surgical procedure with zero downtime and long lasting results.
D) No Side Effects
At Dr. Rakhavi Midhun Skin and Hair Solutions, we use FDA approved Laser Lutronic Spectra along with time tested protocols. There are absolutely no side effects of this treatment. One may experience some redness after the procedure which vanishes within a few minutes to few hours of the treatment.
What Is The Procedure Like?
Depending on your skin concern, Dr. Rakhavi Midhun recommends the number of sessions along with a tailored skincare regime which is to be followed pre and post sessions. Usually it is suggested to undertake 6-8 sessions with a minimum gap of three weeks.
Like any other laser treatment, during Laser Toning, a protective eye gear is provided to the patient and then a beam of laser light is targeted towards the affected area.
