Laser Hyperpigmentation Treatment
What Is Laser Hyperpigmentation Treatment?
Many men and women have hyperpigmentation, which is a prevalent cosmetic concern referring to darkened patches that develop on the surface of the skin. Laser therapy, or Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL), uses light to reduce the appearance of dark spots on the skin. Unlike previous laser treatments that removed the top layer of skin, this treatment directs intense pulses of light only at the damaged tissue in the area.
The healthy tissue is left untouched. Light therapy can also help treat broken capillaries under the skin and reduce scarring. Because the laser targets damaged skin only, treatments produce a smoother, more toned appearance.
