Laser Removal for Sun Spots is Both Safe and Effective

January 04, 2018

While everyone loves to go to the beach, sit in the sun, and get a nice tan, there are also some negative side effects. Sun spots, for example, are a result of exposure to ultraviolet sunrays and are actually signs of skin damage. For many sun worshippers, there is a solution at hand - laser removal for sun spots can provide visible improvement to skin that is both safe and effective.

Laser removal for sun spots

With high-tech equipment, laser pigmentation treatment uses heat to selectively destroy sun spots, allowing for healthy skin to emerge. Today, laser removal for sun spots is not painful or uncomfortable, and requires no “downtime” after treatment. Best of all, overall skin texture is improved and skin tone reveals a more radiant appearance.

For most skin types, laser removal for sun spots produces good results in a few short sessions. However, for darker, very pigmented sun spots, more in-depth treatment may be required

Laser removal for sun spots addresses various types of sun damage. After treatment, there may be some skin redness and minor itching, but these are short lived and quickly diminish with the proper post treatment skin care. With laser treatment, it’s possible to target specific pigmented areas without doing damage to any of the surrounding skin.

Laser pigmentation options

Skin discolouration, at any age, comes in many forms – sometimes referred to as liver spots, sun spots, or age spots. At IGBeauty Studio, laser pigmentation treatments make use of Intense Pulsed Light, an advanced laser technology that resurfaces and rejuvenates the skin. IPL technology is Health Canada approved and is ideal for both men and women.

Intense Pulsed Light is used as a treatment for a wide range of skin conditions, including acne scars, broken capillaries, natural freckles, and even birthmarks. Treatment approach will vary with the severity of skin spots and sessions last about an hour. IPL is non-invasive and therefore non-surgical. A proper skincare regimen is suggested with IPL.

Laser pigmentation treatment requires no recovery time, but it’s important to stay out of the sun. In fact, after treatment, nothing should get in the way of the body’s natural healing efforts. At IGBeauty Studio, various other skin treatments can be effectively combined with IPL (treatments like chemical peels, jet peels, and micro-needling procedures).
