What are the symptoms of facial pigmentation?
Facial pigmentation, also known as hyperpigmentation, is a common skin condition that can manifest in a variety of ways. Problems with pigmentation typically result in changes to the skin’s color and, occasionally, texture.
Dark spots, freckles, moles, rosacea (redness), and spider veins are all common symptoms. Additionally, acne can leave behind pink or red marks that are difficult to heal.
What causes facial pigmentation?
The health of your skin is influenced by a variety of factors. Facial pigmentation can be caused by a variety of factors in addition to normal aging:
In the sun: can result in age spots, moles, and freckles. from hormonal changes that cause melanin to be produced too much, resulting in dark spots Diet: can cause flushing and redness. Some people also have a genetic tendency to have problems with their pigmentation. If you have very fair skin or a family history of skin cancer, this may be especially true.
How is face pigmentation treated?
The ICON fractional laser system is used by the staff at Danvers Family Doctors, P.C. to treat and resolve common pigmentation issues. The laser uses photorejuvenation technology to focus powerful beams of light on damaged areas of the skin. The cells of dark spots, freckles, or pigmented lesions fall away as a result of this process, revealing new, healthy skin.
Your doctor can treat multiple problem areas in one ICON treatment, which can last as little as 30 minutes.
What outcomes can I anticipate?
Spots that have been treated for facial pigmentation typically become darker and may take on a crusty appearance before gradually peeling off.
Most people see excellent results after just one or two sessions with the ICON laser. Because each person’s skin is unique, your provider collaborates with you to develop a treatment plan that achieves your desired outcomes. You can keep your results by taking good care of your skin, avoiding too much sun, and drinking enough water.
