Do you suffer from pigmentation spots? Almost everyone has to deal with pigmentation spots over the years. Pigment is also seen as the new wrinkle, more and more people experience this as skin aging. At Skin Project we can treat pigmentation easily and safely.
Pigmented spotson the skin are accumulations of melanin (pigment), visible as a dark discoloration of the skin. When the skin is exposed to too much sunlight, the pigment cells can become confused, produce too much melanin or give irregular pigmentation. Hormone fluctuations or inflammation and wounds also affect the pigment cells.
Various treatments are possible with pigmentation spots. Which treatment works best depends on your skin type and type of pigment. A treatment for removing pigmentation spots can be done by laser treatment or chemical peeling. During a free and no-obligation consultation, we are happy to give you appropriate and personal treatment advice.
Laser treatments will fade or even completely disappear pigment spots, giving you an even and fresh look. In addition, the collagen in the skin will be stimulated and this will lead to skin tightening. With a peeling, the skin structure will refine, pores will shrink, wrinkles and discolorations will decrease. This creates a fresher skin color and a smooth and even skin.
An effective method to remove superficial pigmentation is Light Flash Therapy, also known as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). At Skin Project we work with the Lumecca. The best and most safe way to remove pigmentation spots. Due to proper light distribution and built-in cooling system, the Lumecca is suitable for all skin types, even for pigmented skin.
The treatment starts with inspecting and cleaning the skin, after which the settings are tailor-made. We start with a test pulse and a layer of cooling gel that provides extra comfort. The required number of pulses is then applied to the treatment area. Each pulse emits a flash of light with a spectrum of wavelengths. This special light absorbs the reddish brown color of the pigmentation spot in the skin.
A flash of light feels like a small prick in the skin, a short heat sensation, which disappears immediately after the pulse. An additional advantage is that the heat in the skin stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The handpiece has a cooling system, making the treatment well tolerated.
After the treatment, the skin may be a little red, which is why a post-treatment cream will be applied and, if desired, Oxygenetix camouflage. These products have been specially developed for application after cosmetic treatment and ensure that the recovery of damaged skin is accelerated.
The Lumecca is CE and FDA certified, which ensures the safety of the equipment.
A chemical peel is also called a chemical peel. With a peeling, the top layer of skin cells is removed. This renews and fades the skin, sometimes the pigmentation even disappears completely. The skin structure will refine and this creates a new, fresh, smooth and even skin.
The treatment starts with cleaning the skin. Then the chemical peeling is applied with gentle movements. Many people experience this as a burning sensation. After the treatment, the skin is immediately cooled, which reduces the burning sensation.
What effect can you expect after an IPL treatment or chemical peel?
The recovery of the skin after an IPL treatment or chemical peel takes about 7 to 10 days. On average, 1 - 5 treatments are required, with an interval of 6 weeks.
Important to know
The skin should not be sun-tanned before an IPL treatment. The skin may swell slightly and become red after treatment, and small crusts may also develop, but this is always temporary.If desired, we can also advise you on the right post-treatment cream and foundation. These products have been specially developed for application after cosmetic treatment and ensure that the recovery of damaged skin is accelerated.
