#3: Laser Pigmentation Treatment
Have you ever looked in the mirror and thought about how it would feel to have beautiful, even skin without having to wear foundation or concealer? Many patients struggle with pigmentation issues such as sun damage, age spots, and acne scarring. If you are looking for a more even skin tone and glowing, healthy-looking skin, laser pigmentation treatments may be an option you would like to explore.
The Benefits: For pigment and vessel treatments at Dr. Keusch’s office, we use Palomar Icon Laser technology. This FDA-approved laser uses fractional laser light to break down pigments from the skin. There is a wide breadth of ways this laser can help with pigmentation issues for patients.
The treatment itself can take just 15 minutes, depending on the area that you are targeting. You may feel mild discomfort, but you will not have to worry about a long recovery time afterward.
Before you arrive for your treatment, you want to ensure that you do not have any creams, lotions, or other products on your skin. You’ll also want to stay out of the fun for the two weeks leading up to your appointment. If you’re interested in learning more about laser pigmentation treatment, Dr. Keusch or Meaghan Birakis PA-C, can discuss the option with you in more detail during a consultation.
The Challenges: After the procedure, you may experience any of the following: redness, swelling, flaking, and irritation. However, after a few days, it should subside, and the results of your treatment will be entirely noticeable.
Laser pigmentation treatment is not for everyone. To determine if you are the right candidate for this procedure, please schedule a consultation in our office. Your provider will ask you important questions to help you understand your needs and determine the best approach, including if laser pigmentation treatment is right for you.
