Discoloration can detract from the natural beauty of your skin, causing an uneven skin tone. The good news is that there is a pigmentation reduction treatment that can eliminate skin discoloration so you can achieve a uniform complexion. At 360 Wellness Spa in Grand Rapids, MI, we offer pigmentation treatment plans to safely and effectively remove discolored skin cells and encourage healthy cellular renewal.
So many products and at-home DIY solutions promise to treat skin discoloration. However, few, if any, of these treatments are effective, and even if they do work, it often takes months of consistent use to see even the slightest improvement in your skin. If you’ve tried different skincare products, prescription topical products, or even the popular DIY at-home lemon juice treatment for discoloration but still haven’t seen any improvement in the appearance of your skin tone, you’re not alone.
We offer effective pigmentation treatment plans using the Lutronic™ Clarity™ II and LaseMD Ultra™ that break down those discolored skin cells, targeting the source of hyperpigmentation, and forcing the body to heal and repair those cells, replacing them with healthier younger ones free of any discoloration.
Investing in a professional skincare treatment design to target discolored skin cells can help you finally achieve the results that all those skin care products and at-home DIY solutions can’t. Our treatments are quick, non-surgical, and results-driven. Some of the treatment benefits include the following:
In the skincare world, pigmentation is another word for discoloration. Discoloration can appear as brown spots, age spots, melasma, the pregnancy mask, redness, or as patches of discolored skin. Aging, sun exposure, hormonal changes, products, and certain medications can all contribute to hyperpigmentation.
This condition is very difficult to treat with topical products, which is why our professional laser treatments are so effective. They accomplish what all those products cannot, and the results are permanent.
The Lutronic™ Clarity™ II and LaseMD Ultra™ devices eliminate discolored skin cells by using laser energy to break down those cells. The laser wavelengths are specifically designed to target melanin in the skin while protecting the surrounding area and rejuvenating the skin. The body responds to the treatment with an increased cellular regeneration rate and by increasing natural collagen and elastin production.
These devices can treat and eliminate the most common types of discoloration, including redness, melasma, sunspots, age spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation, and sun-damaged skin.
They provide an effective solution for patients with rosacea who want to reduce the appearance of redness and eliminate broken capillaries, vascular lesions, and hemangiomas. They can also treat oversized pores, wrinkles, and fine lines. We can use them to treat discoloration on the face and the body.
Lutronic™ Clarity™ II and LaseMD Utra™ treatments are quick and comfortable. We will begin by cleansing your skin and providing you with protective eyewear. Then, we’ll use the right device to target your desired treatment areas. The laser energy will destroy the discolored skin cells, and promote cellular regeneration, resulting in healthier and younger skin cells.
The treatment is pain-free because each device is equipped with advanced cooling technology that ensures a comfortable treatment experience. Treatments typically take 30 minutes from start to finish, and you can resume your normal daily activities once they’re over.
There’s no downtime after a pigmentation reduction treatment. However, you will need to follow some aftercare instructions. These instructions promote healing post-treatment and ensure you’ll achieve the best results. You must avoid sun exposure for the first few days after your treatment since your skin will be more sensitive to the harmful effects of UV rays.
You’ll also need to wear quality sunscreen and protective clothing or a hat or visor to protect your skin when exposed to the sun. You’ll need to temporally discontinue certain products, especially those with stronger anti-aging ingredients or retinol.
This treatment is designed to deliver permanent results. While it can treat existing skin discoloration, it can’t prevent future discoloration, but there are some steps that you can take to ensure that you maintain uniform skin after your treatment. Sun exposure is the number one cause of premature aging and contributes to discoloration. While you can’t completely avoid the sun, you can take steps to protect your skin daily.
Invest in quality sunscreen, and wear it daily, regardless of the forecast, to maintain an even complexion. Additional protection, like a hat or sunglasses, when in the sun can help you avoid future pigmentation changes. Additionally, eating a healthy diet, avoiding smoking, and making healthy lifestyle choices can all contribute to healthy skin. Scheduling regular in-office treatments designed to promote skin health and even skin texture and tone will also help you maintain optimal skin health.
Patients of all ages with different skin types and pigmentation concerns make good candidates for a pigmentation reduction treatment plan. Whether you want to treat brown spots, hyperpigmentation, patchiness, redness, or rosacea or eliminate vascular lesions detracting from the appearance of your skin, we can design a treatment plan with the laser treatment that’s right for you.
We offer complimentary consultations before beginning treatments so we can learn more about your skin, treatment goals, and your background. Once we confirm that the Lutronic™ Clarity™ II or LaseMD ULtra™ pigmentation treatment is right for you, we can move forward, customize your treatment plan, and help you achieve beautiful, uniform skin.
If skin discoloration has made you feel less confident about your appearance, we can initiate a skin transformation. The Lutronic™ Clarity™ II and LaseMD Ultra™ lasers can eliminate discolored skin cells to promote healthy and uniform skin. If you want to learn more about these lasers, we can answer all your questions, confirm which is right for you, and then begin a process that will get you one step closer to your best skin to date.
