There are many causes of facial pigmentation. The lack of proper sun protection, picking at your pimples, hormonal changes, and high stress levels can all cause pesky pigmentation spots and patches to appear.

Sure, there are skincare products that you can use to try and reduce the appearance of these dark spots or keep skin dullness at bay. However, the results might not be as effective or quick as you would like them to be.

This is why one might consider a combination of skincare and doctorled laser treatments to tackle stubborn pigmentation.

One such treatment? MY Medical Aesthetics’ Picosure Pro.

So what makes this better than the usual laser treatments? Picosure Pro delivers laser energy in ultra short pulse durations, creating an intense photochemical impact known as PressureWave.

Thanks to the combination of a unique 755nm wavelength of laser light and a specialised lens that is able to convert the laser energy, it is able to shatter pigments in the dark spots and patches into tiny
particles, which are then easily eliminated.

More importantly, the gentle pressure doesn’t damage the surrounding skin, thus making it not only effective, but also kind on the skin.

The result is a clearer, more even-toned and radiant complexion with fewer treatments and lower fluence. Like many laser treatments, the Picosure Pro is able to address common skin problems like freckles, post blemish spots, acne scars, enlarged pores and sundamaged skin.

It also helps to brighten the skin tone, lessen the look of fine lines, and rejuvenate skin to reduce the signs of ageing.

But where this laser truly shines is in its ability to target melasma, nevus of Ota and Hori’s nevus, which are more difficult to treat.

What to expect

It only takes five to 10 minutes per session – this excludes the time for numbing cream, which can take about 20 to 45 minutes prior.

And if you’re worried about pain, rest assured that the discomfort is minimal, thanks to the numbing cream and cold air provided during the procedure.

Though some people might feel a tingling sensation, the doctor says this is perfectly normal and that it should subside in an hour.

Others might also notice a mild swelling on the targeted areas, or skin redness that can last for a few hours, or up to two days.

But don’t worry, these are only temporary. With little to almost no downtime, the Picosure Pro is an effective and non-invasive treatment that addresses a variety of skin concerns – pigmentation, skin roughness and dullness – with ease.
