About the procedure

Hyperpigmentation is a common skin problem that causes certain areas or parts of the skin to become darker. Usually it is a harmless problem which is caused by excessive amounts of pigment, such as melanin in the skin. Hyperpigmentation affects both men and women, and is characterized by areas of darker skin. While it is most common on middle-aged and elderly people, hyperpigmentation can also occur on younger people.

Some people are genetically more prone to hyperpigmentation (overactive melanin in the skin). For some women birth control pills or pregnancy can cause pigmentation disorder. It is hard to tell why exactly skin becomes hyperpigmented as to tell why some people have problems with acne, dry or sensitive skin, and others do not.

Laser pigment spot removal ensures great results, gentle and painless healing, and minimal health risk. Revolutionary yellow light QuadroStarPRO Yellow laser is used at Sapiega clinic to remove pigment spots.

The number of treatments depends on the type of spot, duration of its existence and other factors. Usually 1 treatment is enough, but in other cases there could be a need for more.
It’s recommended to take a 4 week break after each treatment.

It is recommended to avoid ultraviolet rays, like exposure in the sun or soliarium, on the treated areas for at least 4 weeks until the treatment.

There can be no pathological changes (inflammation, fester and other) on the area that will be treated.

Laser removal of pigment spots is painless. The laser handle with a colling system is pressed against the skin and after activation of the light pulse client might feel a little sting together with some warmth on the area. The laser beam penetrates the skin and the top layer of skin and melanin pigment absorbs the light energy, thermal effect rapidly heats melanin, which separates from the dermis. Right after the laser beam the pigment will get darker, then slowly fade away completely. There might be redness noticed on the skin after the treatment. A light crust might also appear on the treated area that will go away within 5-7 days.

It is recommended to congeal the treated area until you will feel a pleasant feeling. You should avoid the sun exposure and intensive sun (solarium) without sunscreen on treated areas for at least 6 weeks. Use sunscreen (not less than SPF 50) if you have to be outdoors.

The procedure is never without a risk. The most common side effects of laser removal of pigment spots:
