Find out if our laser dermatology could improve the look and feel of your skin.hyperpigmentation

We all know that as much as we wished our skin would remain youthful and healthy, there are a variety of factors that affect the look and even tone of your skin. Everything from years of basking in the sun to skipping the sunscreen to pollution can take its toll on your skin. Luckily, our Kaysville, UT, cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Jacqueline Silkey is here to tell you how laser pigmentation removal could help.

What is laser pigmentation removal?

This special laser directs energy waves to the skin where pigmented cells are quickly heated up and destroyed with the laser without affecting the healthy skin around it. This non-invasive cosmetic treatment can quickly and effectively reduce and even completely eliminate pigmentations in the skin.

What skin problems can this laser treatment treat?

You may want to consider laser pigmentation removal if you are looking to get rid of any of these conditions:

  • Freckles
  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Hyperpigmentation (uneven skin tone; brown patches)
  • Birthmarks

Just about any part of the face or body can be treated with this simple, painless skin treatment.

What goes into getting laser pigmentation treatment in Kaysville, UT?

Your cosmetic dermatologists will choose the proper laser to use based on the type of pigmentation you want to treat. From there we will direct the laser over the skin. While the laser shouldn’t be painful you may notice some light burning or stinging.

Again, depending on the type of pigmentation and the severity of the skin condition, we will determine how many treatment sessions you will need. Some patients may be able to get the results they want in just one session while those with deeper pigmentations may require multiple treatment sessions.

What makes the procedure a popular option for many people looking to improve the overall look of their skin is that there a little to no recovery period with minimal side effects.
