Removing pigement spots with the IPL
Pigmentation spots can disrupt the appearance of the skin and affect self-confidence. Fortunately, IPL laser treatment offers an effective solution to gently and effectively remove unwanted pigmentation spots. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light and is also known as photofacial or photorejuvenation. The treatment is particularly suitable for pigmentation spots caused by sun exposure, skin ageing or hormonal changes.
The IPL laser releases high-intensity light with different wavelengths, which specifically affects the pigment cells in the skin. The pigment cells absorb the light and are thus heated and destroyed. The body then naturally breaks down these destroyed pigments, making the pigment spots appear darker at first and then gradually fade. At the same time, redness can also be treated – a positive side effect of this treatment.
Are several treatments necessary?
Yes, in most cases several treatments are required to achieve optimal results. The number of sessions depends on the type and severity of the pigment spots. However, it is quite possible to remove the pigment spot with just one session. It is important to know that the pigmentations appear darker and “blasted” at first and are then broken down by the body and disappear.
