Melanin(Dark Pigment in the skin) gives skin its natural colour. when melanin is abnormally concentrated in one area of the skin, resulting in pigmentation or pigmented lesions in the skin. So pigments or pigmented lesions are like dark spots on the skin surface.
As pigmentation and pigmented lesions are like dark spots on the skin, they can only be removed by creating a sudden burst of energy very high in intensity targeted at these dark spots. Its like producing energy in a sudden burst instead of a continuos wave. Imagine tipping a dump truck filled with sand all the way up and then opening the door and letting the sand fall out in quick motion. The energy produces form the sand is much higher than if the door was opened and the truck was slowly tipped back. This sudden peak power is what gives Helios-III, world’s first Fractional Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser the ability to treat pigmentation and pigmented lesions more effectively.
The number of treatments will depend on the depth and amount of melanin pigment present in the skin. Most brown or black spots can be removed or lightened after 4 – 5 treatments.
The sensation is often described as a “Hot Pinch” feeling. The sensation only lasts for fraction of a second and you may feel a warmth feeling. Everybody tolerates the pigmentation removal without any topical anesthetic cream, which may be used to numb the skin for very sensitive individual.
Treatments are performed every 4 weeks apart. Pigmentation & Pigmented Lesions continue to fade in between each treatment. The interval allows skin heeling & fading to maximize before next treatment.
Helios-III can remove brown age spots, liver spots, freckles, lentigo and many brown birth marks.
