Laser for Spots Nairobi
It is the cumulative effects of sun exposure that allow for much higher risk of sun-damaged skin. UV exposure “triggers an excess production of melanin, the natural pigment in our skin, resulting in “solar lentigos”, AKA sunspots, age spots, or liver spots. These spots can appear in varying places on your body such as your hands, face, chest, or back.
However, the sun is not the only trigger that can cause changes within the natural pigment of our skin. Hormonal fluctuations and a condition called Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) also play a critical role in skin depigmentation.
How does Laser Spot Removal Work?
At Avané Clinic we use a unique combination of lasers whose energies are gently absorbed by the extra pigment (melanin) which stimulates your skin’s natural “melanin turnover” system which removes old melanin and replaces it with new evenly toned skin.
All brown spots are not created equal, so it is vital to properly identify your brown spot and customize your treatment accordingly.
Depending on the type, depth, and density of your pigmentation, from age spots to birthmarks to melasma, we have an array of 5 different types of energy frequencies that are emitted from lasers and three different kinds of energy pulses, making 15 different possible laser energies that can remove all hyper-pigmented discolorations.
Preparing for the Treatment
It’s simple. We want your skin to be as calm as possible during the course of your age spot removal treatments. For 10 days prior to your treatment:
Stay out of the sun
Do not use any products on your skin that irritate, stimulate or exfoliate your skin.
What to Expect during Treatment?
Generally speaking, the energy levels used for this treatment are relatively low. The frequencies of energy are customized and very precise, but the level of power used is low. You will barely feel it… and with a little bit of topical anesthetic, you won’t feel it at all.
After the Treatment
Immediately following most laser removal procedures, patients will experience some redness and slight swelling of the treated area, which usually dissipates within a few hours, though in rare cases may last a few days.
The pigmented spots typically change color. Some will get slightly darker and others may turn an ashen color. This is an indication that the laser energy was successfully absorbed into the melanin.
To enhance results and promote the long-term health of your skin, specially formulated medical-grade moisturizers, exquisite skincare products, and makeup (if desired) are applied to the treated area immediately after each procedure.
Additionally, hair growth may be temporarily impaired in the treated area, although it is not the intended purpose of this particular treatment. Pigmented skin lesions such as age spots due to sun damage and other factors begin to show results within a few days after the first laser treatment. Some of your spots may flake off your skin in 3-7 days, while other spots will gradually fade.
Laser for Hyper Pigmentation
Hyperpigmentation is caused by an increase in melanin production. Melanin, a skin pigment is responsible for the color of our skin, eyes, and hair.
Laser Tattoo Removal
The PIQO-4 switched and KTP lasers provide high levels of energy over very brief periods of time allowing for the reduction of many types of unwanted pigmented lesions or tattoos. During laser tattoo removal, PIQO 4 lasers are used specifically to target and microscopically “shatter” the pigment of the tattoo ink or lesion, dispersing it in the skin to be carried away by the body’s white blood cells.
Laser for Acne Scars
Laser treatment for acne scars aims to minimize the appearance of scars from old acne outbreaks. Laser treatment for acne scars focuses light on the top layers of your skin to break up scar tissue.
