Here in Australia, pigmentation is likely a common skin concern amongst many of your patients. After all, we receive higher UV radiation levels than other parts of the world, plus we often have little cloud cover to diffuse the sun’s harsh rays, which leaves us vulnerable to pigmentary conditions. If you are looking to enhance your patient offerings to include more effective treatments for pigmentation, PicoSure by Cynosure is the ultimate laser skin treatment.
Pigmentation can present itself on the skin in various ways. Some of the pigmentary concerns your patients may experience include:
Also known as sun spots or age spots, solar lentigines are pigmented spots, usually light brown to black in colour. This type of pigmentation can appear anywhere on the body and is caused by exposure to UV rays.
Freckles are the small, pigmented dots that appear on the skin following repeated sun exposure. They tend to become darker in the sunnier months of the year and are most common in people with fair skin. For the most part, freckles are genetic.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) is typically caused by trauma to the skin, usually after acne, burns or aggressive clinical treatments. Resulting from an overproduction of melanin, PIH often worsens with exposure to UV rays.
While treatments such as microneedling, chemical peels and medical-grade skincare can address pigmentation to some degree, we strongly suggest adding laser treatments to your practice to give your patients the best result. In particular, our PicoSure laser is a game-changer when it comes to reducing pigmentation.
PicoSure is the world’s first, fastest and most effective picosecond aesthetic laser, specially designed to treat pigmentary concerns. This laser combines three wavelengths (532nm, 755nm and 1064nm) with Focus Lens Array technology to target specific areas of concern.
PicoSure uses high thermal picosecond pulses to target melanin, the cause of unwanted pigmentation. Thanks to its shorter wavelengths, PicoSure treatments can target specific problem areas without causing damage to the surrounding skin tissue. As the laser penetrates pigmented skin, the body’s natural healing process is triggered, sweeping away those damaged pigmented cells and replacing them with fresh collagen and elastin to create a smoother, clearer, more youthful appearance.
Better yet, PicoSure treatments are quick, easy and require little to no downtime. If you are ready to enhance the pigmentation treatments offered at your clinic, get in touch today to learn more.
