This new, non-invasive approach reduces the appearance of sun-damaged skin and is effective in reducing or eliminating age spots.
Pigmentation and Sun Damaged Skin
Hyperpigmentation can occur on the skin for a variety of reasons. However, most often, it is due to an increase in melanin in one area of the skin after extended sun exposure. You may also find yourself with hyperpigmented spots due to your genetics or due to past treatments that you had that irritated your skin and created dark spots.
Pigment, tone and textural issues come in many forms. Signs of aging and sun damage leave unwanted freckles and age spots and leave the skin’s appearance looking dull, uneven and aged.
Colour correction is a highly desired procedure. With over 40% of the population susceptible to pigmentary concerns and 71% of consumers seeking tone and texture improvement,1 CUTERA can provide a customized solution to address individual concerns, regardless of skin type.
The Unpigmented Truth
Discrete pigmented lesions, whether freckles, lentigines or age spots require individualized treatment options. The laser wavelength, energy delivered and spot size must be uniquely customized to address the patients concern and skin type.
Photoaging is a combination of browns and reds and must be treated simultaneously to alleviate both chromophores. For global color correction, the treatment of choice has been intense pulsed light, which is achieved with Cutera’s Limelight. Also, our Laser Genesis procedure has gained worldwide popularity for achieving brighter, more uniform skin without downtime.
