These light patches or 'spots' appear symmetrically on the cheeks and around the eyes. These are generally a result of hormonal changes during the aging process or sun exposure. This can also occur during pregnancy or in women taking birth control pills.
Your skin contains a brown pigment called melanin. The amount of melanin in your skin determines your actual skin color. When produced in excess, either by exposure to the sun or as a result of other factors, it forms a concentrated deposit that can result in darker patches.
It is a unique two-part procedure involving the application of a photo-enhancer with laser energy to reduce visible pigmentation. At the same time, laser toning not only improves the texture and unevenness of the skin, but it also reduces pore sizes and fine wrinkles.
In general, if you have melasma you should avoid the sun whenever possible because exposure to the sun can worsen the problem. In addition, prolonged exposure to the sun can limit the effectiveness of your treatment.
Applying a good sunscreen after laser toning treatment will not only help your treatment to work better, but it will also help reduce the chances of the spots reappearing.
Duolite laser toning is safe for all skin types and require no anesthetic.
The best part is that there is no downtime or side-effects and you can immediately return to your daily activities.
It is important to wait the proper amount of time for results. Melasma treatment is a gradual process that requires six to eight sessions to achieve a satisfactory outcome.
