PIGMENTATION, PORES, TEXTURE, REDNESS
You may not necessarily have deep wrinkles, frown lines or crow’s feet, but if you still feel like you’re getting old, it is most probably due to uneven skin tone, pigmentation, pores, redness and texture problems. By saying pigmentation, we do not mean that lovely smattering of freckles, but rather big and noticeable, uneven discoloured patches on your skin. Pigmentation, pores, redness signs include discoloured patches, huge pores, red spots. What can be done? Pigmentation, pores, redness treatment involves a wide range of methods and means, which are various laser procedures (Revlite, BBL, Cutera), creams, mesotherapy, etc. More detailed information about how to get rid of all these nasty skin problems is presented below.
Special cells in your skin produce melanin that gives your skin color. When someone suffers from skin pigmentation disorders, the color of your skin is affected. Certain pigmentation disorders affect patches of your skin while others affect your entire body.
WHAT ARE PORES?
The pores of your skin are openings of hair follicles. Each follicle contains sebaceous gland, which produces your skin’s essential oils. The sizes of your pores are genetically pre-determined. Pores are more visible on parts of your face such as the forehead and nose where the glands are bigger.

PIGMENTATION, PORES, TEXTURE, REDNESS TREATMENT OPTIONS
This laser is exceptionally great at treating Melasma. The laser works to stimulate new collagen growth in the skin. Melasma can affect anyone. Pregnant women, women on hormonal or birth control pills and young women with brownish skin tones are at the greatest risk. Sun exposure is also linked to this condition and is normally seen in tropical climates.The Pixel Laser provides:
- Amazing results
- Less risky
- Short recovery time
- No anesthesia needed
Recovery after Pixel treatment is much quicker than with other laser skin resurfacing procedures, dermabrasions and deep chemical peels. The treatment time for this procedure is about twenty to thirty minutes. After the treatment, patients may experience redness similar to sunburn for up to forty-eight hours. You may resume with work and daily activities within twenty-four to forty-eight hours after the procedure.
This non-invasive treatment uses light beams as high-energy pulse to destroy melanin deposits. The Revlite laser can be used to treat scars or discoloration like age spots, acne, liver marks, sun freckles or even tattoos. Collagen production is also stimulated resulting in firmer and younger looking skin.
This technology has the ability to correct your skin painlessly and naturally. Sun exposure and pollution enlarges the pores in our skin leading to various skin problems such as acne, pigmentation and speeds up the aging process. Revlite improves the overall health of our skin by minimizing pores, dissolving deposited pigment and stimulates collagen production resulting in firmer and younger looking skin.
BroadBand Light Treatment (BBL)
This is a safe non-invasive treatment with minimal discomfort. The melanin that is responsible for pigmented lesions is targeted and eliminated. The upper layer of your skin is gently heated up to generate collagen resulting in a smoother and rejuvenated complexion. The heat absorbed by the treated area coagulates tissue to variable depth.
This helps the skin to restore to its natural state. During the treatment, your eyes will be protected with safety shields. Cold gel is applied to the area of treatment and the BBL hand-piece is gently placed on your skin to deliver light pulses. You may briefly feel a rubber band snap or warm sensation as the targeted areas absorb the light. The treatment will take twenty to thirty minutes depending on the area of treatment.
Tixel skin rejuvenation
This system is powered by the patented Thermo-Mechanical Ablation (TMA) technology, which covers the spectrum of ablative and non-ablative lasers. Tixel helps to improve fine lines, wrinkles, skin discoloration, age spots and acne scars. It also works to treat sun damaged skin and uneven skin tone and texture.
Almost identical to fractional CO2 and Erbium laser, Tixel targets the tissues but with low pain and at a fraction of the size and cost of laser. Analgesic creams are not required. This treatment uses natural heat and is free of radiation.
EXCEL V laser treatment
A new treatment approach to vascular and benign pigmented conditions such as:
- Spider veins
- Leg veins
- Port wine stains
- Cherry angiomas
- Sin spots
The Excel V laser safely and effectively treats a spectrum of vascular and benign pigmented conditions in women and men of all skin tone. This technology administers a special high-powered green laser that is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The heat from the laser breaks down and seals shut the vein walls. The vessels will no longer be visible over time. The treatment lasts for fifteen to thirty minutes and no injections or topical anesthesia are required for the procedure. Your dermatologist will hold the hand-piece over the treated area until the abnormal vessels diminish. A cooling mechanism is used to minimize discomfort and to protect your skin.
Infusion – Needle-free electro-mesotherapy for face and body:
This unique, painless, needle-free procedure delivers vitamins, minerals and complex amino acids into the skin. Specially formulated ionic solutions are safely and effectively delivered to the skin without damaging it.
A special hand-piece is held over the affected area in a circular massaging motion. Ion wave pulses send specific formulas into the inner layers of the skin. The cells begin the structural rearrangement of the lipid bilayer to form micro pores in the membrane. Micro channels allow or restrict the passage of natural nutritional compounds and extracts. These channels are short lived and will reseal shortly. One session lasts for about five to thirty minutes depending on the symptoms and area of treatment. Six to eight sessions are normally recommended for optimal results. If you are pregnant or have any previous medical history, you need to inform your dermatologist incase of side effects.
Cutera Laser Genesis:
This laser can produce vibrant and healthy skin in both men and women. This non-invasive technology is can safely and effectively treat these conditions:
- Premature aging
- Sun damage
- Excessive redness
- Large pores
- Uneven texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
This technology has been scientifically proven to produce new collagen in the skin. It can safely and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture and even diffuse scars and redness through non-invasive laser technology. Expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment. The procedure is performed in a comfortable environment without the use of topical anesthetics or gel. Patients have said that the treatments are relaxing and therapeutic. Collagen re-growth is stimulated when the upper dermis is heated. To reduce redness, dilated capillaries are further heated. You may experience a gentle warming during the procedure as the hand-piece is applied about half an inch above your skin. Daily activities can be resumed immediately after treatment. You’re advised to wear sunscreen if you are participating in outdoor sports. Over the course of four to five treatments, this laser can help to restore your skin’s youthful glow and appearance and even out your skin texture caused by aging, sun damage or scars.
This aesthetic laser produces results that are consistent time over time with fewer complications. This laser can help to treat:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Pigmented lesions
The wavelength capabilities can be extended which will allow tattoo removals! Energy is delivered through the homogenous beams evenly over the skin’s surface. This helps to minimize epidermal injuries.
This laser uses different wavelength of light energy to treat unsightly skin conditions. The 12PL system can be used for:
- Removal of unwanted hair
- Sun damaged-skin
- Pigmented skin disorders
Short pulses of light energy targets the treatment area and heat up the upper epidermis. The light is carefully controlled so that only the affected area is treated while the surrounding skin and the moisture in the skin are not affected.
