This pigment laser is able to break down your pigment without damaging the skin surface. It gives good results in the treatment of melasma, lentigines, Hori’s macule, freckles, stubborn acne marks, age spots as well as tattoos. With the latest Korean fractional technology, the downtime from this laser treatment is minimal. Recovery is also a lot faster and the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is greatly reduced.
This is an advanced and improved version of Intense Pulse Light (IPL). It penetrates tissue to create controlled destruction to the melanin pigment of freckles, sunspots, age spots while leaving the surrounding healthy skin unaffected. Clinical studies have shown that this technology can reduce superficial pigmentation by 84.6% after just three sessions and it drastically maximises the safety margin during treatment for patients with darker skin tone. Most patients with superficial skin pigmentations are highly satisfied with the cosmetic outcome of OPT treatment.
What is melanin? It is the natural pigment in the body that gives color to your hair, skin and eyes. But when the melanin-producing skin cells become unhealthy or damaged, it will increase its production of melanin pigment, which causes the skin to have brown spots and hyperpigmentation. There are different kinds of hyperpigmentation, which includes freckles, lentigines (sun spots), melasma, Hori’s macule, seborrheic keratosis (age spots) and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). It will be good to identify which kind you have in order to find the right treatment for you and your skin.
