The mainstay of pigmentation treatment in today’s medical environment is the Candela flash lamp pulse dye laser, which is specifically designed to treat vessels in the epidermis and dermis of children and adults with Pigmentation. The fancy nomenclature for treatment is “selective photo thermal ysis,” which simply means that the laser will specifically treat the dilated vessels and not injure the surrounding epidermis, dermis, and soft tissue structures other than the vessels. Chomogenex pulse dye laser treatment for pigmentation typically requires several sessions, usually anywhere from one and ten. The treatment of pigmentation first requires performing a laser response test, which determines the efficacy and response of an individual’s tissue to the laser. Several energy levels are tested and evaluated approximately six weeks later.It is of significant advantage to treat early on for a number of reasons; specifically, the port wine stain is not hypertrophied, not as well matured, and not as prominent.
Treatments for Pigmentation are very fast and only mildly uncomfortable. The sensation feels warm to hot. Post treatment you can expect slightly red or pink sensitive skin (the sensation is similar to sunburn) with the pigment appearing much darker, or grey. It is important to not scratch or remove darkened pigment prematurely, rather allow it to come away naturally.
Laser pigmentation removal works by selectively targeting the unwanted pigment in the skin with laser light. The pigment absorbs the light and heats up, resulting in the body shedding or reabsorbing the pigment over several weeks.
Repeated pregnancies, can intensify the pigmentation. Sun exposure, following the use of deodorant soaps, scented toiletries, and various cosmetics can also produce this mottled pigmentation. This is called a phototoxic reaction and is due to ultraviolet radiation being absorbed by the chemical substance (perfume, cologne and other types of fragrance) on the skin. This often extends down to the sun-exposed areas of the neck and may be more pronounced on the right side of the forehead, face and neck due to sun exposure while driving a car (or the left side - if you drive on the right).
Depending on your specific treatment, your physician will prescribe detailed skin care instruction. To avoid the risk of infection and to ensure a positive result, please follow these instruction carefully. After you have healed, you will need to continually protect your new skin. In the early weeks and months following treatment, your skin will be very susceptible to sun damage. If at all possible, avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. If you must be in the sun for a short time, please use sunscreens recommended by your physician.
Remember, one of the reasons you are probably considering laser resurfacing is because of the long-term damaging effects the sun has had on your skin.
Of course, everyone will heal at various rates depending on the depth of treatment, the particular areas treated and your own healing rate. Noticeable results are typically seen in few weeks. Light resurfacing around the eyes and lips in general takes only a few days. Most patients can be treated before the weekend and be almost completely healed by the following Monday. A deep full facial resurfacing may take up to 2-3 weeks before you feel aesthetically comfortable to return to your normal activities. Areas further away from your face, such as hands, may take up to a month for the full treatment benefits to become apparent.
