Pigmentation Removal

Pigmentation removal in St. Albert, Alberta

For pigmentation removal in St. Albert, A2 Medispa uses Elite+ laser treatments. Cynosure’s Elite+ laser system can remove hyperpigmentation without the need for surgery or cosmetic bleaching.* This is thanks to the fact that the areas of skin with extra pigment selectively absorb the laser light, removing darker areas without affecting the surrounding skin.* The light from the laser is taken up by the pigment in your skin cells, causing the melanin to rapidly heat up and break down.* Once released, your body disposes of the waste pigment through its normal processes, offering a natural treatment option for hyperpigmentation.* As a result you will be left with a more even skin pigmentation and a healthy looking complexion.*

The causes of hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation (also known as brown or age spots) occurs when your body produces extra melanin, which may happen in response to sun damage or hormonal shifts. Additionally, if pigmentation runs in your family, you are more susceptible to it. Although age spots are harmless, if you have them on your face, hands, arms or décolleté, you may feel self-conscious. This can often limit what you wear and the activities that you do. Fortunately, the Elite+ laser system effectively treats pigmentation. Whether caused by sun exposure, hormonal changes or as a result of inflammation within your body, the Elite+ laser can remove these dark patches of skin in just a few treatment sessions.*

What to expect during treatments

During your initial consultation, we can determine which areas need treatment and the number of sessions you will need. During the procedure, you will be seated comfortably as we make multiple passes over the targeted areas with the laser. A topical cream will be applied before the procedure, so that you won’t feel any discomfort from the laser’s heat. By targeting pigment below the surface of the skin, there is no damage to the outer layer. Most patients describe the procedure as feeling similar to a mild sunburn.

What to expect from the results

Most patients see visible results after 1 session.* During your consultation, we will be able to determine how many treatment sessions you’ll need, based on the amount of pigmentation on your skin. There is no downtime after the procedure, and you will be able to return to your normal routine immediately. This laser system is the preferred treatment to achieve unblemished skin, and one that you can easily take advantage of.
