Hyperpigmentation is the overproduction of pigment (melanin) which can make the skin look tired and dull. Dark-skinned patients are more prone to this condition. Traditionally, lasers have not been safe for darker skin types. Using various contemporary protocols, the low energy Q-Switched laser, and non-ablative fractional lasers can be used in a series of treatments with good results. The lasers are combined with topical medical grade cosmeceuticals or prescription lightening agents to enhance and maintain the results on all skin types.
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory disease that presents as flushing, broken red blood vessels (telangiectasia), and occasionally bumps. The proper wavelength laser is required to remove the telangiectasia and can help control flare-ups. We have both superficial and deep wavelengths available to treat each abnormality with the safest and most effective device. This device can also be used to improve red scars or stretch marks. Maintenance treatments are recommended for best results.
