The key to successful treatment of hyperpigmentation of the face rests on the correct identification of the facial pigmentation. Not all facial pigmentation are laser-responsive.
Superficial laser-responsive facial pigmentation such as freckles and lentigines respond to 1-3 sessions of the pico-laser.
Deeper laser-responsive facial pigmentation such as Hori’s nevus and Ota nevus respond to 5-10 sessions of the pico-laser.
Contrary to popular belief, melasma only lightens temporarily with pico-laser treatment and recurs when the laser treatment is stopped.
An actual consultation with your preferred Aesthetic Doctor is essential to identify the nature of your facial pigmentation and to formulate your treatment plan.
