Which treatments are effective for both pigmentation and large pores?
I'm a 32 years old female. I have pigmentation issues and large pores. Which treatments are effective at addressing both issues?
For treatments that addresses BOTH pigmentation and large pores in the same session, it would really depend on whether:
a) You will be able to accomodate downtime/ redness after the procedure
b) The type of pigmentation that you have (we will have to generalise for now as the type of pigmentation can only be determined during an examination and consultation)
Treatments will include:
1) The Spectra XT Carbon Laser Peel
This treatment targets pigmentation as well as pores. Other benefits include brightening of the skin and collagen stimulation.
There is no downtime with this procedure, is often a lunch time procedure as it is quick but yet is still able to penetrate into the deeper skin layers.
2) The BB Laser
This treatment targets pigmentation, large pores and brightens the skin. Overall texture of the skin will also be improved with smoothening of the skin.
This treatment is more effective at treating pores but there is downtime associated post-procedure.
Redness of around 3 - 5 days is to be expected.
Hope this helps.
All the best!
