Our perception of beauty is often based on the foundation of a youthful and clear skin but, unfortunately, not all of us enjoy this particular luxury. Uneven skin pigmentation, also referred to as skin hyperpigmentation, is a harmless skin condition that is very common in the United Kingdom and around the world. While this condition is often associated with old age, it is often seen in the case of young adults and even children. Luckily, Renew Skin & Health Clinic now provides very effective laser pigmented lesions treatment and laser freckles removal in Cheltenham.
Uneven skin pigmentation is a benign skin disorder that appears due to the overproduction of melanin in certain areas of the body. In these cases, the melanin, which is the pigment that determines the colour of our skin, is not produced evenly throughout the surface of the skin, creating brown spots or brown patches. It has been found that hyperpigmentation is caused by excessive exposure to the sun, normal ageing, inflammation and certain types of skin injuries, being especially prevalent when it is associated with a genetic inclination towards the formation of brown spots. Since it does not produce any pain and does not affect the normal functioning of the body in any way, uneven skin pigmentation is not seen as a serious medical issue by most of the medical community. Despite this, many opt for laser brown spots removal due to the social and personal problems the unaesthetic skin lesions can produce. The patient has a number of viable skin treatment options, such as chemical peeling or skin lightening, thought the Renew Skin & Health team of dermatological specialists recommends uneven skin pigmentation treatment in Cheltenham as the best means of hyperpigmentation treatment. Our team now uses the Deka Fractional CO2 Laser in order to ensure the most effective brown spots removal and produce great aesthetic results. The laser treatment is conducted by administrating a concentrated, pulsating beam of light on the portions of the skin which present brown spots or liver spots. The laser beam will react with the outer layer of the epidermis, damaging it and causing the dead skin cells to shed, thus encouraging the production of collagen and new skin cells. The high-intensity, monochromatic Deka Fractional CO2 Laser is ideal for brown spots removal, age spots removal and treating uneven skin pigmentation. If the removal process is performed correctly by an experienced dermatologist using the proper equipment, after the laser skin treatment is finalized, the patient should see a new, evenly pigmented layer of skin emerge. The Deka Fractional CO2 Laser increases the precision and flexibility with which our technicians perform the operation, drastically limiting the chances of scarring or other medical complications.
Increasing the daily intake of Vitamin C can help the patient better maintain the appearance of his skin once it has been treated. Also, undergoing a kojic acid skin treatment can help prepare the skin for the laser treatment and enhance the quality of the end result, if initiated approximately 3 to 4 weeks before the actual operation. If the patient has had any issues relating to herpes outbreaks, then our team will recommend the he undergoes an antiviral treatment 6 days before the laser operation. In any case, we will make sure that each patient enjoys a treatment that is customized to his particular medical requirements.
