Pigmentation Q & A

Why do I have spots on my skin?

Sun damage, aging, and hormonal fluctuations can all trigger your skin cells to produce more pigment to protect itself from damage. However, the resulting dark spots are often unflattering and create an uneven skin tone. Dark spots most commonly appear in sun-exposed areas, such as your face, chest, and hands.

If you have fair skin, you’re most likely to develop brown spots and freckles. If your skin is darker, the pigmentation may look shadowy or patchy.

How can I even out my pigmentation?

The experts at Downtown Medspa use the PicoSure® laser by Cynosure® to remove hyperpigmentation safely and quickly. The PicoSure laser does more than improve the surface of your skin. PicoSure increases your overall skin quality by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin, which are the essential proteins that make your skin strong and flexible.

Why is PicoSure better than other lasers?

PicoSure uses a unique process that converts light into pressure. Rather than burning your skin with heat, as other lasers do, PicoSure emits intense bursts of pressure that last only picoseconds (trillionths of a second). The pressure shatters excess pigment in your skin so that your body can process and naturally excrete it.

The pressure also squeezes your skin cells, stimulating them to produce more collagen and elastin without having to undergo a wounding process. Over the next six months, your skin remodels itself with new proteins, becoming thicker, firmer, and more resilient.

Because there’s no heat, your skin isn’t damaged, reddened, or flaky. PicoSure treatments last only about 10 minutes for most areas of your skin. There’s no downtime, so you can apply skin care and makeup directly after your treatment.

How does my skin look after PicoSure?

Directly after treatment, your skin may be slightly pink and swollen, but this dissipates over the next 24 hours. You may notice that your skin looks clearer right after your first treatment. You may need a series of two to five treatments to get optimal results.

In addition, over the next six months, your skin remodels itself with new collagen and elastin. Your skin becomes:

  • More evenly toned
  • Firmer
  • Smoother
  • Free of fine lines and noticeable scars
  • Tighter
  • Younger and healthier looking
