What are the most common causes of skin hyperpigmentation?
The causes of pigmentation can be divided into two types: Congenital and acquired.The most common type of congenital pigmentation is freckles, commonly inherited from parents. Individuals born with more active melanin have a stronger reaction to UV rays. Therefore, freckles appear more noticeable in the summer and fade throughout the winter.Freckles are located at the shallower skin layers, making them the first to go after just one laser treatment.Acquired pigmentation includes sunspots, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, age spots and hormonal spots. Those factors lead to excess melanin production, deepening the shades of pigmentation in the dermis.Only medical laser treatments are effective in treating hyperpigmentation of the acquired sort.
How does C6 Good Skin Laser Facial remove pigmentation?
C6 uses a high-energy focused-pulse laser; the energy can penetrate the superficial and deep layers of the skin. In addition, the energy wavelength is adjustable to break down melanin in all skin layers.Due to the photothermal effect, melanin will disintegrate into tiny particles to be excreted through the metabolic process, making C6 a non-invasive, painless pigmentation removal procedure.
Aside from removing pigmentation, what other benefits does the laser treatment bring to the skin?
C6 can break down old and hardened collagen, stimulate collagen regeneration for shrinking pores and restoring clear, hydrated, smooth and supple skin.
How long will it take to see pigmentation removal results?
Changes in superficial pigmentation such as freckles and sunspots are visible after one session. For darker pigmentation in the dermis, expect complete removal after 6 to 12 sessions.
