Targets: Brown and/or Red pigment on the skin
Summary: This treatment uses an intense burst of light in a pulse by pulse pattern to treat brown and red pigmentation in the skin. The day after the treatment, brown spots will initially appear slightly darker, with a coffee ground appearance to the surface. This pigment will remain for 5 to 7 days until the pigment becomes dry and flakes off the skin, revealing a more evenly pigmented and refreshed appearance. Intense Pulsed Light treatment is often done in a series of 3 to 5 treatments performed monthly to achieve optimal results.
Recovery: Skin may be pink for an hour post-treatment. Most recipients of this treatment can go right back to work or elsewhere without issue.
