Pigmentation is a discolouration of the skin and although genetic, it can also be the result of ageing, hormonal changes, illness or sun exposure.
There are 2 main types: hypopigmentation – a loss of skin colour which appears as light patches, and hyperpigmentation – a darkening of the skin in specific areas.
Beverly Hills Aesthetic & Medical Centre in Dubai offers the industry’s foremost solution in treating pigmentation – the LimeLight Facial.
How Does the LimeLight Facial Work?
A new, non-invasive approach to treating benign pigmented and vascular lesions on any part of your face, neck and décolleté.
Whether you are suffering from skin redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins), dark brown spots, or previously difficult to resolve light brown spots, it improves skin tone and surface imperfections associated with ageing and photodamage.
Your specialist will customise your pigmentation laser treatment to suit your exact skin type and affected area.
What Happens Before and After Treatment?
After a session, brown spots will darken, your skin may appear slightly red, and the treated area might be mildly swollen. This can lasts a few hours and possibly a day or longer. Make up can be applied to cover the redness.
Within 2 to 3 weeks, the darkened spots will flake off and fade, diffuse redness or telangiectasia will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve.
Will Spots and Redness Reappear in the Future?
New brown spots, telangiectasia and diffuse redness may appear if your skin is over-exposed to sunlight, however they can be treated. Remember to always apply broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors to minimise sun damage. Rosacea is a chronic condition and cannot be cured, however its appearance can be significantly improved.
