Benign hyperpigmentations are unsightly skin spots that may appear after exposure to the sun, due to ageing, after taking medication or after an inflammatory skin process. They usually occur in exposed areas such as the face and hands, but they can also appear on the torso and limbs.
Thanks to modern Q switched laser technology, these spots can be treated effectively and safely. Our Q-switched laser procedure can remove this type of lesions quickly and painlessly even in just one session.
During the session, the photoacoustic effect emitted by the handpiece used on the skin interacts selectively with the pigmentation to be treated. The surrounding skin is not affected and therefore remains intact. For the comfort of the patient during the treatment, the skin is constantly cooled by a device built into the laser handpiece. An anaesthetic cream could also be applied to reduce any discomfort or pain that may sometimes accompany the treatment.
After the treatment, slight reddening and scabbing may develop but they will disappear after a few days.
After the treatment, patients must apply the cream as instructed by the doctor to ensure adequate recovery.
After treatment, exposure to the sun must be avoided for the time indicated by the doctor (usually 1-2 months).
It is advisable to wait at least a couple of months before any finishing sessions are carried out.
