Our photofacial treatment targets sun damage, age spots, sun spots, and freckles by pulsing light-based energy to the unwanted pigmentation. This targeted increase in temperature causes the unwanted pigment to rise which helps to break up the pigment. As we age our skin starts to shows the cumulative effect of sun damage in the form of hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone.
Hyperpigmentation is caused by an increase in melanin. Melanin is the natural pigment that gives our skin, hair, and eyes their color. A number of factors can trigger an increase in melanin production, but the main ones are sun exposure, hormonal influence, and age.
