Acroma Laser Toning for blotchy, uneven skin tones
Treat Melasma, Don’t Tolerate It
What is Melasma?
Melasma is the medical term for disfiguring patches of pigmentation on the face. They can be a result of sun exposure, genetic disposition or hormonal changes during the ageing process.
This can also occur during pregnancy or in women taking birth control pills. It is brought about by excess melanin production and formation of concentrated deposits that result in darker patches of skin and an overall ‘blotchy’ appearance.
A major advantage of Acroma Laser Toning is that there is no downtime, and minimal risk of side effects. You can achieve a smoother, more youthful skin with minimal interruption to your normal routine.
How does it work?
Your clinician will clean your skin prior to treatment. The laser will produce short nanosecond pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of the skin to be absorbed by the dark pigment.
Over the course of several treatments, you will see the darker pigmentation gradually fade, as your skin progressively regains a smoother, more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Over time, this pigment breaks up into smaller particles and is removed by your body’s own immune system.
What Is Acroma Laser Toning?
Acroma Laser Toning has been designed specifically to help reduce these patches of darker pigmentation. It is a two-stage process, which helps to break up the areas of darker colour and uneven skin tones, but at the same time works to improve the skin’s texture and can also reduce pore size and fine wrinkles.
How Does The Treatment Feel?
Laser toning treatments involve only mild discomfort. You may experience a slight prickling sensation as the skin tissue is heated. The operator will move the handpiece carefully over the treatment area. You can expect this to be repeated in a number of passes.
When Will I See The Results?
Melasma treatment is a gradual process that requires a set of sessions to work effectively. With the progress of time and with each treatment, you will notice a building improvement in skin tone.
Are The Results Permanent?
The long-term success of laser toning and melasma treatments are determined by several factors. To achieve the best long-term results from your treatment, it is important to avoid sun damage. Apply a good sunscreen at all times and wear protective clothing during times of maximum sun strength.
