FRECKLES  AND SOLAR LENTIGINIES

Freckles are small flat brown marks arising on the face that are caused by the sun. Lentiginies are due to localized proliferation arising in middle age and also result from sun damage (age spots).

Pigmentation

Not all pigmentation presents the same and therefore should not all be treated in the same manner. It is not easy for the untrained eye to differentiate between freckles, solar lentiginies (sun spots), moles (nevi), melasma and seborrheic keratosis (benign skin lesions). Most people don’t even know what all those terms mean, let alone how to treat them. It is for this reason that off the shelf products are ill equipped to effectively treat all pigmentation yet they promise to brighten the skin. IPL’s work wonderfully in treating more superficial pigmentation such as freckling and solar lentiginies, however can not treat seborrheic keratosis or melasma. Furthermore, the heat generated within the skin during an IPL can interact with deeper dermal pigmentation such as melasma, and with subsequent treatments, leaves the customer at risk to exacerbate the existing condition.


Freckles and Solar Lentiginies

Using the Fotona Frac 3 skin rejuvenation method, the laser energy effectively breaks down epidermal pigment at the base by photo selective thermolysis. A cellular rejuvenation response is stimulated, accelerating cellular production and pushing old pigment cells to the surface. Your treatment provider will then switch the laser to Fotona’s ErYag micro laser peel. This peel is designed to gently resurface the top superficial layers of the epidermis which harbor dead skin cells and pigment. A series of 3 treatments is recommended for optimal results.
