Description of the procedure
People affected by skin changes, known as pigmented lesions, especially age-related smudges, more frequently consider these changes to be esthetic imperfections. Age-related spots are present in 50% of women and 20% of men older than the age of 50. Since those signs of aging are more and more frequently considered unpleasant, readiness to remove them becomes more pronounced. There are several different pigmented changes that primarily differ by their morphological and histological characteristics. For that reason, assessment and possible therapy of pigmented skin phenomena always have to be entrusted with a specialized doctor.
Likewise, the occurrence of rosacea, facial redness, can greatly affect the quality of life of people affected by it. Although they are chronic, which means that there is no definitive cure, there are certain steps that can be taken in order to prevent or alleviate them.
Treatments of redness and pigmented changes removal guarantee the clients minimum risk and gentle and painless treatment, with outstanding results. In Polyclinic Lege Artis, we use a yellow laser QuadroStarPRO, manufactured by the company Asclepion Laser Technologies that is nowadays a state-of-the-art technology and the best choice when dealing with the aforementioned skin problems. Owing to its high energy at the moment of highest concentration of hemoglobin, it is possible to treat capillaries, redness and pigmentation quickly, gently and efficiently.
Course of the procedure
During the treatment of removal of capillaries, i.e. skin redness, light turns into heat, and a blood vessel is closed and disappears. Liquid surrounding the vessel (tissue that contains a high percentage of water) does not absorb the light, preventing damage to the surrounding skin. Vessels are immediately ‘erased’ without the occurrence of repulsive peliosis (purple smudges).
Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 10-15 days after the treatment, do not apply soap directly to the treated area if your skin is not calmed, and do not rub the face during the first few days after the treatment.
