We all dream of having flawless skin. To achieve that we try a lot of things. Though having a good skincare regime is important, it is not enough to help achieve the results you’ve hoped for. The products only penetrate only the upper layers of the skin. Sometimes the hyperpigmentation is so deep that you need some extra help. This is when laser skin whitening comes into the picture. It is a cosmetic procedure that can help to reduce redness and spider veins, minimize pores and target age spots and sun damage. We are here to tell you about this cosmetic treatment, to help you make an informed decision about the same.

When should one consider Angel Whitening laser treatment?

Age spots, also known as sunspots or liver spots are the discoloured areas on the neck, face and back of the head. It is caused by the uneven distribution of melanin. They are larger than freckles and begin to appear after the age of 40. The task of melanin pigment is to absorb the sunlight. It works to protect us from harmful UV rays. Hormones, sunlight, genetics and medication impact the even distribution of melanin. Some people experience hyperpigmentation around the mouth and the eyes. This darkened skin also begins to develop along the acne scars and in h round areas like the elbows and knees. The whitening laser treatment is a non-invasive and chemical-free way to target hyperpigmentation and age spots.

The Q-switched technology enables one to achieve faster and more effective results. This laser treatment targets various pigmented and vascular lesions, acne scars, melasma, rosacea, fine lines and tattoos. The laser treatment is efficient and comfortable as compared to the older technology. Pico technology is used which breaks down the pigment into finer particles, allowing it to be cleared by the system fast enough. Though you might require a few treatment sessions to achieve the desired results, you will begin to see changes after the first session itself.
