Is it painful?
The process is gentle with no down time. The sensation during treatment is described as a 'hot pinch' or 'snapping' feeling which only lasts for a fraction of a second. Warmth and/or a tingling sensation is experienced for a short time afterward. The most commonly treated areas are face, neck, chest, arms and hands.
How many sessions are required?
The number of sessions required varies and depends on the condition being treated but typically a progressive series of 4 treatments at 3 week intervals is recommended. Skin will continue to improve for up to 6 months thereafter.
Where did your pigmented lesion come from?
Life cycle and hormonal changes can affect the distribution of color (melanin) in our skin, leading to the appearance of all kinds of pigmented lesions. These include moles, freckles, age spots, or melasma which is a dark, patchy facial discoloration condition. Whether the damage is caused by sun exposure, genetics or other factors, the result is uneven, blemished skin tone. Pigmented skin lesions differ from vascular lesions, which are not caused by sun damage.
How does pigmented lesion removal work?
Alma’s light-based, laser and IPL treatments remove the appearance of spots and skin hyperpigmentation by targeting the melanin in the darkened area and dispersing it. The tiny fragments of the pigment are then cleared by the lymphatic system through a natural process. This results in the clearing of all of the pigmentation layers which in turn reveals even-toned, unblemished skin.
Is it safe?
The treatments are specially designed for patient comfort and are safe and effective for all skin types and colors, including dark skin.
