Do you struggle with unwanted skin pigmentation caused by a condition known as melasma? At Synergy Wellness, we want to help you achieve a smoother, more even complexion to boost your confidence and help you look and feel great. Our melasma treatments use pico laser technology to address this highly common condition, helping reduce the appearance of dark patches on your face or body.
Melasma is a condition of hyperpigmentation most commonly experienced by women. Sometimes called ” the mask of pregnancy,” it often appears in pregnant women due to hormonal changes, although there are other potential causes. Melasma causes brown or gray-brown patches to appear on the cheeks, chin, forehead or nose. While there is no cure, treatments such as topical bleaching creams or chemical peels can reduce pigmentation.
Laser treatments can address many skin pigmentation issues — and melasma is no different. At our medical aesthetic clinic in Bakersfield, California, we proudly offer pico laser technology to treat melasma.
Picosecond laser therapy is different than most standard laser treatments. The device rapidly delivers energy in picoseconds rather than nanoseconds — that’s increments of one-trillionth of a second. This rapid-fire system allows the energy to be converted into pressure rather than heat.
As the pico laser quickly penetrates the skin, it targets deep below the surface to treat melasma at its source. The pressure created by the pico laser scatters the pigment, which then gets flushed out by the body. For many, the outcome is a clearer, blemish-free complexion.
During your consultation at Synergy Wellness, our experts will help you determine if pico laser treatments would be an effective option for your melasma or other pigmentation issues. Some of the benefits of melasma treatment with a pico laser device include:
