What is pigmentation lesion reduction?
Pigmentation lesion reduction is a medical spa service that gets rid of excess pigments and marks on your skin. The team at DK Med Spa uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to minimize the spots and lesions you decide to target on your face or body.
IPL is noninvasive and nonablative; it uses scattered light to break down clusters of pigment in your skin. Each pulse of light is bright and white, like a camera’s flash. The team might offer you local or topical anesthesia ahead of time to numb your skin so you’re not uncomfortable during the treatment.
Before you proceed with IPL to remove pigmented lesions, the team encourages you to come in for a treatment consultation to discuss your goals and expectations.
Which pigmented lesions can I reduce?
Intense pulsed light is highly effective at evening out your skin tone by removing excess pigment and spots. There are several varieties of pigmented lesion you can remove using IPL, including:
- Spider veins
- Cherry angioma
- Age spots
Any of these skin features are natural and harmless, but you might not like how they look on an otherwise clear complexion. The team at DK Med Spa can tell you how many treatments you can expect to have for pigmentation lesion reduction.
How should I prepare for pigmentation lesion reduction?
First, you must visit DK Med Spa for a detailed consultation for pigmentation lesion reduction. The team asks about your goals, goes over your medical history, examines your skin, and advises you on how to prepare for your upcoming procedure.
They may ask you to:
- Avoid direct sun exposure
- Keep your skin moisturized
- Avoid retinoids
- Finish taking antibiotics you’re on
- Avoid medications that increase bleeding
Taking measures like these and following any other instructions from the team sets you up for an effective treatment without complications. IPL therapy doesn’t require any downtime, so you don’t need to take the day off work unless you want to.
