- How it works
Laser treatment is a modern innovation that is specifically designed to break down the skin’s coloured pigment in a sophisticated manner. Birthmarks are physical marks that can occur from birth or that develop over time. They occur due to an unusual clustering of blood vessels or due to an excessive amount of melanin. The most common form of pigmentation disorders include Melasma (including pregnancy-induced melasma), post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), and excessive sun exposure. Hyperpigmentation is the excess production of melanin – the coloured part of the skin – and it appears as a localised dark patch on the skin. The patches are typically non-raised as the hyperpigmentation occurs beneath the top layer of skin.
- The Process
The technique involves using a customised laser wavelength to work on the specific colouration of the birthmark/pigment. The laser pulse breaks down the coloured pigment into dust-like particles which the body will re-absorb, thus reducing or eradicating the pigmentation. Over a customised course of treatment, the laser breaks down the colouration so that the mark fades without causing scarring.
