Pigmentation Treatments

Pigmented lesions are remarkably common and the overwhelming majority are benign. City Clinic has different kinds of treatments which may help you getting rid of pigmented lesions, melasmas, chloasmas and age spots.

Laser treatment

It is widely recognized in the medical community that Q-Switched lasers are the ideal tools for effectively removing benign pigmented lesions. Multi-wavelength, Q-Switched laser systems with frequency-doubled KTP are uniquely able to produce very short pulses of intense light that are selectively absorbed by treatment-specific pigments in a lesion.

Four Wavelengths for the Widest Range of Lesions

Fotona’s QX MAX laser system is the perfect tool for treating a wide range of pigmented lesions, enabling treatments for everything from nevi (moles) and vascular lesions to ephelides, sunspots and melasma. Superficial lesions can be treated most effectively with the 532 nm wavelength, while the 1064 nm wavelength can be used to target deeper lesions.

Safe, Effective and Minimally Invasive Treatments

For a difficult-to-treat condition such as melasma, the QX MAX is especially effective due to the selectivity of Q-switched light, enabling it to break apart pigments only and not cells. This means that pigment destruction can take place without ablating the skin – a unique feature that also allows other treatment possibilities.

In addition to Q-Switched lasers, Er:YAG lasers can also be used for the ablation of keratoses, moles, and other pigmented lesions, enabling the removal of the epidermis and superficial dermis in a controlled and relatively bloodless manner. Clinical studies have shown that Er:YAG lasers are very effective for the treatment of keratoses, with a clinical and histological improvement of up to 93% after just one treatment.

Spot Eraser Treatment

Spot Eraser is a topical bleaching and anti-agineg treatment, which includes in its composition active bleaching agents acting at all levels of the composition and metabolism of melanin. The treatment is entirely safe, easy and rapid in application, suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive.
