Your Skin Doesn’t Have to Give Away Your Age: Hyper pigmentation and Age Spot Removalby Harmony Blog___ 02.9.2018
Wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin are iconic, stereotypical symptoms of aging, but they’re not the only ones that you need to worry about. Even with diligent moisturizing and collagen treatments to keep wrinkles at bay, age spots are difficult to fight. The blotchy, darkened patches are a clear sign of aging skin, but you don’t have to live with them. The Harmony XL Pro System by Alma Lasers will dramatically reduce or even eliminate hyper pigmentation and age spots in just 30 minutes.
The ‘lunchtime procedure’ is fast, effective, and virtually painless with no visible side effects, except for vanishing age spots! Dye-VL and Clearlift handpieces turn the revolutionary Harmony XL Pro into a photo-rejuvenation miracle worker. Clinical studies and patient data have tracked a superb success rate and the Harmony XL Pro is one of the most established laser treatments for skin renewal and anti-aging.
How does hyper pigmentation occur?
Sun spots, freckles, age spots, and hyper pigmentation occur when melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color, collects in one area. The distribution of melanin loses effectiveness as we age, leading to the risk for more age and sun spots. Melasma is a unique skin problem that results in dark, wide patches of facial discoloration. All of these skin conditions have a wide variety of causes, ranging from sun exposure, hormones, genetics, and age to inflammation or injuries. Luckily, one system can reverse them all.
The Harmony XL Pro Dye-VL hand-piece and Clearlift Laser specifically target melanin collection spots under the surface with a narrow band spectrum of light energy. This incredibly narrow wave band is uniform and consistent with specialized light pulses for unparalleled accuracy. Plus, the narrow band eliminates the wavelengths that have adverse effects on skin, so it’s completely safe for all skin types and it works on sensitive skin areas, including the body, face, and neck. With a hand-piece instrument, the laser technician has total control over the treatment outcome with additional specialized treatment options to optimize results.
How does the Harmony laser treatment work?
During the treatment, the top layer of the skin is left completely intact and no tissue is destroyed in the process. As the melanin absorbs the energy, the pigmentation is cleared so that you’re left with an even, uniform skin tone.
Everyone can benefit from this effective treatment, including patients of darker skin color. Unlike other photo-rejuvenation laser treatments, you don’t have to wait until pale winter months to schedule an appointment. Stop in for a 30-minute age spot removal procedure any time of year with no pain, downtime, or numbing required.
Dark spots and hyper pigmentation will get darker initially for up to 7 days and then they will lighten up or vanish altogether. The laser boosts the skin’s natural healing process while improving collagen production with fast, long-lasting results. It only takes 3-4 sessions, approximately a month apart, to reclaim your youth with smooth, spotless skin.
