What is pigmentation removal?

Pigmentation removal at Shira Laser uses cutting-edge laser treatments to safely reduce the appearance of skin spots. The laser targets specific pigmented lesions, which absorb the light without damaging any surrounding tissues. It heats and shatters unevenly toned pigment, drawing it to the skin’s surface, where it fades, dries, and flakes off over time. 

What type of skin pigmentation can I get rid of?

Shira Laser’s pigmentation removal treatments help diminish the appearance of:

  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Sun spots
  • Birthmarks
  • Scarring
  • Rosacea
  • Stretch marks

If you have other pigmentation issues, speak with a specialist at the practice to see what is best for your skin.

In addition to pigmentation removal, Shira Laser provides other aesthetic treatments, including laser hair removal, HydraFacial®, microneedling, teeth whitening, chemical peels, and more. 

Is pigmentation removal right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for pigmentation removal at Shira Laser, a specialist examines your skin, discusses your lifestyle and medical history, asks about medications you might take, and reviews your desired results. They tailor a treatment plan that’s right for you.

How can I prepare for pigmentation removal?

Follow your provider’s instructions before completing pigmentation removal. It’s vital to avoid sun exposure, tanning sprays or lotions, and tanning bed use for several weeks before your scheduled appointment. For this reason, it’s often beneficial to undergo pigmentation removal during the colder months. 

What happens during pigmentation removal?

During treatment, your Shira Laser provider cleans the treatment area, numbs it to optimize comfort, and gives you goggles to protect your eyes from the laser. Common treatment areas include your neck, face, hands, and décolletage. 

They use a small device to emit laser energy into pigmented tissues while you rest comfortably. The length of each treatment varies based on the number and size of the treatment areas. For best results, your provider often recommends a series of laser treatments. 

What can I expect after pigmentation removal?

Afterward, it's important to keep your skin protected from the sun and avoid tanning beds. Over time, treated pigmented tissues begin to fade. Many patients experience highly effective results of 70% or greater over the course of their treatments. You will schedule repeat sessions as directed by your provider to experience flawless, long-lasting results.
