Are there different types of spots? What are they?
The most common pigment spots are solar lentigos related to photoaging. These spots are mainly found on areas exposed to the sun such as the face, neckline, hands and forearms. They must be distinguished from other pigmentary spots such as moles, but also from pre-cancerous or cancerous spots.
What technologies can treat spots?
Depending on the severity of the condition, various treatment options are indicated. In milder cases, the use of a protocol of lightening creams with vitamin A and pigment regulating agents can provide interesting results.
In the case of more severe or extensive pigmentation spots, the use of laser technology such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or the Q-switch laser (Enlighten) can provide more extensive effects.
During a consultation with a member of the Medime team, the best option(s) are presented to the patient.
Does my skin color affect the treatment and results?
Depending on the patient’s skin tone or type, different technologies will be used. For example, laser technologies for dark or black skin are different from those for light skin.
How many sessions are required?
The average number of sessions is 2 to 4 depending on the severity of the condition.
What results can I expect?
In the days following the treatment, the spots darken and lighten progressively over an average period of about 2-3 weeks. The complexion also becomes clearer and more even. General benefits on skin texture and elasticity are also expected.
