ARE YOU ANNOYED OF YOUR PIGMENT? NEED HELP? WE ARE HERE
CMA Primary Care& MedSpa facilitate Pigment Correction which is an effective treatment when there is an overproduction of melanin in your skin. This leads to hyperpigmentation which can occur due to acne scars or sun damage. A common form of hyperpigmentation presents itself as brown spots on the skin and is best known as melasma. This type of pigmentation occurs due to an increase in hormones during pregnancy or from too much exposure to the sun. While none of these issues are medically worrisome, they can cause you to think less of your appearance.
Sometimes, hyperpigmentation is caused by the amount of elastin and collagen in your skin. These two components are responsible for the texture, elasticity, and tone of your skin. Therefore, they can be affected by cosmetic treatments, diet, hormones, your age, and more. At CMA Primary Care & MedSpa we have researched and worked on suggesting a proper set of preventive measures for patients undergoing this treatment.

While certain treatments are more intense than others, Photo Rejuvenation is a breeze. Pulses are spread out according to the areas that need to be attended to, so rather than zapping large segments at a time, the laser is only triggered at unwanted legions making for an easily manageable session. The zaps are likened to a warm rubber band snap, and the sensation is quickly dulled by a cooling compress at CMA Primary Care & MedSpa.
Minor swelling or redness can occur in the area surrounding the pigmentation for a matter of minutes or hours post treatment. You can expect the spots that were treated to crust up and shed over a few days. For this reason, exercise should be suspended to allow for proper healing on areas like the arms and legs that would chafe against clothing. At CMA Primary Care & MedSpa the results are typically seen after a week and then more gradually throughout some sessions.
The peel is quick, easy and painless! The first step of the treatment involves applying a retinol solution to the skin. Following the retinol, a gel peel solution is applied. The gel peel will remain on your skin between 3-5 hours, during which time you will avoid applying any makeup or skin care products including sunscreen. After the appropriate number of hours, you simply wash the peel off with a provided cleanser and begin the use of the products in the kit. You will receive specific instructions about product usage before you leave the treatment session at CMA Primary Care & MedSpa.
Laser or Peels can be done as frequently as six weeks apart or until full improvement is seen in the discoloration. Typically, patients at CMA Primary Care & MedSpa will require a series of 2-4 for the most significant improvement in discoloration.
Most patients do not experience any side effects, with any skin reaction usually resolving within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and to use sunscreen daily on the treated areas.
