The Best Treatment Plan for Pigmentation After Laser

Wondering how to keep pigmentation after laser at bay?

Pigmentation is one of the common skin issues faced after laser treatments. If you have light skin, you are more susceptible to pigmentation after laser. Additionally, if you are already dealing with hyperpigmentation, laser therapy can exacerbate the issue. Pigmentation after laser treatment is caused by injury to the skin after the treatment and can take a long time to resolve. Here are some of the best treatment plans that you can try to keep pigmentation at bay after laser.

  • Sunscreen

If you have gone through a laser treatment recently, it is imperative to wear sunscreen religiously. Laser treatments can make your skin sensitive and more prone to photo-damage. Additionally, exposure to UV rays can exacerbate pigmentation after laser treatments. Since UV rays send the pigment into overdrive, they can turn your dark spots darker. Therefore, it is recommended that you apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 every day before stepping out. According to a study conducted in 2020, sunscreen is highly effective in reducing and preventing pigmentation.

  • By Biolite LumiBright

If you are dealing with pigmentation after laser treatment, Lumibright is an incredible option for you. The unique and advanced formula of Lumibright targets pigmentation and helps you achieve luminous and flawless skin without any hassle.

  • Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are one of the best methods to treat pigmentation caused by laser treatments. Chemical peels contain mild acids that are applied in a single layer on the skin. They reduce the appearance of pigmentation by removing the top layer of the skin and uncovering new, healthy skin. However, it is important to note that strong peels are not recommended for post-laser pigmentation. These can irritate your skin and cause inflammation, thus increasing pigmentation.Gentle peels like Vi peels are a good option for pigmentation after laser. Vi Peels are made up of a combination of TCA, vitamin C, salicylic acid, tretinoin and phenol. This medium-depth peel helps in removing the outer layer of the skin, thus stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This peel is a brilliant option for treating pigmentation after laser treatments as it contains phenol. According to a study conducted in 2017, phenol is one of the most effective ingredients used in chemical peels for treating pigmentation.

  • Laser treatments

It might sound counterintuitive, but you can treat post-laser pigmentation with laser treatments. However, it is crucial to choose the right treatment as there is a high risk of exacerbating your pigmentation. PICO Genesis at Biolite is one of the best treatments for pigmentation caused by lasers. PICO Genesis uses three highly-effective wavelengths in ultra-short pulses to cause an intense, non-thermal, photo mechanical disruption and remodeling of the upper dermis. It is more effective than traditional laser treatments because it uses a non-thermal laser to break down pigmentation. Due to this, it gently treats your pigmentation without causing any harm to the surrounding tissues. And the best part? This treatment works on all skin tones and delivers long-lasting results. Laser resurfacing is another great option for pigmentation caused by laser treatments. It is a facial rejuvenation procedure that involves lasers to help improve skin texture and treat pigmentation. The waves penetrate the skin and cause the darkened or discolored skin to flake and fall off following the treatment. You can try Frax Flash at Biolite to address your pigmentation issues.
