TREATMENT REVIEW – PIGMENTATION ON DARKER SKIN TYPE
We have entered the wellness trend about 10 years ago where people were prepared to pay the price to look good and feel better. When technologies started filtrating the market, lasers were limited to certain skin types (namely Fitzpatrick skin types 1-4). An easy way to explain this:- Think of a black and a white car that are standing in the sun… Which car will have a higher temperature inside when you climb into it? The black car. This is because darker colors absorb more heat, where your lighter colors reflect most of the heat.
Using the same laser settings on darker skins like you do with the lighter skins would have definitely burnt them in the past. Taking this beautiful rainbow nation of ours into account – Alma lasers have now perfected the technology that it can treat dark skin types safely and effectively while boasting with the excellent results. They could make this possible due to their extensive In-Motion™ technology. This allows you to move the hand piece freely over the skin, instead of the traditional “pick and place” method, also known as stationary mode.
Which laser system can treat pigmentation on your darker skin types?
Alma Lasers Harmony Lite/ XL/ XL Pro.
How many sessions do I need?
How does it work?
By exposing a pigmented lesion to short pulses of visible light, the temperature in the highly concentrated melanin can be raised sharply, enough to shatter the cells containing the melanin. The body then replaces these cells with new cells generated by the surrounding untreated area. The Alma Laser offers unique wavelength and pulse width capabilities, allowing it to treat pigmented lesions on any skin type.
How long do I need to wait before coming for my next treatment?
Waiting period in between treatments is 2-3 weeks.
Is the treatment painful/ How does it feel when making contact with the skin?
The treatment is virtually pain free. You will feel the sensation of heat on your skin. Just like you would feel when rubbing your hands together for a minute – it feels like a friction build up heat sensation.
How much does it cost?
Depending on what area is treated. Typical full face would cost you ± R 900.
Do I go to theatre and will I need to be under aesthetic?
No sedation is necessary. Treatment can be done in the salon cubicles.
Is there any downtime involved?
There is no downtime. You can go back to normal life straight away.
Who is allowed to do the procedure?
A trained therapist or doctor that has undergone the Alma Lasers training.
