Dark Spots / Pigmented Lesions Treatment

Melanin is responsible for skin color. Different people have different amounts of melanin. Some types of melanin occur at the point of birth while others come with age. An excessive melanin concentration on your skin may lead to birthmarks, pigmented lesions, age spots and brown spots as well.

Solar lentigines or dark spots is one of the most common conditions that bring people to see a cosmetic doctor. These lesions come as a result of the excessive skin pigment due to congenital as well as sunlight exposure. Our treatments for pigment lesions in Los Angeles offer all the possible medical solutions. Our dark spot removal method is non invasive and virtually pain free.

At Sculpt DTLA, we have two excellent treatments which will help with pigmented lesions:

Intensed Pulse Light (IPL)

This time proven therapy removes those unsightly red and brown blemishes on your face such as freckles, age spots, and spider veins.  Better for lighter skin types and not very useful for Melasma

PIQo4 Laser

This is our newest state of the art laser which is the most powerful in its class.  It will remove all the pigmented lesions that IPL treatments will do but it can be used for both the light and darker skin types and is the treatment of choice for Melasma.

Both the IPL and Piqo4 laser treatments are “lunchtime” treatments.  In other words they take about 20 to 30 minutes to perform.. There is very little down time after the treatment, hence they are “lunchtime” treatments.  In general 4 to 6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart is what is recommended.
