Sun exposure is the primary cause of premature ageing, brown spots, wrinkles and skin cancer. Photoageing and Photodamage refer to the changes in appearance and function of the skin caused by repeated exposure to the sun rather than merely the passage of time.
Birthmarks are pigmentation spots present since birth. They are usually located In the deeper layers of the skin and hence may take a significant time to lighten with multiple laser treatments. The good thing about birthmarks is that once you lighten its appearance, most of it should not recur (*pigmentation problems that have a tendency to recur include Melasma).
Melasma is a skin condition characterized by patches of brown and gray patches on both sides of the face. Its is most common in women who are pregnant, peri-menopausal or undergoing hormonal replacement therapy. Genetic disposition may play a role in Melasma. If you have a family history of Melasma, you should be especially diligent about protecting you skin from the sun.
Laser and light combination system (LLCS) helps to lighten Pigmentation by a process called “Selective Photothermolysis”. It refers to the precise targeting of a structure or tissue using a specific wavelength of light with the intention of absorbing light into that target area alone. The energy directed into the target area produces sufficient heat to damage the target while allowing the surrounding area to remain unharmed.
Laser and light combination system (LLCS) uses a strict protocol that effectively breaks up pigmentation in skin without making it red, swollen and burnt. We strongly discourage excessively long duration and strong dosage beyond the recommended PPP safety protocol as this only increases the risk of medical complications and downtime.
Like your body, skin is affected by the stresses of everyday life and needs regular maintenance to stay healthy. PPP’s treatment is your skin’s gym, helping you to condition your skin to become less prone to pore blockage, pimple development and pigment spots over time. Like the gym, frequent intervals of controlled and safe dosages will give your skin long-term strength and long-lasting health overtime.
