Laser Spot treatments are treatments applied to the scars formed as a result of the change in the amount of melanin pigment in the skin due to pregnancy, sun, and hormonal reasons. As these traces increase, they may cause an undesirable appearance. Treating skin blemishes gives the person smoother and brighter skin. The important thing here is to make the diagnosis of the spot correctly and to apply the appropriate treatment.
Our clinic, it is aimed to eliminate the problems from the root by reaching the spots in all layers of the skin with new technology devices. Sunspots, birth and pregnancy spots (melasma), freckles, spots caused by fungal diseases, and allergic reactions are skin problems that we can solve by applying spot treatment methods.
Laser Sunspot Treatment
Laser sunspot treatment is a treatment based on the removal of some blemishes that occur as a result of excessive exposure of the skin to the sun, which is more common, especially in people with brown and wheat skin. Sunspot treatments are long-lasting and specialist treatments. It is important to choose the right laser and apply it with experienced hands to avoid irritating the skin.
The resistance of each skin to the sun varies according to itself. On the windowsill, on the balcony, on the street, in the car, that is, whenever we are directly exposed to the sun, it can prepare the appropriate ground for the formation of sunspots on our skin. Sunspots are usually seen on the facial areas such as the forehead, cheeks, nose, and upper lip.
Applications such as PRP, mesolifting and derma roller are the most effective methods used to renew and rejuvenate the skin and especially to remove scars.
Laser Pregnancy Spot Treatment
Pregnancy spots, or melasma, is a common skin problem that manifests itself with brown spots on the skin. It has been observed that the cheeks, nose, and forehead area of the face are commonly affected by melasma. These pregnancy spots, which generally appear in the first 2-3 months of pregnancy, can be seen in everyone, especially in young women.
In general, these spots are more common in people with a family history of malaise. Other than that, the exact cause of malaise is unknown. In recent years, studies have been conducted that birth control pills can cause malaise.
The treatment lasts approximately between 4-8 sessions and there should be a gap of 1 week between each session.
Freckle Treatment with Laser
Freckling occurs as a result of excessive sun damage to the skin and the accumulation of melanin pigment above normal. Sunbathing increases freckling. In addition, freckles are more common in people working in open areas such as farmers, sailors, and builders. Freckle treatment with laser is the most successful of all spots treated using a laser. The reason for this success is that the freckles are located in the upper layer of the skin and the melanin forming the freckle tends to absorb the laser light.
In freckle treatment, you will feel as much pain as a mosquito bite when laser beams touch the skin. For this reason, anesthetic cream is used during the sessions. After the application, there may be a feeling of pins and needles for about half an hour. Cold compresses can be applied to reduce this feeling.
After the treatment, redness and swelling occur in the areas where the laser contacts. The blisters disappear in an average of 1 hour, but the redness is slightly bruised and peels off within 7-10 days. Freckle treatment with a laser has no other known side effects.
Freckles are not cancerous tissue, they do not turn into cancer. However, as with all stains on the skin, it is recommended to consult a dermatologist.
Laser Birthmark Treatment
The birthmark is a vascular anomaly seen in 0.3% of newborns. A birthmark usually appears as a skin blemish on the neck or face area. But it can also occur in the body. As age progresses, the stain also gets larger. A birthmark can never regress. Over time, its color darkens and its thickness increases.
Birthmarks can be removed with laser therapy. The treatment aims to capture the blood cells passing through the vessels forming the stain with laser beams. After a while, the vein disappears and the stain begins to fade with each session. 1-2 months after each treatment, the color of the stain should lighten. As the staining stops during the treatment process, the effectiveness can be increased by changing the type of laser.
Laser birthmark treatment can cause temporary bruising and edema on the skin, lasting 5-10 days. In other laser applications, redness and edema may occur. Such side effects are temporary.
Laser Acne Spot Treatment
Laser acne spot treatment is applied to treat pits or blemishes that occur while acne heals. The pits and collapses on the skin cause the skin to look rough and lifeless. If acne scars are deep, this is accompanied by the process of reducing the fat tissue under the skin.
Before laser acne treatment, the depth of the existing scars and the skin type of the person is evaluated. Before the application, a pain reliever cream is applied to the skin. Depending on the width of the application area and the depth of the scars, it takes 20-30 minutes. As a result of the treatment, an improvement is seen in every patient. However, the effectiveness of the treatment varies between 60% and 90%, depending on the depth, extent, and skin type of the scars.
