Skin Pigmentation – Correction & Prevention
Sun damage and age spots are the result of natural aging processes, sun exposure and hormonal changes.
Pigmented spots result from an increase in melanin production caused by these factors.
Formatk’s IPL technology offers a unique and proven solution for correcting this condition by targeting the melanin in the darkened areas. The energy delivered causes pigmented lesions to fade through your body’s natural healing process, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and younger looking and with a smoother tone.
Correction is important, but prevention is smart. Help your clients avoid various skin conditions and maintain their health by incorporating regular skin rejuvenation treatments in your practice.
According to a Harvard study, a routine SR protocol can reverse 60% of aging genes expressions to resemble younger skin and maintain healthy skin.
Tips and Tricks
Diagnosis: A correct diagnosis is vital for a successful treatment, taking into account the type of skin, the type of pigmentation, and how deep the pigmentation is buried.
2 Step Treatment: For a more even skin tone and enhanced results, first perform a photorejuvenation pass on the entire face or neck prior to treating individual pigmented lesions.
Home Skin Care: Two weeks prior to the IPL treatment, start using hydrating skin care and skin lightening agents, such as kojic acid and Arbutin.
Scabs: Scabs may appear after the treatment. Let them peel off naturally and do not scratch them. Soothing cream and hydration can help reduce the itching sensation.
Post Treatment: Keep using hydrating skin care and skin lightening agents at home through out the treatment period.
