We perform laser peels for “benign epidermal pigmented lesions and rough texture”. These are those irritating brown marks that people find annoying with some rough skin. We use an amazingly powerful technology from Hoya Conbio called the Medlite C6 laser which allows for an ideal light based peel. We use a particular wavelength called the 532 nm light (Green Light) that is suited for lighter skin types.
The advantage of this peel compared to IPL (which a lot of spas and clinics use) is that it does not leave any residual pigment behind that is left after 5 or 6 IPL treatments. 532nm can remove any light pigmentation effectively. We usually find that couples of sessions are enough for the treatment. Once the treatment is done a mild redness is left on the skin for 4 days. This can be nicely covered up with mineral make up. The brown spots start to lift and flake off over a period of 7 to 10 days with small crusts. It is no touch treatment.
In our practice these laser peels are even more popular than Botox or fillers. This laser peel requires maintenance once or twice a year. We prefer a real laser to an IPL. It is a much more effective treatment.
