Hyperpigmentation & Melasma Treatment
Dark Spots | Brown Spots | Freckles | Sun Damage Removal
Favia MediSpa in Crystal Lake, IL now offers revolutionary Harmony XL Pro™ DYE-VL laser skin clarifying treatments – to remove hyperpigmentation, melasma, freckles, dark spots, brown spots, sun spots and other signs of aging and sun damage.
Medically called “pigmented lesions,” dark spots on the skin can be the result of sun exposure, aging, heredity and even certain medications. These brown spots may be either flat or raised, and are the result of overproduction of melanocyte cells in the body, which produce the pigment known as melanin. While freckles can be cute, excessive brown blotches on the skin can add years to a person’s appearance and undermine their self-confidence.
But the fast, painless Harmony XL Pro™ DYE-VL laser delivers spectacular skin resurfacing, clarifying and antiaging results – for clear skin that you will love to be in! And these state-of-the-art laser treatments typically only take about 30 minutes to complete in our Crystal Lake office – so you can return to work or resume your daily activities immediately afterwards.
Harmony XL Pro™ DYE-VL will also improve dull complexions, enlarged pores, Rosacea and redness, as well as smooth the texture of the skin, and create a more overall even skin tone, all of which makes skin look visibly younger and more attractive. And, unlike many other skin resurfacing lasers, the Harmony XL Pro™ DYE-VL is safe for even the most sensitive skin, as well as every skin tone, including darker skin colors. As an added bonus, because the DYE-VL laser works beneath the surface without damaging the visible layers of skin, there is virtually no downtime.
If you would like to turn back the clock on dark spots, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and other pigmented lesions call Favia MediSpa in Crystal Lake, IL to schedule your personal skin rejuvenation consultation – and take the first step toward a more beautiful, confident and younger looking you!
How DYE-VL Laser Dark Spot Removal Works
The state-of-the-art Harmony Dye-VL laser is a fifth generation IPL (intense pulsed light) system which incorporates Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) for the most effective skin rejuvenation, with the least discomfort or downtime. The laser light energy is designed to pass through the outer layer of skin (epidermis) and penetrate the sub-surface skin layers without damaging the surface. The laser light energy is then absorbed by the dark color (pigmentation) of the melanin in the lesions or spots.
As the dark spots are heated they break down, while the laser also simultaneously stimulates the body’s natural healing processes – resulting in rejuvenation, resurfacing and clarifying of the skin. The pigmented or brown spots will initially become darker for 5 to 7 days, and some mild crusting can last up to 10 days. Then the pigmented areas will flake off, or be absorbed and eliminated by the body over time. As the darks spots begin to clear and vanish patients are left with clearer, smoother and more even skin tone.
Most patients will see dramatically visible results after a single treatment. However, the total number of sessions a patient needs will depend on the condition of the skin, and the extent, darkness and location of the pigmentation. On average patients typically only require 3 – 6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.
