When you look in the mirror, are you happy? Do you wish that some of those little (or

not so little) sun spots and other discolorations could disappear? You are not alone.

The causes of skin pigmentation irregularities come from various sources. When exposing oneself to excessive amounts of direct sunlight or any other sources of strong heat, you are inviting skin pigmentation to your face. Other causes can be related to the medication you are taking. Certain types of medicines may cause skin pigmentation as a side effect which might present a conflict between taking a prescribed drug and the possibility of skin issues. It is also not unusual to find that skin around a wound can lead to increased pigmentation too. Remember when we told our teenagers that stress caused acne outbreaks? Well, stress can also produce increased melanin resulting in “skin spots.”

Our skin is very precious. Just the number of creams on the market should give us a good idea of how important our appearance is to us. Spring is always about getting back to the basics with a fresh polished look. Your skin has just endured one of the harshest winters on record and now it’s time to transform, diffuse and smooth the texture by prepping your skin for the warmer months.

The skin on your face is your canvas to creating and achieving the look you want with the color palette of choice, however if your skin tone and texture is uneven the process can be challenging.

Today, with the intervention of medical aesthetics it is now possible to reverse the signs of sun damaged skin with cosmetic laser treatment and a simple skin care routine for maintenance. Below are some answers to the most commonly asked questions about laser treatments...

Q: How do lasers work?

A:  Lasers use safe yet powerful beams of light that pass harmlessly through skin layers to stimulate the precursors to new collagen production tightening the surrounding tissue, resulting in improved skin texture and reduced signs of aging.

Q: What are some other skin irregularities that can be treated with lasers?

A:  Lasers can treat rosacea, facial and leg spider veins, acne scars, large pores, fine lines, broken blood vessels.  Other treatments include permanent hair removal and skin rejuvenation.

Q:  Is the treatment painful?

A:   The treatment causes only minimal discomfort and you will be able to return to normal activities immediately. Sunscreen should be applied as a post treatment precaution.
