Before and after picture of arm pigmentation removal
There are a wide variety of laser technologies out there to help remove excess pigment, or hyperpigmentation, from just about anywhere on the face or body. However, before you embark on a treatment, such as arm or face pigmentation removal, there are a few things you should know.
No laser technology is suitable for use on very dark skins. Not only will it not work, but it could actually cause dark marks and scarring.
Some laser clinics will tell you that their laser technology can be used on dark skin, because they want your money. But this is just not true—don’t trust them!
Similarly, if you have are darker olive tone to your skin, but your skin is not very dark, then it may need to be carefully prepped prior to embarking on any laser treatment, such as arm or face pigmentation removal, or even laser hair removal. Why? Because these kind of Mediterranean skin tones are more likely to develop trauma pigmentation—that is, dark marks of pigment caused by wounding the skin that are incredibly hard to get rid of. Good clinics know this kind of skin needs to be prepped first—every time!
Lastly, no laser technology can lighten your overall skin tone at all.
If you are considering this kind of arm, body or face pigmentation removal, be sure your clinician is qualified and knows what they are doing. Sometimes, it is worth paying a bit more to ensure the health of your skin.
