Pigmentation of the Skin

evo-lightPigmentation of the skin is caused by an overproduction of melanin in your skin. Hyperpigmentation of the skin is caused by numerous different reasons. Some of the causes include chronic sun exposure, hereditary brown spots, brown spots caused by medications, changes in the color of skin that happens after a rash as well as systemic conditions.

Dr. Banki uses Evo Light laser to treat pigmentation of the skin. Evo Light laser is an easy and safe laser for the treatment of brown spots and sun-damaged skin. Evo Light laser: it is everything you need to treat brown spots gently and effectively. The device has both 755 nm Alexandrite, and 532 nm KTP laser. During treatment laser targets the pigment associate with the brown spots, heat that is generated by the laser will destroy these pigmented cells. The laser feels like a rubber band snapped against the skin.

Immediately following the treatment, an ice pack may be applied to soothe the treated area. Care should be taken in the first few days following treatment to avoid scrubbing the area, and abrasive skin cleansers should be avoided. A bandage or patch may help to prevent abrasion of the treated area. To ensure the best results possible for this treatment it is recommended to avoid sun exposure before and after the treatment to maximize results. Dr. Banki recommends using an SPF of 30 or higher and has his own brand of sunscreen, which can be purchased at the time of your session.

Also, Aquafor or moisturizer applied to the treatment area will help with the healing process. The results of the laser treatment will vary depending on the condition that is being treated and the number of treatments required for clearance. The majority of patients will only require one or two treatments.
