The pigmentation laser treatment at Skin Improvement Beauty in Amsterdam makes the skin more even

Do you want to reduce brown spots / pigmentation on the skin? Then choose a laser treatment at Skin Improvement Beauty in Amsterdam. We work with the Harmony XL Pro Essential, with this innovative laser we can effectively treat the deeper layers of skin and the device allows the practitioner to treat with millimeter precision.

Our skin is constantly exposed to UV radiation, which causes the skin to build up “sun damage. With minimal damage, the skin cells can partially repair the damage but as we age, the sun damage is too great and we see obvious pigmentation on the skin. Youthful skin equals even skin, which is why pigment laser treatment is a highly requested treatment.

The Harmony XL Pro Essential laser emits light with a spectrum of wavelengths (540-950 nm). This light is absorbed by the reddish-brown color of the pigment spot. Cells containing excess pigment are temporarily heated. As a result, these cells die. With normal daily skin exfoliation, these cells are then shed. Nicer, smoother and healthier skin emerges below.

  • The pigmentation laser treatment explained

    Pigmentation laser treatment addresses the following indications:

    • Pigmentation spots
    • Hyperpigmentation
    • Age spots

    Depending on the indication and skin quality, 1-3 treatments are required to effectively remove the pigment spots. Pigmentation, however, can come back when you don’t properly protect the skin from the sun. Sometimes a repeat treatment may be necessary for optimal results.

    The pigmentation laser treatment is an innovative facial treatment performed in 3 steps at Skin Improvement Beauty Amsterdam.

    • Cleansing the skin and applying a gel
    • Treating the skin with the Harmony XL Pro Essential
    • Cleansing the skin and applying day care and SPF

    Laser treatment for pigmentation can be perceived as slightly sensitive. During the treatment, you may feel “little pinpricks” on the skin. The skin is cooled and cared for with Aloe Vera gel after the laser treatment. After treatment, small scabs may appear on the treated area.

    What you can do yourself to prevent pigmentation

    Pigmentation is mainly caused by UV. If you properly protect your skin from the sun by applying an SPF50 daily you will be less likely to get pigmentation.
