Over the years the skin changes. Fine lines appear, elasticity is reduced and the texture becomes coarser. Sometimes pigment spots appear, caused by sun exposure, ageing or hormonal disruptions. Beauté Totale can treat this!
What can Beauté Totale do against pigment spots?
Beauté Totale uses an IPL handpiece of the Harmony XL (Almalasers). This stands for Intense Pulsed Light, so we work with light. Your skin absorbs the light and converts it into heat. This causes the spots to fade. Initially, the spots will become darker because pigment is deposited to the skin surface. After about 10 days the pigment fades from the skin and the result is already visible after 1 treatment.
Is the treatment safe?
Extremely safe. During treatment the surrounding tissue remains undamaged. The equipment has been tested and has been *- FDA approved for a long time.
How many treatments are needed?
Usually 2 treatments already provide a substantial improvement. Sometimes 3 to 5 sessions are required. Depending on the amount of spots.
Are the pigment spots permanently removed?
The treatment has lasting results, but over time new spots can appear. You can support your skin through proper care to use at home. Besides the fact that these products have a whitening effect, they also have an anti aging effect due to the very high dose vitamin C.
How does the skin react to the treatment?
Immediately after a treatment your skin can be red and irritated, like a sunburn. This may be cooled. The sunburnt feeling dissappears after a few hours. Sometimes a swelling or or scabs can occur which dissappear after 7 to 10. In most cases the spots become darker after a treatment. This is a good sign and indicates that the spots are damaged and will soon disappear. You are allowed to camouflage this with make up.
Are there any possible complications?
This is extremely unusual. If you suffer from acne or cold sores the treatment could spark a flare up. The treatment leaves no scars. Should scabs occur then they disappear automatically. Do not remove the scabs, doing this could cause scars.
