Before the procedure
Before the course of treatment can be started, you will be given a thorough skin examination, because the treatment can be decided only after diagnosing the extent and the cause. During this examination, your medical history will also be taken, including your genetic history and details of any medication that you might be taking. The examination will include UV studies, because it is important to understand whether over exposure to sunlight has caused the pigmentation. The medical history will help the doctor understand whether any hormonal imbalances or other medical conditions such as Cushing’s disease or Addison’s disease are causing the condition. It would also be wise to tell the doctor about any surgeries or skin care procedure that you might have undergone in the past.
During the procedure
For your skin pigmentation laser treatment in Bangalore, you will be taken to the treatment room, where a specialised laser will be used on your skin. The intense light of the laser will penetrate through your skin to the pigments in the skin, where it will be absorbed. The energy that is created by the laser will break up the cells of the pigment and the resultant particles will be cleared out by the body’s natural immune system. There could be a little bleeding, crusting or blistering on the skin but this is completely natural and will disappear after a little while. It is important to understand that the pigments will not fade away immediately – some time and a few more sessions will be needed for proper results to become visible.
After the procedure
Immediately after the procedure, your skin will feel tender and there might be some bleeding. You will be given proper instructions on how to take care of your skin and at the best clinic for pigmentation treatment in Bangalore, all these instructions will be given to you in a printed form. You will be given medications to help with the pain as well as for the healing process and you will be asked to not step out into the sun for a few days.
