Laser Treatment For Skin Pigmentation & Hyperpigmentation

Skin pigmentation conditions influence skin color and skin tone. We have pigment in our body called melanin that determines the colour of our bodies, hair and eyes. Those with a darker skin color would have more melanin in their skin cells than people of lighter skin, so once the skin cells are weakened or defective it can reduce the development of melanin, which in effect would impact the skin.If you wish to learn more about this, visit Cliffside Skin & Laser.

Laser therapy works by destroying the skin’s top layers, causing the collagen to step in and start fixing the damage, such that after a couple of weeks the skin appears plumper and revitalized. The laser machine resurfaces the skin and you can see a gradual change in skin texture and smoothness for many months as the laser activates the collagen output.
