What is Laser Pigmentation Treatment?
Pigmentation or patches of discoloration along the skin are normal but often cause our patients distress. Whether your hyperpigmentation stems from rosacea, other vascular conditions, or simply an accumulation of hyperpigmented cells, treating these problem areas can prove to be difficult without the help of a professional. This is where Dr. Armstrong steps in with the VBeam laser system. The VBeam uses advanced laser technology to target hyperpigmented cells deep within the skin, reducing their appearance and resulting in an even and radiant complexion. VBeam is the perfect laser treatment for nearly any pigmented lesion and vascular condition as it heats the vessels within the deeper layers of skin to reduce their appearance or eliminate them completely. Because the VBeam laser system is so versatile, Dr. Armstrong may also recommend this treatment for patients with spider veins, angiomas, port wine stains, seborrheic keratosis, and more.

What Can I Expect During my Laser Pigmentation Treatment?
Your laser pigmentation treatments will be performed by Dr. Jennifer Armstrong in our state-of-the-art facility. Before your laser pigmentation treatment begins, a topical anesthetic may be applied to your treatment area, typically around the central points of the face. This is just to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment. Once numb, Dr. Armstrong will begin applying short, quick bursts of laser technology along the skin. Most patients find the feeling of the laser similar to the sensation of a rubber band being snapped against the skin. Most treatment sessions typically take between 10 and 20 minutes to complete.
What Can I Expect After my Laser Pigmentation Treatment?
Because the VBeam uses a non-ablative laser system, there is no formal downtime or recovery period associated with each treatment. While patients may report mild redness and sensitivity in their treated areas, most are able to return to their normal daily activities including work immediately following their treatment sessions. Dr. Armstrong and her team may recommend receiving a series of five to eight treatments over the course of several months to achieve your ultimate results and provide you with a medical-grade skincare routine to soothe the skin between laser treatment sessions.
