What is skin brightening?
Pigmentation has existed as a problem for anyone who is exposed to the sun or has a regular outdoor routine. Skincare industry legend Dr Nick Lowe explains: “UVA stimulates your pigment cells called Melanocytes to manufacture the pigment called Melanin. This is responsible for your tan and also your unwanted dark patches.”
Overtime, different methods have been developed to reduce pigmentation and restore our skin to its natural healthy shade. One such method is skin brightening aesthetic laser treatment.
Laser stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. It is one of the most effective ways of removing dark spots and pigmentation from the skin. Especially because laser disintegrates melanin, it is a very effective method of skin treatment.
Laser whitening works by directing concentrated beams of light energy on the dark spots. The spots slowly begin to disintegrate layer by layer.
Gracia Cutis is an aesthetic laser treatment clinic in Kolkata which is the sole owner of premiere laser technology in Easter India that promises to provide state of the art skin brightening treatment by using a specific machine called Helios III Q +.
What is Helios III Q+?
The Helios Series of Laseroptek is a series of machines developed for treating pigmentation on the skin. Helios models are essentially Q switched fractional lasers, where Nd:YAG is short for neodymium-doped yttrium garnet.
The HELIOS II laser represents a new standard for the treatment of pigmented lesions. The HELIOS II targets chromophore or melanin and is used extensively to target pigment and pigmented lesions in the skin. Since its debut, HELIOS has set a new benchmark for all Q-Switch Nd:YAG lasers with its patented technologies
The machine targets the chromophore (melanin) in regions where they are present at an abnormal level. The machine gives out an incredibly stable beam of output energy. The laser has the unique ability to shift from single to twin pulse.
The single pulse has a focused beam that delivers one single stream of focused energy. This mode is ideal for treating thin or localized lesions like tattoos and scars.
The Pulse To Pulse mode provides two peaks which deliver more energy than a single pulse but one that is spread over a greater ground. This is the mode that is ideal for pigmented liaisons.
What is 4g toning?
The usage of 4G toning technology allows Helios 3 to provide quicker and more efficient laser toning. In general, a toner uses two modes- one black another blue, and runs on a single wavelength. The Helios models however use four modes or two wavelengths which penetrate the different depths of the skin and reduce pigmentation faster and more effectively.
Should You Get this treatment?
Helios models are able to selectively destroy the melanin in the deeper levels of the dermis. If you are suffering from severe pigmentation like ABNOM 9 Acquired Bilateral Naevus of Ota like Macult, or blemishes and freckles from trauma and acne, this is a treatment you should definitely be considering. To know if your skin is suitable for this kind of treatment, you should consult your dermatologist and visit a laser treatment clinic for personalized advice based on your skin condition.
