La Bella Med Spa specializes in Pigmentation Disorders

Pigmentation means coloring. Skin pigmentation disorders affect the color of your skin. Your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin, and when these cells become damaged or unhealthy, it affects melanin production. Some pigmentation disorders affect just patches of skin. Others affect your entire body.

If your body makes too much melanin, your skin gets darker. Pregnancy, certain diseases, and sun exposure all can make your skin darker.

At La Bella Medical Laser Center, we specialize in treatment of excess pigmentation. We combine medication and laser therapy for all types of skin texture and color.

We use a holistic and tailored approach in our regimen to rid you of troublesome discolorations.

Pigmentation Disorders

Age Spots

age spots

Excessive exposure to the sun early in life can make a person look years older than he or she really is. This premature skin damage from sun exposure is called photoaging.  Unlike natural aging, photoaging causes freckles, dark spots, leathery skin and deep wrinkles.  Photorejuvenation is an advanced treatment for age spots and sun damage.  Photorejuvenation is an advanced treatment for age spots and sun damage.  The BBL light therapy targets unwanted pigment spots without harming surrounding skin.  In just a few simple treatment sessions, pigment appears lighter and your skin looks younger.

Rosacea

Rosacea

Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness in the face.  It is often accompanied by small, red, pus-filled bumps.  This condition can affect anyone, but it is most common in middle-aged, fair-skinned people.  Left untreated, rosacea seems to worsen over time.  Signs and symptoms may flare up over a period of weeks to months and then diminish before flaring up again. There is no cure for rosacea, but photo therapy with the Sciton laser can control and reduce the signs and symptoms

Melasma

Melasma

Melasma is a common skin problem. It causes brown to gray-brown patches on the face. Most people get it on their cheeks, bridge of their nose, forehead, chin, and above their upper lip. It also can appear on other parts of the body that get lots of sun, such as the forearms and neck. Women are far more likely than men to get melasma. It is so common during pregnancy that some people call it the mask of pregnancy. Hormones seem to trigger melasma.

Bruises

Bruises

A bruise forms when a blow or impact breaks blood vessels near your skin’s surface. A small amount of blood leaks into the tissues and darkens leaving a black-blue appearance.  The color changes as the area heals.  BBL laser treatments deliver short bursts of intense but gentle light to these areas.  Absorption of the light causes “photothermolysis” or heat damage to the colored lesion breaking them apart resulting in improvement in color.  Other dark lesions can be treated with BBL as well, such as: Port wine Stains, Birthmarks and Cafe au Lait spots.

Sun Damage

Sun Damage

To protect itself from the damaging effects of the sun, your skin increases its production of the dark brown pigment called melanin.  The extra melanin makes your skin look darker or sun-tanned.  In some cases, the sun causes uneven increases in melanin, which produces irregular and uneven pigmentation of the skin.  The damage from tanning beds mimics the sun damage to the skin.  The Sciton offers an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion with BBL light therapy.  BBL laser treatments deliver short bursts of intense but gentle light to these areas.  Absorption of the light causes “photothermolysis”, or heat damage to the colored lesion breaking them apart resulting in improvement in color.

Treatments for Pigmentation Disorders:

Skin Care

Our arsenal of skin care products includes the medical grade Elta MD and Allergan’sSkin Medica Acne system. The simple 3-step process helps reduce the number of acne blemishes and gently removes environmental pollutants while hydrating sensitive skin.

 

Chemical Peels

Skin Medica’s peels are world-renowned in the field of acne treatment. Skin Medica helps provide vibrant, radiant looking skin with minimal downtime. We improve the appearance of skin often with noticeable results after just one peel. Acne grades I-IV will receive a minimal of 6 peels during our 8-week System.

 

BBL Photo Facial

BBL’s infrared energy allows controlled heating of sub-epidermal layers of the skin. Blue, red, and yellow light therapy kills bacteria, tightens skin, rebuilds collagen, and treats overactive sebaceous gland. The result is reduction of acne, plumping of the skin, and correcting skin imperfections.

 

Pro Fractional Laser Therapy

We do not use a one-size-fits-all approach to help your unique condition. Each client is different with different concerns. Skin resurfacing using Sciton’sProFractional or Contour TRL is top of the line therapy to improve skin texture, reduce pores size, and stimulate new collagen growth. Our FDA approved advanced treatments can tighten the skin without surgery.

 

Laser Scar Reduction

Our unique La Bella Acne System includes laser scar revision as a part of the regimen. After stopping the active outbreaks and beginning the home care regimen, deep pocks, scars and cysts size can be reduced with combination laser therapy.  Your treatments are custom to your condition and will be adjusted according to your progress.
