What is pigment correction?

Pigment correction is treatment to reduce or eliminate unwanted blotches of skin pigment (melanin) using light energy. Signature Med Spa uses the industry-leading Alma Harmony DYE-VL® system to safely and noninvasively target unwanted pigment such as age spots, sun spots, freckles, and melasma. 

Pigment correction is safe and effective for any skin tone or type. The treatment takes only about 30 minutes in the office. 

How does pigment correction work?

The high power non-ablative Q-Switched Nd:YAG 1,064 nm laser and KTP adaptor, which doubles the laser frequency to 532 nm, features a unique double rod laser configuration which maximizes energy production for greater treatment efficiency.

The narrow band targets only the pigment so it doesn’t have adverse effects on your healthy skin nearby and doesn’t disrupt the top layer of your skin. 

The melanin absorbs the light, which breaks it down into microscopic pieces. You’ll flush the pigment particles out of your body through normal lymphatic processes over the weeks ahead. 

In addition, the laser stimulates your body’s cellular renewal and collagen growth processes, which gives you younger and tighter skin. 

The pigment correction process is painless. You might feel a little warmth, but there’s no numbing required and you can return to your regular activities immediately. 

What areas does pigment correction treat?

The most popular treatment area is the face, but the sun and aging process can take their toll on other parts of your body too. 

For example, many people dislike age or sun spots on their hands, chest, neck, or shoulders. The Alma Harmony DYE-VL® system is safe and effective for pigment correction in any of these areas. 

What happens after pigment correction treatment?

After your pigment correction treatments, you’ll experience temporary pigment darkening for up to a week. Spots will become lighter. Combine with other treatments to achieve maximum results. 

Most patients need a series of three or four pigment correction sessions, about one month apart, for ideal results.
