What is spot treatment?

It is possible to treat the spots on our face, hands and whole body, or those that occur afterwards. Treatment of stains can be done with peeling processes (laser, chemical or enzymatic peeling) and Q switches Nd:Yag laser. The most important factor in the treatment of stains is the level of the skin of the pigments that cause the stain. While relatively superficial stains can be treated with peeling processes, the treatment of deeper spots is possible with laser.

With the Q-Switched Nd:YAG lasers we use in our clinic, sun, old age, birthmarks and melasma can also be treated. However, it should always be kept in mind that stains may be resistant to treatment.


How is spot treatment applied?

Before the application, the face is cleaned and the existing stains are revealed. Afterwards, the Q-switched Nd:Yag laser is adjusted according to the type of the existing stain, and the pigments causing the stain are exploded by making shots and they are destroyed.


Spot treatment application and after

Although the application time varies according to the size of the existing stains, it takes 2-3 minutes at the most, and there is no pain except for the small temperature increases that occur during the explosion of the pigments during the application. 1-2 minutes after the laser shot, the color of the shot spot darkens to a color close to purple. This darkness is peeled off like a crust within a maximum of 2 weeks and a fresh pink skin emerges under it. It is important to protect the area from the sun after the application. Make-up can be applied to the treatment area until the crust falls off.

After the pinkness of the skin disappears, it will be seen how much benefit from the treatment. It should be noted that while some stains are resistant to treatment, some stains may require additional treatment sessions.
