Natural aging process and sun exposure leads to ageing and
development of age spots, wrinkles, fine line, open pores and uneven texture.
Weak and broken elastic & collagen fibers lead to saggy and dull skin giving aged look, however its possible to improve skin texture, complexion and firmness by
induction of collagen and elastin renewal with laser photo rejuvenation.
Conventional treatments include Dermabrasion, peeling etc., good for fine scars & pigmentation, but magnitude of which is too high for rejuvenation only. light therapy
improves texture of skin and dermis by collagen and elastin renewal both in short and long terms, means light rejuvenation can be used even just before attending some

Abnormal Pigmentation, Melasma & Cholasma :
Abnormal pigmentation, like dark spots , melasma (on cheeks) and cholasma (forehead) appear with ageing and with hormonal
influence. Pulse light / laser therapy reduces hyper-pigmentation over time.
Age Spots :
Age spots are focal collection of hyperpigmentation causing deposits of melanin. Light therapy stimulates and heats up melanocytes to reduce their
concentration and activity and reduces pigmentation over time.
Vascular Spots :
Vascular spots may be small points or large areas, involving small vessels or medium size vessels like stork bites, strawberry haemangiomas.
Laser Light in such cases targets heamoglobin in blood vessels to transfer heat energy and to coagulate the vessel over time, there by reducing vascular spots.
