Treating Pigmentation Concerns with Medical-Grade Lasers


Finding solutions to treat cosmetic pigmentation skin concerns can be challenging as practitioners research different methods to offer in their med spa or aesthetic laser business. While there are plenty of options, for example, retinol, chemical peels, and prescription medications, medical-grade lasers can be the fastest and most effective treatment option. Understanding the difference in available technology and finding the best laser device for your aesthetic clinic is crucial to the successful start or expansion of your business. Keep reading this article to learn more about treating cosmetic pigmentation skin concerns with medical-grade lasers.

The Asclepion PicoStar®, backed by Astanza

The PicoStar® is a Q-switched picosecond tattoo removal laser that can remove most tattoo ink colors faster than traditional nanosecond technology. This aesthetic laser device houses two wavelengths, 1064 nm, and 532 nm, with a maximum pulse duration of up to 400 picoseconds and 2.0 GW of power. In addition to laser tattoo removal, the PicoStar® has other treatment capabilities that expand practitioners’ services, increasing client satisfaction and clinic profitability.

This picosecond laser is extremely effective in natural pigmentation correction. Benign pigmented lesions such as sun spots (lentigines solaris), age spots, and brown spots can be removed as the melanin in the lesions absorbs the wavelengths of light energy. The PicoStar® effectively treats unwanted pigmentation without harming the surrounding skin tissue – revealing even-toned skin. Learn more about the PicoStar®, its features and capabilities, by viewing the on-demand webinar, Inside the Laser: The PicoStar®.

The Asclepion QuadroStarPROYELLOW, backed by Astanza

Astanza also offers other lasers that primarily focus on pigmentation correction instead of laser tattoo removal. The QuadroStarPROYELLOW is the first pro yellow tabletop laser for pigmentation and skin toning. Skin conditions like melasma, brown spots, and hyperpigmentation can be treated with this medical-grade laser that heats up and breaks down pigment particles using its 577 nm wavelength.

The QuadroStarPROYELLOW device is a small, compact system with a homogeneous beam profile to maximize precision. The additional scanner handpiece cools the skin throughout each session, allowing practitioners to provide a faster and more comfortable treatment for patients.
