This Face Treatment Gradually Gives You More Youthful, Supple Skin

15-07-2019

You want your skin to look more radiant, but you don’t want it to seem as if you’ve had a lot of work done, and you need the improvement to look gradual. It takes more than one factor to combat hyper-pigmentation. The formation of a visible dark spot is caused by an overproduction of melanin (the dark pigment produced by the skin). This could be due to years of sun exposure, inadequate use of sunscreen, acne breakouts, hormonal changes, skin injury or an inflammatory skin disorder, and/or medical conditions.

Treating this complex issue requires a combination of methods: applying (and reapplying) sunscreen, staying out of the sun (and/or wearing a hat), a skincare routine that includes brightening products, resisting the urge to scratch (which leads to an inflammatory response in skin), as well as regular brightening face treatment.

The secret lies in the advanced skincare solutions used – the PicoPlus technology. This laser has a higher photo-acoustic effect (more energy) which means that a picosecond laser shatters pigmentation into smaller fragments which are easily removed by the body’s immune system, to give skin a clear and tone in just 60min.

The PicoPlus laser treatment from Clinic MF incorporates the latest laser technology to address a suite of common age markers, including wrinkles, enlarged pores and unwanted pigmentation. Using ultra-short 450 picosecond laser pulses, the treatment works on various skin imperfections such as acne, brown spots, dullness and even fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen production to plump the skin.

The PicoPlus machine has five types of unique handpieces that perform different specialty treatments. This provides the treatment versatility, precise fluence and pulse control needed to achieve the results patients want, regardless of difficulty, revealing a smoother and more refined skin texture.

This makes skin feel firmer and look smoother, while fine lines and wrinkles become less obvious. The skin’s pigment cells also absorb the light energy, converting it into heat to break down excess dark pigment in the skin, brightening your complexion. Clinic MF says that most customers found that the treatment is pain-free with no downtime, and leaves them with glowing skin after one session.
