Dark Spot Corrector Tx in Edmonton
FAQs on our Dark Spot Corrector Tx in Edmonton, ACLARA MEQ: How does this dark spot corrector treatment (ACLARA ME) get rid of pigmented lesions?
A: The applied IPL-DPC targeted areas absorb the pulse light, breaking the pigmented lesion into tiny particles which then disappear when they rise to the surface of the skin as scabs that naturally slough off with exfoliation within 1-2 weeks.
Q: What is IPL-DPC?
A: IPL-DPC stands for Intense Pulse Light- Dynamic Pulse Control. This dark spot corrector treatment emits a light beam into the skin that is absorbed by different skin lesions. Through selective photothermolysis, this light pulse selectively destroys a specified target without damaging the surrounding tissue. The DPC technology means that we can determine the “aggressiveness” of the treatment based on the duration of the pulse; shorter pulses are more aggressive, delivering the light beam in a shorter period of time, while longer pulses are less aggressive as they have a longer period to deliver the light beam. The different range of pulse durations results in a major increase in the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
Q: How many ACLARA ME treatments are required?
A: The typical regimen is an average of 6 treatment sessions, spaced 6 weeks apart. However, the number of treatments is completely up to you depending on the results you desire.
Q: How long is the recovery phase? Is there any downtime?
A: Our dark spot corrector treatment, ACLARA ME, does NOT require any downtime whatsoever! You can come in during your lunch hour and return to work and no one will ever know why you look better than you did in the morning! ;)
Q: How long does a treatment take?
A: This depends on the different treatments you would like during your session, however, a full ACLARA ME photofacial takes 15-30 minutes, after which you can continue your daily routine.
Q:Is the dark spot corrector treatment (ACLARA ME) painful?
A: No, during the procedure, a slight, momentary stinging sensation may be felt, comparable to the snapping of a small elastic band, but not pain.
Q:Is ACLARA ME Safe?
A: Our Skin Experts are knowledgeable on our technology, AND on the biology of the skin. This increases the safety of all of our treatments. Our treatments are non-invasive and safe, with minimum side effects if any at all. Side effects could possibly include:
