Facial Pigment Clearance Q&A

What causes a facial pigment issue?

Pigment refers to the coloration of your skin, and your skin gets its color from a pigment called melanin.

When patches of skin become darker than the normal surrounding skin color, it’s called hyperpigmentation. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin forms deposits in your skin.

Hyperpigmentation can affect anyone of any skin tone. The most common, and usually harmless, forms of hyperpigmentation include:

  • Age spots or “liver spots”
  • Sun spots
  • Freckles
  • Melasma spots

Age spots and sun spots are both the result of sun exposure, while freckles are an inherited condition. However, age spots, sun spots, and freckles all become darker and more pronounced when your skin is exposed to the sun.

Melasma spots are larger areas of darkened skin that are often the result of hormonal changes, like those experienced during pregnancy.

Family Health Care Aesthetics offers treatment for these common skin conditions with facial pigment clearance.

How does facial pigment clearance work?

During a facial pigment clearance treatment, your specialist at Family Health Care Aesthetics uses the ICON™ laser to revitalize your skin’s surface. The laser emits pulses of light energy to your skin, which the unwanted pigment absorbs. The laser can work on a small targeted area, or on your entire face.

The ICON laser is the only laser treatment option with an FDA-cleared melanin reader, which determines the density of your melanin before treatment. That allows your specialist to
