Hyperpigmentation is a common and usually harmless condition that happens to just about everyone over time. Patches of skin become darker than the skin around it because of an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color. Even freckles, which are an inherited characteristic, are examples of hyperpigmentation. These darkened skin patches can become even darker when exposed to the sun. This condition can affect anyone of any ethnicity and can be caused by sun damage, hormonal changes, skin conditions such as acne, or injuries and surgical wounds.
Fraxel laser treatment, one of the services offered by Skinatomy Clinic, is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses fractional laser technology to target specific areas of the skin. This treatment is effective for reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, acne scars, and other skin imperfections. After the treatment, patients may experience redness, swelling, and peeling as the skin undergoes the healing process. In this article, we will break down the fraxel laser recovery process day by day.
