Spots on Hands and Body
Spots and pigmented lesions on the skin of the hands can be successfully removed through the application of laser or chemical peel therapies. The doctor, depending on the characteristics of the patient’s skin and the type of spot, will recommend the most appropriate treatment.
Q-SWITCHED AND ALEXANDRITE LASER
FOR CORPORAL SPOT REMOVAL
Our clinic makes both Alexandrite and Nd-YAG Q-Switched laser systems available to our patients. Those are the best reputed technological advancements in the field for both effectiveness and safety reasons. Both platforms cover the full spectrum of spot tonalities, and it is the doctor’s expertise which determines the most appropriate type as per the lesion’s characteristics and the patient’s skin type.
These lasers belong to the ‘non ablative’ category: their low level of aggressiveness to the skin allows the patient to return to normal life without the need to convalesce. The session length is usually shorter than half an hour and tolerance to the treatment is high thanks to the use of an anaesthetic gel previous to application of the laser to reduce skin sensitivity.
CORPORAL PEEL FOR SPOT REMOVAL
The treatment consists of applying one or several chemical agents on the skin of the hands. They produce an exfoliating, depigmenting and regenerative effect on the epidermis’ cells that eliminates the stained skin and replaces it with new skin.
Peel treatments can be classified as superficial, medium deep, and deep, depending on the potency of the preparation, the exposure time and the type of spots to be removed. That’s why treatment must be tailored to suit each patient’s characteristics.
Skin preparation and care both before and after each session is crucial to achieve the best tolerance to the treatment and allow for the most satisfying results. The doctor will analyze the patient’s skin type to determine which cosmetic products to apply.
