The laser to remove skin blemishes
The laser technology used at professional skin care clinics is quite a revolution in aesthetic medicine and, in particular, in the field of dermatology.
The appearance of spots is usually caused, in many cases, by prolonged exposure to the sun, stress, tobacco, pollution, poor diet, ageing of the skin or hormonal changes, in addition to other external aggressions that cause a change in pigmentation. In each case, the laser and aesthetic medicine specialist must first identify the type of spots according to their characteristics and their origin in order to provide the appropriate treatment.

How is the removal of skin spots with a laser?
The laser acts effectively for depigmentation by reducing the accumulation of melanin that creates the spot so that it is possible to homogenize the tone and unify the colour of the skin. Although the results are evident from the first session, the treatment protocol consists of 3 sessions spaced a month apart, a protocol that adapts to each skin type’s conditions.
Before laser stain removal, it is essential to inform people about taking drugs, as some of them can have a photosensitizing effect and interfere with laser treatment. The treatment to remove the spots with laser, although it is a quick procedure that does not require topical anaesthesia, can cause a slight redness at the end of the session, which lasts 24 or 48 hours.
After facial rejuvenation, it is best to revisit a laser skin care clinic periodically to receive treatments. Subsequently, the patient must clean the treated areas with saline serum and apply a product such as petroleum jelly to avoid tightness of the face. A few days after the treatment, you will experience a sensation similar to that of sunburn, with itching, tightness and sagging (exfoliation) of the skin. The skin is pink during the first two or three weeks in the treated areas; the redness disappears in two or three months. During the six weeks after the treatment, the use of products containing glycolic acid should be avoided.
The most common complications of laser facial rejuvenation are:
- Changes in skin pigmentation.
- The reappearance of herpes, primarily if the treatment is carried out around the mouth.
- Inflammation. It is advisable to sleep with two pillows for the first few days.
- Scars although it is a rare complication, some cases have been described.
What types of laser for facial blemish removal are there?
Today laser systems are very effective for the treatment of solar or senile lentigos, which are the most common type of spots. These technologies can be combined within the same session, in different spots. This allows us to optimize results, leave cleaner and more beautiful skin, and achieve a rejuvenating effect on the treated skin. At AGB, we have three different types of light technology to treat other benign pigmentations.
- Intense pulsed light (IPL): eliminates the traces left on our skin by the sun, stress and the passage of time.
- Thermage: regenerative skin maintenance treatment that acts on collagen, eliminating sagging and wrinkles and improving the skin’s appearance and tone.
- Indiba: this radiofrequency technique is used to rejuvenate the skin, achieving a revitalized and firm appearance on the face and body.
What care is after the laser treatment?
After the laser facial treatment, you have to be especially careful with the sun. Exposure should be avoided for one or two months, and during treatment, it is advisable to use high sun protection with a minimum of SPF 50 on exposed skin areas. However, it is advisable to always use a sun protection factor.
On the other hand, makeup can be used from the day after the treatment, without forgetting the importance of dermo-cosmetic care (cleaning, hydration, nutrition and protection), following the recommendations that the medical-aesthetic specialist may have determined. It might be viable in some cases that a small scab may appear that would eventually disappear, normalizing the skin in about ten days.
