What is Illuminase?
Illuminase is an innovative procedure created by a leading cosmetic laser surgeon and board-certified dermatologist for the treatment of melasma (facial brown patches) and brown discoloration of the skin. This treatment has been clinically proven¹ to outperform other procedures by combining microdermabrasion with laser and a tailored skin care regimen.*
How Is the Procedure Done?
Microdermabrasion removes the dead skin cell layer, enabling enhanced laser light penetration, while increasing skin cell turnover. Low energy laser treatment, using the Alex TriVantage, then breaks up the brown skin pigment to smaller particles which are ultimately cleared by the body’s natural healing process. Finally, a customized skin care regimen is then recommended to prevent hyperpigmentation from recurring.*
What Is the Post-Treatment Like?
The Illuminase three-pronged approach is pain-free and requires no recovery or down time. More aggressive treatments can worsen melasma and hyperpigmentation by irritating and inflaming the skin but Illuminase is so gentle that it does not stimulate pigment production. While multiple treatments are often required for optimal results, patients begin to see improvements within weeks of the first treatment.*
