Over time, cells containing the pigment melanin can slowly build up under the surface of the skin, mostly due to prolonged sun exposure. These melanocytes cause freckles and other dark blemishes on the skin, commonly known as age spots or sun spots. Some patients have discolored birthmarks, or experience discoloration to the face and other areas as the result of various hormonal changes.

Many patients are displeased with the level of pigmentation that develops in their skin over time, and there are several treatments available, from depigmentation creams applied to the face to chemical peels that remove damaged skin and encourage the regeneration of new, healthy skin cells. However, none is as effective or precise as laser therapy in reducing the appearance of areas of hyperpigmentation.

How Lasers Can Be Used to Reduce Hyperpigmentation

Light-based therapies have long been an asset to the realm of nonsurgical cosmetic interventions, and lasers have proven to be effective in treating a variety of skin conditions. Favored by Dr. Sheena Kong for precision treatments, the lasers used to address hyperpigmentation specifically target the melanin in the cells, leaving healthy cells unharmed. Laser pulses draw the melanin out to the surface of the skin, causing some patients to notice an initial increase in pigmentation immediately following treatment. It will then dry and peel off, being shed through the skin, leaving clear, fresh, healthy skin in its place.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

You are on our minds during this recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID 19), and we felt it is appropriate to keep you informed of the procedures and actions we are taking to ensure your health and safety.

Our practice is considered a low risk environment, however, we take the well-being of our patients and staff as our highest priority and it is always best to take sensible precautions during a time like this. Please note the following in regard to all patient appointments:

  • If you have any history of travel (or have come in contact with persons who have traveled) to countries where there has been a confirmed epidemic (China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Iran, Italy, Japan, and the US State of Washington), please call our office to reschedule your appointment.
  • We have implemented a “No Hand Shaking” policy at our practice during the outbreak to help limit casual contact and ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff. Please know that we appreciate you and are always happy to see you!
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness (cough, shortness of breath, fever above 100.4), we respectfully request that you reschedule your appointment at our practice until you are free from any symptoms for a period of at least 48 hours. We have asked our staff to do the same.

In addition to our already extensive level of cleaning and sterilization, we have supplemented these efforts with additional cleaning and sanitization of hard surfaces.

This is indeed a trying time in public health, but we also want you to know that we have some of the most stringent sanitization and infection control standards in any business, making our practice a safe place to visit. Should you have any questions about this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For up to date information on the virus, we would like to refer you to the government website for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, www.cdc.gov

Kindest Regards,
Dr. Sheena Kong and the Staff of Sheena Kong Medspa
