Poikiloderma

Poikiloderma sounds scary, but it’s just the technical name for mottled pigmentation most often affecting the neck and chest. This irregular pigmentation can be caused by damage done to the skin itself as well as the veins in the area. Long term sun exposure is believed to be the number one cause.

Poikiloderma can be treated with photorejuvenation performed by The Profile BBL Broadband Light from Sciton. It is typical to experience desired results from just 2-5 treatments, spaced 2-4 weeks apart.
