What causes pigmentation issues?
Dark spots, redness and uneven skin tone can emerge for a wide variety of reasons, including:
As aging occurs, brown patches called “age spots” can begin to appear throughout the face and body. When this occurs, these imperfections can affect confidence and add years to your appearance.
For many individuals, sunspots and pigmentation issues often emerge after long-term exposure to the sun’s harmful rays.
Conditions like acne and rosacea can have a negative effect on your skin’s health, contributing to a red and blotchy facial appearance.
Chemicals, smoking, pollution and other elements in the environment can also lead to pigmentation issues, causing your skin to appear blotchy and damaged.

Hi! My name is Jane. I am the Lead Medical Aesthetician at Scarpidis Aesthetics.
Feel free to ask me any questions, I'll be happy to help!
The facial vessel and pigment clearance procedure
Dr. Scarpidis will treat your pigmentation and facial vessel issues in the comfort of his private New York office, using the innovative Icon Aesthetic System. To begin the 30-minute procedure, Dr. Scarpidis will apply a numbing cream to your skin and provide you with specialized eyewear to protect you during treatment.
He will then administer powerful light-based technology by moving the Icon handpiece over your skin, treating the pigment and vessels, without damaging the healthy surrounding tissue. During this time, you’ll experience a cooling sensation along with a slight stinging feeling. As the handpiece continues to move across your skin, the light energy will be absorbed by the unwanted pigment, which will be naturally eliminated from your body. After several New York pigmentation treatment sessions, the pigment will be visibly improved, your spots will appear lighter and your skin will look clearer and more youthful.
The vast majority of our patients report that they only experience very minor discomfort during facial vessel and pigment clearance with Dr. Scarpidis. However, if you’re concerned about your comfort, we will provide you with solutions that can help you manage the pain. As this procedure is completely non-invasive with no downtime, you’ll be able to resume your normal daily routine immediately after treatment. At that time, the targeted pigment will temporarily appear slightly darker than normal and you will feel a warm sensation in the treatment area. Over the next few weeks, your brown spots will continue to darken before ultimately flaking off. Your facial vessels will look better right away, with continued improvement over the next several days.
