Laser Pigmentation Removal

Stubborn pigmentation has stood between many clients and their desire for a radiant, even complexion. Our Pigment Correcting Laser perfects skin tone and texture, anywhere on the face and body with minimal downtime.

Ageing, sun exposure and environmental factors can all come together to create freckles, age spots and discoloured patches which no amount of concealer will hide.

This skin pigmentation treatment is quick, painless, safe and can help you to improve the look of discoloured skin.

How does Laser  Pigmentation Removal work ?

Freckles, age spots and other minor blemishes are caused by melanin, a substance which gives our skin its colour. When melanin gathers in one spot, it appears as a discoloured area.  The wavelengths of light produced by laser technology are designed to be absorbed by these pigmented areas; the powerful light then “shatters” the pigment, causing it to be dispersed by the body’s lymphatic system. The spots will gradually disappear.

Our latest generation laser is a new age technology that remove all unwanted skin discolouration. For brown age spots, freckles and other brown birthmarks, three treatments are recommended to accomplish the mission. Our laser pigmentation removal treatment is non-invasive and has no side effects. The spots removed by laser usually do not recur and but new hyper-pigmentation may form due to sun exposure or other factors.

Other skin hyper-pigmentation conditions such as melasma are more complicated and require more treatments. A course of 6 to 10 sessions will be needed  to significantly reduce the appearance. Melasma can often comeback; you need to maintain results with homecare products and laser procedures.

After completion of the recommended sessions of laser pigmentation treatment, your skin will be rejuvenated, appearing brighter, cleaner, and smoother.

STEP 1 – CONSULTATION:
You will meet with one of our practitioners for an in depth discussion about your pigmentation. Your skin will be examined and you will be given an opportunity to ask questions and to discuss your medical history. A patch test involves applying the laser to a small area of your skin in order to ascertain you are suitable for the treatment and to check that no adverse reactions are apparent.

STEP 2 – PROCEDURE:
Your first appointment will be booked for a later date after your consultation. Before the procedure you will be given protective eyewear and prepared for treatment. Laser pigmentation removal is not painful for the vast majority of people; some report a minor prickling or tingling sensation but this is only whilst the laser is in action.

STEP 3 – AFTERCARE:
When your treatment is complete you will be advised to avoid direct sun exposure on the area which has been treated. You will also be advised to avoid strenuous exercise and hot environments for at least 24 hours. This is due to the effect which heat can have on capillaries. Your technician may suggest using Aloe Vera or an ice-pack on the area that has been treated to calm down any redness.
