Laser Pigmentation Removal
Pigmented lesions such as sun spots, age spots, liver spots and port wine stains can be successfully removed creating a more flawless, youthful and glowing appearance.
How it works
Intense Pulse Light removes pigmented lesions with the energy light. Each pulse is designed to produce one or more specific light wavelengths which are absorbed by the abnormal concentrations of melanin. The rapid absorption of light energy causes the melanin to breakdown which is reabsorbed by the body leaving little or no trace of the original lesion.
Does It Hurt?
The laser/IPL fires short pulses of light which can feel warm against the skin surface. We use a powerful cooler to lower the skin surface temperature ensuring that most of our clients experience no more than mild discomfort. After initial consultation and at your discretion we will require you to do a test patch on the area to be treated, this is to check that the laser and your body will react in a positive way to the treatment – this will need to be carried out at least one week before the treatment starts. As long as there’s no adverse reaction after the test patch, then the pigmentation removal treatment can continue.
Am I Suitable For Treatment?
Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark skinned or tanned individuals. However, large, dark, mottled or raised pigmentation cannot be treated and may need to be checked by a dermatologist.
How Many Treatments Are Necessary?
The number of treatments will depend on the type and size of the pigmented lesion.
