Pigmentation Removal

Pigmented lesions such as age spots or freckles can be successfully lightened or removed with Laser or Intense Pulsed Light. Birthmarks and other deeper, larger areas of pigmentation can be successfully treated with a Q-Switched Laser system. All of these treatments are non-invasive, suitable for both the face and body and will result in a more even skin tone.

How is the treatment carried out?
With Intense Pulsed Light treatments a layer of chilled gel is applied to the treatment area. The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short pulse of light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. The chilled gel is removed and the area cooled. During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments will depend on the type and size of the pigmented lesion but typically 1 to 3 sessions are required at 4 to 6 week intervals.
What can I expect after treatment?
The treated area may feel warm and sensitive for the first few days post treatment. With Intense Pulsed Light treatments the lesions will darken and may appear more obvious before they fade and flake away. With laser treatment an initial whitening of the area is seen which quickly fades and the pigment gradually fades over the following few weeks.
Are there any side effects?
The skin that surrounds the pigmented lesion may become red immediately after treatment. Most people experience no other side effects and the redness usually disappears within hours to a few days. Very rarely a small blister may form or the skin may become temporarily lighter or darker.
