Pigmentation

Creating a More Flawless Appearance

Pigmented lesions such as freckles and age spots

These often appear on the skin as we get older. This is because our skin is less able to repair sun damage. Whilst age spots are not harmful, they can cause distress. Fortunately, we have a solution.

Pigmented lesions such as sun spots and freckles can be successfully removed creating a more flawless, youthful and glowing appearance.

We can treat a number of common pigmentation problems including:

Freckles | Sunspots | Age spots | Liver spots | Uneven skin tone

How the treatment works

Light is released in short pulses that are readily absorbed by the high concentrations of melanin found within the pigmented lesions. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells (melanocytes).

Am I suitable for treatment?

Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark skinned individuals. However, large, raised and dark pigmentation cannot be treated and may need to be assessed. Dark moles should not be treated nor would we advise IPL for melasma, this would be better suited to fractional laser.

What does treatment feel like?

Treatment is mildly uncomfortable and a warm, tingling sensation not unlike sunburn is experienced afterwards.

What will I look like after treatment?

The skin may be slightly red and the pigment marks will darken and may appear more obvious before they fade away.

Are there any side effects?

Most people experience little more than slight reddening and possibly mild swelling which usually disappear within hours to a couple of days. Very rarely a small blister may form or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin can occur.

Consultation Procedure

Prior to treatment, you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a patch test 7 days prior to treatment.
