Laser Pigmentation Removal

Want to remove pigmentation?

Laser pigmentation removal

Pigmentation of the skin can be classed as lesions, sun spots/ age spots, freckles, venus lakes, and cherry angiomas. The good news is, all of these can be successfully treated with the Cynosure Elite ND machine.

For other hormonally triggered pigmentation such as melasma/chloasma or if general lightening from pigmentation is required it would be best treating with Mediderma skin peels.

How does the treatment work?

The Alexandrite laser emits a prescribed dose of energy onto the benign epidermal lesion. It uses the heat to effectively shatter the pigment molecules, which causes a fine crusting. This will remove over time and take the darkened lesion with it.

How does the treatment feel?

The treatment causes only minimal discomfort with no down time afterwards. The lesion will feel warm and appear darker. You will be able to resume normal activities immediately, although we do ask that you refrain from hot baths/showers and vigorous exercise for 24 hours, to aid the healing process.

Who is it for?

As everyone is different and will have individual requirements, you will be invited for a full and detailed free consultation prior to the start of a treatment, where your individual program will be discussed and explained thoroughly. During your consultation we also carry out a test patch and talk through the before and aftercare.

When can I be treated?

As long as no reaction occurs, treatment can begin from 24 hours after your test patch.

You will be given an information sheet which will contain all your pre and post care instructions for you.

What our clients say…

FAQ’s – Laser Pigmentation Removal, Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any special after care I need to be aware of?

Yes. Aftercare is essential and we will guide on your individual requirements. It allows us in the clinic to give you the best treatment available. Each treatment carries slightly different aftercare, and if you need products we can supply you with them too so no further shopping needed.

Can you treat a dark skin type?

Yes, we can accommodate a dark skin type. The Cynosure Elite model we use has two lasers so we can treat the correct skin type with the correct laser.

Can I go in the sun when I have had laser treatments?

Unfortunately not. The skin can hold onto heat and could cause a negative reaction. You will be fully informed about this within your consultation, and appointments can be arranged around holidays so any inconvenience is kept to a minimum

Is laser the same as IPL?

No they are two very separate things. Laser will penetrate deeper into the skin, but does it saftey. This means that is can target the base of the hair follicle and disrupt it enough so the hair growth cycle is effected. Laser will require less treatments so you get greater satisfaction. All aspects of the laser’s we work with are clinically proven. They are safe for all skin types, and we always use cold air which ensures your skin is the safest it can be.

I work full time, do you do later appointments?

Yes I have a late night on Thursday, and open on a Saturday.
