Skin Treatments Before & Afters
Laser Skin Pigmentation Removal
If you are finding yourself not happy with the condition of your skin, then it may be affecting how you feel about yourself, your choice of clothes, your confidence and many other aspects of your life.
If you have found that skin pigmentation has built up and you want to get rid of these marks or lesions for good, then the PicoSure / PicoWay Resolve, LaseMD, Candela Gentle Max Pro Lasers & Dermapen is perfect. It can tackle and eradicate those skin pigmentations in a fast and effective way.
Skin pigmentation refers to darker patches on your skin. Special cells called melanocytes generate colour using melanin; this is what gives skin colour. People with albinism have almost none, very dark-skinned people have a lot, and there are all of the variations in between.
If these cells become unhealthy or damaged, it can affect melanin production. This can affect your whole body or just little parts of your skin.
Certain factors which can cause skin pigmentation or pigmented lesions to manifest are injuries, burns, infections, inflammation, drugs, hormones and sunlight. Skin pigmentation is manifest in various ways, such as freckles, age spots, sun spots, liver spots, and Melasma.
None of these conditions is dangerous or contagious, but they can be unsightly and, from an aesthetic medicinal point of view, something that can be tackled to help you improve your confidence and appearance.
Laser skin pigmentation removal works by firing ultrashort (picosecond – one trillionth of a second) pulses into the pigmented area. These pulses actually shatter the melanin in these lesions into very minute particles, which the body then eliminates using its natural processes. Thereby diminishing or eradicating these pigmented lesions for good.
Laser skin pigmentation removal is suitable for:
Age Spots, Sunspots, Liver spots, Freckles, Melasma
Obagi Medical Treatment
In some cases, darker skin types are not suitable for laser treatments. At Pulse Light Clinic, we provide an alternative method for those skin tones. During the consultation, we will assess the condition and the skin type, and our doctor will decide if the client is suitable for 4% hydroquinone. It is only with a doctor’s prescription and aids to correct hyperpigmentation, like dark spots, sun spots, age spots, melasma, and various discolouration types. Obagi provides a healthier-looking, more balanced skin colour.
* Results vary from person to person
Skin Pigmentation Frequently Asked Questions
What creates pigmentation of the skin?
The term Hyperpigmentation (pigmentation) is to describe the darker spots on the skin. These spots appear of excess production of melanin. This can be a result of sun damage to hormone fluctuations, to acne scars.
Can skin pigmentation be removed?
Many types of pigmentation can be treated, such as age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Pigmentation is not a dangerous skin condition, and people can treat it by practising removal techniques such as laser treatments or, in some cases, prescribed creams.
How does skin Pigmentation treatment with lasers work?
During your treatment the laser light is targeted at the area of unwanted pigmentation. The laser then fires in ultrashort (picosecond – one trillionth of a second) pulses. These pulses actually shatter the melanin in your skin into very minute particles which the body then eliminates using its natural processes.
Do I need an initial consultation for Hyperpigmentation treatment?
Yes, before engaging in a full treatment you should always have a consultation and patch test. The consultation is vital for you to share any medical data that could be a factor in your treatment and get any questions you have answered. The patch test, is a small trial use of the laser on your skin to check for any adverse reactions. Here at Pulse Light Clinic both the consultation and patch test are offered free of charge.
Is Pigmentation removal painful?
Laser pigmentation removal is quite a hot treatment and therefore many clients use numbing cream which you can buy from a pharmacy and apply before the treatment. However it is important to know for this particular treatment in can effect the results.
How many treatments should I need for pigmentation removal ?
This varies from person to person depending on certain factors. Mostly it depends on depth of the lesion being treated, skin type, age of the lesion and hormonal factors. It can be as little as one treatment or up to several to achieve optimum results. Typically with a 4-6 week interval.
What should I expect following the pigmentation treatment?
It is recommended that over the next few days that heat is avoided as well as exercise. The area should not have any friction for several weeks, post treatment. Therefore do not scrub or exfoliate the area. If you notice any darker skin peeling/falling off in the area treated, don’t worry it is a good thing as the old affected skin is being removed.
Are there any Pigmentation removal side effects with laser treatment?
Immediately following the treatment you may have some redness and swelling for 24- 48 hours but this will rapidly diminish. Certain patients may experience a temporary darker discolouration around the treated area but this will typically resolve over the next few weeks back to reveal lighter looking skin.
