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 FAQs

What causes hyperpigmentation?

The term Hyperpigmentation (pigmentation) describes the darker spots on the skin. These spots appear to be the result of excess melanin production. This can be a result of sun damage, hormone fluctuations, or acne scars.

What are the 3 types of hyperpigmentation?

There are three main types of hyperpigmentation: melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), and age spots. Melasma is a form of pigmentation caused by hormonal changes, often seen in pregnant women or those taking birth control pills. PIH occurs after skin inflammation or injury, such as acne breakouts or cuts. Age spots, also known as sunspots or liver spots, are caused by prolonged exposure to the sun's UV rays.

Can skin pigmentation be removed?

Many types of pigmentation, such as age spots, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, can be treated. 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.

Does pigmentation go away?

It depends on the type of pigmentation and the treatment used. Some types, like age spots, can fade with proper skin care and sun protection. However, other types may require more intensive therapies or only partially disappear. It's essential to consult with a dermatologist to determine the best course of action for your specific pigmentation concerns. Keep in mind that even if pigmentation does fade or disappear, it may reappear over time without proper maintenance and care.

What is the best treatment for pigmentation?

The best treatment for pigmentation depends on the type and severity of the condition. Some common treatments include laser therapy, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and topical creams or serums containing ingredients like hydroquinone or retinoids. It's essential to consult with a dermatologist to determine the most effective treatment plan for your individual needs.

How does laser pigmentation removal 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 shatter the melanin in your skin into very minute particles, which the body then eliminates using its natural processes.

How do you get rid of pigmentation?

A popular option is laser therapy, which uses targeted light beams to break down the excess melanin in the skin. During the treatment, a specialised laser is directed at the area of pigmentation, delivering ultrashort pulses that shatter the melanin into tiny particles. The body's immune system then naturally eliminates these particles.

Does vitamin c help hyperpigmentation?

Yes, vitamin C can be effective in reducing hyperpigmentation. It acts as a powerful antioxidant that helps brighten skin tone by inhibiting melanin production. It can also help to fade existing pigmentation and protect the skin from further damage caused by UV exposure. Incorporating vitamin C into your skincare routine can benefit those looking to reduce the appearance of pigmentation on their skin. However, it is essential to note that results may vary, and consistent use is vital for optimal effectiveness. Consulting with a dermatologist is recommended to determine the best treatment for your specific skin concerns. Combining vitamin C with laser therapy or other treatments may also provide better results.

Do I need an initial consultation for Hyperpigmentation treatment?

Yes, before completing a complete 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 of using a laser on your skin to check for any adverse reactions. At Pulse Light Clinic, consultation and patch tests 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, knowing that this treatment can affect the results is essential.

How many treatments should I need for pigmentation removal?

This varies from person to person, depending on certain factors. It mostly depends on the depth of the lesion being treated, skin type, age of the lesion, and hormonal factors. To achieve optimum results, it can take as little as one treatment or up to several, typically with a 4-6 week interval.

What should I expect following the pigmentation treatment?

It is recommended that heat and exercise be avoided over the next few days. 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.

How long does pigmentation take to fade?

The length of time for pigmentation to fade varies depending on the individual and their specific treatment. In general, you can expect to see improvements within a few weeks, with complete fading taking several months. It is important to continue following any aftercare instructions given by your specialist to help speed up the fading process and maintain optimal results.

Factors such as sun exposure, hormonal changes, and skincare routine can also affect how quickly pigmentation fades. It is essential to wear sunscreen daily and avoid excessive sun exposure, as UV rays can cause further damage to the skin and prolong the fading process.
In some cases, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results. Your specialist will be able to assess your progress during follow-up appointments and make recommendations for additional treatments if needed.

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 to reveal lighter-looking skin.
