Pigment Removal

Reduce Age Spots

Light treatments are extremely effective at removing pigmented lesions.

Pigmented lesions are localised excess melanin. Excess melanin can appear as:

  • Brown spots
  • Age spots
  • Liver spots
  • Freckles
  • Cafe au lait macules

These collections of excess melanin are most often found on the face, hands and decollete – areas that are commonly exposed to the sun. Sun damage is the leading cause of pigmented lesions.

Using Laser and IPL we are able to remove excess melanin within the skin.

Pigment removal after 1 session

How it works

Light energy emitted by laser and IPL is absorbed by the melanin in epidermal pigmented lesions; this causes the melanin to break up which is then expelled by the body.

Dermal pigmentation is better treated with Plasma.

A specific, tailored treatment will be arranged during your consultation.

Sun protection

Pigmented lesions may reappear over time, therefore it is important to use sunscreen to protect from further sun damage, preferably with 50 SPF.

Patient results and treatment experiences may vary.

1. Treatment information

Treatments can take as little as 15 minutes for single lesions or up to 40 minutes for multipule lesions.

Some lesions disappear from one treatment, whereas others may take up to 3 to get full clearance.

Treatments can be delivered every 4 weeks.

Seborrhoeic Keratosis usually takes 1 session

2. Downtime

The treatment is generally well tolerated, usually likened to a pinching or heating sensation.

Minor redness can last up to 48 hours.

Darkening of the lesions is expected until flaking of the melanin occurs. The lesion should not be removed, but allowed to flake off naturally.
