Laser Treatment For Skin Pigmentation & Hyperpigmentation

Skin pigmentation disorders affect the color and tone of the skin. In our body we have pigment called melanin which decides the color of our skin, hair and eyes. People with a darker skin tone will have more melanin in their skin cells than those with lighter skin, and if the skin cells become damaged or unhealthy, it will affect the melanin production, which in turn, will affect your skin.

Pigmentation problems include:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Freckles
  • Sun spots
  • Liver spots
  • Age spots

Hyperpigmentation can happen for many reasons: over exposure to the sun, genetics, hormonal changes, medical conditions or as a result of burns, and it can also become more obvious as we get older, causing liver and age spots and if it's left untreated, it can worsen. Some pigmentation disorders just affect certain patches of skin, and while these patches are not harmful, they can cause some distress.

Hyperpigmentation – If your body makes too much melanin, then parts of your skin may turn darker

Hypopigmentation – Too little melanin, or if the cells that produce pigment get damaged, then parts of your skin might turn lighter

Benefits of laser skin pigmentation treatment:

  • The procedure is safe – especially for the face, hands, neck and chest
  • There's no recovery time – so you can return to normal activities immediately
  • It's very effective – giving outstanding results every time

Advanced laser technology can help resolve skin pigmentation problems, resurfacing the top layers of the skin and causing sun damage and pigmentation to disappear, offering us a safe, effective and easy way to treat irregular pigmentation. Laser treatment works by damaging the top layers of the skin, forcing the collagen to kick in and start repairing the damage, so after a few weeks the skin will looker plumper and revitalized. The laser system resurfaces the skin and as the laser stimulates the collagen production, you'll see a continuous improvement in texture and smoothness of the skin over several months.

  • Treatment course – 2 treatments, each 4 weeks apart
  • Back to work – The next day
  • Anaesthetic – Local
  • Results – Permanent

Depending on the size of the affected area, the treatment sessions can take between 5 to 30 minutes. A single treatment session will get the desired result, but sometimes two treatments might be needed.

Most clients experience minimal discomfort, although some may experience a minor stinging sensation on the skin during the laser delivery, but a topical anaesthetic cream before the treatment starts will make it more comfortable. Afterwards, the skin on the treated areas will become darker, but this will flake off after a few days. You'll most likely be able to see an improvement in skin tone and texture as soon as the redness fades after the first treatment.
