Pigmentation Treatments

Pigmentation is caused by many factors such as excessive exposure to the sun, hormonal factors, environmental to name a but a few. Pigmentation most commonly occurs on the face, chest, back, arms and hands largely because these areas are exposed to more sun. Age spots, liver spots, and freckles are all forms of pigments lesions that are caused by the excessive production of melanin in the skin.

When Do We Recommend Laser Treatment for Pigmentation?

Any area of your face or body where hyper pigmentation is present can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. The most popular treatment areas are the face, neck, back of the hands, décolleté, chest and shoulders. Pigmentation laser treatment works wonders for age spots and hyperpigmentation from the sun. It also treats freckles, so-called café au lait maculae, brown spots, birthmarks, enlarged pores, small facial veins, rosacea, redness, and flushing.

Pigment is controlled by the amount of melanin produced in the body. Dark-complexioned people have more melanin, while fair-skinned individuals have less. Where isolated areas of skin develop dark spots, this is classified as hyperpigmentation.

This condition is a result of an overproduction of melanin and is caused by various factors, most notably sun exposure, age, hormonal variations, or genetic factors as well as skin infections or inflammation. It can be treated and improved with the use of specialised lasers.

How Does It Work?

Pigmentation Laser Treatment delivers the light energy that will gently heat up the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen. This will help restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colours and making it smoother, more vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photo- thermal energy will target and eliminate many of the fine subcutaneous blood vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.

The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen. This will help restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colours and making it smoother, more vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photo-thermal energy will target and eliminate many of the fine subcutaneous blood vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions. Read More

Micro Laser Peels

A Micro Laser Peel is a gentle, laser assisted skin peel, which precisely removes the skin’s outermost layer to a predetermined depth. It is the perfect step between Microdermabrasion and deeper peels for treating pigmentation, sun damage and Melasma. Typically two to four treatments are required spaced at intervals over eight weeks, depending on the extent of treatment required. Healing will take 3-4 days, as the damaged skin layers slough off, allowing fresh new skin cells to grow. Read More

Laser Resurfacing

The Sciton™ CONTOUR™ system emits short pulses of high energy light, which gets absorbed by the water and chromophores in the skin. The light becomes heat, and that heat removes thin layers of your skin’s surface, which will be replaced by younger skin growth. Only the Sciton™ CONTOUR™ has the ability to provide a treatment that is optimised to your skin condition. Pigmented lesions will greatly improve and the treatment also softens and diminishes wrinkles. Read More

Fractional Laser Treatment

Fractional, non-ablative laser the treatment of surgical scars, acne scars and stretch marks – the only FDA cleared laser for this treatment.

The damaged areas stimulate the body’s natural healing process, and promote production of new collagen and fresh skin cells, greatly improving uneven pigmented areas, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities. It is more comfortable than other similar treatments, and allows for faster healing. Read More

Medium Skin Peels

The peeling treatment renews the skin by lifting dead cells off the skin surface and stimulating the metabolism of the cells underneath.

It utilizes a combination of Trichloracetic acid (TCA) and Jessner’s solution (14% resorcinol, 14% lactic and 14% salicylic acid in an alcohol base). A series of medium-depth peels can effectively improve the appearance of uneven pigmentation, and superficial lines while leaving skin softer, smoother and more radiant. These peels have been widely used for over 25 years and found extremely effective at correcting pigmentary and photo aging problems. Read More

Deep Skin Peels

Penetrating several layers of skin, using a solution called Phenol, this treatment is extremely effective for regeneration of the skin structure. It provides a total rejuvenation effect, which can help you to look up to ten years younger.

The procedure helps to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, and it normally takes about 10-14 days to recover from the treatment. You will have to follow the instructions provided by our skin care specialist carefully. This treatment is generally not suitable for people with darker skin tones. Read More
