pigmentation removal

Problems of skin pigmentation affect people of all ages and skin types. Laser procedures are one of the methods of treating skin pigmentation concerns. Due to the variety of skin pigmentation concerns on different skin types, laser treatments need to be tailored. In general, one laser or one laser wavelength cannot treat all concerns.

Our advanced Pico-second laser, with 3 wavelengths and both picosecond and nanosecond wavelengths, has the ability to treat a large number of skin pigmentation concerns.

These features, alongside high pulse energy, make it an effective laser for tattoo removalskin pigmentation treatment, and skin rejuvenation.

What are the major causes for pigmentation


Pigmentation is caused by an excessive amount of melanin found in certain cells on the body’s skin. These cells usually carry a higher level of “melanocytes”, which produce the melanin that causes individual areas to become discoloured. Pigmentation can occur anywhere on the body, but usually appears on the hands or face. Contributors include: Genetics Some people are genetically predisposed to skin pigmentation. Sun damage Excessive unprotected exposure to the sun causes damage to the skin. This damage is characterised by freckles, sun spots and age spots. Birthmarks Birthmarks are areas of pigmented skin caused by an overgrowth of melanin-producing melanocytes. Birthmarks have no specific cause and can be categorised as a benign irregularity. Skin trauma Skin trauma or damage can cause areas of pigmentation to appear. Hormones Hormonal fluctuations, such as those experienced during pregnancy, can affect the skin quite significantly. General ageing The ageing process can often lead to age spots and general skin darkening.




how it works


Picoseond laser deliver ultra short pulse to the skin, use focus lens array technology to effectively convert the laser energy into gentle pressure waves, to break and shatter the pigmentation into smaller particles, the body’s immune system will then remove these pigments over time. Once drawn to the surface, the pigmented lesions will fade or dry and flake off the treated area, leaving the skin with an even tone and complexion. At the same time, these waves activate cell signaling and initiate an enhanced inflammatory healing response. This leads to increased collagen and elastin, which helps to work on pores, fine lines, and some additional luminosity. This technology is designed to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore youthful skin.




for skin pigmentation treatment


Having 3 different wavelengths provides a greater ability to marry the type and depth of pigmentation concern with an appropriate wavelength. Picosecond pulse durations have also added a new frontier to the treatment of skin pigmentation concerns. They may be particularly useful in the treatment of pigmentation problems on olive or darker skin types. Picosecond laser pulses are ultra-short and impart less heat energy onto the skin, and this, in turn, reduces the risk of heating or burning normal skin, whilst still being able to treat the problem pigmentation. Concerns such as melasma are particularly suited picosecond laser treatment.




for skin rejuventation treatment


The is also an effective treatment for skin rejuvenation. It is possible to use quite low settings on this laser to treat the skin and provide a brightening of the skin and improved skin quality. Usually, there is little or no downtime when the laser is used in this manner. An example would be the use of the 1064nm wavelength in picosecond mode, using a low fluence, large spot size, and high repetitions per second. The low fluence reduces the risk of the treatment. The 1064nm wavelength and large spot size is penetrates deeply into the skin, and is more uniform in its coverage of the face than smaller spot sizes. The face can also be quickly covered with high repetitions per second. This treatment only takes a few minutes, is not painful, has no downtime, and provides improvements in skin quality. Co2 resurfacing laser treatment can also be used to further increase the depth of penetration of the treatment and help to treat pigmentation and improve skin with less risk and downtime.





How Many Teatments do i need


Depending on the type of pigmentation being treated, clients will need between 2-6 treatments. The effectiveness of the treatment will be determined by the type, colour and depth of the pigmentation along with the condition of the skin. Please contact our clinic for a complimentary consultation to obtain a quoation.




how do i prepare for the treatment


-Do not wear any makeup on the day of treatment. -Excess hair may need to be shaved. Men should be cleanly shaved on the day of treatment. -No sun-tanning or self-tanners 4 weeks prior to pigment, vascular or hair removal treatment (this includes spray tans, tanning lotions, tanning beds, direct sun exposure, etc ). -Always wear 30+ sun protections prior to and during any course of laser treatment. -Avoid treatments that irritate the skin for 1-2 weeks prior to treatment (waxing, depilatories etc). -Muscle relaxants and filler need to be complete healed before the treatment can be performed. -Inform us with any changes to your health history or medications since your last appointment. -A history of cold sores may require an anti-viral prescription prior to treatment. Refrain from using any form of Vitamin A or retinols at least 5 days prior to your treatment.




Post-Treatment Care


-Avoid sun exposure and use broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen to prevent further sun damage. -Bruising, redness and swelling may occur and will resolve with time -Avoid heat – hot showers and tubs, saunas, sweating with exercise for 1-2 days -Avoid skin irritants (products containing tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl, peroxide, glycolic/salicylic acids, astringents) for a few days post treatment. -Avoid contact with chlorinated water for 24-48 hours. -Do NOT pick or exfoliate the scabbing or crusting skin as it may cause infection or further trauma. -Refrain from any other treatments to the treated area during the healing period. -Notify us immediately if you have any concerns (blistering, excessive redness/swelling).




for tattoo removal


Picosecond laser is effective for laser tattoo removal because; -It has 3 laser wavelengths to remove the majority of tattoo pigments. -It has high pulse energy and high power which allows the use of larger spot sizes which cause less scarring, and also allows sufficient energy to be provided during very short pulse durations. -The option of larger spot sizes up to 16mm -Both picosecond and nanosecond pulses to optimise pulse duration for tattoos at different stages of removal.
