LASER PIGMENT REMOVAL

Through a series of laser treatments, we can help reduce the appearance of dark patches of pigmentation and create a more even skin tone.

Known as hyperpigmentation or skin pigmentation, dark patches on your face and body can really bother some people.

They occur largely as a result of sun damage, which is why daily use of sunscreen is so important to avoid them getting worse or more appearing.

UV rays from the skin trigger the production of melanin, which is why we tan. If you have too much sun exposure, then it can lead to excessive production of melanin known as hyperpigmentation.
People often describe dark patches as ‘sun spots’ or ‘age spots’, and they generally appear on areas most exposed to the sun such as the face, neck, décolletage and hands.

To treat pigmentation we use a gold standard Alexandrite laser, which produces a wavelength of high energy light.  

The pigment absorbs this light energy, which is then converted to heat. The sudden increase in temperatures causes the pigment to shatter, without damaging surrounding skin.  

Your body’s immune system will remove the shattered pigment, leaving you with a more even and refreshed skin tone.  

The Alexandrite laser is not advised in darker skin types. Book a consultation so we can assess your concerns and find the best approach for you.
