Remove unwanted freckles, sun spots, sun damage and pigmentation effectively with our medical grade alexandrite laser, leaving you with an overall clearer and brighter complexion.
We can successfully treat pigmented lesions such as freckles, sun spots, aged spots etc with our alexandrite wavelength laser. This treatment is best suited for clients with a caucasian skin type and have darker pigmented lesions on the face and or body.
The laser is attracted to the pigment in the skin, absorbing and shattering the pigment during the treatment. The pigmented lesions instantly become slightly darker resulting in lifting up and off the surface of the skin and breaking away.
Results can be seen in as little as a week however best results will be a few weeks post treatment.
We generally suggest 3 sessions to effectively remove the pigmentation however it is very much on an individual case. Many clients find they may only need one treatment or two to achieve their desired outcome.
No, the treatment is not painful at all however mild discomfort may be felt with the heat from the laser. We also use our integrated cooling device to keep the treatment as close to pain free as possible.
Lesions will appear darker immediately post-treatment and redness and swelling will occur surrounding the lesion. Micro crusting will be present and is expected to exfoliate off naturally within 7-10 days for the face and up to 14 days for the body.
A consultation is mandatory prior to treatment to determine the skin's functioning and your goals. Laser pigment removal requires the skin to be prepped for a minimum of 2 weeks on a gentle cleanser, pigment inhibitor, hydrator and SPF. Post-treatment requires the application of a nonocclusive gel prescribed by your therapist.
