Skin Pigmentation Treatment

What Is Skin Pigmentation Treatment?

Skin Conditions Treated:

  • Freckles
  • Sun Spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age spots (solar lentigines)
  • Flat pigmented birthmarks (congenital melanocytic naevi)

First of all, skin pigmentation marks are a build-up of melanocytes (cells containing melanin) under the skin typically referred to as freckles and age spots on the hands, face and body areas. Different types of laser can be used depending on the type of pigmentation. If pigmentation is in superficial lesions, then the Alexandrite 755nm Laser Skin Pigmentation Removal treatment is effective in removing pigmentation in as little as 1-3 treatments. The treatment will also depend on the area being treated, the type of pigmentation, and level of recovery time. Laser treatment is one of the most advanced treatments for removing unwanted pigmentation on the skin such as age spots, sun spots, and freckles.

In addition, skin pigmentation treatment with Alexandrite 755nm is a quick, gentle and non-invasive treatment. This specially designed laser is absorbed only by the cells containing excessive concentrations of pigment. It does not affect the surrounding tissues or remove the normal skin colour. The light pulses produced by the laser can feel similar to the flicking of a rubber elastic band and for most people is not too uncomfortable. Immediate darkening is noticed after treatment. For 7-10 days the area will look like a dark scab which eventually sheds off.

How Does The Skin Pigmentation Treatment Works?

The Alexandrite 755nm produces a wavelength of high energy light, which is then converted into heat energy. This can target the specific area of pigmentation because the laser is absorbed only by cells containing an excessive concentration of pigmentation. This causes efficient destruction while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged.

In conclusion, we invite you to book an appointment and get your pigments removed by our specialists!
