Pigmentation is irregularities in the skin as a result of a decrease or abnormal production and deposition of melanin (pigment) by the melanocytes. We provide treatments for skin pigmentation, including superficial ones such as sunspots, age spots, freckles, and deep pigmentation like birthmarks and melasma.
Treatment for Superficial Pigmentation
Superficial pigmentations are epidermal lesions, such as age spots, sun spots, and freckles. These areas of the skin contain especially high concentrations of melanin and are typically due to an excess of pigment which is commonly caused by sun exposure, ageing, hormones or you may be born with the condition. The 532nm wavelength and Pulsed 570 laser treatments are effective and can show visible changes from the very first session. The technology uses focused light, which penetrates the epidermis, specifically targeting the skin cells that contain excess pigment, resulting in brighter and radiant skin.
Treatment for Deep Pigmentation
Deep pigmentations are generally dermal-epidermal and dermal lesions. These are often hyperpigmentations, which commonly appear as brown or shaded patches, such as melasma, cafe-au-lait macules (pigmented birthmarks), Nevus of Ota (hyperpigmentation around the eye region), and nevus of Ito (hyperpigmentation on the body). The deeper the pigment, the tougher it is to treat. For these types of deep pigmentations, we use the powerful and non-ablative 1064nm laser to target pigment cells. The specific wavelength is absorbed only by the cells containing excessive concentrations of pigment. This laser can minimise and eliminate the appearance of uneven skin tone, and will not affect the surrounding tissues or remove the normal skin colour.
Treat Pigmentation with Skin Resurfacing
The German-engineered Co2 Fractional Skin Resurfacing (FSR) is used for visible skin renewal. Using an efficient and dependable laser technology, it reduces age spots, blemishes, and blends uneven skin tone. This creates thousands of microscopic ablative thermal channels (perforations) in the skin’s surface that stimulate the body’s natural healing process. In addition to adressing pigmentation concerns, this treatment also helps reduce wrinkles whilst tightening the skin and repairs sun-damaged skin for a complete skin rejuvenation.
