Laser Treatment for Pigmentation

What type of pigmentation can be treated?

 

We can very successfully treat age spots, sun spots and freckles.

 

What skin types can be treated?

 

Skin Types I-IV can be treated using the Alexandrite laser. Please see skin type guide for more details on which skin type you come under.

 

How many treatments are needed?

 

In many cases we only need one ttreatment to treat these types of pigments but can sometimes take up to 3 treatments

 

What to expect after the treatment?

 

The pigemnt lesion will darken immdeiately after the laser treatment which indicates that the treatment has been successful. It is important to keep the area hydrated and protected from sun exposure by using a sun block. the pigment will eventually crust and exfoliate. The pigmentation will come away with the crust over a period of 2-3 weeks. It is very important not to pick or scratch the crust as this could lead to scarring.
