Pigmentation

We use a medical grade laser which is safe and effective to perform the treatment and are experienced in the reduction of superficial pigmentation delivering fantastic results.

How it Works?


Laser Pigmentation Removal works to safely and effectively reduce the appearance of freckles, pigmentation, and post-trauma pigmentation including acne scars and age spots. The laser targets only the pigmented lesion in the skin which absorbs the light, without damaging the surrounding skin. The laser heats up and shatters the pigment. The pigment is then drawn to the surface without harming the surrounding tissue.

Once drawn to the surface, the pigmented lesions will fade or dry and flake off the treated area, leaving the skin with an even tone and complexion.

FAQ


Each procedure is different – our less invasive treatments (such as Green Peel and superficial Cosmedical Grade Peels) give more immediate results, and our more invasive treatments (such as deeper Cosmedical Grade Peels) may take up to a month to see full results. These treatments, however, have more lasting impacts than our less invasive treatments. At your complimentary skin consultation, your Skin Therapist will advise on a personalised treatment plan.
