Sun spots, freckles, age spots, and skin hyper pigmentation, occur when melanin, the pigment that gives skin its colour, collects in one area. There are numerous factors that affect the colour in the skin including; UV, hormones, stress, inflammation and general ageing of the skin.
The Harmony XL Pro Dye-VL pigment clearing laser specifically targets the excess melanin under the surface of the skin. As the melanin absorbs the energy, the pigmentation is cleared so that you’re left with an even, glowing skin tone.
The laser also boosts the skin’s natural healing process while improving collagen production with fast, long-lasting results. It only takes 3-4 sessions, approximately a month apart, to achieve flawless results.

Pigment clearing light-based laser and IPL treatments remove the appearance of spots and skin hyperpigmentation by targeting the melanin in the darkened area and dispersing it. The tiny fragments of the pigment are then cleared by the lymphatic system through a natural process. This results in the clearing of all of the pigmentation layers which in turn reveals even-toned, unblemished skin.
Prior to any laser treatment a consultation and patch test will need to be carried out to ensure suitability of treatment.
On the day of treatment no numbing or anaesthetic is required so your laser specialist will sterilise the area and apply a cooling gel. The laser will then be moved over the skin targeting all areas of redness.
This powerful and effective laser takes just 30 minutes and does not require anaesthetic. Unlike traditional ablative laser resurfacing, it does not burn the skin’s outer layer. As a result, redness and downtime are minimised.
The areas that can treated include:

Dark spots and hyper pigmentation will get darker initially for up to 7 days and then they will lighten up or vanish altogether.
