Pigment Clearing Laser

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 and inflammation along with 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 either require anaesthetic or, unlike traditional ablative laser resurfacing, burn the skin’s outer layer. As a result, redness and downtime are minimised

The areas that can treated include:

  • Full Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Hands

 

Indications for treatment include:

  • Broken veins
  • Hyper pigmentation
  • Freckles
  • Dark spot

We usually require between 3 – 6 treatments at 4 weekly intervals.  However results vary fro person to person and number of treatments required will depend on your own individual skin needs.

After treatment there can be some localised swelling in the area including the eye area and and this can often be worse in the mornings for the next few days.

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

  • Immediately after treatment there may be redness and swelling at the treatment area.
  • The application of a cool pack during the first few hours after treatment will reduce any discomfort
  • The application of aloe vera gel can continue at home
  • Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation or darker pigmentation. Sunscreen SPF 50 is a MUST
  • Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin any areas of pigmentation this may darken
  • Avoid hot baths, exercise and heat treatments and treat the skin gently, as if you had sunburn, for the first 24 hours
