Laser Pigmentation Treatment

The stimulation of melanocytes in the skin leads to the development of pigmentation. Melonocytes are the cells that release melanin, which is the pigment you can see in your skin after being in the sun and a tan is developing. Different skin types are more prone to producing patches of pigmentation, and these can be stimulated by changes in hormones, trauma, and chemical alterations to the skin. Treatment methods for pigmentation patches will vary depending on the individual involved but they can include topical creams and IPL treatments. Often referred to as sun spots, age spots and liver spots, pigmented lesions are often a concern for people who are looking at clearing their complexion. These can be easily treated for those people who are committed to staying out of the sun and wearing sunblock. After professional diagnosis, pigmented lesions can be treated and maintained long term.

FAQ

Here are some common questions our patients ask during their consultation.

How does it work?

Laser rejuvenation utilizes an intense beam of light to deliver energy to your skin. The laser focuses on problem areas such as Redness, mottled complexion, sun damage, brown spots and freckles or can be used to treat a whole area.

It heats up the area to encourage new skin to grow. It works beneath your epidermis to stimulate collagen growth.

How long does the treatment last?

The procedure can last from a few minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the size of the area being treated.

What skin types respond best to this treatment?

Fair to olive skin types are best suited to this treatment. Patients should not be treated if they have had significant sun exposure (sun, solarium) or fake tan in the 4 weeks immediately prior to treatment.

What results can I expect from this treatment?

Immediately following treatment, brown spots will start to darken and skin may appear slightly red and mildly swollen. This resolves over the next few hours and makeup can be applied to cover the redness. Within 1 — 3 weeks the darkened spots will flake off and fade leaving a rejuvenated skin appearance. Any diffuse redness will decrease and your complexion will improve. New spots and redness may appear with ongoing sun damage, but these too can be prevented or treated. One to three IPL laser skin (resurfacing) treatments at our Melbourne skin centre are usually sufficient to see results. Additional treatments may be necessary for very large or dark spots, densely freckled areas or excessively sun-damaged skin.
