Pigmented lesions such as age
spots or freckles can be successfully
lightened or removed with Laser or
Intense Pulsed Light. Birthmarks
and other deeper, larger areas of
pigmentation can be successfully
treated with a Q-Switched Laser
system. All of these treatments are
non-invasive, suitable for both the
face and body and will result in a
more even skin tone.

How do Intense Pulsed Light and Lasers
work?

Intense Pulsed Light systems release short
pulses of filtered light that is readily absorbed
by the high concentration of melanin found
within freckles, sun spots or liver spots. The
rapid absorption of light energy heats the
melanin and causes the destruction of the
melanin-rich cells.
.

How is the treatment carried out?

 

With Intense Pulsed Light treatments a layer
of chilled gel is applied to the treatment area.
The light applicator is placed on the skin
and a short pulse of light is released. The
applicator is then moved to the neighbouring
area and the process is repeated until the
entire area is treated. The chilled gel is
removed and the area cooled. No gel is
required for the Q-Switched Laser treatments,
however, due to the power of the Laser
energy delivered into the skin, a small amount
of pin point bleeding may occur during the
treatment, and a dressing may be applied
after the treatment to protect the skin while it
heals. During treatment protective eye wear
will be provided.

How many treatments are necessary?

 

The number of treatments will depend on
the type and size of the pigmented lesion but
typically 1 to 3 sessions are required at 4 to 6
week intervals.
