Pigmentation

Laser for pigmentation

Lasers for pigmentation harnesses laser energy at specific wavelengths and depths, to target and treat specific pigmentary skin conditions due to sun exposure, aging, hormonal changes especially after pregnancy, genetics, or injury to the skin.

Treat specific pigmentary skin conditions due to sun exposure, aging, hormonal changes especially after pregnancy, genetics, or injury to the skin.

Targets
Melasma, freckles, Hori’s naevus, solar lentigines, post inflammatory pigmentation such as acne or burn marks, as well as unwanted tattooes.

Expectations
Depending on skin type and condition treated, the goal of treatment ranges from visible improvement to complete clearance. For example, melasma is usually visibly lightened and less prominent after 5 sessions of lasers, whereas freckles are usually completely cleared within 2-3 sessions. Diligent sun protection, and in certain cases adjunctive oral and topical treatments, are crucial to optimise results and to prevent recurrence.

HydraFacial

HydraFacial is a three-step facial that cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates skin with medical-grade serums. It uses patented vortex technology to remove skin impurities while boosting its hydration levels. It is a 30-minute facial that is suitable for all skin types.

Targets
Mild pigmentation, acne-prone skin, dry dehydrated skin, clogged pores.

Expectations
Individuals observe brighter and cleaner skin after the HydraFacial. Monthly sessions may result in clear and healthy skin. Acne breakouts are also greatly reduced.

IPL Photofacial

Intense Pulsed Light, commonly known as IPL, is a non-invasive treatment that emits multiple wavelengths of pulsed light to treat various skin conditions and unwanted hair. It effectively targets pigmentation lurking below the surface of the skin. The light energy is converted to heat energy and destroys the melanin producing cells, eventually dispersing pigmented areas.

Targets
Acne-prone and oily skin, pigmentation marks, dull and uneven skin tone.

Expectations

For optimal results, 3-5 sessions are typically recommended, about four weeks apart. Individuals notice an even skin tone and clear skin. The appearance of pigmentation and acne are reduced as well.

This treatment is suitable for most except individuals with dark skin tones or a tan. As light rays are attracted to pigment, it may discolour the skin.
