What is Laser and IPL for Pigmentation?

Skin pigmentation (the brown colour in the skin) can have a negative effect on how we see ourselves. Whatever your skin colour or type, many of us get patches on our face, hands or any part of the body, that are darker than the skin’s overall colour.

Whilst this common condition is harmless, it can be seen as unattractive and damaging to self-confidence. Fortunately, we can correct any pigmented spots or lesions you might have using laser treatment. Laser treatment for Skin Pigmentation Removal is one of the safest and most powerful treatments for when spots of darker or lighter skin become a concern.

Like most laser treatments, Skin Pigmentation Removal works by using specific wavelengths or colours of  light to deliver energy into the skin tissues. This energy is preferentially absorbed by the brown pigment, without damaging any of the surrounding skin, and the pigment gradually fades over a period of a few weeks. The pigment will often look initially darker directly after treatment, before it eventually fades.

Your Laser and IPL Skin Pigmentation Removal Experience 

Before Laser and IPL Skin Pigmentation Removal 

Before you book any treatment, we invite you to visit our medically led clinic in Sutton Coldfield, with easy transport links to surrounding areas such as Walsall, Lichfield, Tamworth and Birmingham. During your consultation our skin health professional will assess your skin using our professional 2D and 3D Visia Canfield Analysis system, which evaluates your skin to help us decide whether Laser and IPL Skin Pigmentation Removal is the most effective treatment approach to give you the best results.  Our expert will discuss with you what kind of results you would like to achieve, and will explain the whole treatment to ensure that you understand everything that is involved in helping you to remove unwanted pigmented spots.

During Laser and IPL Skin Pigmentation Removal 

During Laser Skin Pigmentation Removal you will be taken to our one of our purpose built treatment rooms. The treatment is a straightforward procedure, and the practitioner will use a small hand piece to touch your skin with flashes of light energy. The treatment is only a little uncomfortable, so you might feel a tingling or stinging sensation. We apply cooling gels and cold air to ensure that the treatment is as comfortable as possible.

Depending on the extent of the area being treated, each session can take from just a few minutes to half an hour.

After Laser and IPL Skin Pigmentation Removal

A great advantage of Laser Skin Pigmentation treatment is that you can usually return to work or continue your daily routine immediately after treatment. Whilst you might notice some results from just one treatment, we usually recommend a course of two to six treatments every two to three weeks, depending on the area being treated. Immediately after the procedure the skin may become pink and feel a little sore. This reaction usually disappears within a day or so.

Laser and IPL Skin Pigmentation Removal Side Effects 

It’s unlikely that you’ll experience any side effects with Laser Pigment Removal, aside from the usual pink colour and tenderness that we normally find immediately following the treatment. In rare cases, if the skin pigment absorbs too much light energy, mild blistering can occur that will slowly disappear.

Our practitioners have undergone extensive training and qualifications, so you can be confident that they understand how to use lasers safely and effectively (you would think that every clinic could promise the same. Unfortunately, lack of effective regulation means that many providers undergo no training at all).
