IPL - Pigmentation Removal

Pigmented lesions also known as brown spots, sun spots, liver spots and age spots are a common skin concern and can vary in size and can occur on the face and body. Pigmented lesions can occur for a variety of reasons ranging from skin damage and sun exposure and creates a patchy discoloured look to the skin. Thankfully these can be removed or lightened with our IPL treatment, this will give your skin a more youthful even colour and tone. Normally 1-3 treatments are required for optimum results.

During the treatment a layer of cool gel is applied to the skin and the IPL is then pulsed over skin. This shatters the excess pigmentation making it appear darker immediately after the treatment, this will then form a thin crust over the treated area and will gradually flake off within a week leaving the area lighter or completely removing the excess pigmentation. This treatment can be used on single pigmented areas or be used on areas where there are multiple pigmented marks and sun damaged. If you are having multiple spots treated this will also reverse sun damaged skin by evening out the skin tone and texture.

For melasma/chloasma we recommend the Cosmelan® depigmentation.

Before Treatment

After Treatment

Your skin may be slightly red and the brown spots will appear darker after the treatment, a thin crust will form and flake away leaving the pigmentation looking lighter or disappeared.

When the pigmentation is darker it is important not to remove this or exfoliate the skin and to allow your skin to heal naturally.
