Pigmentation Removal

Hyperpigmentation Reduction

Sun spots, liver spots, freckles and other unwanted hyperpigmentation are often associated with skin ageing and over exposure to the sun or sunbeds. From the age of about 40 the skin is less able to regenerate from sun exposure and age spots start to appear. Generally these age spots pose no health risk, however they can be unsightly and create a patchy, less youthful appearance. Freckling and age spots are successfully lightened or removed with Laser or Intense Pulse Light.

Not all pigmentation concerns are as a result of sun exposure and some people are born with pigmented birthmarks or may have melasma, a skin pigmentation condition often associated with pregnancy or hormones. Birthmarks can often be treated with a Q-Switch Laser.

IPL or Intense Pulse Light skin rejuvenation and pigment removal treatment is a relatively quick and easy procedure. Age spots and freckles can be lightened or removed in as little as one to three treatment sessions. The light targets areas of excess pigment safely breaking down the excess melanin. The sun spots or freckles darken in the first few days after treatment and then the excess melanin sheds naturally away.

IPL pigment removal treatment

Selective Photothermolysis: IPL works on the principle of selective photothermolysis. The broad-spectrum light emitted by the IPL device targets pigmented cells in the skin without affecting the surrounding tissue. This is achieved by choosing the appropriate wavelength range that corresponds to the targeted pigments.

Pigment Absorption: The melanin in pigmented lesions, such as sunspots, age spots, freckles, and certain types of hyperpigmentation, absorbs the light energy delivered by the IPL device.

Heat Generation: As the pigmented cells absorb the light, the energy is converted into heat. This heat causes the targeted cells to break down and be gradually eliminated by the body’s natural processes.

Collagen Stimulation: In addition to targeting pigmentation, IPL can stimulate collagen production, contributing to improved skin texture and a more even tone.

Multiple Sessions: IPL pigment removal treatment usually involves a series of sessions to achieve optimal results. The number of sessions depends on the type and severity of the pigmentation and individual skin response.

Downtime and Side Effects: IPL is a non-invasive procedure, and downtime is generally minimal. Some redness or mild swelling may occur immediately after the treatment, but this usually resolves within a short period. It’s essential to follow post-treatment care instructions, including sun protection.

Suitability and Consultation: Book a consultation with our experienced practitioner. We can assess your skin type, the specific pigmentation concerns, and determine if IPL is the right treatment for you. We can also discuss expected results, potential risks, and provide personalized advice.

Deep Pigmentation Removal Treatment

Deeper pigmentation treatment is possible using the latest Studio Q-Switch Laser to remove unwanted marks and blemishes such as sunspots, age spots, and brown birthmarks. These can be targeted to create a more
flawless, youthful and glowing complexion. This amazing laser by Deka reaches the deeper layers of your skin.

Q-SWITCH ND:YAG LASER                     

The Q-Switch Laser is a highly advanced medical and aesthetic procedure. It works by producing short pulses of high-intensity light that are absorbed by the targeted tissue. Short pulses of light are released and are readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within pigmented lesions.
The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes the destruction of the melanin-rich cells. This triggers the body’s natural healing process to stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin tissue.

How it works

  • The Nd:YAG Laser emits light at specific wavelengths.
  • The Laser beam is then focused by a lens, then directed onto the targeted tissue.
  • The energy targeted to the tissue causes it to heat up and break down.
  • Releasing pigments that are then removed by the body’s natural processes.

Common Questions about Pigmentation Treatment

How does Intense Pulse Light Work?

The Intense Pulse Light System releases 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 eradicates the melanin-rich cells.

Am I suitable for pigmentation Removal?

Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark skinned or tanned individuals. However, large, raised and dark pigmentation cannot be treated and may need to be assessed by our Medical Advisor. Dark moles should not be treated nor would we advise IPL for melasma, this would be better suited to fractional laser.

What does treatment feel like?

Treatment is mildly uncomfortable and a warm, tingling sensation not unlike sunburn is experienced afterwards.

What will I look like after treatment?

The skin may be slightly red and the pigment marks will darken and may appear more obvious before they fade away.

Are there any side effects?

Most people experience little more than slight reddening and possibly mild swelling which usually disappear within hours to a couple of days. Very rarely a small blister may form or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin can occur.

Why choose The Laser Clinic?

The Laser Clinic has high caliber equipment to complete the task. More importantly we really understand how laser light works and interacts with the skin. Our Lumina system is from Lynton Lasers who have been manufacturing lasers and IPL’s for over 15 years and their knowledge and expertise is passed onto us.

I found Susan over a year ago, looking for a way to slow down the aging process. I turn 40 this year and started... looking after my skin too late. Now I come and see Susan for regular treatments of the radiofrequency micro needling on my face and neck. I love this treatment, because it feels a more natural process, causing my skin to produce its own collagen after the treatment as it heals. The downtime is nothing, my face is a little red that day but the next day I am back to normal so no one knows I have had it done. I love the feel of the treatment when I am having it done, I love the look of my skin now it is being maintained by Susan and I just feel better knowing I am doing something good for my skin. I have got rid of all the fancy moisturisers and I just use one moisturiser that agrees with my skin and a sun screen and I invest the rest of my money in this treatment, because it starts from the deeper inside layers of my skin. I wish I had started this in my twenties. Susan is so lovely as well, I trust my face with her completely.read more

I’d highly recommend The Laser Clinic to anyone and will be returning for top ups and other treatments in the future.read more

I had laser treatment on some red prominent veins on my nose and hair removal on my chin ( I've had a fear of being in an accident and waking up with a beard 😂, so decided to deal with it in a more permanent way) I would definitely give 5* rating and highly recommended The Laser Clinic Morpethread more

Susan made me feel at ease from the start and answered any questions I had, she couldn’t have been nicer. The clinic is in a lovely, quiet, discreet location which is great as my face as expected was a bit red after the treatment, I would have hated to have to walk through town. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Laser Clinic, definitely 5 stars.read more
