Laser Skin Treatments
Pigmentation/Skin Correction/Anti-Ageing Treatments
How does it work?
Using a specific treatment head on our SHR Laser machine, we can successfully treat pigmentation/brown marks, without disturbing the surrounding skin tissue, so that your skin tone will be more even following treatments. The light is set at specific wavelengths to target the brown discolouration. The light is absorbed only by the brown marks, which results in the gradual fading and breakdown of the melanin structures.
Are there any side effects?
The pigmented areas can become darker following the treatment because of the amount of light they have absorbed. Eventually they will begin to break down and the pigment will disperse. We always apply a high factor sunscreen following treatment, and recommend that an SPF is worn every day. We work with specific skin products that will help in the reduction and prevention of brown marks and pigmentation. Avoiding prolonged periods of sun exposure will also ensure that the treatment is successful.
How many treatments are needed?
3-6 treatments, repeated at 2-3 week intervals for best results.
