We offer several Pigment Removal treatments including:
Lesions that are not suitable for treatment include:
IPL systems release short pulses of 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 causes the destruction of the melanin rich cells.
Treatments are suitable for most people, however, best results are obtained with fair skin. Treatments cannot be carried out if you have a suntan or have used fake tan within 4 weeks of your appointment.
Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation to obtain your medical history and determine suitability; if you are suitable for treatment you will then be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch. Your Technician will then advise you when you can commence your treatments.
The number of treatments will depend on the type and size of the lesion but typically 1 to 3 sessions are required at 4 to 6 week intervals. As with most treatments all cases are based on the individual.
Your Technician will also answer any questions you may have about your treatment during your consultation.
