Laser Pigmentation Removal
Remove unwanted sun spots.
Our Cutera reduces the appearance of pigmentation as the laser is attracted to the pigment within the skin.
The pigmentation in the skin absorbs the light which is then converted to heat which works to shatter the pigment. Once treated, the pigmentation spots will instantly darken and the pigment will be drawn to the surface where it then fades or flakes off the surface of the skin.
1-4 treatments is required for best results. We recommend pairing this treatment with medical microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Correct home-care products are required to protect and prevent the recurrence of pigmentation.
This treatment is best performed in winter as sun exposure has to be avoided for a full two weeks before and after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS PIGMENTATION REMOVAL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, this treatment harnesses the power of light transfering into heat energy to lift pigmentation out of the skin, as well as and targeting redness and capillaries and stimulating collagen.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The light looks for something to be absorbed into. Capillaries and redness require a green light that will absorb into anything red, the light transfers into heat energy when it finds its target in the skin (capillaries or redness). This then selectively heats up the capillaries, then the body’s natural mechanisms clean up the capillary.
With pigmentation, a yellow light is used that transfers into heat when it finds pigmentation in the skin. This lifts the pigment to the surface of the skin so that it gradually fades away over 4-7 days
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
Our patented treatment head has refrigerated contact cooling to keep the epidermis cool. The skin is mildly red after the treatment, but will look lifted, brighter and fresher as the bodies natural response begins healing the skin to produce collagen.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
A series of 7 sessions is recommended for best results, spacing the treatments out every 3 weeks. We recommend combining the treatment with skin needling or microdermabrasion for best results.
WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE PRE AND POST TREATMENT?
We always recommend the daily use of SPF 30 sunscreen to prevent the skin becoming sun damaged. Please apply at least once every two hours when out in the sun to prevent post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation
WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY TREATMENT?
We commence your treatment with a double cleanse and exfoliation. We then apply a cold ultrasound gel to the skin, the treatment head glided over the treatment area targeting your skin concerns . The gel is then wiped off and we finish with hydrating serums with highly active ingredients and a SPF30+ sunscreen.
