Pigment Removal

Laser Pigmentation Removal

Pigmented lesions found on the body and face can develop as a result of a number of reasons: sun exposure, ageing, skin damage, hormones and pregnancy.

Pigmentation due to sun damage

At Fade Lasers, we would say the most common cause of pigmentation in our patients is due to sun damage. We will all, at some point in our lives, have been exposed to the sun for long periods of time. Over the course of an adult’s lifetime, the damage caused to your skin through UV ray exposure is unimaginable.

Your skin cells are a living record of every second overspent in the sunshine, and although each skin type will react differently, the majority of us will show visible effects of sun damage in our skin. This damage is often visible as freckles, discoloured areas of the skin, and sunspots. The areas most commonly affected are the chest, hands and face.

Pigment Removal At Fade Lasers

Your skin has a lot to deal with on a daily basis, more than you probably realise! Coupled with the effects of premature ageing, your skin is constantly under attack from the elements, particularly sun exposure. Without the proper daily protection, you leave your skin vulnerable to sun spots, freckling, discolouration and hyperpigmentation, not to mention premature ageing and the risk of skin cancer in extreme cases. Visible changes occur in your skin as a result of direct damage from UV rays within sunlight, which can sometimes be rather unsightly and difficult to live with. That’s where we come in here at Fade Lasers.

Pigmentation Removal With The Picosure Laser

Based in Dunbar in East Lothian, we are lucky to be one of the few clinics in the UK to possess the innovative PicoSure Laser, a leader among advanced cosmetic lasers. Unlike other treatment options for skin rejuvenation, such as microdermabrasion and chemical skin peels, PicoSure laser treatments are powerful and fast, with noticeable results after just one treatment session.

In general, a course of 3 treatments is usually ideal so as achieve optimum results, with the possibility of a follow-up maintenance treatment every so often. The PicoSure Laser works using light-based technology that delivers optimum wavelengths of light energy to the melanin in the skin in order to gradually lighten the appearance of the lesion. This happens as the cells shed due to mild skin peeling. The process effectively treats freckles, age spots, café au lait spots, solar lentigines and some birthmarks.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Does Laser Treatment Work?

Pigmentation Removal – Pulses of light energy are absorbed by the melanin in your skin cells, causing them to scatter and break down without damaging the surrounding tissues. Your immune or lymphatic system is then capable of removing these dead cells from your skin.

Tattoo Removal –  Patented PressureWave laser technology delivers an impact that shatters the tattoo particles so that they are easily disposed of by your body.

Are There Any Side Effects To Laser Treatment?

Discomfort is minimal, with little risk of side effects, due to the gentle nature of mild laser treatments.

Is There Any Recovery Time Involved?

Immediately after your treatments, you are free to resume your routine as you normally would. No downtime is required, though we do recommend light maintenance in some cases, such as sunscreen application.

Am I Suitable For Laser Treatment?

By booking a consultation at Fade Lasers, we can properly assess your wants and needs to see if you would benefit from laser treatments. However, our PicoSure laser is suitable for treating benign pigmented lesions and tattoos of all colours on most areas of the body.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Whether you’re looking to treat skin pigmentation or remove a tattoo mistake, you will begin to see results immediately after your first session. The amount of sessions you’ll require following this depends on factors such as the depth and size of the treatment area, making it hard to give an exact figure without a full consultation.

How Does Laser Treatment Differ From Other Treatment Options?

Our laser treatment techniques differ in the way that they penetrate the skin to target the source of the problem, without damaging the surface of the skin. This means a significant reduction in discomfort and downtime.

Is Laser Treatment Painful?

PicoSure laser treatment is mild and gentle, resulting in minimal discomfort in comparison to other cosmetic lasers on the market.

Are Black Tattoos Harder To Remove With Laser Tattoo Removal?

It is a widely perceived misconception that black ink would be the hardest to remove, when in actual fact it is the easiest, followed by red. This is because darker colours will absorb the energy from the laser far easier than lighter colours. That said, the PicoSure Laser can treat any colour.
