Treating Pigmentation Concerns with LaserSkin Specialist

Pigmentation Becoming a Concern For You?

WHAT CAUSES PIGMENTATION?

Pigmentation, or skin discoloration, is a common concern that can detract from your skin’s natural beauty. But what causes these changes in skin tone? Here are the key factors:

  • Sun Exposure: The primary culprit, UV rays stimulate melanin production, leading to sunspots and uneven skin tone.
  • Hormonal Changes: Conditions like melasma are often triggered by hormonal fluctuations, common during pregnancy or with certain medications.
  • Aging: As we age, our skin can develop age spots or liver spots, especially in areas frequently exposed to the sun.
  • Genetic Factors: Some people are more prone to pigmentation due to their genetic makeup.
  • Inflammation: Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can occur after injury or acne, leaving dark spots.

HOW TO TREAT PIGMENTATION?

At LaserSkin Specialist, we offer a range of effective treatments to address pigmentation:

  1. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Therapy: Ideal for reducing the appearance of sunspots and age spots, IPL therapy targets pigmented areas without harming surrounding skin. Find out more about IPL here
  2. BBL (Broad Band Light) Therapy: similar to IPL but instead we are using different settings to be able to pass over the skin multiple times, therefore offering a solution that is less painful, but still amazing results at targeting and removing pigmentation and dark spots all with next to no down time. Find out more about BBL here
  3. Enzyme or Chemical Peels: These peels remove the top layer of skin, to revealing a more even-toned, refreshed and hydrated complexion beneath. Find out more about peels here
  4. Microdermabrasion: This gentle exfoliation technique can help to fade and soften superficial pigmentation. Find out more about microdermabrasion here
  5. Laser Skin Resurfacing: Our advanced Venus Viva Nanofractional treatment is similar to an advanced CO2 laser to target deeper pigmentation, promoting new, healthy skin cell growth and resurfacing lines and wrinkles, except without the associated pain and downtime that comes with advanced laser treatments and is safe for all skin types.
  6. Customized Skincare Regimens: We also offer tailored skincare products to complement and enhance your in-clinic treatments to ensure your treatments are maximised and best results achieved. Find out more about our home care solutions here

The time frame for seeing results varies depending on the treatment type and individual skin response. Some treatments show immediate improvement, while others may require multiple sessions over several weeks or months for full effect.

For best results & aftercare

To ensure maximum results and the best condition for your skin, we highly recommend our prescribed cosmeceutical products to be used in conjunction with all our skin treatments.

As specialists in treating pigmentation, we understand the importance of aftercare and taking care of your skin post-treatment.

To adequately prepare your skin for your pigmentation treatments, you may be required to apply topical nutrients to your skin as advised by our skin specialist and try to stay out of direct sunlight for 1-2 weeks before & after your treatment. It is also recommended to apply 30+ sunscreen daily, even when not in direct sunlight.

After your pigmentation treatments, your skin might look a little flushed but will return to its natural colour within 1-3 days, depending on the treatment performed. There are no side effects or extended downtime associated with our pigmentation treatments.

For all pigmentation treatments, we suggest using the PRO Lite Serum, which works to protect the skin from further pigmentation & inflammation, as well as working to lighten & brighten your current pigmentation.

“I have been having laser and IPL treatments at LaserSkin Specialist periodically since I moved to the coast from country Victoria 4 years ago. I wish I had it done years ago. Spending so much time at the beach, I was always conscious of my bikini line. Now I don’t even have to worry as it looks great.

I highly recommend LaserSkin Specialist to everyone because they are very friendly and make you feel comfortable throughout the whole procedure.”
