Skin pigmentation refers to darker patches on your skin. Special cells called melanocytes generate colour using melanin, this is what gives skin colour. People with albinism have almost none, very dark skinned people have a lot and there all of the variations in between.
If these cells become unhealthy or damaged it can affect melanin production. This can affect your whole body or just little parts of your skin. If that occurs, then those parts of your skin become skin pigmentations or pigmented lesions.
Certain factors which can cause skin pigmentation or pigmented lesions to manifest are injuries, burns, infections, inflammation, drugs, hormones and sunlight. Skin pigmentations or lesions manifest in various ways, such as freckles, age-spots, sun-spots, liver-spots and melasma.
None of these conditions are dangerous or contagious but they can be unsightly and from an aesthetic medicinal point of view something that can be tackled, to help you improve your confidence and appearance we use laser IPL technology aiming a special wavelength to treat all kind of pigmentation conditions.
Laser skin pigmentation removal is suitable for:
- Age spots

IPL helps to initiate an enhanced ‘healing’ response by stimulating increased collagen production in the skin. It reduces active acne lesions and can improve superficial acne scarring.
Laser skin resurfacing works by removing areas of damaged or wrinkled skin. The procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes. However, it is also effective in treating facial scars or areas of uneven pigmentation. Laser resurfacing may be performed on the whole face or in specific regions.
The benefits of skin resurfacing treatment includes firmer, smoother skin that uplifts the entire look of your face and brings out your other features. Treatment times are of reasonably short lengths, and recovery period is usually no more than a day. Within this short time, you can achieve a completely renewed skin tone that will benefit your self-confidence for months.

Thread veins respond well to IPL and it is an excellent non-invasive treatment for removing these spidery red or purple lines from your skin.
IPL works to treat thread veins by firing short bursts of light of different wavelengths onto the affected area. This light is absorbed by the haemoglobin in the thread veins, causing those blood vessels damage. Eventually the veins break down and are reabsorbed by the body. IPL effectively treats thread veins while minimising harmful effects to surrounding healthy tissue.
Pixel laser uses a high energy beam to resurface the upper dermis layer. It repairs damaged or aging skin, acne, pitted scars and pigmentation. It stimulates the body's natural healing process by enhancing new growth in the area. The pixel laser can target specific areas leaving the surrounding skin untouched. This is also a less invasive procedure that gets better skin results. It is suitable for most skin types and most skin tones. Clients achieve good results after completing a course of treatments. We recommend 1-6 treatments to see results.
