Pigmentation (better known as sunspots, liver spots, age spots or freckles) is caused by exposure to ultraviolet light, genetics and hormones.
How it works
At The Laser Clinic we use a Ruby Laser (694nm wavelength) to target the melanin in the darkened areas, without affecting the surrounding tissue. The treated areas are first chilled with our cryogenic-chiller for minimal discomfort.
What to Expect
The treatment is safe and relatively quick. There will be slight redness around the lasered areas immediately following treatment. This will disappear over the next 24 hours. Over the next 10 days you will notice the spots fading. Darker areas will require more than one treatment for complete removal. Treatments are 6 weeks apart.
Keep the treated areas well conditioned with a natural moisturiser to prevent itching. Use factor 50+ sunscreen at all times to avoid the recurrence of sunspots.
