An even and glowing complexion is something we all desire, especially as we age and our years in the sun begin to catch up with us. At Laser Skin Solutions, we can help you reduce the appearance of sun spots, skin pigmentation and age spots using laser for pigmentation, resulting in a fresher and younger looking you.
Pigmentation refers to the darkened areas or spots on our skin that tend to increase or become more pronounced as we get older. Some people might experience skin pigmentation as freckles or sun spots, others as larger blotches, known as melasma. Pigmentation on face and other areas can be triggered by a number of factors in men and women, including:
- Sun exposure- The sun in Australia is particularly fierce and will often leave its mark on our skin in the shape of sun spots and freckles.
- Trauma from an injury– In some cases, injured or damaged skin will leave behind a discoloured surface.
- Hormonal activity– Women are generally more affected. Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy and menopause can all cause pigmentation on the face.
We treat many types of skin pigmentation, including:
- Freckle removal
- Sun spots / age spots
- Melasma / Chloasma
- General skin discolouration
Using the latest in laser technology, in conjunction with other advanced skin rejuvenation treatments, our skilled laser clinicians can reverse the classic signs of sun damage, and also correct some of the damage to the deeper layers of the skin. Most pigmentation concerns require a combination of treatments to obtain the best results. This can include:
- Advanced Laser Treatment
- Chemical Peels
We welcome you to a free no-obligation consultation with one of our expert dermal clinicians before your treatment begins. This is your opportunity to discuss all your skin concerns and discover what treatment, or combination of treatments, is right for you. Our expert laser clinicians will also undertake a thorough skin assessment, taking into account things like:
- Skin type
- Cause of your skin discolouration
- Desired outcome
