About Laser Pigmentation Treatment

Laser Pigmentation Treatment targets and removes areas of pigmentation on the face and body that are affected by sun damage, freckles or pigmentation. Laser pigmentation treatment can be used to treat areas affected on the face and body.

The Problem

The Problem

Pigmentation is caused by excess melanin. A number of factors can trigger an increase in melanin production including sun exposure, hormonal influences, age and skin injuries or inflammation. It can lead to darker areas of the skin often called age spots or melasma.

How It Works

The Problem

The laser light is absorbed by the melanin – or pigment – in the skin, causing the cells to heat up resulting in them being damaged and the body naturally removes them. The treatment area will darken as the pigmented cells are lifted to the surface forming a very light scab. The cells are then naturally shed after a few days, thus reducing or removing the pigment completely.

You can expect to see results after two weeks from your first laser pigmentation treatment. You will be advised if you need a course of treatments depending on the size and severity of the area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Preparing for your treatment
Post Treatment Care

You must not be taking any light sensitive medication. You must not be using topical steroids in the area. No sun exposure or sun beds in the last 4 weeks. No fake tan, gradual tan or instant tan in the area in the last 2 weeks. 

Any change in medication you must inform us at least 48 hrs before the treatment (including herbal remedies). For laser rejuvenation Skinade or Nutrakos will give your skin the collagen building blocks it needs and can be started a month before or at the time of treatment for at least 3 months.

Pigment will darken and should be left to naturally shed from the skin. Do not pick or scratch as this could cause scarring and more pigmentation. Areas with red veins may appear ‘flushed’ or possibly ‘bruised’ for a few days. Rejuvenated areas may be pink after the treatment. Aloe Vera can be used to soothe the area. Use a cool compress to reduce the heat. Avoid perfumed products and heat treatments for 5 days. Cleanse your skin as normal with your ZO cleanser in the evening using cool or tepid water. Resume your ZO exfoliating polish and retinol when the skin has normalised. Always use SPF with excellent UVA protection as the treated area may be more sensitive to the sun for at least one month. We recommend the ZO range range for ongoing skin health. For red veins you must also not exercise for 3 days after the treatment. Do not drink alcohol, take any blood thinners or anti inflammatories for 5 days after the treatment.
