Laser Pigmentation Removal
Pigmentation, Lentigines, Age-Spots, Sun Damage, Freckles and Cafe au Lait spots are all descriptions of a concentration of pigmented cells in the skin.
They are usually harmless, brown discolorations of the skin which can occur on the hands, neck and face of people over the age of 40.
These spots are age-related and are mainly caused by over-exposure to sunlight over many years, without adequate sunscreen protection. Such spots are usually harmless and do not require medical investigation unless they change colour, size or become irregular or fragile.
The Erbium laser is used as part of our dermatological treatment to carefully remove the layer of skin containing the darkened pigment, allowing a fresh and healthier skin surface to regenerate, and by stimulating the deeper collagen layer to thicken, improving the elasticity and texture of the skin.
Laser dermatological treatment cannot stop the ageing of the skin and other age spots will appear in time (these spots can be seen with our Visia Skin Analysis). In order to minimise this patients should use sunscreen and avoid over exposure to the sun.
