Pigmentation, Age Spots
and Sun Damage IPL/Laser Treatment


Your body contains a pigment called melanin, which determines the colour of your skin, hair and eyes. People with darker skin types tend to have more melanin in their skin cells than those with lighter skin – but imbalances and disorders of the skin can lead to inconsistent colouration, patterning and ‘blotches’.

Pigmentation or dark patches can be a result of numerous factors, such as age or sun exposure, and can often be difficult to treat. However using the latest innovative laser technologies such as IPL which break down the concentrations of melanin, dark blemishes can be significantly reduced, leaving you with a brighter, clear and more even complexion.

Michelle was great. She listened to what my concerns were and really understood what I was looking for. She ran through the treatments very clearly and helped me come to a decision about the best course to take. The treatment itself was very relaxing.

Frequently asked questions

Pigmentation, Age Spots & Sun Damage

  1. Does the treatment hurt?

    The treatment is not painful and at most you may notice slight discomfort.

  2. Are there any side effects?

    Depending on your skin type and the area in question, there is redness and swelling, that feels like mild sunburn, for up to 2-3 days after treatment.

    The treated area may also appear darker for 5-7 days after treatment but this will clear shortly afterwards as your body breaks down and absorbs the melanin.

  3. What is the aftercare?

    Applying cool packs to the skin for the first few hours after treatment will help reduce any discomfort. Aloe Vera gel can also be helpful.

    Use SPF 50 and avoid sun exposure. This is essential to avoid the risk of hyper or darker pigmentation.

    Avoid touching/picking/scratching the treated area.
    Avoid hot baths, exercise and heat treatments.
    Treat the skin gently, especially for the first 24 hours.
