Pigmented Lesion Removal
Pigmented lesions such as age spots, sun spots freckles and other superficial benign dark lesions which usually occur due to sun exposure and broken capillaries can be successfully treated with IPL Laser to create a more even and youthful skin tone especially when the laser treatment is combined with other therapies e.g. microdermabrasion, cosmeceuticals to achieve best results.
The light from the IPL laser is rapidly absorbed by the high concentration of the melanin found within the age / sun spots and freckles and this absorbed light energy heats up the melanin-rich cells causing their destruction. The body then naturally removes the damaged cells and tissue giving the body a more even tone and texture.
It is important to note not all dark skin lesions are to be treated this way and thus a consultation with one of our medical experts is first carried out to ascertain the type of lesion and if treatment can be carried out safely. We at LasaDerm would also exclude any sinister lesions that may need specialised referral.
First the area to be treated with the laser is cooled using a cold pack and then a cool gel is applied which helps the conduction of the energy from the laser into the skin. When the IPL system/laser is fired you will feel a sensation rather like a sharp ‘flick’ which is over in a second or two. The area is then cooled again and the practitioner then moves to the next area to be treated.
Depending on the type and size of lesion to be treated, it is likely more than one session is needed to achieve best results and this will be discussed with you during your consultation.
