IPL / Laser Pigmentation treatment
The colour of our skin is due to a pigment called Melanin produced by melanocytes. Melanin production is hereditary. Skin that has been exposed to UV LIGHT can develop abnormal pigmentation in form of sun spots(solar lentigines),age spots (lentigines),freckles.
This treatment involves IPL/OR Q switch depending on type of pigment which effectively breaks down pigmentation into smaller particles which is eliminated by body’s own defence system.
We can also treat flat seborrheic keratoses with IPL/q switch.
We do not advice treating some form of pigmentations like melasma, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation .caused by skin injury, trauma, medication, inflammatory condition etc.
We do not treat moles and suspected malignant lesions.
