Skin pigmentation usually takes the form of age spots, freckles or large patches of skin discolouration. These skin conditions can be treated by a number of medical grade specialised lasers or peels. Treatments depend on the severity of the condition and skin type. At Total Face Group, we have clinics around Australia that are dedicated to offering freckle removal and pigmentation removal treatments to enable patients to look and feel the way they want.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM FRECKLE AND PIGMENTATION REMOVAL
Most freckles and pigmentation will usually darken 50-80% on your first session, this may decrease with ongoing treatments due to the depth of the pigment we are targeting. With 10 to 14 days after treatment the pigmented area treated will either lighten or gently flake away. We strongly advise during this time that you do not force this process with active ingredients or picking. During the treatment itself, the intense pulsed light will absorb the darkness of the targeted pigment area causing darkening. This process draws the pigment to the skin surface without damaging the surrounding tissue. The sensation you will feel during an IPL pigmentation treatment is similar to a warm elastic band flick and is tolerable without anaesthetic. The number of treatments required may vary, depending on the amount of freckles and/or pigmentation. Usually, the client may need to undergo 3-6 treatments in one of our Melbourne clinics for optimal results. A treatment plan will be discussed with you by one of a Dermal Clinicians.
POTENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR FRECKLE AND PIGMENTATION REMOVAL
Good candidates for freckle removal or pigmentation removal are those with fair skin and have pigmentations or freckles visible on their face or parts of the body. Pigmentation and freckle removal is suitable for women and men of any age. For those with darker skin, this treatment may not be suitable.
Some clients may report a slight stinging or burning sensation during the pigmentation/freckle removal. Redness can also occur but it will usually settle in 2 to 4 hours. Other side effects are usually rare.
