Photorejuvenation and Pigmentation

Photorejuvenation is used to treat Sun Damage, Pigmentation and Diffused Redness

What is Pigmentation?

Pigmentation is the presence of too much melanin pigment in one area which makes a visible brown mark or patch. This is caused by over activity within the melanin producing cells, called melanocytes. Pigmentation can be caused by many things such as hormonal disturbances, the contraceptive pill, pregnancy, some medications, sun damage, using products with too much fragrance or preservative, or certain illnesses just to name a few.

What can you do to treat it?

This is largely dependant on whether the pigment is superficial or deep Pigmentation. Superficial Pigmentation is much more successful to treat and fantastic results can be achieved with the use of Ellipse Intense Pulsed Light. A consultation will be required to ascertain whether you're suitable for this treatment and a patch test will be required.

How many treatments will you need?

This would depend on how long you have had the Pigmentation for, as well as the cause and severity. A thorough assessment is conducted in which we will recommend the type and number of treatments needed.

How does Intense Pulsed Light treat pigmentation?

The melanin in the skin absorbs the light, heats up and is destroyed. Your skin will then naturally shed these cells and the mark will become gradually lighter.
