Pigmentation removal works very well with laser treatment, though an initial consultation with our laser specialist will highlight the options available and identify the most effective method to suit your skin type. Traditionally treatments have revolved around fading creams, cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen) and chemical peels. When successful, they can sometimes leave behind a white patch which may be more obvious than the original problem. Newer treatments such as lasers and IPL’s are much more specific. The light is able to specifically target the pigment and destroy it. This is done gently, so that not all pigment in the area is affected, and the background colour is preserved. Although laser treatment is a fantastic method to remove pigments, it is not always the best choice and this is where the traditional methods are best utilised.
