A Younger, Brighter You with Laser Facial Pigmentation Removal in Melbourne
If there is one thing that can appear to age the skin, it's pigmentation. Laser pigmentation removal decreases this effect by eliminating the skin deficiencies that mature your look, even more than wrinkles. Freckles, age spots and discoloured skin can all receive pigmentation treatment resulting in a younger, brighter skin and complexion.
Looking younger is easy with laser treatment for pigmentation
Laser treatment for pigmentation targets the melanosomes which carries the pigmentation with a light source that leads to the dissolution of pigmentation by blasting or heating the melanosomes and leaving the healthy cells unaffected.
This means that any unwanted spots on your skin can be safely removed with one of the best pigmentation treatment options available. The end result is smoother, evenly-toned, younger-looking skin.
The reason why so many people opt for laser treatment for face and sensitive areas include:
- Small levels of pain
- A decrease in the amount of inflammation
- Excellent tissue regeneration
- Nerve repair and regeneration

How it Works
Laser treatment for pigmentation works via selective photothermolysis, which uses a particular laser wavelength which targets pigmented lesions, leaving the healthy skin relatively unaffected.
The lasers discharge pulsations of light which find the melanin in the pigment, disrupting it with thermal heat. Another option which uses a similar method is q-switched lasers which shatter the pigment leading to its eventual breakdown. These are often used in tattoo removal as well.
There are various categories which the skin pigmentation can fall into including:
- Epidermal (superficial) pigmentation – close to the surface of the skin usually caused by exposure to the sun resulting in solar lentigos and freckles
- Dermal (deep) pigmentation – Found in the dermal layers
- Mixed dermal/epidermal pigmentation – Often in both the superficial and deep layers of the skin
Most Popular FAQs
While pigmentation issues often occur on people with darker skin tones they can be slightly more challenging to treat than that of a fairer skin. To combat this, a different preparation of the skin with lightening creams can be used before laser treatment to help reduce chances of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Further to this, the laser settings can be changed to something more appropriate for any skin type.
Pigmentation is excess melanin in skin cells that leads to discolouration. Many factors can lead to this however excessive sun exposure is one of the most common along with hereditary factors and hormonal changes.
Laser pigmentation removal is usually permanent if the correct post-treatment procedures are maintained. Pigmentation as a result of sun exposure may begin to reappear over time; however there is follow up treatment options that can help prevent this.
While this is dependent on the severity, size and type of pigmentation patients may require anywhere between 2-6 treatments. The pigmentation type, colour, and depth, as well as the condition of the skin, will determine the exact number on a case-by-case basis. Further to this, a test patch prior to treatment can be performed and reviewed to determine the success level to be expected. It is important to know that a complete clearing may not always be possible.
Once again this will depend on the severity of the pigmentation however sessions can run from as little as 5 to 30 minutes.
There is usually slight discomfort during treatment with the after effect of a sunburn-like pain for roughly 48 hours afterward. There are however methods to reduce the burning feeling with cold packs and soothing gels, which will also help reduce redness and inflammation.
Immediately after your session it is likely that the pigmentation will darken for around 48 hours. Eventually, it will crust and flake away over the next two weeks. These timelines are of course dependent on the severity of the initial pigmentation.
Medical grade lasers do not affect the Dermis skin layer meaning that scarring is very unlikely. If any damage or scarring is caused as a result of treatment, it will disappear over time with the proper care and not be permanent.
Laser treatment for pigmentation can be performed on all areas of the body; however, the most common areas are those regularly exposed to the sun. These can include the face, neck, and hands.
