LASER FOR PIGMENTATION
Laser therapies to even out your skin tone, improve skin texture, and remove unwanted pigmentation and freckles.
Target pigmentation, sun spots and freckles
Sun damage can create excess pigmentation and freckles across your face, neck, chest and legs, discolouring your skin and leaving you looking tired and aged. Laser pigmentation removal helps to even out your skin tone, improve skin texture, and remove unwanted pigmentation and freckles with fast, safe and effective results!
Laser pigmentation removal is ideal for:
Uneven skin tone and texture
Benefits of laser pigmentation removal
Permanently remove pigmentation & freckles
Laser pigmentation treatments provide a permanent solution for existing pigmentation. (However, new spots can develop over time in new areas.)
Achieve a smooth & even skin tone
Correct uneven skin tone and erase pigmentation problems for a smoother, clearer complexion, targeting hard-to-treat concerns like port-wine stains.
Fast & effective
Treatments take 20 to 30 minutes, with results seen after one to six sessions, so you can achieve great results without a huge time commitment.
How does laser pigmentation removal work?
Pigmentation, sun spots and freckles can appear as we age, creating an uneven complexion and an older appearance. Laser pigmentation removal targets this pigment to provide a clearer, smoother skin that is even-toned. The dermal clinician will apply a gel to your skin, which allows the laser to glide over the target areas with ease. The laser works by delivering light pulses to the problem areas. This lightens and even the pigments for a smoother complexion.
How does laser pigmentation therapy compare to other therapies?
- Laser pigmentation treatments do not break or peel the skin.
- Treatment is customised to meet your needs.
- Minimal discomfort.
- No anaesthetic required.
- Long-term results.
- Resume normal activities immediately.

Frequently asked questions
How many laser sessions are needed for pigmentation removal?
It can take anywhere from one treatment to about five laser treatments, depending on your skin type and treated area. For someone with medium-toned dark spots all over their face, they may need more than one session to be effective enough. However, if you have just a few scattered light brown freckles on your arms, then maybe only two sessions would do the trick!
What should I expect after my laser pigmentation treatment?
You need breaks between laser treatments for your skin to heal. It can take up to four weeks or longer before your skin is ready for another session, which is why we recommend taking long breaks in between treatments.
Improvement is usually seen after each laser treatment.
Does laser pigmentation removal hurt?
As described by most patients, laser pigmentation removal does not hurt. It feels like a tiny rubber band hitting your skin (annoying rather than painful).
How long does laser take?
Each laser pigmentation treatment takes about 20-30 minutes.
