Pigmentation Therapy is a treatment of the skin that has an uneven skin tone due to age, spots, sun spots and hyperpigmentation. This treatment fades and removes excess pigmentation, restructuring the skin to an even clearer tone and can also freshen up the complexion, as well as giving a collagen boost within the skin.
What skin types can be treated ?
We treat skin types 1,2 and 3
How does it work?
The heat from the light is attracted through the melanin, the heat reaction breaks down the melanin and coagulates the blood within the area. This then leaves through the lymphatic system leaving the skin with a clearer complexion.
Does it hurt?
The sensation will vary from client to client. The sensation that is felt depends upon the amount of melanin found in the skin. The felling is described as a heat sensation and a few client say it feels like mild sunburn.
What to expect?
Pigmentation therapy will initially turn darker after treatment and the a crusting will appear on the skin which must shed off naturally up to 10 days after the treatment. The skin will appear more even in colour and pigmented lesions would be lighter in colour .
Why do I have to have a patch test and consultation ?
A patch test is conducted to make sure you have no reactions, we complete a through consultation and discuss medical conditions. We may ask for a doctors note before we go ahead with treatment.
This can be discussed at your consultation
