Questions and Answers

How does the treatment work?

Light is released in short pulses that are readily absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found within the pigmented lesions. The rapid absorption of light energy heats the melanin and causes destruction of the melanin-rich cells.

Am I suitable for treatment?

Most people are suitable for treatment except for very dark skinned or tanned individuals. However, large, dark, mottled or raised pigmentation cannot be treated and may need to be checked by a dermatologists. Large dark moles should not be treated, nor should lesions covering a large part of the body. The pigmented marks that respond the best are superficial lesions such as those caused by sun damage (sun spots) and freckles.

How does the treatment feel?

Treatment can me mildly uncomfortable but no anaesthesia is required, most people describe the discomfort as tolerable.

What to expect after treatment

The treated area may feel warm and sensitive for the first few days post treatment. The lesions may darken and may appear more obvious before they fade and flake away. Sometimes an initial whitening of the area is seen which quickly fades and the pigment gradually fades over the following few weeks.

Are there any side effects?

The skin that surrounds the pigmented lesion may become red immediately after the treatment. Most people experience no other side effects and the redness usually disappears within hours to a few days. Very rarely a small blister may form or the skin may become temporarily lighter or darker.

How long does each treatment take?

It all depends on the type and size of lesion present, but a typical session will take 10 to 30 minutes.

How many treatments are necessary?

It all depends on the type and size of lesion present, but typically 1-3 sessions are required every 4-6 week intervals.

Consultation Procedure

Prior to treatment, a consultation is conducted in which a medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment. This is also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have. Before treatment commences you must provide written consent and a small patch test will be carried out.
