Pigmentation Removal

Pigmentation Reduction and Removal

It's waking up bright every day.

Pigmentation increases how old we look – more so than wrinkles. So, if there’s something about your skin that’s bothering you it’s easy to do something about it. Reduce freckles, age spots, and larger patches of discoloured skin with our medical-grade Candela laser pigmentation removal, Cosmedical-grade peels and Skin Needling. Because who doesn’t want a younger, brighter, more even complexion. 

At Laser Clinics New Zealand we use state-of-the-art GentleLase Pro lasers to perform the treatment and are experienced in the reduction of superficial pigmentation delivering fantastic results.

Laser Pigmentation Removal works to safely and effectively reduce the appearance of freckles, pigmentation and post-trauma pigmentation including acne scars and age spots. The laser targets only the pigmented lesion in the skin which absorbs the light, without damaging the surrounding skin. The laser heats up and shatters the pigment. The pigment is then drawn to the surface without harming the surrounding tissue.
 
Once drawn to the surface, the pigmented lesions will fade or dry and flake off the treated area, leaving the skin with an even tone and complexion.

Preparation

No sun exposure 2 weeks prior and use of Institut Age Defence SPF 50+ sunscreen.

Aftercare

Any pigmentation removal treatments that use medical grade lasers can expect a mild discolouration of pigment before it heals after just a few days.

The treated area may also become more sensitive to sun exposure. As always, sun protection is key.  

LED Light Therapy Results

Team Laser Pigmentation Removal with the Yellow LED Light Therapy treatment to fast-track the breakdown of the pigment through stimulation of the lymphatic system.

Treatment Options for Pigmentation Removal

 

Pigmentation Removal

We use state-of-the-art GentleLase Pro lasers to perform the treatment and are experienced in the reduction of superficial pigmentation delivering fantastic results.

The laser is attracted to the pigmented lesion in the skin which absorbs the light. The laser heats up and shatters the pigment. The pigment is then drawn to the surface without harming the surrounding tissue.
 
Once drawn to the surface, the pigmented lesions will fade or dry and flake off the treated area, leaving the skin with an even tone and complexion.

Cosmedical Grade Peels

This treatment is perfect for visibly reducing the appearance of superficial pigmentation.

Cosmedical grade peels penetrate the skin’s surface and remove the outer layers to reveal the newer skin beneath.

The type of peel used may vary depending on your skin type and the desired result.

Skin Needling (Dermal Rolling)

Hormonal pigmentation can be caused by numerous factors such as pregnancy or medication, and requires a different approach to treatment.

Skin Needling can be used to break apart the bands of hyper-pigmentation associated with hormonal causes.

This treatment also causes an organic stimulation of collagen and the skin’s supportive elements.

 

For your best result

We recommend 3-6 treatments at 4 week intervals. We always recommend maintenance after an initial course of treatments.

Preparation Required

No sun exposure 2 weeks prior and use of Skinstitut Age Defence SPF 50+ sunscreen.

Aftercare

Any pigmentation removal treatments that use medical grade lasers can expect a mild discolouration of pigment before it heals after just a few days.

The treated area can also sometimes become more sensitive to sun exposure however with proper sunsafe precautions, the effects are minimal.

We recommend Skinstitut Laser Aid, Age Defence SPF 50+, Evenblend & Vitmain C to help maintain the results of your pigmentation removal treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I know what treatment is right for me?
    Speak to one of our skin specialists for a complimentary skin consultation. We love educating people about their skin and will offer you a tailored treatment plan
  • What will my skin look like when I walk out of the clinic - will I need time off work?
    Each person’s skin is different – so your response will vary, but the majority of our skin treatments require no downtime. . Your therapist will take you through a post-treatment care regime that will minimise any impact to your skin.
  • How long will it take for me to see a result after my treatments?
    Each procedure is different – our less invasive treatments (such as microdermabrasion and superficial chemical peels) give more immediate results, and our more invasive treatments (such as Fractional RF (Max RF), Dermal rolling and deeper chemical peels) taken longer to see results (1-3 months). These treatments, however, have more lasting impacts than the less invasive treatments. Your therapist will advise on a treatment plan that will include a variety of treatments and our cosmedical-grade skin scapre products to address the skin concerns you have.
  • How do I maximise the benefits of my skin treatments?

    Combine your treatments with LED light therapy and Skinstitut cosmedical skin care.

    LED works on a cellular level to fight active acne, rosacea and leaves your skin energised and youthful. The deep penetrating LED lights are designed to be soothing, target deep into skin cells to heighten their internal functions, photo-stimulate dermal blood flow and induce faster healing, reduce acne and treat rosacea.

    Cosmedicals are the newest and arguably the most effective category of skin products that can be purchased without prescription. Often described as an advanced cosmeceutical, Cosmedicals have the ability to target not only present and past skin damage, but provide the skin with some preventative capacity for the future. Based on a medically and clinically proven blend of AHA, Retinoids, Vitamin C, Peptides, Antioxidant and SPF technology, Cosmedicals are not only reliant on a potent percentage of active ingredients but utilise carefully formulated base formulas, encapsulation technology and penetration enhancers to deliver benefits as deep as possible into the skin.

  • Why do I need to use aftercare products?

    The importance of before and aftercare is to ensure you receive maximum results with minimal side effects to the treatments we offer. This includes our skin and laser treatments and can even be applied to cosmetic injections.

    For example our 5 a-day home care pack has everything you need for before and after your treatments. It will help to ensure you get fantastic results and your skin will heal and respond effectively following your treatments.
