About Laser Pigment Removal

Pigmented lesions, such as freckles, sun spots, and age spots can be removed using our Clarity Laser. These pigmented spots can cause the skin to appear dull and aged. By removing them we can reveal a brighter and younger looking complexion.

How does it work?

During a treatment, the pigment absorbs the energy from the laser. With our long

pulsed Alexandrite wavelength, we can safely and effectively target these pigmented

lesions without causing much trauma to the surrounding tissue. Once the pigment is

absorbed by the laser energy, it will get darker as it comes closer to the surface of the skin. Over the next 7-10 days, it will dry up and begin to look like coffee grounds, and then slowly slough off. This procedure offers the advantage of improving skin tone and surface discolouration in as few as 3-5 treatments.

Are the treatments comfortable?

A pigment removal treatment only takes about 30 minutes. When the pulse of energy is delivered, clients will experience a mild snapping or pinching sensation. Most people experience some discomfort during the treatment, but find it tolerable and worth it for the results.

Is there any downtime or restrictions post treatment?

Shortly following the treatment, pigmented spots often begin to appear darker or intensified before they slough off. This process may take 7-10 days. Our Jane Iredale mineral make-up can be applied to cover any redness and darker pigment. It is important to refrain from anything that causes excessive heat or sweat for 24 hours following your treatment. The sun, including sunless tanning beds must be avoided for a minimum 7 days post treatment. The use of sunscreen is highly recommended on any areas that are exposed to the sun (all year long even in the fall and winter).
