At Laser Sydney Laser Pigment Reduction is achieved with the use of our Candela GentleLASE Class 4 Medical Grade Alexandrite 755nm Laser. The GentleLASE is the most advanced, FDA & TGA approved laser in the world for providing safe and effective treatments. Laser pigmentation removal works by using an intense burst of light to target the pigmented lesions causing the selective healing of the upper dermis. The pigment can be precisely targeted without causing any damage to surrounding tissue or overlying dermis. After each laser treatment, a gentle wound healing response leads to new collagen formation and a clinical improvement to the treated area over time. The pigmentation/sun spot will gradually lighten and fade, slowly disappearing. Initially the treated area may seem darker and flaking is common.
GentleLASE Pro® from Syneron-Candela, USA is the premier laser for removing hair, pigmented lesions, veins and wrinkles. When treating pigmentation we are only able to perform treatments on skin types 1-3 (Fair skin types).
The Candela laser is designed to treat superficial brown spots and is also effective in removing other brown marks like café au lait patches, Nevus of Ito, Nevus of Ota, freckles and flat pigmented moles. A few kinds of pigmentation (in particular melasma) do not improve in response to this form of laser treatment.
Melanin is what gives our skin its colour. Pigmented lesions are dark in colour simply because melanin is abnormally concentrated in one area of the skin. High concentrations of melanin can be due to various factors. Some types are present at birth, but most occur with age or as a result of overexposure to the sun’s damaging rays.
Lentigines or age spots are premature ageing brown marks, which appear on the backs of hands and the face. Sunburn freckles are the result of sun damage and occur on the back, upper chest and shoulders. Most are harmless but all are ageing and may be unattractive. Cafe au lait, Nevus of Ota, Mongolian spots and other flat pigmented birthmarks are localized areas of increased pigmentation in the skin, which are present at birth. Although most brown spots are easily ignored, many are quite conspicuous and can detract from your skin’s natural beauty.
