At SILK Laser Clinics – Adelaide’s leading hair and pigmentation removal specialists – we have found a rise in the number of clients affected by pigmentation. There can many factors that contribute to this skin condition such as skin type, sun exposure, hormonal imbalance, medications and pregnancy.

A combination of laser treatment with the Candela GentleLASE followed by a Medical Microhydrabrasion can effectively reduce pigmentation in as little as 2 treatments.

Following laser treatment, the pigment in the treated area flakes off within around 2 weeks. We recommend the skin is then exfoliated with microdermabrasion to remove any remaining spots of treated pigment and to encourage new cell turnover. The result is a smooth, more even skin tone.

For pigmentation clients that are not suitable for laser treatment, we recommend a course of Microhydrabrasion treatments and continuous use of a topical lightening cream – Environ Clarifying lotion. This product will target the pigment and contains a tyrsosinase inhibitor that helps to prevent pigment from developing in the future.

Please call any of our four clinics at Hyde Park, Norwood, Prospect, or Elizabeth to book your free consultation with one of our experienced, laser certified technicians.
