About skin pigmentation
Brown spots, liver spots, age spots, sun spots, sunburn freckles, lentigos, or senile/solar lentigines are all associated with premature aging and exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun.
These marks range in colour from light brown to red or black and are located in areas most often exposed to the sun, particularly the hands, face, shoulders, arms, decollete and forehead. Most are harmless, but all are ageing and may be unattractive.

The Skin Pigmentation treatment
The Energist IPL treatment removes the areas of excessive pigmentation leaving the texture and colour of the skin natural and unchanged.
This treatment will not prevent the development of new separate areas of pigmentation. Regular and careful use of sunscreen combined with an antioxidant is essential if new areas are to be prevented. We recommend daily usage of a minimum SPF30 sun protection cream.

How Skin Pigmentation treatments works
The specially designed IPL light is absorbed only by the cells containing excessive concentrations of pigment (melanin) and destroys the pigment granules. It does not destroy the surrounding tissues or remove the normal skin colour. The light pulses produced by the IPL feels similar to a flicking rubber band and for most people is not too uncomfortable.
The pigmentation should appear darker at first before it fades and for 7 – 10 days the area will look like a scab, which eventually peels off.

How effective is Skin Pigmentation treatment?
Greater than 95% fading is usually achieved with age spots and sunburn freckles.

How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the area to be treated, usually three to five treatments are required depending on the severity of the pigmentation.
