We offer a wide range of treatments for pigmentation, from laser light to topical products, Medigrade Chemical Peels or products to lighten the area or light therapy.
Melasma (chloasma) brown or grey pigment on the face is also treatable. This is a tougher problem to treat and sometimes products will be prescribed to begin with. A bespoke treatment plan is tailored to each individual.
Different light systems and technologies can now be used to treat a range of different pigmentation problems which need to be treated by a qualified practitioner. If treated incorrectly they could easily worsen the condition.
At Elliott Skin & Laser we will always want to see you for a consultation to begin with to discuss a treatment plan and to make sure we tackle the problem safely and correctly.
If it is specifically related to sun damage, then generally it can be tackled with our medical grade laser, but for more evenly spread out pigment, it could be treated using IPL technology. However, if it is due to a hormonal occurrence, we would recommend treating clients with skin lightening facial peels and products to begin with.
Veins and blood vessels deliver a healthy blood supply to the skin, but when they develop too close to the surface they can also cause marks and blemishes such as spidery veins, thread veins, cherry angiomas (red dots on the abdomen and back).
Laser treatment can dramatically improve your appearance, leaving unsightly facial and leg veins far less visible. Our state of the art laser eliminates unwanted red veins, leaving healthy vein free skin. The laser targets and breaks down the unwanted red veins through a process called photothermolysis (heat). Lasers allow for quick treatment of vascular lesions without damaging the surrounding skin. Light is absorbed by the blood, destroying the vessel.
Over time, the vessel disappears, restoring the skin’s natural appearance. The laser bypasses normal skin only interacting with the abnormal veins. This happens very quickly and with only minor discomfort. The number of treatments vary from patient to patient, but 1-4 treatments are usually sufficient.
