Freckles are characterised by multiple small and flat pigmented spots that cover the face and entire body. Unlike age spots which are usually the result of excessive sun exposure, true freckles develop during childhood and are more predominant on paler skins. Most freckles are a product of genetics; however the condition is exacerbated by sun exposure.
Freckles are most commonly found on:
Photo Rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment performed with a medical-grade Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). Utilising a specific light designed to target the pigmentation in freckles, the light is transformed into heat energy that can treat the areas of uneven skin tone and freckles without harming the skin’s surface. A course of Photo Rejuvenation may be required for areas of stubborn pigmentation or freckling, however results may be seen after just one treatment.
Cosmelan is a highly innovative system that gently targets and treats unwanted pigmentation on the face and body. The two-phase intensive treatment programme firstly involves the application of a highly potent de-pigmenting mask. This is applied at the clinic and it is not washed off for up to 6-10 hours following application (dependent on skin type). The second treatment phase is an at-home maintenance cream that should be applied twice daily to enhance the effects of the mask.
This safe and non-invasive procedure treats the source of pigment formation to deliver a rapidly clearer, brighter and more clarified complexion.
Laser Facial uses Q-Switched Laser technology which uses combination of high power and short pulse widths (less than 20 nanoseconds – one nanosecond is equivalent to one billionth of a second) that deliver energy throughout the layers of the epidermis, faster than the normal relaxation time of the tissue. This process safely breaks down and shatters small particles comprising the discolouration or skin lesion, which are then later removed by the body’s immune system.
Carbon Laser Peel is the application of specialised laser energy to reduce visible skin age spots, freckles, pigmentation and improve skin tone.
The laser energy works in two ways, first it gently targets the melanin (pigmentation/age spots) in the cells breaking it up for your body’s natural removal processes, and second it heats deep in the dermis causing the skin to contract and stimulate collagen.
