    WHAT IS LASER REMOVAL OF PIGMENTED LESIONS?

    Lasers are a simple, fast, effective and safe tool for removing a wide variety of benign pigmented lesions, such as freckles, age spots, birthmarks, moles, certain vascular lesions, ephelides, melasma, seborrheic and actinic keratoses.

    HOW DOES IT WORK?

    Laser removal of pigmented lesions works by destroying the pigment in the skin without the need for excision. This process is completed in 3 simple steps:

    Step 1 - LIGHT ABSORPTION: The laser produces short nanosecond pulses of intense light that pass harmlessly through the top layers of the skin to be selectively absorbed by the melanin pigment in the lesion.

    Step 2 – PIGMENT BREAK-UP: The laser light is transformed into photoacoustic waves which mechanically break up the melanin pigment into smaller particles.

    Step 3 – PIGMENT REMOVAL: These particles are then removed by the body's own immune system, as the skin's macrophages clear the excess pigment from the area.

    WHY IS WAVELENGTH IMPORTANT?

    The laser wavelength is what determines which chromophore will be predominantly targeted by the laser to be selectively removed. Clinical studies show that superficial lesions can be treated most effectively with the KTP 532 nm wavelength, while the Nd:YAG 1064 nm wavelength can be used to target deeper-lying chromophores. Additionally, Q-switched light, available with Fotona's QX MAX laser system, is especially effective due to its high peak powers and selective nature, enabling it to break apart pigments only and not cells. This means that pigment destruction can take place without ablating the skin.

    WHY IS THE QX MAX PERFECT FOR LASER REMOVAL OF PIGMENTED LESIONS?

    It is widely recognised in the medical community that Q-Switched lasers are the ideal tool for effectively removing benign pigmented lesions. Combining 4 laser modalities in an advanced, high-powered solution, Fotona's QX MAX laser system effectively removes all common pigmented lesions. Fotona's innovative R-HX handpiece produces a completely flat laser beam profile that is hexagonal in shape to allow for more precise and uniform coverage. Homogeneity of the laser beam profile is important in pigment removal treatments and skin whitening. It ensures safety during treatment since laser energy is evenly distributed across the treated area. The system's OPTOflex articulated arm increases precision and safety. OPTOflex generates absolute uniform beam profiles. Its ergonomic design allows easy and natural hand movement during procedures.

    SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE

    Laser treatment of pigmented lesions is quick, sutureless, has a rapid healing time and produces excellent results. It is suitable for all ethnic skin types. For example, Asian skin is highly sensitive to heat, and often hyper-pigmentation can result from using the wrong laser sources or as a result of poor administration of the laser treatment. The Nd:YAG or KTP Nd:YAG laser sources, on the other hand, have been generating desirable treatment results to all ethnic skin types.

    FOTONA STARWALKER: A GLOBALLY RECOGNISED ULTRAPERFORMANCE Q-SWITCHED LASER SYSTEM.

    Since its introduction, Fotona's QX MAX has been globally recognised as an ultra-performance Q-Switched laser system. The StarWalker represents the next important evolutionary step forward and takes the system to an even higher level.

    ASP: Third Generation Technology

    StarWalker® and its groundbreaking ASP (Adaptive Structured Pulse) technology represent a cosmic shift forward for the medical and aesthetic laser industry.

    This third-generation technology combines the unsurpassed range of pulse duration modes of Fotona's VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology with the revolutionary capability of ASP technology to adapt the temporal structure of laser pulses to the bio-photonic dynamics of laser-tissue interaction.

    Power of a Pico Laser with the Energy of a Q-Switched Laser

    StarWalker's unique TMD (Transverse Mode Discrimination) laser oscillator technology combined with the ASP pulse control delivers very short (5 nsec) Q-switched pulses consisting of a high energy train of ultra-short bursts of energy in trillionths of a second, enabling photomechanical impact to shatter tiny skin targets without injury to the surrounding skin. StarWalker's technology thus combines the high energy capabilities of nanosecond lasers with the ultrashort pulse peak powers of traditional picosecond lasers.

    Modulated Acoustics Q-Switched (MaQX) Laser System - Unmatched Q-Switched Pulse Energy

    Fotona's StarWalker laser system features the entire range of super-short pulse technologies in a single, high-performance solution. StarWalker's patented MaQX pulse modalities produce powerful bursts of laser energy that photoically break apart skin pigmentations into smaller, more easily eliminated particles.

    Based on revolutionary ASP technology, the StarWalker is capable of delivering up to an unprecedented 10 J of Q-switched energy in one giant structured MaQX pulse. The unique MaQX high energy capability of StarWalker enables the generation of a higher energy photoacoustic effect at the treatment site, leading to more effective and faster treatments. Additionally, with high MaQX energies, larger spot sizes can be used resulting in more homogeneous treatments of even deeper lying skin pigments, and therefore with reduced risk of unwanted side effects.

    KEY BENEFITS

    • Third-generation ASP technology for ultimate precision, efficacy and safety of treatments
    • The most comprehensive range of procedure modes, including unique MaQX, VERDE, FRAC3 and VERSA3 methods for pigment, vascular and collagen treatments
    • Impressive line of advanced smart control handpieces
    • Intuitive, easy-to-use parameter selection
    • Minimally invasive, safe treatments with little downtime
    • Great patient comfort and satisfaction

Scar removal for acne & acne scars, keloid scars, self-harm scars, surgical scars, traumatic scars & burn scars. Acne scar removal treatment using resurfacing lasers has been the gold standard in treatment for many years; however, today with the advancement of mixed laser technology and cutting edge scar revision techniques all scars on all skin tones are treatable offering exceptional results. The clinicians are renowned for their scar removal work, in particular with victims of crime cases, keloid scars and self-harm scars.

    Industry Leaders In Scar Removal

    Across all types of scars, Melbourne Laser & Aesthetic Centre has led the clinical scar reduction industry with proven success. From traumatic scars to surgical scars, self-harm scars, Keloid scars and acne scar treatment, Melbourne Laser & Aesthetic Centre clinicians offer outstanding results for patients who seek to minimise the appearance of their imperfections.

    Over the past 15 years in the field of scar removal, Melbourne Laser & Aesthetic Centre directors Tania Caputo and Tania Fognini have focused on scar reduction and remodelling as a specialised area of practice incorporating various innovative techniques. Scars may be treated with single methods or combined methods which may include mixed fractionated laser resurfacing, cautery and debulking techniques, fractional radiofrequency and skin needling to smooth the skin.

    Other laser technologies such as Q Switch and Vascular lasers may be incorporated that target specific colours within scars to achieve a more even skin colour. Dermal fillers, dermal techniques and topical applications may also be incorporated into a treatment plan depending on the scar condition.

    The Dermal Clinician's skill and experience in treating scarring are essential in obtaining results. As each scar is a product of different causes and origins, each scar is treated individually based on a comprehensive assessment. Armed with the latest laser technology and scar techniques, the Melbourne Laser & Aesthetic Centre clinicians are renowned as scar removal specialists and lead the way in cutting edge methods.

    The centre directors are skilled in treating a broad range of scar profiles, developing clinically proven methods in treating all types of scarring. Both Senior Dermal Clinicians have been pioneers with many cosmetic methods used in aesthetic practice today, originally known for their work in IPL Photorejuvenation and then most recently with their innovative and proven scar revision methods, surpassing any conventional methods.

    All patients are assessed, consulted and reviewed by either Ms Tania Caputo or Tania Fognini throughout their individualised scar remodelling program.

    HOW DOES LASER FACIAL WORK?

    At Australia Laser & Skin Clinics, we only use the most advanced, non-invasive and up-to-date medical-grade technology in our Laser Resurfacing treatments. The Q-Switched laser is an adaptable premium-engineered aesthetic machine designed for the treatment of a wide variety of skin conditions and concerns.

    Q-Switched lasers are known for their photomechanical effects, featuring a combination of high power and extremely short pulse widths (less than 20 nanoseconds – one nanosecond is equivalent to one billionth of a second). The effects of the laser energy are due to shockwaves caused at the target, rather than intense heat. This unique process safely breaks down and shatters small particles of ink or pigmentation, which are then removed by the body's immune system. Due to the nature of Q-Switched Laser Resurfacing the treatment gently heats up the skin, also know as 'bulk heating', resulting in stimulation rather than the destruction of collagen fibres. Therefore Q-Switched Laser targets a wide variety of skin imperfections, including tattoos, deep pigmentation, facial redness, uneven skin tone and ageing.

    Your highly trained and experienced therapist will determine and recommend the frequency of Laser Facial treatments you will need based on your individual skin type and skin concerns. The treatment is non-invasive, almost painless and can be completed in less than 15 minutes.

    BENEFITS OF LASER FACIAL

    The benefits of a laser Facial treatment extends to many skin types, conditions and concerns. A Laser Facial Treatment at Australian Laser & Skin Clinics utilises laser energy with long wavelengths that is able to penetrate deeply into the skin, minimising destruction of the epidermis and preventing melanogenesis (the production of melanin). The benefit of this is that it is safe and effective for most skin types for the treatment of pigmentation, wrinkles, acne and skin texture. A laser Facial treatment may even be recommended on scarring as it helps to support healthy collagen production. A Laser Facial with the professional team at Australian Laser & Skin Clinics is a suitable option for those that are preparing their skin for an event, want to naturally turn back the clock or improve the texture and tone of their skin.

    PIGMENTATION

    WHAT IS IT? WHAT ARE CAUSES/ SYMPTOMS and SIGNS?

    Hyperpigmentation can be an unwanted consequence of internal physical factors and external factors which can include hormonal changes, sun exposure, skin type, trauma and the skin's natural ageing process. Presenting as areas of uneven skin tone, darkness, age spots or freckles, pigmentation occurs when excess melanin (skin pigment) has been stimulated. Factors that may contribute to this process can be divided into external, internal and genetic triggers:

    WHAT CAUSES PIGMENTATION?

    • Sun damage
    • Genetics
    • Skin type
    • Hormones/Pregnancy
    • Skin trauma/Injury
    • Birthmarks
    • Environmental exposure
    • Environmental changes
    • Friction
    • Uric acid (sweat burn)
    • Trauma, medications and medical conditions

    WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PIGMENTATION?

    Epidermal Pigmentation (Superficial) usually affects lighter skin tones and is usually caused by sun damage. Some examples of Superficial pigmentation include:

    • Sunspots
    • Age spots
    • Freckles

    Dermal Pigmentation (Deeper) which can be caused by trauma, medications and hormonal factors, can present itself as:

    • Pigmented acne scarring
    • Birthmarks
    • Chloasma/Melasma

    Hyperpigmentation is not just restricted to the facial area and commonly presents on the shoulders, neck, décolletage, backs of the hands and bikini area. Pigmentation affects all skin colours and all skin types and conditions. Any form of hyperpigmentation may be further aggressed by sun exposure, and the daily use of an SPF30 or superb sunscreen on all affected areas is crucial.

    TREATMENT SOLUTIONS:

    PHOTO REJUVENATION

    Photo Rejuvenation an extremely effective treatment against many forms of pigmentation. Performed with our Medical Grade Intense Pulsed Light Laser or IPL, Photo Rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that uses light to absorb melanin (the dark pigment) and haemoglobin (the red colour in your blood vessels). This light converts to heat, which damages the target cells without disrupting the surface of the skin. After treatment of pigmented areas they will go darker sometimes almost black, then will fall off within 7 to 28 days (depending on the location of the body) or it will just gradually fade.

    CHEMICAL PEELS

    Chemical Peels are an exceptional choice for the treatment of hyperpigmentation. The Australian Laser & Skin Clinics offers many different types of chemical peels that are specifically formulated to help even out the overall skin tone, treat hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, while leaving the skin hydrated.

    SKIN NEEDLING

    Skin Needling is highly effective for treating hyperpigmentation on dark skin colours. This multitasking treatment creates rejuvenating micro channels into the skin to promote a more balanced and normalised cellular function. As melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) are directly targeted, a repair and corrective process encourage an even skin tone creating a radiant appearance.

    LOW-LEVEL LASER THERAPY (LLLT)

    LLLT is a medical-grade cold laser that reduces the formation of hyperpigmentation without heat or discomfort. LLLT works within the skin to balance over-active melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) and sun-damaged cells. After a series of treatments, the complexion cumulatively becomes clearer and more radiant with increased luminosity. LLLT is another treatment that is highly effective for treating hyperpigmentation on dark skin colours.

    COSMELAN

    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

    Laser Facial uses Q-Switched Laser technology which uses a 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

    Carbon Laser Peel is the application of specialised laser energy to reduce visible skin age spots, 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.

    Laser pigmentation removal

    We all love to spend time outdoors, but as we get older, we can develop excess pigmentation in the form of age spots, skin sun spots or freckles. Excessive exposure to sunlight, environmental factors, hormones, injuries, medications, acne and your skin type, may all contribute to the development of dark spots, hyperpigmentation and freckles. In addition, brown patches known as melasma can appear on the face due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. Pigmentation is usually first noticeable on the hands, as we tend to forget to apply sun protection to our hands over our lifetimes. The skin of the face, neck and décolleté are also places where signs of the ageing show earlier, as they also receive heavy sun expose. (Note: if hyperpigmentation is found in areas that are not normally exposed to the sun, it's advisable to have this checked out by a doctor.)

    If you're wondering how to get rid of sunspots, freckles or other types of pigmentation, Medix Skincare & Laser Clinic can help. We offer pigmentation removal using the UltraPlus VPL laser system. Treatments at our sunspot clinic are safe and non-invasive and work by inducing a healing response which lightens the appearance of pigmented skin without damaging it.

    What is VPL laser pigmentation/freckle removal?

    VPL laser pigmentation removal is designed so that each light pulse consists of a sequence of rapid shorter pulses. These variable pulses ensure controlled absorption of laser light by the melanin in the skin, while the surrounding skin remains cool. The excess melanin in the hyper-pigmented area is broken down and cleared away by the waste disposal system of the body.

    VPL laser produces excellent results for the face, hands and décolleté. Our sun damage treatment not only clears pigmentation and thread veins but will also remove freckles and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The heat stimulates the skin to go into "repair mode", whereby the increase in blood flow to the region brings in fresh supplies of oxygen and nutrients to the cells and stimulates the production of collagen.

    What happens during VPL laser pigmentation removal?

    Written consent from a doctor is essential before commencing laser pigmentation removal or laser freckle removal. First, the treated area is cleared of makeup and hairs. A cooling gel is then applied in order to provide the required optical coupling and to maintain cooling on the skin being treated. The VPL laser handpiece is then passed over the skin of the targeted area with no pressure. During the skin pigmentation treatment, the bright light of the laser is released. This light travels through the skin and heats the dermal tissues without disruption or removal of the outer epidermal layers of the skin. This results in a visible reduction in unwanted pigmentation.

    The longer wavelengths of the VPL laser light penetrate deeply, stimulating the cells to produce extra collagen, which leads to a tightening of overly pigmented areas. Depending on your skin sensitivity, you may experience a slight stinging sensation in the area treated during the procedure, but there is far less discomfort than with laser or IPL treatments.

    Since the melanin strongly absorbs the light in the epidermis, laser pigmentation treatment is only suitable for people with skin types 1-4 with no significant tan. If the pigment in question is due to sun damage, as on the back of the hands and the décolleté, then it should easily respond, along with superficial freckles. Pigment sitting deeper in the dermis is not likely to respond.

    The hands, arms and décolleté usually respond well to laser sun spot removal. After about half an hour, the treated areas will start to darken. By 24 hours, they will turn even darker and may crust before gradually fading or flaking until the pigments have disappeared or lightened. The area is renewed after 10 to 14 days.

    Are there any contraindications for VPL or laser treatment?

    • Taking Accutane or similar medication
    • Taking blood-thinning medication
    • Pregnancy or breastfeeding during the first few months
    • Any injectable or fillers in the last 72 hours
    • Cold sore or fever blister without premedication
    • Facial peels or waxing within 7 to 14 days
    • Having type I diabetes
    • Recent sun exposure or spray tanning or solarium
    • Skin cancer
    • Epilepsy
    • Photosensitising drugs
    • Wearing a pacemaker
    • Allergies
    • Lack of skin temperature

    How many are VPL laser pigmentation treatments recommended?

    Sometimes one session is sufficient, but three or four may be required spaced at least 4 weeks apart.

    What should I do before and after VPL pigmentation or freckle removal?

    A doctor's written consent is required before the treatment can be given.

    It's important to avoid direct sun exposure, spray tanning or sunbeds for 6 weeks before and after the treatment. If being exposed to the sun is unavoidable, a high SPF sunscreen should be applied. You should also avoid waxing, peeling or any kind of skin resurfacing for 2 to 3 weeks before and after your pigmentation or freckle removal in Melbourne.

    Don't do any heavy or sweaty workouts within 24 hours of the treatment, and don't have a hot shower for 24 hours. Treated areas should be cared for by gentle washing with soap and water without scrubbing or rubbing. Don't scratch or pick the area, as this can lead to scars. Don't apply any makeup until swelling and discomfort is resolved, and don't do the dishes for 3 to 4 days after pigmentation or sunspot removal on the hands. It's also recommended that you wear cotton gloves for driving.

    Are there any side effects of VPL laser treatment?

    The pigmented areas will darken immediately or during the first few hours and will remain dark for a few days before being shed from the skin surface. Following your pigmentation or skin sun spots treatment, you may feel quite sunburnt, and the treated area may be red for up to several hours. Some clients may experience swelling, which goes away within a few days. Treated pigmented areas may develop a crust, which can last from 3 days to 2-3 weeks. A cool compress immediately after treatment will relieve any swelling or burnt feeling. Applying a cooling gel such as aloe vera or tea tree can help, but don't use any products with anti-inflammatory properties, as these can interfere with the pigmentation removal process. Taking antioxidants and vitamins A, E and C can be beneficial.

    To discover our competitive prices or make a booking, call 1300 845 859. We also offer services in anti-wrinkle treatment and skin resurfacing.

    What is IPL skin rejuvenation?

    We all want clear skin, but nature has a way of sabotaging us with frustrating imperfections, especially as we age. Fortunately, skin rejuvenation has advanced beyond the painful procedures of the past. The Palomar Rejuvelux process used by Blossomed IPL offers comfortable and effective photofacials for the treatment of sun damage and visible facial veins.

    How does Palomar Pulsed Light work?

    During the photorejuvenation process, the Palomar Rejuvelux handpieces emit pulses of light into the skin. The light is absorbed by the pigment in sunspots and the blood in visible vessels and is then converted to heat. The heat dissolves the cells that create the pigment and shrinks the vessels.

    Treat multiple conditions

    When you have your skin or facial rejuvenation using the Rejuvelux Process, pulses of concentrated light are used to clear:

    • Sun Damage: Wide areas of pigmentation on the face, chest and arms
    • Sunspots: Individual pigmented lesions, also known as age spots.
    • Rosacea: General inflammation of the cheeks and face.
    • Facial Spider Veins: Individual vessels, which can be red, blue or purple in colour.
    • Improves skin tone and texture and stimulates collagen and elastin production.

    What should I expect after treatment?

    Immediately after photo rejuvenation treatment, you can expect a mild sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling. This usually lasts 2-24 hours and can be soothed with a cold gel or ice packs.

    • Sunspots / Sun Damage: The sunspots will darken after treatment and be naturally shed from the skin within 1-2 weeks.
    • Rosacea: Skin tone will be more normal, with less pronounced redness within a week after treatment.
    • Facial Spider Veins: Vessels may disappear after treatment, or they may appear darker and then fully or partially fade within 10-14 days.

    Typically, several sessions will be necessary to achieve complete clearance of sunspots, rosacea and vessels.

    The SaltFacial™️ is a medical-grade treatment that exfoliates the skin with all-natural sea salt—essentially, it's the ultimate answer to picture-perfect skin. The three-in-one skin renewal restores, replenishes, and rejuvenates the skin through a three-step process. Dr. Diamond explained that since the machine is newer to the market, his office is one of the few places to receive the treatment in Melbourne.

    The Process:

    Step One: Restore (Exfoliation)

    Using pure microfine sea salt, the next-generation exfoliating machine gently but effectively removes the top layer of the skin (stratum corneum). Different from other microdermabrasion machines, the SaltFacial L'avantage™️ uses a closed loop of pressure, so there's no suction, which makes it safer than other technology. As you can see in the photo, Candace traced my face in a grid-like pattern with the machine, leaving a residue of the salt on my face.

    Benefits of using salt include antibacterial, antimicrobial, calming, and balancing effects, which make it great for acne as well as dullness. Since salt retains water, it bloats skin cells, leaving skin deeply hydrated and plump, which also helps lessen fine lines.

    Step Two: Replenish (Ultrasound)

    After exfoliating my face, Dr. Diamond's aesthetician used the exclusive L'avantage 3 MHz ultrasound module to stimulate vital nutrients back into my skin. The ultrasound opens up cells to accept hydration and push products up to two times deeper into the skin tissue. This step also promotes healthier skin texture and helps to encourage collagen reformation (read: firmer, tighter skin).

    Step Three: Rejuvenate (LED Light)

    The last step in the SaltFacial™️ is LED light therapy, which is great because it can be tailored to your skin type. Blue light helps with inflammation and kills bacteria, and red light promotes collagen production and aids in healing (such as bruises and pain). While under the light, you can take a mini snooze, relax, and enjoy the warmth of the phototherapy

    Result:

    You can feel the benefits immediately after my treatment, but it wasn't until the next day when I could truly see a difference in my skin. Not only was my complexion incredibly glowy, but my skin felt softer than it ever has before—proving the SaltFacial™️ is the ultimate answer to keeping your skin hydrated and plump. To keep skin in an optimal state, we recommend SaltFacial™️ once a month. My skin has definitely been spoiled by introducing this treatment to my regimen.

    Cosmetic Tattoo and Beauty

    Cosmetic Tattoo and training are at the heart of what we do.

    Our experienced team also provide tattoo removal and various skin treatments. 

    Laser Pigmentation Removal

    Our laser pigmentation removal can help remove a variety of epidermal and dermal pigmentation types, including:

    • lentigines
    •  ephelides
    •  epidermal melanosis
    •  nevus of ota
    •  nevi
    •  Mongolian spot
    •  melasma and deeper pigment

    The treatment works by applying an intense burst of light at the pigmented lesions, which then triggers healing of the upper dermis. Following treatment, new collagen formation occurs, and over time, the pigmentation will lighten and fade.

    The technology allows us to target specific pigment without damaging any surrounding tissue. 

    Cosmetic Tattoo is at the Heart of Our Business

    We have built our business and our reputation around cosmetic Tattoo. 

    We use two different methods of cosmetic tattooing. The first is known as Microblading and is used for 'Hair Stroke Brows'. This technique is done by hand with a small disposable tool which has tiny needles in a row, and the skin is lightly scratched into hair strokes. The pigment is pushed into the strokes to make them darker, and this is the most natural technique to get the best natural-looking brows.

    The second method involves a Digital Tattoo Machine. This method is used for 'Powder/Ombré brows, 'Eyeliner', 'Lip' and 'Areola' tattoos.

    Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) causes skin darkening and discolouration that show up as spots, or as large patches on a person's body. This is because cells that normally produce brown pigment evenly across your skin go into overproduction and produce too much melanin.

    Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

    This is due to an inflammatory reaction in, or to an injury to, the skin. If the excess melanin is produced in the upper layer of skin (epidermis), the pigmentation colour is a darker shade of brown. If the excess melanin is produced in the lower layer of skin (the dermis), a grey or blue discolouration becomes visible.

    Although PIH can occur in all skin types, it is more common in people of Africa, Asia, Latin, and indigenous Indian background, and can affect men and women. Areas of the skin affected by PIH correspond with areas of previous inflammation or injury. When dark changes in your skin's colour remain after the underlying problem has gone away, you have PIH. The most common causes are injuries such as scratches, burns, cuts, or bruises. Cause of PIH examples of which include:

    • skin infections
    • laser treatments
    • allergic reactions
    • mechanical injuries
    • reactions to medications
    • phototoxic eruptions
    • trauma (e.g. burns)
    • inflammatory reactions

    Ordinary conditions such as acne or pimples are a very common cause of PIH in individuals with brown skin. PIH can also be caused by injury to the skin resulting from sunburns, surgery or cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, lasers and cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen treatments).

    Treatment

    Usually, hyperpigmentation will gradually lessen over time, and normal skin colour will return. However, this is a long process that may take up to 12 -24 months or longer. But for those clients who wish to remove PIH faster, the Medlite Q-switch laser method has proven to be one of the best treatments for such condition.

    Clients should be advised to use a good broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to reduce further darkening.

    Whatever treatment option you choose, understand that improvement will take time. In our experience, great results could be archived within 8 – 10 weekly treatments.

    If you suspect that you may have PIH, it is important to search for the underlying cause and treat that cause. For example, when the discolouration is caused by a problem such as an acne, the acne must first be eliminated or treated before PIH can effectively be treated. Every time a new blemish develops and then resolves, a new area of PIH will develop. Therefore, it is crucial to minimise all new outbreaks with appropriate medications. Only then can the treatment for the PIH be effective.

    At City laser Clinic, we understand the distress and embarrassment that skin lesions can cause, particularly the darker blemishes and especially when covering larger parts of the visible skin. City laser Clinic laser therapists have found that the MedLite Q-Switch Laser operating in the 1064nm wavelength laser mode is the most effective resource for treatment of PIH.

    As with all Laser therapy treatments, the frequency and number of treatments will depend on your skin type, and the area affected and the size of that area. Contact us to arrange a FREE laser consultation to discuss a laser treatment plan that suits your needs.

    Reverse the Effects of Photoaging

    Pigmented lesions – unsightly dark patches on the skin – are typically caused by repeated sun exposure or aging. Regardless of the cause, pigmented lesions arise where there is a high concentration of melanin under the skin. Skin pigmentation can present itself in a number of ways; from hyperpigmentation (darkened patches of skin caused by hormonal changes) through to excessive exposure to the sun (sunspots) and hypopigmentation (patches of skin that are lighter in colour to your normal skin tone). With the help of skin pigmentation treatment at O'Laze, you can even out your skin tone for a smoother, more balanced appearance. Book an appointment at our pigmentation treatment clinic today to discuss your needs with our friendly staff.

    Laser Treatment for Pigmentation that Gets Results

    You might have heard of laser treatment for hair removal before, but you might not have heard of laser pigmentation treatment. Cynosure's advanced ICON™ laser treatment for pigmentation treats sun-damaged and aging skin quickly and effectively. Using a precision hand-held device, the experienced technicians at O'Laze can deliver short, painless pulses of light to the afflicted area without the need for topical or numbing agents. Procedures can range from laser freckle removal to open pores treatment. The precision wavelength and pulse-width setting in O'Laze's state-of-the-art laser technology sharply raise the temperature in the highly-concentrated melanin; enough to splinter the abnormal cells. The cells surrounding the target area remain unharmed. The body then replaces the coagulated cells with new, healthy cells propagated by the surrounding untreated area.

    The result? Smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin and an immediate change in skin discolouration in just one to five treatments.

    Suitable for:

    • Age Spots
    • Sun Spots
    • Freckles
    • Blemishes
    • Uneven skin tone
    • Open Pores

    If you're looking for the best treatment for pigmentation on the face, arms, back or anywhere else on the body, make an appointment with O'Laze today. Our clinic can also help you with a range of other cosmetic services, including full body laser hair removal, non-invasive varicose vein treatment and laser spider vein removal.

    Laser for Hyperpigmentation

    The term hyperpigmentation is used to describe the darkening of the skin due to increased production of melanin. This can take many forms, including age spots (sun spots), freckles, and patches of skin that have generally darkened over time.

    A common and harmless condition, hyperpigmentation can occur due to a variety of reasons. Most people start to see darker spots when they have been exposed to sunlight excessively, while others are genetically predisposed to skin hyperpigmentation. Hormone fluctuation and general ageing can also bring about the appearance of hyperpigmentation.

    If you're looking for hyperpigmentation laser treatment in Melbourne, make an appointment with Skiin today.

    Why Come to Skiin?

    Our hyperpigmentation laser treatment clinic consists of a team of highly experienced and qualified doctors, nurses, aesthetic physicians, dermal clinicians, and other medical support staff. Welcoming men and women of all ages, we're committed to delivering the highest standard of patient care – putting your needs first while ensuring you feel comfortable and at ease when being treated with a laser for hyperpigmentation.

    Our laser hyperpigmentation removal uses light energy to stimulate skin renewal, targeting the melanin in pigmentation and breaking down the particles to facilitate natural removal of waste products from the body. As our laser treatment for hyperpigmentation is non-invasive, you'll be able to carry on with your daily routine without discomfort or hassle.

    How Can We Help?

    Cosmelan

    Developed in Spain, 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. 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 Genesis

    Laser Genesis gently heats the upper dermis level of the skin to stimulate the growth of collagen. Collagen is the structural protein found in connective tissues and is an important component of the skin, providing strength and a degree of elasticity which gives skin a youthful appearance. When the treatment is required to reduce redness, additional heat is generated in the dilated capillaries to 'close down' the tiny veins and capillaries that cause a red appearance on the skin. The treatment produces no side effects for most patients but requires multiple sessions to achieve the best results. Most people require a series of at least 6 treatments, carried out every 4 weeks, to obtain optimal results. Please note that you will not see immediate results, as the procedure has a gradual but consistent effect. Our Laser Genesis Machine is imported from the USA and provides the best care for your skin.

    IPL

    Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a technology used to perform various skin treatments, aesthetically and therapeutically. Treatments include Hair Removal and Photo Rejuvenation. Skin concerns for IPL include – Skin Pigmentation, Sun Damage, Broken Capillaries and Thread Veins. IPL can also alleviate dermatologic diseases. The primary goal of IPL is to make the skin tone or colour more even. Another more subtle goal of IPL is to add small amounts of collagen back into the skin near its surface. This will not reduce wrinkles but will affect the texture of the skin.

    Customised Peels

    Customised Skin Peels keep the skin looking and feeling its best at any age. Skin Peels are great for treating sun-damaged skin and bringing dull, weathered skins back to life.

    We use the best Skin Peels to suit your skin needs.

    At Skiin, we offer a range of customised skin peels to treat skin conditions as follows.

    • Dull tired skin
    • Uneven skin texture and tone
    • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
    • Enlarged Pores
    • Acne Skins
    • Sun Damage and Photo Damage Skins
    • Melasma
    • Actinic and Seborrhoea Keratosis
    • Hyper Pigmentation

    LED Therapy

    LED therapy is a pain-free, non-invasive, soothing and rejuvenating skin treatment. This treatment will help treat many skin conditions such as acne breakouts, fine lines and wrinkles, post inflammatory scarring and rosacea. It is also fantastic for before or after laser treatment and injectables. Our Machine at Skiin is classed as the most powerful unit in the world in total power output, providing instant results.

    Home Care Products

    Skiin can offer a team of highly trained skin experts to analyse your skincare needs and develop a program to suit you and your budget. Make the most of your time and effort by using the best available products that can achieve great results. We stock the Mesoestetic skincare range as well as Medik8 skin products.

    IPL Photo Rejuvenation (Limelight)

    Skin pigmentation and redness often develop naturally as time goes by. This can be caused by numerous factors, such as sun damage and dietary behaviours as well as genetics and ageing. Fortunately, safe cosmetic procedures are available that are capable of diffusing redness and pigmentation.

    At SKIIN, we're proud to offer IPL photorejuvenation in Melbourne for clients who are looking to restore the natural complexion of their skin. A series of IPL sessions can effectively reduce the visible signs of pigmentation, redness, improve overall skin texture, laser hair removal and tone and assist with general skin rejuvenation.

    At SKIIN we use Cutera's Limelight to perform our IPL laser treatment, which is one of the best on the market in terms of equipment and treatment options. Our IPL treatment can also be combined with other intensive treatments to ensure further they achieve their desired end result effectively.

    Who is IPL suitable for?

    IPL is suitable for clients wanting to treat pigmentation, rosacea, skin discolouration and unwanted hair. It can also be an effective anti-aging option, depending on the client's concern.

    What is IPL?

    IPL is a laser treatment designed to help treat/ improve the appearance of sunspots, rosacea, age spots, pigmentation and skin texture.

    How does IPL work?

    A broad spectrum of light is transmitted with the IPL handpiece through a small, smooth, transparent light guide which is gently placed over your skin. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body's natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even tone and texture, and a more youthful appearance.

    How many treatments are required?

    A series of treatments are required for longer-lasting results, and this will vary depending on your individual concerns.

    Is there any downtime?

    There is little downtime with an IPL treatment, and you may experience some redness and sunburn-like feel to the skin. However, this will only generally last for 24 hours.

    Essentials before having IPL:

    • Cosmeceutical skincare preparation
    • Strictly no tanning or excessive sun exposure
    • Avoid waxing and irritants on the skin
    • Notify the clinic of any medical changes

    Things to avoid after IPL:

    • Sun exposure
    • Cosmetic tattooing
    • Strenuous exercise
    • Chlorinated water/ saunas
    • Harsh skin products (aftercare products will be advised pre-treatment)

    What is KTP Laser & How Does it Work?

    Lasers with specific wavelengths are absorbed by two of the body's own natural chemicals – Melanin in the pigmented areas and Haemoglobin in the red blood cells. Both these pigments convert the light energy into heat. This heat is used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and to damage the walls of the vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage is seen.

    Hyperpigmentation is best treated with either pigment lasers or IPL. The clinician will examine the skin to identify the plane on which the pigment cluster lies. For instance, freckles are usually on the surface – thus called epidermal pigmentation. Melasma and sunspots, on the other hand, can be in the deeper skin layers – thus called dermal or mixed pigments. Once this relation is made, a suitable laser for hyperpigmentation with a specific wavelength can be chosen for pigmentation removal in Melbourne. With IPL, filters can be applied to choose a range of wavelengths to target multiple planes; however, they usually act more superficially in comparison to a laser.

    Laser energy is applied to the skin and is immediately absorbed by the rogue melanin particles. The heat generated from the laser impact causes the pigment to heat up and shatter into finer fragments. These fragments are later scavenged and eventually removed by the immune cells and the lymphatic system. Some pigments may be recalcitrant and may require multiple sessions before they eventually resolve and leave behind a complexion that's even in tone and colour.

    In general, epidermal pigments are easier removed as compared to the deeper and more stubborn dermal pigments. Dermal pigments may require a combination of lasers to target its numerous planes of placement.

    Spider veins are best treated with laser vascular lesion removal. The laser energy produces heat, which selectively destroys the abnormal veins. The laser energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by superficial blood vessels. The heat generated from the laser coagulates the blood inside the vessel, causing it to collapse and seal.

    Over the next few weeks, the vessel will lighten or completely disappear, and all the blood will be removed by the body's scavenging cells. If the blood supply to the veins is strong, the vessels may re-establish blood flow again, making it necessary for several treatments. Laser treatments allow the delivery of a precise dosage of energy to each blood vessel without injuring any nearby structures. However, laser treatment is ineffective for deeper and larger veins.

    What Does KTP Laser Treat?

    There is a wide range of conditions that this kind of laser therapy can treat, including age spots, freckles, epidermal melasma, ultraviolet dyschromia, broken capillaries, diffuse redness, rosacea, cherry angiomas and salmon patch birthmarks. If you have broken capillaries, laser treatment can be very effective. You may also like to try rosacea laser treatment for general redness, or birthmark laser treatment for removal of long-term pigmentation. Laser vascular lesion removal is also possible.

    What is Skin Pigmentation?

    Skin pigmentation (hyperpigmentation) is a condition where the skin is darker. This can occur in small patches or cover much larger areas of the body. Example are freckles, age spots, sunspots, dyschromia, dark skin patches, melasma, chloasma, birthmarks, Mongolian spots, café au lait spots and sun damage.

    Patients need to realise that pigmentation cannot be cured permanently. There are multiple factors – from lifestyle, hormones, genetics to environmental stress – that influence pigmentary change, and these may deter complete resolution. In addition to a procedure for pigmentation removal in Melbourne, such as laser for hyperpigmentation to improve tone and colour, a healthy lifestyle and a positive mindset are equally crucial.

    Laser Treatment

    At City Laser Clinic we understand the distress and embarrassment that skin blemishes such as melasma can cause. City Laser Clinic laser therapists have established that the Q-Switch laser is the most effective resource for treatment of skin blemishes such as melasma, because of the functional ability to select and deliver the laser wavelength best suited to the depth of the discolouration.

    City Laser Clinic therapists have the experience, training and qualifications to provide safe and effective treatment of all types of skin pigmentations. The City Laser Clinic laser therapists do sometimes need to refer clients to their General Medical Practitioner for assessment and when in doubt will not treat until a Medical Clearance is provided. As with all Laser therapy treatments, the frequency and number of laser treatments will depend on your skin type, the area affected and the size of that area.

    Contact us to arrange a free laser consultation to discuss a laser treatment plan that suits your needs. Our experience shows that 8-10 treatments weekly will ensure significant improvement and in some cases complete fading of melasma. One maintenance laser treatment every 8 weeks is recommended to maintain achieved results.

    What will my skin look like after the treatment?

    The surrounded skin will look slightly pink, and the treated lesion may appear darker. The redness will subside within 2 – 4 hours. If your treatment required downtime, slight redness might remain for a few days (3 – 5 days). It can be easily be covered with makeup. The redness will eventually subside.

    Are there any Precautions to take during treatment?

    Melasma is a dermal condition and has a tendency to reappear, especially due to sun exposure. Meticulous use of SPF is a must! As with all laser treatment, you must avoid exposure to direct sunlight before treatment, during treatment and for some weeks following treatment. At City Laser Clinic, our experienced, qualified laser therapists will advise you based on your skin type and the nature of the treatments that you are receiving.

    What does skin pigmentation mean?

    Pigmentation is the generalised term to changes in skin tone from a range of causes. Skin pigmentation can be found all over the body, but generally, appear on the face.

    Our skin gets its colour from a pigment called melanin. If your body produces too much melanin, your skin will get darker. And if your body doesn't create enough melanin, your skin gets lighter.

    What causes skin pigmentation?

    Sun exposure and UV damage are two of the largest causes of pigmentation. It's often the main cause of wrinkles, spots, and sags we consider a natural part of ageing. Over time, the sun's UV rays damage skin fibres called elastin.

    Other causes of skin pigmentation include thermal injuries, inflammation — even hormonal imbalances. Environmental factors such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, and chemicals can also damage the surface of your skin.

    What treatments are available?

    The Mesoestetic Cosmelan and Dermamelan treatments brighten brown patches and skin discolourations by pausing the amount of melanin your skin produces for the duration of the application. Afterwards, melanin production begins once more. Clients will need to be vigilant about applying SPF 50 (or higher) sunscreen for 3-6 months after. We do recommend continuing sunscreen application daily, if you're worried about skin pigmentation, as UV damage is a major exacerbating factor.

    Our industry-leading laser technologies range from 755 nanometres (nm) single wavelengths to Fraxel dual laser, and the RevLite laser (which uses four wavelengths). Book a consultation today to find out more.

    THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE HAVING LASER TREATMENT 

    Laser treatment cannot get rid of a scar. 

    Thanks to recent advancements in medicine, lasers are becoming a dermatologist's go-to treatment for many scars. Laser treatment can:

    • Prevent a raised scar from forming after surgery
    • Reduce scar pain and itch
    • Increase your range of motion if a scar limits movement

    Laser treatment can also make a scar less noticeable, but it cannot get rid of a scar. When you have laser scar treatment, you're replacing one scar with another less-noticeable spot.

    Your results depend primarily on the skills of the person performing the laser treatment. 

    Dermatologists are at the forefront of researching and treating scars with lasers.

    In the hands of a board-certified dermatologist, laser treatment can safely treat many types of scars.

    When the person performing your laser treatment lacks medical expertise and specialised knowledge of the skin, laser treatment may not give you the results you seek. It can even be dangerous.

    A medical consultation is crucial before any laser treatment.

     If someone promises to treat your scar before providing a medical consultation, walk away.

    Give your dermatologist a list of the medications and supplements you take. To heal well and prevent the laser from scarring your skin, you may need to stop taking something for a while.

    It's essential for the person performing your laser treatment to know about you. Everyone is unique. To treat a scar effectively, the person performing your laser treatment must consider your skin type, characteristics of your spot, and your overall health.

    During the medical consultation, tell your dermatologist if you:

    • Get cold sores
    • Have any medical condition, including diabetes
    • Smoke
    • Take any medications or supplements

    It's also essential for your dermatologist to know what results you expect from treatment. Be honest. 

    Sun protection is crucial before and after laser treatment.

     If you show up for laser treatment with a tan or sunburn, your dermatologist cannot treat you. Using a laser could cause a severe burn or discolor your skin.

    After having laser treatment, you'll need to protect your skin from the sun until your skin heals. If the sun's harmful rays hit your treated skin, you can develop another scar.

    You may need to make a few lifestyle changes before treatment. 

    To heal well and get the best results from laser treatment, dermatologists recommend that patients:

    • Quit smoking for at least 2 weeks before laser treatment.
    • Stop taking vitamin E, aspirin, and other medications and supplements that can delay healing.
    • Stop using skin care products that contain a retinoid or glycolic acid for 2 to 4 weeks.
    • Take medicine to prevent getting cold sores if you're prone to developing cold sores.
    • Avoid the sun, tanning bed, or sunlamp. You cannot be treated if you have a tan or sunburn.

    Your treatment plan may include more than laser treatment.

     To give patients the best results, dermatologists often use more than one treatment for scars. For example, if a patient has deep acne scars, a dermatologist may treat the wounds with a laser. The patient may also get a filler.

    You may need more than one laser treatment. 

    To give a patient long-lasting results and the most improvement, a dermatologist may schedule a series of laser treatments. This is often necessary when using a type of laser called a non-ablative laser. You won't have downtime with this laser, but to see the desired results, you may need a few laser treatments.

    After laser treatment, you'll need to care for the treated area at home. 

    Following your dermatologist's instructions for at-home care after laser treatment will help you see the best results and prevent possible side effects.

    Results take time to appear. 

    It can take months to see the results from laser scar treatment, and you may notice little improvement at first.

    Insurance may not cover the cost. 

    Laser scar treatment can ease the pain and itch that scars sometimes cause. If a scar limits movement, laser treatment can help you move more freely. Still, insurance providers consider laser treatments cosmetic treatments. Health insurance generally does not cover the cost of cosmetic treatments.

    If you're considering laser scar treatment, the best way to find out if it's right for you is to meet with a board-certified dermatologist. You can find one who specialises in laser procedures at, Find a dermatologist - Select the Specialty "laser procedures".
