Your Questions Answered
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Your laser technician will flash the light into the skin where the pigmentation or brown spot appears. This causes the pigment to heat up and crust. The pigment will start to go darker over the next few hours (up to 24 hours). A very light micro-crust forms on the surface of the skin. This can look like tiny speckles of mud, or like the whole patch has gone very dark, and is a good sign. The pigment will then flake off over the next 3-10 days, leaving the area considerably improved and lighter than before.
Any pigmentation that is still visible can then be treated again, approximately 4 weeks later. However the lighter the patch that is left, the harder it is to remove. The good news is that because we have more than 1 laser device, we can switch to a different laser to go deeper into the skin on the 2nd or 3rd treatment where necessary.
WHEN WILL I SEE AN IMPROVEMENT?
You will see an improvement between 1 to 3 weeks after the treatment. The tiny crusts of pigment which flake off are sometimes so small that you will not notice them flaking away.
We take photos before treatments, so that we are able to compare the difference weeks later, and to be sure of an improvement. After laser the pigment or blemish will be improved and lighter than before, however it is very difficult to tell you exactly how much lighter. Some blemishes will virtually disappear in one treatment whereas others will require 3 or more.
DOES IT HURT?
The sensation is like an elastic band being twanged at the skin, or a hot pin prick. It is a very short lived feeling – and is unpleasant for a split second – but then it disappears. This sensation is combated by the use of a Cryo cooler, which is a machine we have invested in to cool and calm the skin during and after laser treatments. The Cryo is an excellent tool to make the treatment comfortable, and is more effective and suitable than ice packs which are more commonplace in other clinics.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
Immediately after laser your skin can look pink and slightly swollen. Your skin can feel slightly tingly, a little like sunburn, but this often goes down within hours. Most clients go straight back to work the next day.
You also need to bear in mind that the areas of pigment will go considerably darker, sometimes even black. This can be covered by good make-up, but you probably won’t want to be attending an event or special occasion just after this treatment, until the pigment flakes off.
