Dr Darren McKeown offers effective laser treatment for skin pigmentation in Glasgow

Skin pigmentation such as freckles, age spots or blemishes from sun damage can negatively impact the appearance of our skin complexion and tone. Thankfully they can be effectively removed using the latest Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology.

IPL laser treatments are considered superior methods for pigmentation removal and overall skin rejuvenation compared to chemical peels because they are more precise. This makes it easier to target small, specific spots on the skin.

Dr Darren McKeown offers photorejuvenation treatments for various skin pigmentation issues using cutting edge IPL technology.

How do IPL machines work?

Laser Pigmentation Removal Glasgow

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is the same advanced technology used for laser hair removal.

IPL treatments for pigmentation works by releasing small, sharp bursts of filtered light into the skin. The light is rapidly absorbed by the high concentration of melanin found in patches of uneven pigmentation. This generates heat and destroys the pigmentation causing cells. The discolouration rises to the skin’s surface and eventually fades or flakes off.

The dermis can then begin the healing process and generation of pigmentation free skin.

IPL is most commonly used for freckles, sun spots, acne scarring, and age spots (liver spots) on the face, neck, hands and body.

Do IPL treatments only remove age spots?

Laser Pigmentation Removal GlasgowThis type of laser treatment, not to be confused with CO2RE laser resurfacing, is designed to treat hyperpigmentation or dark patches that result from sun damage (sun spots) or acne scarring. We can also advise you on how IPL can help with birthmark removal in Glasgow.

Many patients choose this for aesthetic reasons or to improve their skin complexion because it is effective at rejuvenating skin cells on the face right down to the hands and feet.

How Is The Treatment Carried Out?

A layer of gel is applied to the skin and a laser handpiece is then applied to the skin. A short burst of light is released as the applicator is moved across the skin until the entire area has been treated. The length of the treatment depends on the size of the blemish.

The treatment uses light, so you will need to wear protective eyewear during the treatments to prevent any damage to your eyes.

The doctors and staff at our Glasgow clinic will answer all your questions and ensure you are fully prepared for your pigmentation treatment once you have booked your appointment.

Am I Suitable For Treatment?

Most people are suitable for laser treatment except those who have very dark skin (more natural melanin) or who have a current suntan. Large dark moles that could have a more serious diagnosis should also not be treated with laser, nor should moles that cover a large surface area.

IPL treatments are ideal for smaller patches of pigmentation and superficial pigmentation, such as markings related to sun damage. The Aesthetic Medicine Institute offers pigmentation removal treatment for melanin-related marks, age spots, and freckle removal in Glasgow.

During your consultation, we can discuss whether other laser treatments or chemical peels will suit your skin and achieve better results. This is based on melanin, colour, and types of pigmentation.

How Does The Treatment Feel?

Most patients describe the treatment as mildly uncomfortable, similar to the flick of an elastic band. We use a skin-cooling machine that should relieve any discomfort during the procedure.

What Should I Expect After The Treatment?

Following the treatment, the skin will feel warm and may look red. The lesion, or area where the skin cells were targeted, will gradually get darker and look more obvious after the first few days of treatment before it fades or flakes away.

How Long Does Each Treatment Take?

Each treatment will take 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the number and size of patches of pigmentation that require treatment.

When you book your appointment at our Glasgow cosmetic clinic, we will be able to advise based on your unique situation and needs.

How Many Treatments Are Necessary?

The number of treatments required varies depending on the lesion, but typically 1 to 3 treatments are necessary spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart for the best results.
