How Does it Work?

Using the KTP laser, 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 of these chemicals convert the light energy into heat. This heat is then used to destroy the parts of the cells in which the melanin is stored, and damage the walls of vessels supplying blood to the areas where vascular damage or hyperpigmentation is present.

When laser energy applied to the skin, it is immediately absorbed by rogue melanin particles. The heat generated causes the pigment to heat up and shatter into finer fragments, which are naturally removed by the body. Laser energy can also be used to selectively destroy abnormal veins. The heat generated coagulates the blood inside the vessel, causing it to collapse and seal.

What Does it Treat?

There is a multitude of conditions that vascular laser and laser for hyperpigmentation can treat, including age spots, freckles, epidermal melasma, ultraviolet dyschromia, broken capillaries, diffuse redness, rosacea, cherry angiomas, and salmon patch birthmarks. This laser treatment is suitable for lighter skin types only.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before your treatment for laser pigmentation removal in Melbourne, you will undergo a complimentary consultation with our doctor. We will thoroughly examine your skin to determine if this treatment is suitable for you. The skin surface is cleansed and prepared before treatment begins by applying the laser energy to the skin. Light snapping sounds will be heard when the laser is activated, and you will experience a slight tingling and warm sensation on your skin. The treatment takes around 45 minutes to perform. For vascular laser treatment, a non-allergenic clear gel is applied to the skin to help facilitate the laser energy.

Our doctor and team will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible for the duration of your treatment. If you have sensitive skin, your clinician can apply a numbing cream 30 minutes before the treatment. We are also able to use a cooling device that can be applied to assist in calming the area throughout the procedure.
