Pigmentation treatments performed with IPL are accomplished through heating and breaking down the melanin whilst retaining the integrity of the surrounding tissue. We perform IPL on the effected areas, full face, neck, chest and even the back of the hands. Once we have safely used the Intense Pulse Light to heat the melanin you can sometimes feel a little heat over the next 24 hours. There is no down time with this treatment. The pigmented areas that have been treated will start to go darker in colour, raise and sometimes feel gritty. This is all apart of the elimination process. This can then be gently exfoliated off. The number of treatments needed will depend on the type and severity of pigmentation. For more information ask your SKN therapist for a thorough consultation.
