Brown Spot & Pigmentation Treatment in Surrey

Pigmentation, brown spots or uneven skin tone can be due to due to numerous causes such as sun exposure and increasing age. This can be significantly reduced leaving a brighter, clear and more even complexion.

At health + aesthetics our latest non-ablative laser has excellent results in treating pigmentation and we help many patients with this condition throughout both Surrey and Hampshire.

What can be treated?

The following can be safely and effectively treated:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Brown spots
  • Freckles
  • Melasma
  • Uneven skin tone

How does the treatment work?

With a handpiece, we expose the pigmented area to short pulses of visible light, which breaks down the melanin that is responsible for the pigmentation in the skin. The pigment is then absorbed by the body, hence reducing the dark patches on the skin.

Will I be suitable for treatment?

Most people with pigmentation will be suitable for treatment. You will need to attend for an assessment to check if you are suitable for treatment and how many sessions are needed.

How many sessions will I need?

Most patients need a course of 3-6 treatments every 4 weeks to achieve the desired results.

What are the side-effects?

The treatment is not painful and at most you may notice slight discomfort.

Depending upon your skin type (and the lesion we treated), there is redness and swelling in the treated area for up to 2-3 days after treatment. However, we can significantly reduce this and enhance healing by having Dermalux LED Light Therapy immediately after the laser treatment.

The treated area may also appear darker for 5-7 days after treatment but this will clear shortly afterwards. This is normal since your body still continuously breaks down and absorbs the melanin.

What is the after-care?

  • Immediately after treatment there will be redness and swelling of the treatment area and this feels like mild sunburn.
  • Applying cool packs to the skin for the first few hours after treatment will help reduce discomfort.
  • Application of Aloe Vera gel is helpful.
  • Use SPF 50 and avoid sun exposure. This is essential to avoid the risk of hyperpigmentation or darker pigmentation.
  • Avoid picking and scratching the treated area to reduce the risk of pigmentation.
  • Avoid hot baths, exercise, and heat treatments and treat the skin gently especially for the first 24 hours after treatment.

How can I improve my results?

You can enhance your results by using cosmeceutical skincare as well as high level, broad spectrum sun protection to reduce photo-damage.

Testimonials

"PIGMENTATION, SKIN HEALTH Fantastic service. Well above my expectations, every step explained before it was going to happens so no surprises. Lovely staff. Female patient (31)"
"REKHA GIVES GOOD HONEST ADVICE I have visited Rekha’s clinic many times over many years and have always been made to feel welcome. Rekha is a warm and caring person and lovely to talk to. One of the nicest things about Rekha is that I know she gives good honest advice. She is constantly going on courses and to conferences so is always up to date with new procedures. Two things that are very reassuring about Rekha is that she was a GP before she opened her clinic so you feel you are in safe hands and she is not afraid to turn people away if she feels a treatment is not right for you. Therefore, you know you are in safe hands and not going to receive any unnecessary or damaging treatments. Margaret (57) Surrey"
" I’M SO PLEASED WITH THE RESULT, IT’S SUCH A BIG DIFFERENCE! I had these dark patches due to sun damage for a long time. During summer, they became darker and bigger, really noticeable. health + aesthetics is local, and I’d also done some research, checked out the Facebook page, reviews, and looked at the website and everything looked professional, so I booked the consultation. At my first consultation, I was advised to follow a strict skincare regime. We started off with a low strength and then gradually it got stronger and stronger. I had to persevere with it because my skin started to be flaky, red and itchy. Specialist skin, laser and body clinic, health + aesthetics, Farnham multi award winning So, every 6 weeks, I went up to a stronger product I went through the same process but I had a check-up and Visia photos taken, so it was obvious that it really worked. Not to mention that my whole face and skin started to look and feel fresher. I also had a course of HydraFacial treatment that gives an instant glow and your skin looks and feels fresh. I appreciated that everything was explained really well, I could see the changes on the screen as well as in the mirror. All in all, it’s been a really positive experience. It made me feel better about my look. It definitely makes me look younger. I would definitely recommend health + aesthetics basically to anyone who has any kind of issues with their skin. I didn’t think that a product use could have such a huge impact. It’s worth coming for the consultation to see what solutions there are out there and to get advice on your next steps. I feel more confident, the way I look. I’m so pleased with the result, it’s such a big difference! Joanne (42)"
