Pigmentation Treatment Info

The following can be safely and effectively treated:

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

The pigmented area is exposed 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.

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.

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

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

Depending upon your skin type (and the lesion being treated), there is redness and swelling in the treated area for up to 2-3 days after treatment. However, this can be significantly reduced and healing enhanced 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 the melanin continues to be broken down and absorbed.

  • 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.

Your results can be enhanced by using cosmeceutical skincare as well as high level, broad spectrum sun protection to reduce photo-damage.

"ALEVERE WEIGHT LOSS BY CLAIRE – BEST DECISION I HAVE EVER MADE!
Ever since I can remember I have been overweight and unhappy with the way that I look. I have tried all types of diets over the years and nothing has ever worked for me. When I found out about Alevere and how it was monitored by a doctor I knew this would be different and was excited to find out more.My consultation was very informative and gave me lots of reassurance and confidence in myself to get down to a healthy weight. I lost 3 stone in 5 months and feel like a completely different person, I never thought I would ever lose weight or feel better about myself but this diet has changed my life and I am so grateful. The staff made me feel so comfortable and I knew that they were always around if I needed support which was a big motivation during my journey!
