The Pigmentation Laser Treatment and Laser Spot Removal Procedure
The Elite MPX™ laser is a long-pulse laser an intense but gentle burst of light penetrates deeply into skin tissue, where it delivers a controlled amount of target, therapeutic heat. A special dynamic cooling device is used during treatment to cool the skin and to minimise discomfort. Safety around lasers is important, so you will be provided with protective eyewear for your procedure.
Two to three treatments are usually required to achieve the desired results for most conditions.
The Healing Process
Side effects are rare and pain is uncommon. However, following treatment, there may be some temporary swelling at the treatment site that may last up to two hours or longer. There may also be temporary redness at the treatment site that may last two to three days in some cases. Ice packs should be applied to the treated areas for the first 24 hours to reduce discomfort and swelling.
Avoid vigorous cleansing or rubbing of the area. It’s also important to avoid sunlight or solariums in the healing phase, so wear an SPF 30+ sunscreen. Apply a gentle cleanser and moisturiser daily
The treated area will appear darker immediately and within the first few days following treatment. This will flake off within one to three weeks. Avoid picking or scratching the flaking skin.
