Skin Pigmentation Removal
Firvale Clinic in Southampton carries out treatment for most types of skin pigmentation using our Elite® Laser. This pulses laser light onto the area breaking up the pigmentation under the skin. The treated area will initially go darker and then as it heals the natural skin will come through pigment free. The procedure is relatively pain free but can have a slight burning sensation afterwards and a feeling of tightness around the site.
Skin pigmentation varies widely in type from the birth mark through to sun damage in the form of freckle like sunspots large and small. Sunspots are mainly found in the areas that we like to expose to the sun on holiday. They generally have the appearance of freckles and over time this can expand and detract from the look of the area they effect. In the case of birth marks these can be almost anywhere and vary in size from very small almost pinpoints up to large blotches which although not uncomfortable many feel them unsightly. Caution does need to be used when looking to have these removed as there is always the possibility of the mark being a mole or similar hence if you want to have them assessed professionally Dr Berry is more than willing to help with this.
