Cosmedics’ Putney Beauty Salon is now offering laser pigmentation treatment using the advanced Harmony XL Pro laser system.

The laser works to target areas of excess pigment within the skin and to safely break down the excess melanin to promote clearer skin and is a safe, effective treatment for troublesome pigmentation which can be very hard to disguise with makeup.

About Pigmentation

Pigmentation – or uneven skin tone – is a skin problem which affects much of the UK adult population and an issue for which treatment options can be quite limited.

Generally these pigmentation lesions pose no health risk, but they can be unsightly. Whereas a tan might look healthy while it lasts, pigmentation problems create a longer-term patchy appearance which spoils the complexion, making the skin look older.

The Harmony XL Pro laser offers a safe and effective option for treating a range of pigmentation issues:

  • patchy skin tone
  • age spots, sun spots, liver spots
  • enlarged freckles

Laser Pigmentation Treatment

harmony xl proLaser skin rejuvenation and pigment treatment is a relatively quick and easy procedure which works to lighten or remove skin pigmentation issues by targeting and breaking down the excess melanin within the skin.

Using no harsh creams or chemicals, the advanced skin system uses specially selected laser wavelengths to break down areas of excessive pigmentation to create a fresher, more even and youthful skin tone, reducing areas of generalised and localised pigmentation and targeting specific areas such as age spots or freckling.

Why We Get Pigmentation

Pigmentation can be due to a number of reasons, the most common of which are:

  • sun exposure or sun beds – which can cause sun spots, age spots, freckles, liver spots or a general ‘patchy’ appearance. This is especially noticeable after the age of 40, when the damage has accumulated and the skin is less able to regenerate from sun exposure
  • hormones – pregnancy hormones can cause melasma or ‘pregnancy mask’. Menopause or other hormonal conditions can also trigger pigmentation problems
  • acne – post-inflammatory pigmentation or redness
  • birthmarks – a skin pigment condition that was there from birth

From the age of around 40 the skin is less able to regenerate itself and pigmentation problems such as age spots, sun spots, enlarged freckles start to appear.

Laser Pigmentation Treatment Aftercare

  1. It is normal for the treated area to feel a bit sunburned for a few hours. You can use a cold compress or paracetamol if needed.
  2. Avoid bathing with very hot water, strenuous exercise, or massage 2-5 days.
  3. If showering, use warm/tepid water – not overly hot – and mild soap. Pat skin dry (do not rub)
  4. Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin to achieve your best results. Aloe Vera gel can be helpful in calming any irritations
  5. Wait for any initial swelling or soreness to go down before using makeup. For aggressive treatments, it is recommended to use new makeup to reduce the possibility of infection.
  6. Keep the area supple using moisturiser. Choose a product without AHA (alpha-hydroxy acids)
  7. Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for 1-2 months and throughout the course of the treatment – this is really important to reduce the chance of dark or light spots. Use sunscreen SPF 25 or higher at all times throughout the treatment when going outside. Also bear in mind that sun exposure is the main cause of pigmentation problems and prevention is the best means of ensuring that they do not recur in the future
  8. Avoid tweezing, waxing, bleaching or chemical peels on the treated area during the course of the treatment
  9. Do not use any products containing Retin-A, Benzoyl Peroxide or astringents as these could irritate sensitive skin

Absolutely thrilled with my new brows after nanoblading with Hayley at cosmedics. I’ve worked in the aesthetics industry myself for over 10 years I was so impressed with this clinic, Hayley is literally an artist when it comes to semi-permanent make up, nanoblading is the latest technique for a more natural but defined brow and the end results I have is literally perfect brows!! I couldn’t be happier!!

Dr Dan Thio did a wonderful job removing my cyst and leaving minimal scarring, he was very professional and made me feel very comfortable during the surgery. The price I paid on the day for the surgery also included aftercare, which in my case included being provided with steristrips and handful of dressings and also stitch removal appointments. I went back after 7 days to have my stitches removed, Dr Jennifer Todman assessed the area and decided to postpone my stitch removal for another 5 days. I felt very confident in her professional expertise and appreciated that they were happy to see me for a second stitch removal appointment at no additional cost. There is a definite patient over profit philosophy. 5 days later I saw Dr Britt Vardy at the Harley Street Clinic for my stitch removal, it was quick and painless. Dr Vardy too is very professional and makes you feel very comfortable. The see and treat service was brilliant, It was important for me to have my surgery as soon as possible. Most other places wouldn't see me for at least 8 weeks but just 8 days after my initial phone call to Cosmedics, I was in the Putney Surgery, having my surgery. Overall an extremely positive experience, Thank you to the team at the Putney and Harley Street Surgeries. Cosmedics will definitely be my first port of call should I ever require any of the other services they provide.

Everyone were really welcome and helpful. Dr Britt Vardy treated my warts with cryotherapy. She explained all the process and booked next treatment/check-up to make sure warts were removed completely. Would recommend cosmedics skin clinic to everyone.
