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

Dr Ross Perry is wonderful. His medical background offers patients more than just an aesthetic service, and as a result gives you confidence in the treatments that he is able to apply and offer his patients. I highly recommend Cosmedics.

""Dr Ross Perry can only be described as fantastic. His professionalism, care and knowledge is excellent. We cannot thank him enough for the excellent treatment he provided to a family member. From booking an appointment to the treatment itself the service is the best I have ever experienced.

Really pleased with my experience from start to finish. I went for a procedure three days ago at the Bristol clinic. The receptionist was quick to call me back when I enquired about an appointment, and booked me in quickly. The waiting room was more like a visit to one of William the third's apartments at Hampton Court Palace. The really kind and friendly nurse helped to put me at ease before and during the procedure and made the experience less terrifying (I was very nervous)! And Dr Rhys Stevens also put made me feel relaxed and did a really good job, and pain free procedure. I'm very pleased with the results. Thank you!

I had been shopping around to have some Facial Thread Vein work done and was feeling unsure about it. I had concerns due to my lack of knowledge about the procedure as I have never had anything like this done before. All the other places I contacted were not so helpful and just booked me in for a consultation. However I spoke to Helen at Cosmedics on the telephone and found her helpful and informative. She listened to my concerns and even offered suggestions. It is rare these days to receive a high level of friendly customer service but on this day I did receive it. I have since had the work done and happy so far as I only had it done two days ago. However my big thanks is to Helen for putting me in the right direction. Thanks Helen!
