Cosmedics Beauty’s Putney and Harley Street advanced  treatment centres are 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.

Common pigmentation problems, or ‘Pigmented Epidermal Lesions’, include:

  • Nevi
  • Café-au-lait macules

 

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 - been coming to see him for 5 years. He is brilliant at the fillers and extremely caring in his manner - eg you feel safe in good hands.

I had a hydrafacial with Georgia and absolutely loved it. Not only was Georgia a lovely girl but performed one of the best hydrafacials I’ve had yet. She included my neck which not many places do and when I asked her to focus on my chin area, she payed extra attention there. Thanks Georgia!

I had HD Brows with Sienna and I have never had so many positive compliments before! She fixed my eyebrows from when my last therapist waxed off half of my hair and shaped them to make my eyes pop. She did such a good even my boyfriend noticed!

I have been visiting Cosmedics for 3 years for electrolysis. The clinic was recommended by a friend who continues with treatment there and I have recommended another friend who now attends regularly. Sienna in particular is skilful and pleasant, and I now only book appointments with her. Reception staff are very helpful and friendly. On one occasion I was asked to call urgently about my appointment and I think I spoke to the call centre who didn't know anything about the call. As I was away at the time I planned to ring Putney for clarification on my return, but, forgot which was annoying as when I went to my next appointment was told it was cancelled as Sienna was on leave. I complained at the time to reception staff and they said they would follow it up, and that wasn't the first time there had been problems with the call centre.
