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 Vardy is fantastic, she talked me through each step of the procedure and I am incredibly happy with the results. I was a little nervous about it but she gave me great advice and is incredibly professional.

Had a hydradermie facial done with Lydia and was very pleased with the service and professionalism I received from her. I would definitely recommend her as a racialist

Lovely doctor , explained all my options and we agreed on the best one for me. I had two moles removed on the same day as my appointment and I was done in twenty minutes. I would defiantly recommend Dr Vardy as the procedure was quick and painless

I had a small mole on the face that I was thinking of removing for a good few years. I had an appointment with Dr Todman and she and her assistant were very nice and professional, they explained everything I needed to know about the mole shaving treatment. I decided to do the treatment on the same day and it was the right decision. I am very happy with the result, the mole is removed and I dont have any scars. I highly recommend Dr Todman.

I have had a number of moles removed including one on my face that I was incredibly nervous about but I had no reason to be. Dr Perry did an excellent job of each one. I wouldn’t trust anyone else but him. Thank you Dr Perry!
