Pigment Laser Peel

What is the Medlite C6 Pigment Laser Peel?

Living in Australia, nearly everyone has some brown spots on their face resulting from sun exposure. While these spots aren’t harmful to your skin’s health they can be cosmetically displeasing as they don’t allow us to achieve a luminous, even complexion. The Pigment Laser Peel offered by Academy Face and Body is an effective procedure designed to lighten pigment accumulations and improve overall skin colour, texture and luminosity.

The Pigment Laser Peel is a light-based procedure that targets signs of photo aging including uneven skin tones like age spots and freckles. During the procedure, a laser goes over the area of concern and is then cooled for 15-20 minutes.

What can the Pigment Laser Peel treat?

The Medlite C6 Laser Peel can visibly lighten and improve:

  • Age spots (solar lentignes)
  • IPL resistant sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Mild open pores
  • Skin texture

Note: The laser peel can be used anywhere on the body, not just the face.

**Results may vary from person to person**

Contraindications

A Laser Peel may be unsuitable for you for any of the reasons below:

  • Use of Roaccutane
  • Historical keloid scarring/abnormal wound healing
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Tanning medications
  • Open wounds, including eczema, rosacea, Herpes Simplex and dermatitis
  • Anticoagulant/light sensitising medications
  • Seizures triggered by light
  • Cancer or radiation therapy
  • Sunburn
  • Recent surgery in the area to be treated (3-6 months)
  • Recent hair removal (including waxing), laser or injectable treatments (1 week)
  • Melasma (instead a course of Laser Toning Peels & lightening cream is recommended)

Note: Please inform your Doctor if you are prone to skin darkening post-trauma or cold sores.

Potential Complications (rare)

Incorrectly cared for healing skin can result in a prolonged healing time, potentially leading to infection and scarring.

Hyper-pigmentation can last up to 12 months and can be treated with a medicated bleaching cream. We recommend people with darker skin types prepare their skin via a bleaching cream for a month prior to treatment.

If you are prone to cold sores in the area that has been treated, it is rare but possible that you could experience a Herpes Simplex breakout.

How many treatments do I need?

Up to 3 treatments may be necessary for skin that is significantly photo damaged but most people notice visible improvements after the first treatment.

How often do I need to have the treatment?

Best results are achieved when treatments are performed on a monthly basis.

The Procedure

This procedure attracts a low level of discomfort and heat, and a topical anaesthetic is applied half an hour before the treatment begins to mitigate the discomfort you will experience.

During the procedure you will feel a prickling sensation followed by a mild heat. A cold air or cool compress is applied after this for 15-20 minutes and a warm glow could be felt for 48 hours following the laser peel.

How will my skin react after the treatment?

Face:

  • For 2-5 hours a mild sunburn-like sensation will be experienced by most patients
  • Some swelling and moderate redness will be experienced for 12-36 hours post-peel
  • Red, raised circular marks may be present following the peel and last for 4-5 days
  • Some patients are prone to hives but these dissipate 1-2 hours after the treatment
  • Your skin will be particularly sensitive to heat for 2 days

Body:

  • As above for Face
  • Some residual darkening could occur for 4-6 weeks before fading
