Frequently Asked Questions – Pigmentation Removal

Yes! We can safely treat any benign form of hyper pigmentation. This includes freckles, sun spots, age spots and more.
Laser pigmentation removal is safe and recommended for most patients, but it is not for everyone. Before we treat any case of pigmentation, you’ll get a complimentary consultation to ensure you are a good candidate. Those with raised pigmentation or a history of skin cancer are not good candidates.
Yes! The face, neck, chest, arms and hands are the most common treatment areas, but we can treat any area of the body.
The number of treatments you’ll need will depend on a variety of factors, including the treatment type and the location, depth and size of your pigmentation. Some can be removed in a single treatment while others may require several treatments.
Most patients will see results after just one treatment. These results will be evident in about 4 weeks, but it can take up to 8 weeks for the full result.
Yes. The pigmented lesions we remove will not return after treatment. However, various factors can stimulate new hyperpigmentation. Your treatments will not prevent the new hyperpigmentation from occurring. We recommend using a high-quality sunblock on a daily basis and using other protective measures from the sun’s UV rays in order to prevent reoccurrence.

Mesoestetic Dermamelan-Cosmelan Treatment

Mesoestetic’s star treatment, Cosmelan, treats pigment, aging, lack of luminescence and other skin conditions with high-quality ingredients and expertly-designed formulations. Mesoestetic products help to restore radiance and clarity that can be lost as environmental aggressors attack our skin.

Cosmelan is a professional, topical brightening treatment that targets all types of brown patches and skin discolorations. It significantly reduces the blemishes caused by increased melanin production by gently fading the pigment and suppressing further pigment from resurfacing.

What steps are involved in the treatment?

A thorough Skin Analysis is carried out to find out what type of pigmentation you have. We will then go through the history of the pigmentation. This will allow us to establish a correct protocol for you.
The skin is cleansed with an Ultra Mild Cleanser.
A degreasing solution is applied to aid ingredient penetration.
The In clinic Mask is applied, it is left to dry for 15 minutes.
You are sent home with the Mask on – The Mask has to be left on the skin for 8-12 hours.
Normally we conduct these treatments in the Morning, so the Mask can be washed off by evening time.
After the correct time period you will need to wash the Mask off and use the homecare products which will be included in your treatment price.
You will then be booked in every month to check your progress and maintenance plan.
How many treatments are required?

Normally one treatment with homecare maintenance cream is enough to achieve good results.

However in cases of deep pigmentation the treatment may need to be repeated, although after the first treatment the pigmentation will be much lighter.

What Results Should I expect?

You will get very noticeable results with this treatment. We will be with you every step of the way and will see you every month to check on your progress and maintenance plan.

During the first & second week of cosmetic treatment using the Cosmelan method the skin will already show a substantial improvement. Blemishes being treated will tend to diminish and simultaneously, the skin will start to show a brighter and rejuvenated look. During the end of the second week you will notice significant revival and beautification of the skin.

You will get stimulation of capillary circulation giving an effect of the new skin. The skin will appear Luminous, fresh, smooth and shiny.

In 99% of cases involving blemishes or abnormal hyperpigmentation of epidermal origin, the blemish elimination process achieved a 95% efficacy rate.

Is there any Aftercare/Homecare?

The peel paralyses the melanin production for a long period of time. However, after the peel the enzyme recovers its activity producing new melanin, particularly if there is sun exposure. Due to this the homecare cream must be used to maintain the results.

Are there any Contraindications to the treatment?

You should not have the treatment if you will continue to have excessive sun exposure.
You have had any type of recent facial surgical procedure – you will have to wait up to 6 months until all the scars have healed.
You have to wait one week prior to and after botulinum toxin and or Dermal Fillers.
You are Pregnant or Breastfeeding.
Have to wait 2 weeks after waxing your face or after use of depilatory creams
Have to wait 4 weeks after Laser Hair Removal treatment.
You have to stop using Glycolic acid and Retin A one week before the peel. Avoid using self-tanners, scrubs or exfoliating agents one week before treatment.
Notify your clinician if you begin any new type of medication, oral supplement and or any change to your health has occurred, as it may cause increased sensitivity to you peel treatment.

Alexandrite Pigmentation Treatment

Pigmentation can be safely and effectively treated with the Alexandrite Laser (755nm). The laser light is selectively absorbed by the pigment in the lesion, which causes the pigment to break down into tiny particles that can then be removed by your skin’s natural exfoliation process. Immediately after treatment, there will be redness and swelling at the treatment site. The redness may last anywhere from 2 hours to 2-3 days, but the swelling should go down sooner. The treated area will feel sunburned for a few hours after treatment.

Enquire Now
Pre-Treatment preparation for Alexandrite laser treatment;

Sunscreen is mandatory whilst undergoing treatment
Refrain from sun exposure, solarium and fake tan use while undergoing treatment
Any active injury or inflammation to the treatment area
Herpes simplex virus – If you have a history of peri-oral or genital herpes, start on prophylactic anti-viral therapy
Any photosensitizing medications and/or herbs. It is your responsibility to ensure none of your medications and supplements are photosensitizing
If you are tanned or have a darker skin type, a bleaching regimen may be started 4-6 weeks before treatment.
History of keloid scarring
Fake tan or sun exposure in the 3-4 weeks prior to treatment
Pregnancy or breast feeding
Skin peels or hydroxy acid or retinol use within the proceeding 4weeks of treatment Please notify your clinician if any of these concern you, you may need to provide us with a medical certificate before treatment can commence
Intraoperative Care:

The skin is thoroughly cleaned prior to treatment Anaesthesia is most often not required.
When treating the upper lip, the teeth may be protected with moist white gauze. The gauze also serves to support the lip during treatment, allowing a surface to push against.
The DCD (cryogen cooling device) is typically not used during the treatment.
Safety considerations are important during the laser procedure. Protective eyewear will be worn by the patient and all personnel in the operative suite during the procedure to reduce the chance of damage to the eye. We will take all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and comfort.

Fractionated 1927nm

Fractional resurfacing is best to treat issues involving complexion and skin tone, enlarged pores, freckles, fine, lines and large pores, and sun damage.

Reduced healing time is the main advantage of Fractional resurfacing. The Fractionated Laser is applied in columns, so the untreated areas are able to help in the healing of the skin, making the process faster and safer.

This procedure is most often applied over 3 treatment intervals. You can expect to see a noticeable improvement with each treatment.

There are two different wavelengths (1927nm and 1550nm) for treating different skin concerns. The 1927nm wavelength is used to treat issues such as pigmentation, sun damage, and improving skin quality, tone and texture. The 1550nm wavelength is primarily for acne scarring and other types of scarring.

Fractional Laser 1927nm is best for:

Complexion and skin tone
Enlarged pores
Fine lines and large pores
Sun damage and pre-cancerous sun spots
Sun damage to lips (actinic cheilitis)
How often does a Fractional treatment need to be done?

Usually approximately 3 treatment sessions are recommended with a minimum of 4 weeks apart, this can vary on the type and degree of scarring.

What can the patient expect from this treatment?

Patients can expect smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin. Patients with acne scarring can expect gradual improvement with each treatment.

Is the procedure painful?

The procedure may be uncomfortable and will therefore require some form of anaesthetic. A topical anaesthetic cream is applied 45 minutes prior to the treatment commencing and is very effective in numbing the skin. After the procedure, there will be a mild burning sensation for several hours. This is usually well tolerated.

Do I have to wear any type of dressing or bandage after the treatment?

No. Your clinician will prescribe an ointment such as Bepanthen QV Intensive or Flamigel. This is used as a barrier to keep the air away from your skin while you grow new epithelium (connective tissue). You will probably use it for one to two days. After that, a moisturiser can be used. Patients with darker skin types may need to apply skin whitening (bleaching) cream to prevent darkening of the skin after treatment.

How long is the healing process?

The healing process varies from patient to patient as well as the depth and density of the treatment. Generally it takes around 5 to 7 days to recover fully from the treatment. Some patients are even able to return to work immediately after treatment with make-up applied if needed (Oxygenetics).

Immediately following the procedure you’ll feel as if you’ve been sunburnt. Mild swelling and redness will persist for 2 to 3 days, but there’s usually no bleeding or oozing.

Over the next few days, you’ll experience minor flaking of the skin. By day two, redness will begin to fade, and the skin might take on a bronzed appearance and start to flake. Most redness and flaking will settle in one week’s time. For some people who are prone to redness, the skin may look red for a little longer but will eventually settle. For best results, patients should avoid the sun thereafter and use regular sun protection.

Is everyone suitable for Fractional resurfacing?

Unfortunately not everyone is suitable for Fractional Laser Resurfacing due to risks involved. Patients that are contraindicated to this treatment are listed below, we do not treat:

Pregnant or breast-feeding women
Children under the age of 18 without parental consent
Any area where current significant skin disease or infections such as cold sores are present
Patients with (darker) skin types 5–6 are at greater risk of post-treatment pigmentation
Anyone with a history of keloid scarring (check with doctor)
Anyone with an emotional, mental or medical condition that may impair judgment

Q-Switch Pigmentation Treatment

The Q-Switch Lasers main feature is that it has extremely short pulses of high power that can be shorter than 20 nanoseconds (one nanosecond equals one billionth of a second). This allows the laser to have a photo-mechanical effect on skin pigmentation, literally shattering these small particles. The remnants are then removed by the body’s immune system.

What happens after treatment and how long will results last?

Immediate whitening (frosting) of the treated spot occurs and fades within hours. This is followed by transient redness and mild swelling. Make up may be applied if desired. The treated area then darkens (like a bruise) and will gradually peel off over the next 1-2 weeks. The ‘new’ skin may look slightly pink but will blend with the rest of the skin in time. If you have darker skin, a depigmenting lotion may be used to prevent the ‘new skin’ from pigmenting. Mild scabbing may occur but rarely leaves scars. The pigment may recur with sun exposure, if not protected, strict sun protection is recommended.

For best results, it is necessary to have the full series of pre-determined treatment sessions. In a minority of patients, the Q-switch laser procedure may not work satisfactorily or may not last for the expected period of time.

As it’s not possible to predict a sub-optimal response, we are unable to guarantee expected outcomes, nor the number of treatment sessions needed for satisfactory out.

Is everyone suitable for Q-switch laser?

Unfortunately not everyone is suitable for Q-Switch Laser due to risks involved. Patients that are contraindicated to this treatment are listed below, we do not treat:

Pregnant or breast-feeding women
Children under the age 18 without parental consent
Current Significant Skin disease/infection such as cold sores at the site of treatment.
History of keloid scarring(special precaution in high risk areas)
Prior treatment with gold injections (may darken)
Cosmetic ‘make-up’ tattoos that are pale or skin coloured (may darken)
Any emotional, mental or medical condition that may impair judgement
