Pigmentation is essentially the colouration in the skin; it’s determined by the amount of melanin (the colour) which the body produces from its melanocyte cells.


Pigmentation and Sun Damage Treatment at Laserlife involves IPL Laser Treatment to reduce and reverse the effects of sun damage on your skin.

Other than colouring the skin (plus hair and eyes), melanin provides protection by absorbing UVB radiation from the sun. A sun tan (Melanogenesis) is the result of higher melanin production; the body’s own defences against damaging UVB.

Hormonal and environmental factors can also have an impact on melanin production, resulting in pigmentation disorders. Please note that IPL only works on sun damage and not melasma.

Pigmentation and Sun Damage Treatment – The Process

Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation where the details about you medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a patch test 24 hours before treatment.

With IPL a layer of chilled gel is applied to the treatment area. The light applicator is placed on the skin and a short-pulsed light is released. The applicator is then moved to the neighbouring area and the process is repeated until the entire area is treated. The chilled gel is removed and aloe Vera and an SPF are applied. During the treatment, protective eyewear will be provided. Most clients describe the discomfort as mild and tolerable and no anaesthetic is required.

The treated area may feel warm and sensitive for the first few days post-treatment. With IPL treatments the lesion will darken and may appear more obvious before they fade and ‘flake’ away. This will crust away over 7-10 days and the pigment will appear lighter or gone.

  • No sun exposure for up to 30 days prior to treatment.
  • No fake tan or gradual tan for 10 days prior to treatment.
  • No use of topical retinol products to be used in the treated area 3 days prior to treatment.
