How do you treat pigmentation with lasers?

Overexposure to the sun can lead to dark spots or hyperpigmentation, also known as sunspots, age spots, brown spots, or liver spots. The best way to avoid these types of lesions is to avoid excess sun exposure, but that may not always be possible.

Laser treatments are highly effective in treating and diminishing pigmented lesions by breaking apart the pigmented area or lesion which the exfoliates off the skin. However, for best results, a combined method is most effective, using laser treatments, chemical peels, microneedling, facials etc.

At PureSkin Dermatology, our medical director Dr. Tania Bhanji will review and assess these lesions to ensure that they are not more serious cancerous lesions, before proceeding with treatment.

Who is a candidate for laser treatment for pigmentation?

  • Anyone can be a candidate for laser skin rejuvenation and pigmentation treatment.
  • We recommend a consultation with our skin experts to assess your skin and determine the right treatment protocol for you.
  • Combination treatments are always more effective than single treatments, and we will help you determine a customized and effective treatment plan.

What To Expect

What to expect during treatment

We recommend you avoid sun exposure for at least 4 weeks or sunless tanning for a minimum of 2 weeks prior to your laser treatment.

Most patients find their laser treatments very tolerable. You may feel warmth and heat during the procedure – this is normal.

At PureSkin Dermatology, we use a cooling cryogen spray with every laser pulse, making your laser treatment virtually painless.

What to expect after treatment

After your laser treatment, it is normal to feel a sensation of heat for a few minutes. You may experience mild to moderate redness for 4-6 hours after treatment.

​You may use over the counter hydrocortisone cream once or twice daily to the treated area to alleviate these symptoms. The pigmented lesions will darken and have superficial crusting for a few days after treatment.

These will fall off naturally, do not pick or rub the treatment area. Avoid sun exposure to the treated area and use sunscreen regularly.

The number of treatments will depend on your skin condition, and how well it responds to treatment. On average 5-8 sessions are needed, and combined therapy is always more efficacious.
There is minimal downtime with laser therapies for pigmentation. Usually within 24-72 hours, the pigmented areas will crust and slough off. During this time, it is critical to avoid all direct sun exposure. Our skin experts will provide you with post care products to ensure a successful outcome and recovery.
Short answer is, yes. Laser treatments are performed all over the world and in countries where there is sun exposure risk year-round. It is critical to avoid direct sun exposure and to apply sun protection both before and after treatment for best results.
