Pigmentation Reduction & Removal
Book Your Complimentary Consultation
The second and lower layer of skin, called our dermis, is responsible for giving us our pigment called melanin when over stimulated, can cause excess pigmentation.
The over stimulation of melanin can be caused by excess sun exposure and or hormonal changes and certain medications. This is the brown discolouration some see on the cheeks, chin, forehead and upper lip.
Sun exposure is the number one cause of pigmentation, as it’s sunlight that triggers the production of melanin in the first place. Melanin acts as your skin’s natural sunscreen by protecting you from harmful UV rays, which is why people tan in the sun.
But excessive sun exposure can disrupt this process, leading to hyperpigmentation.
Hormonal influences are the main cause of a kind of hyper-pigmentation known as melasma or chloasma. It’s particularly common among women, as it’s thought to occur when the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone stimulate the overproduction of melanin when skin is exposed to the sun.
Here at Evolution Laser Clinic we offer several solutions that can improve and rejuvenate the skin. We target superficial pigment and dermal pigment whilst reversing the signs of sun damage and ageing.
At Evolution Laser, we offer several options for pigmentation removal. Our treatments target superficial and dermal pigment, and each treatment option, from laser pigment reduction, skin needling and pigment peels to our Ultimate Brightening Serum are designed to improve and rejuvenate the skin, as well as help reverse the signs of sun damage and ageing.
Pigmentation that has been removed by laser treatment should not return after treatment has been completed, provided the skin is appropriately taken care of. During treatment, the superficial pigmentation lesions absorb the laser energy and rise to the surface of the skin. Two to three days after treatment, the lesions will start to dry and flake off, leaving you with clear and even-toned skin within fourteen days.
Laser pigmentation removal in Sydney can safely treat benign hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage and ageing. This type of pigmentation treatment works best on lighter skin tones. At Evolution Laser we are able to treat fair skin types 1, 2 and 3.

For laser pigment reduction, three treatments is generally ideal for optimal results. However, further treatments may be required for higher levels of pigmentation. For skin needling, six to ten treatments are usually required. Pigment peels can be performed at fortnightly or monthly intervals.
This depends somewhat on the type of treatment. With treatment by laser for pigmentation, it is common to experience a little discomfort due to the heat from the laser. With skin needling, some may find the sensation unfamiliar but not uncomfortable, while some may prefer to use a numbing cream prior to treatment. With skin peels, it is common to experience a slight tingling or stinging sensation for a few minutes while the peel does its work.
Laser treatment for pigmentation is generally the most affordable option for pigmentation removal in Sydney, with pigment peels and skin needling also providing affordable treatment solutions.
