About Pigmentation Reduction & Removal
Safe & Effective Technology
At Laser Clinics United Kingdom we use state-of-the-art Candela GentleLase Pro lasers to perform the treatment and are experienced in the reduction of superficial pigmentation delivering fantastic results.
How it Works
Laser Pigmentation Removal works to safely and effectively reduce the appearance of freckles, pigmentation, sun spots and age spots. The laser targets only the pigmented lesion in the skin which absorbs the light, without damaging the surrounding skin. The laser heats up and shatters the pigment. The pigment is then drawn to the surface without harming the surrounding tissue.
Once drawn to the surface, the pigmented lesions will fade or dry and flake off the treated area, leaving the skin with an even tone and complexion.

What our customers are saying
“I was introduced to LCUK by a member of my family. I was experiencing painful spots over my face which I have never had not even in my teen age. On my very first consultation, I knew I was in the right place the entire team was professional and very friendly. I must say that although I have not completed my treatment as yet, I can see the vast difference in my skin. More importantly, I have gained my confidence back. I just want to say a big thank you to the entire team for their professionalism and friendliness.”

“I had an enzyme peel with LED done by Paula. She was extremely professional and caring at the same time. She took time to tell me about my skin and what products I needed. For the first time, I felt like my aesthetician cared about my skin, not just my money. Also for the first time, I bought products from the store as I didn't feel it was just a gimmick to make a few more bucks. I will definitely be back. Lovely experience!”

“I have been to Laser Clinics twice now for 2 treatments, 1 was capillary reduction (small area) and the second on recommendation was institut skin AHA Enzymatic Micro Peel + LED. I found the staff on both occasions very friendly and extremely polite. Also the price of the treatments in my opinion is excellent for the level of treatment you receive. I would advise anyone who's looking to get anything done to check this place out. I am glad I did.”
“My therapist has been nothing but extremely helpful with setting up a Blue LED treatment plan for acne issues. Only two sessions in and I am seeing incredible results and a large reduction in redness and active lumps. She has been very reassuring and makes every session very comfortable.”
“I recently had the Ageless Peel by my therapist which was brilliant and has made my skin look and feel so fresh.

How long will it take for me to see a result after my pigmentation treatments?
You will expect to see an improvement after your first treatment. The pigmented area will gradually reduce and after completing treatment course, you will expect to see at least a 70-80% reduction for the treated pigmentation.
How many pigmentation treatments are required for best results?
Depending on the type and depth of the pigmentation, we recommend 3-6 treatments done at monthly intervals for optimal results. At your consultation, your Skin Therapist will tailor a treatment plan suitable for your skin goals.
Is there any downtime after the pigmentation treatment?
There is minimal downtime with this treatment and side effects may include redness, swelling and sensitivity. These side effects are temporary and will subside with correct aftercare. You can expect peeling and darkening of the treated pigmentation around 3-5 days after the treatment. This usually lasts 7-10 days. We recommend following the aftercare procedures provided by your Skin Therapist.
I am currently taking medication, can I still have this treatment done?
Certain medications can cause the skin to be photosensitive. To avoid adverse reactions from occurring, we advise you to seek medical clearance from your GP prior to proceeding with the treatment.

Pigmentation Removal is suitable for individuals with fair to light skin tones (Fitzpatrick 1-2) and who are not prone to hyperpigmentation.
Is this treatment suitable during pregnancy?
