How does skin whitening work?

In this procedure the area to be treated is exposed to short pulsed light that converts into heat once absorbed in the pigmented patch of skin. Through this heat energy, the damaged, pigmented layers of skin are removed and new skin production stimulated. The stimulated collagen production means that new layers of skin that appear are smoother, brighter, and lighter.

Who is this treatment for?

People dealing with different kinds of skin conditions resort to laser treatment for the solution. Some of those skin problems include:


Uneven skin tone

Acne scarring

Enlarged pores

Wrinkles and fine lines

Age spots

If your skin issue isn’t present in the list above, it does not mean that this is not a viable treatment option for you. Please come in for a consultation to find out more.

No, it does not. You might feel slight stinging but usually a numbing cream will be used to dampen the effects of even that.

Hyper-pigmentation is caused by excessive amounts of melanin in the skin. Melanin is produced by the skin to defend against the UV rays of the sun. Therefore, it is direct exposure to the sun that leads to pigmentation and uneven skin tone.

It depends on how damaged your skin is. Usually two sessions are enough to get rid of all the damaged skin.

The treatment cost depends on how much work you’re having done. You are requested to please visit us to get an exact figure for your treatment.

What can be expected during recovery?

There will be some swelling and redness right after the treatment and the patient might feel a stinging sensation on their treated area. These aftereffects, however, will usually go down within two hours at max. After that it’s just a matter of protecting your skin against direct exposure to the sun and keeping it clean and moisturized. You might also experience flaky skin as the damaged layers continue to peel off, but moisturizing and regular cleaning should resolve that problem within 2 weeks.

Expected Results

After the first hour or so of treatment you will start to notice immediate improvement in your skin. It will appear to be smoother, brighter, more even toned, and the pigmented areas lighter. As the stimulated collagen does its work over the next few weeks, you will notice further improvement and lightening of the dark patches.
