 HOW IT WORKS 

Pastelle laser treats epidermal pigmentation by darkening brown spots which will sloughs off in a few weeks.

Dermal pigmentation is deeper in the skin and require a longer laser wavelength to target and break up the pigment without damaging skin cell and skin surface. It is a specific way the laser is treating the pigmentation without causing adverse effects such as hyper or hypo pigmentation.

Mixed pigmentation such as Melasma/PIH takes more time and sessions to treat. Pastelle PTP mode deliver sufficient energy to break up pigment cells, without triggering more pigmentation, which then can be removed by the body.

 TREATMENT PREPARATION 

Avoid excessive sun exposure or used a solarium 2 weeks prior.

Advise your clinician if you:

  • Have had waxing within the treatment area

  • Have had laser or IPL treatments within the treatment area

  • Have had chemical/herbal treatments i.e. AHA peels, enzyme exfoliation therapies

 POST TREATMENT CARE 

To assist in the post treatment process, we recommend continual hydration of the skin, using prescribed cosmeceutical skin care, Avoid excessive exercise in the first 24 hours.

Avoid scrubs and exfoliants and strong skincare products for the first three to five days.

Avoid tanning and prolonged sun exposure for the first week.


Consider taking natural supplements or antiviral medication for prevention if you are prone to cold sore.

 FOLLOW UP AND NEXT STEPS 

Clients are reccomended to pair Laser Pigmentation Removal with the Yellow LED Light Therapy treatment to fast-track the breakdown of the pigment through stimulation of the lymphatic system. No sun exposure 2 weeks post and use of SPF 50+ sunscreen to the treated area.

Any pigmentation removal treatments that use medical grade lasers can expect a mild discolouration of pigment before it heals after just a few days.

The treated area may also become more sensitive to sun exposure. treatments can be done every 2-4 weeks apart. 3 sessions is always ideal.
