Pigmentation Removal

Beam with the Confidence of Bright, Even-Toned Skin
Don’t let freckles, age spots or melasma hold you back from looking and feeling your most youthful. If you’ve spent too much time soaking up the sun and are now regretting the discoloured, uneven complexion that stares back at you, You by Sia can help.

What causes pigmentation?
Sun exposure is the primary contributor to excess pigmentation. As UV rays penetrate down into the skin, the body releases melanin to cover and protect the cells. With continued exposure melanin production can go in to overdrive, resulting in clustered pigment, otherwise known as freckles, sun spots and age spots. Pigmentation issues can also follow trauma to the skin, pregnancy or hormone imbalances.

What does treatment involve?
You By Sia uses a combination of laser technology and active cosmeceuticals to address visible hyperpigmentation on the face, leaving you with a clearer, more even looking complexion.

Our state-of-the-art laser technology is designed to target the appearance of darkened lesions, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Laser pulses quickly heat the pigment, causing it to crust at the surface. In the days following treatment, freckles, sun spots and melasma will begin to graze over and shed.

It’s important to note that not all skin types are suitable for laser treatments. Post-inflammatory pigmentation is more difficult to address and is not suitable for treatment with laser. This form of pigmentation is caused by trauma and can be diminished with You by Sia’s specially formulated pigment inhibitor serum.

Is my skin suitable for laser pigmentation removal?
There are many different triggers determining how pigmentation is formed, released and carried through varying skin types. As such, suitability for laser is determined based on skin colour, and typically we will be unable to treat individuals with medium to olive skin tone, or darker. During a pre-treatment consultation we can establish a program which will be most suited to your skin.

How many sessions will I require?
For the face, optimum results can be achieved in two treatments, spaced two weeks apart. For body treatments, three to four treatments are required, three weeks apart.

What do I need to know before the procedure?
Your laser technician will give you all the information you need to prepare for your session.

Some important points to remember:

  • Avoid sun exposure or solarium use for at least four weeks preceding treatment
  • Prep your skin with the recommended You by Sia treatment serums – these have been formulated to kick start the pigment fighting process
  • Do not apply fake tan or wax the treatment area in the two weeks before treatment

What do I need to know after the procedure?
There are a few important steps to remember following treatment:

  • Continue using the recommended You by Sia pigment treatment serums, as these will continue to feed the skin and assist with wound repair.
  • Limit sun exposure as skin will be more sensitive to UV damage
  • Ensure skin is always protected with SPF while outside
