K-Laser Blue Derma
At Charlestown Cosmetic Medicine, we use the K-Laser Blue Derma for all our laser treatments. The state-of-the-art laser technology utilises blue light, which offers several advantages over infra-red laser, including improved accuracy and minimal damage to surrounding areas.
The Blue Derma 445nm wavelength laser accurately targets the melanin in the skin, offering great results for pigmentation problems.
The laser only targets and treats the pigmented area, without damaging the surrounding skin. The laser heats up and shatters the pigment, which is then drawn to the surface. Once drawn to the surface the pigment will fade or dry and flake off, leaving the skin with an even tone and complexion.
What part of the body?
We can perform laser treatments to reduce pigmentation on the:
- Hands, arms, shoulders
Why you do it
Reduce the appearance of pigmentation, which can increase the signs of ageing even more than wrinkles and lines.
Increase your skin’s natural radiance and tone whilst reversing the signs of sun damage and ageing.
Possible side effects
The most prominent side effects are:
- Transient darkening of the pigment
- Mild swelling
Following the treatment, the pigmentation will initially appear darker and continue to deepen in colour for 48 hours. After this, the pigmentation will form a crust and gradually flake away. This process can take up to 14 days and you will need to wear sun cream and moisturiser on the affected area during this time. You can also cover the spots with makeup if you wish.
We recommend having 3 additional treatments every 6-12 weeks.
