Laser for Skin Rejuvenation and Pigmentation

At Face Medical we frequently treat patients who are concerned with the look and feel of the skin which may include conditions such as: age spots, facial wrinkles, neck wrinkles, crepey skin, melasma, sun damage, post-inflammatory pigmentation, thread veins and psoriasis. Although these irregularities are usually harmless they can cause a degree of aesthetic concern, especially when they appear on areas such as: face, hands, forearms, chest and legs which are mostly exposed. Laser treatment for skin rejuvenation and pigmentation can safely and effectively restore a more even texture and tone, and our practitioners will establish the right course of treatment for you.

Get in Touch


When you visit Face Medical with concerns over your skin, we are likely to carry out an in-depth skin analysis using the Observ Skin Scanner. This piece of equipment is ground-breaking and has revolutionised the way we approach treatments for the skin. We can take an in-depth look at the deeper layers of your complexion to identify the developing conditions from within, including the assessment of any cellular damage that may have led to issues with pigmentation. This analysis allows us to accurately recommend the right approach to improving the look and feel of the skin, and restore its optimal condition. With this treatment we will also ensure we carry out a patch test prior to the procedure.

Individual Treatment Programme

At Face Medical we use the Elite IQ laser, by Cynosure - a leading creator of energy-based aesthetic and medical treatment systems. This specialist device has a range of applications, including treatments that can be used for the face, neck, décolletage and legs. When the device is placed on the skin’s surface it delivers pulses of light which penetrate the skin to the required depth. When treating hyperpigmentation the light is drawn to pigmented cells which then fragment and become absorbed into the body. Skin rejuvenation occurs as light energy turns to heat, stimulating the fibrous tissues to firm and smooth the skin by triggering the production of new collagen and elastin. Heat energy from the laser is also effective on thread veins, which targets the unwanted vessel precisely. As the vein wall is broken down, the flow of blood is redirected to a healthy vein - one that isn’t visible on the surface. The overall benefits of this treatment provide a healthier, fresher look to the complexion, as the skin becomes firmer, tighter and more even in texture and tone. Depending on the patient’s individual concerns, we often advise a course of 3-4 sessions, spaced 6-8 weeks apart to ensure the best results. Regular visits to our clinic can maintain the skin’s new and improved condition.

Further Advice

After our laser treatment for skin rejuvenation and pigmentation we will provide you with a set of aftercare instructions. Although we recognise that everyone will respond uniquely to their treatment, the following side effects are likely to occur: slight swelling of the treated area, redness of the skin and increased sensitivity. Whilst there may be no significant downtime associated with this treatment, the first few days will require some extra care for your skin. This may include applying cool packs to the treated area (depending on location), ensuring a high SPF has been applied before going outside and avoiding the use of harsh products.

How soon will I see results?

Many patients see an instant result that continues to improve over a 1 week period. The inner structure of the skin will need time for the rejuvenating processes to play out; whether that’s for new collagen to develop or for pigmented cells to disperse and disappear.

How much does this treatment cost, and how long will it take?

The time it takes to carry out the treatment will often depend on the size and location of the treatment area. A typical procedure for the face can take around 20-30 minutes to complete, however, treatment time will be discussed at consultation.

At Face Medical, laser for skin treatments costs:

Patch tests – £25

Pigmentation – 20 minute treatment – .£80

Thread Vein Removal Treatment – 20 minute treatment – £80

Blood Spot Removal – 20 minute treatment – £80

Full Face Skin Rejuvenation – 60 minute treatment – £180

Length of treatments and how many treatments needed will be discussed at the free consultation.

Is this treatment for me?

This treatment can be suitable for both men and women of any age, and with almost any skin type. A range of conditions can be treated, including: fine lines and wrinkles, lax skin, rosacea, sun damage, age spots, melasma and psoriasis. As well as these concerns, this laser can also be used to treat some skin lesions (thread veins) and unwanted hair.

Can laser for skin and pigmentation be used with other treatments?

In many cases we are able to combine this laser with other skin treatments to further enhance the results, including: chemical peels, facials, dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. Our trained specialists can discuss this with you during your consultation and they will be best placed to suggest the treatments that are safe to use alongside the laser and will work in your best interests.

What areas of the body can be treated?

Laser for skin rejuvenation and pigmentation is commonly used on areas such as: cheeks, forehead, hands, forearms, chest and neck. However, as the Cynosure Elite IQ has a variety of applications we are able to address larger areas of the body, including the legs.
