Do you have melasma AKA the mask of pregnancy? Traditionally melasma (a particular and common type of pigmentation) is one of the trickiest skin concerns to treat because of its volatile nature and its recurrence rate, which is why Laser Toning is a game changer.Book Now

*Please note, this treatment is not suitable for pregnant women
Laser Toning removes or lightens the appearance of melasma by selectively targeting and destroying pigment cells in the skin using laser energy. Due to its longer wavelength and low absorption of haemoglobin, it is a safer and more effective treatment and the skin’s reaction is milder, reducing inflammation and the likelihood of side effects such as Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH).
The clinical benefits of this treatment have been proven over recent years on different skin colours including darker skins which traditionally haven’t been provided with a safe treatment option for melasma.
