What is Laser Pigmentation Removal and how does it work?

At the Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic, we provide targeted laser pigmentation removal which works to safely and effectively reduce the appearance of freckles, sun spots, age spots and all types of pigmented skin areas. This laser pigmentation treatment is performed with a medical grade laser which effectively targets only the pigmented spots. The laser targets only the pigmented spots in the skin because this is the only area that can absorb the laser light due to its darker colour, therefor no damage to the surrounding skin occurs. The laser light heats up and shatters the pigment. When the pigment is raised to the surface, the pigmented lesions will either fade as the particles are small enough for the body to remove as waste, or dry and flake off, leaving the skin with an even tone and complexion. This treatment is also known as ‘Laser Skin Rejuvenation’ because it helps even out the skin tone which gives your face a more youthful appearance.

Signs and Symptoms

Pigmentation (also referred to as hyperpigmentation) refers to the darkening of the skin caused by increased melanin. It presents itself as freckles, age spots (or sunspots), and areas of the skin with a generally darker colour.

Many pregnant and pre-menopausal women will also experience melasma, which is characterised by pigmented splotches – usually on the face.

What causes pigmentation?

Pigementation and hyperpigmentation can occur anywhere on the body, but usually appears on the hands or face. Contributors include:


Some people are genetically predisposed to skin pigmentation.

Sun damage

Excessive unprotected exposure to the sun causes damage to the skin. This damage is characterised by freckles, sun spots and age spots.


Birthmarks are areas of pigmented skin caused by an overgrowth of melanin-producing melanocytes. Birthmarks have no specific cause and can be categorised as a benign irregularity.

Skin trauma

Skin trauma or damage can cause areas of pigmentation to appear.


Hormonal fluctuations, such as those experienced during pregnancy, can affect the skin quite significantly.

General ageing

The ageing process can often lead to age spots and general skin darkening.
