Pigmentation is a common skin concern (also known as sun spots or age spots). Pigmentation refers to the dark patches that appear on your face and hands when there is a spike in melanin, the cells responsible for giving your skin its colour. Lasers are simple, fast, effective, safe tools for removing liver spots, age spots, brown spots, sun spots, sun damage, skin discolouration, and freckles..

A combination of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light ) and The Fotona Nd: YAG laser is used to treat freckles and pigmentation from the inside out. The laser is passed over the skin to destroy damaged, pigmented skin cells. The lasers destroy the cells by being attracted to the colour of the pigment in the skin and works to bring this pigment to the surface of the skin to be removed. Treatment takes approx 30 min to complete. No downtime. For best results, we suggest a minimum of 3 treatments.

"This is a note to let you know how pleased I am with my Micro-fractional laser treatment given by Dr. Biro. I found it to be nearly painless during the treatment of about one hour or so and of course no pain at all with the healing process."

I've been seeing Dr. Andy for botox and facial treatments since 2011. As a person, he is very considerate and caring; capable of interesting, lively banter - a nice to know individual. As a professional, he is quite disciplined and knowledgeable. His clinical approach is cautious and discerning - using the most appropriate treatment of the many options and products offered by his practice. He does good work and I trust him. I do not look anything like a 60+ woman - I look 40-ish.... which is quite empowering.

Excellent service, & very reasonable rates. Dr. Biro was really great, very friendly, knowledgeable and skilled, and the rest of the staff were so helpful and friendly.
I had two people recommend this clinic, one of whom is a nurse, and i couldn't be happier that I went. I've had my botox done at 3 other clinics and I've had the best results from Longevity - I'll definitley be coming back!!
I came over from Vancouver, was running late because I missed a ferry and they couldn't have been nicer about rescheduling me and doing everything they could to get me in.
I've already recommended them to three other friends/family members - you should definitely go check them out.

What causes pigment or sun damage?

Pigment, sun damage, brown spots, and age spots develop from an excessive concentration of melanin in the skin. Melanin is what gives our skin its colour. Everyone’s skin has a different amount of melanin. Various factors can cause high melanin concentrations. Some concentrations are present at birth, but most occur with age or, most commonly, from overexposure to the sun’s damaging rays. Your Skin Care Technician will evaluate your skin and determine the best treatment for your skin’s pigmentation.

What type of pigmented removal can be treated with laser?

The most commonly treated conditions are age spots, liver spots, and sunspots. These lesions are due to excess pigment in the skin, often from sunlight exposure and genetic factors. Age spots may appear as enlarged light freckles on the face and hands. 

*Individual results may vary.

When will I see results?

Sun damage pigment will lighten and possibly be removed from the skin’s surface in as little as one treatment. Most people need three treatments to see pigment lightened to their satisfaction. If the skin is unprotected and exposed to the sun, there is a chance pigment will reappear. New sun damage, freckles, and spots still can occur in the future.

*Individual results may vary.

How many treatments are required?

Most people see results after three treatments, but some people may need more. Some individual spots may need more attention than the full face. These areas can be treated on their own.

*Individual results may vary.

Is the procedure painful?

With minimal discomfort, laser skin rejuvenation treatments can be performed on any facial area – around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, chin. A topical anesthetic cream can be used on extra sensitive areas, but no injections are needed.

Who are the best candidates for this treatment?

How long do treatments take?

Are there any risks with skin rejuvenation?

Advanced light systems have been used safely for millions of treatments worldwide. As we target pigmented areas, the remainder of the skin is usually untouched or lightly treated. In rare instances, bruising, blistering, scarring, and hyper or hypopigmentation can occur. The vast majority of our patients experience little to no adverse reactions. *Individual results may vary
