Types Of Skin Pigmentation Treatment
At The DOC Clinic, we offer a range of non invasive skin rejuvenation options to help you manage the conditions of hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation. Following a consultation, we are able to advise on the best procedure designed to remove age spots, freckles, or any other skin issue you may be facing.
Hydro microdermabrasion is the latest technology in dermabrasion for pigmentation treatment. It uses the power of hydrating fluids (delivered through jets) to exfoliate the skin’s outer layer and help improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation such as dark spots, melasma, age spots and freckles.
Our facial peels for pigmentation involve applying a chemical solution to the skin which removes the damaged outer layers to correct the issue. For our skin pigmentation removal in Melbourne, we offer mild peel formulas containing AHAs as well as other options.
Cosmeceuticals /Prescription Medication
Our cosmeceutical skincare products include compounded de-pigmentation creams and lotions which contain high concentrations of active ingredients to penetrate the skin and encourage elastin, collagen and cellular activity. These strong concentrations have the potential to affect real change in the skin We also have several new skincare ranges we’ve recently introduced to our clinic, including Beaute Pacifique and Lira Clinical.
FRAXEL DUAL (1927/1550nm) Laser For Pigmentation
Fraxel® is a laser skin treatment that uses columns of microscopic laser to penetrate deep into the skin of the chest, neck, hands and face, speeding up the collagen remodelling process. Fraxel®, so named for its fractional treatment of the skin, treats the targeted area and leaves the surrounding tissue untreated. This means we can even use Fraxel for freckles and other small markings with precise results and minimal downtime all performed with a topical anesthetic so is usually a minimally painful treatment.
At The DOC Clinic, we offer Fraxel treatment for age spots and freckles, sunspots, and other damage from sun exposure. Fraxel® treats the skin from the inside out, focusing on the stimulation of collagen and healthy skin cells to resurface your skin.

Q SWITCH LASER (REVLITE-1064/532nm)
We have also seen some impressive results when using the RevLite laser for pigmentation management. While this technology has often been used for colour tattoo removal, it can also be effective in cosmetic treatments including skin rejuvenation, vellus hair reduction, pigmented lesions, and as laser to remove age spots.
The Q switch laser system is the known Gold standard technology for difficult to treat pigmentation, such as Melasma on the face.
So what is RevLite? RevLite is a Q-switch, non-invasive form of laser that fires energy at a very fast rate (pulse duration) with PhotoAcoustic Technology (PTP). PTP differs to traditional laser skin treatment in Melbourne, as the laser frequency fires targeted energy at such an intense frequency that the molecules vibrate and shatter.
This ‘shattering’ reaction pushes targeted, pigmented pieces up and out of the skin pores, forcing them to be absorbed by the lymphatic system in the skin. This can result in fading of the targeted pigmented skin spot. One look at RevLite laser before and after photos will testify to this technology’s potential as an effective laser skin treatment.

The DOC Clinic offers Dermapen hyperpigmentation treatment to Melbourne patients seeking safe, effective and non-invasive skin rejuvenation. Popularity of the Dermapen in Australia continues to grow as more and more people realise the benefits of this quick, effective and comfortable treatment.
Skin needling for pigmentation uses multiple small needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. These micro wounds stimulate the skin’s natural healing processes, boosting collagen production and helping to improve the appearance of a range of skin conditions.
Cutera Laser Treatments
We also offer Cutera Laser Genesis treatment (with the Cutera XEO) and Cutera Limelight skin treatment.
The Cutera Limelight laser is a very popular all-in-one, non invasive facial treatment designed to reduce the effects of sun damage. It uses IPL for skin pigmentation treatment and can treat issues like redness, sun spots, large pores and tiny veins. While it is capable of treating most skin tones, it is not usually used for darker skin. The DOC Clinic offers alternatives that are better suited to darker skin tones, including the Revlite laser and Laser Genesis.
When it comes to IPL for age spots treatment, the Cutera Limelight skin treatment is the preferred procedure for the removal of lighter-brown sun spots. It can be effective on red and brown skin discolouration as well as sun damage.
