1) How does laser help in lighten the nipples?
The colour of the nipples can be lightened by Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. The works by fragmenting the melanin pigmentation in the skin. The shattered pigments are eliminated by our body’s immune system.
2) How fast can I see the result?
You can start to appreciate the difference after the 1st treatment. You will likely need few treatments, performed every 4-6 weeks, until the desired lightening effect has been achieved.
3) Is there any discomfort during the treatment?
Most of our clients describe the feeling as “mildly tickly” when laser beams touch the skin. As the areas treated are perceived as rather private to some clients, you can choose to have the procedure done by one of our female doctors when available.
4) Are there any other side effects?
You may feel dryness for 2 days followed by mild peeling. Other common reactions to the laser include pinpoint redness, mild swelling and itchiness. This can be addressed by ointment prescribed by our doctors.
