Black/ Dark Spots Laser Removal 

Black or dark spots on the skin can be a common cosmetic concern for many people. They can have various causes, including hyperpigmentation, age spots, acne scars, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Common Causes of Black/ Dark Spots on the body

Black or dark spots on the skin can have several different causes, including:

  • Hyperpigmentation: This is a common condition in which the skin produces too much melanin, resulting in areas of darker skin.
  • Age spots: These are also known as liver spots or solar lentigines. They are small, dark areas of skin that typically appear on areas of the body that have been exposed to the sun.
  • Acne scars: When acne lesions heal, they can leave behind dark spots or discoloration on the skin.
  • Melasma: a skin condition that causes brown or gray-brown patches on the face, particularly on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin. It typically appears on both sides of the face and is more common in women than in men. The exact cause of melasma is unknown, but it is believed to be related to hormonal changes, sun exposure, and genetics.
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation: This is a type of hyperpigmentation that can occur after an injury, such as a cut or burn, or after a skin condition such as acne or eczema.

Treatment options for black or dark spots on the skin depend on the cause of the spots. In some cases, they may fade on their own over time, but there are also treatments available, such as topical creams, chemical peels, and laser therapy. It’s important to consult a professional to determine the cause of the spots and the most appropriate treatment.


Schedule Appointment

Disclaimer: This is not a confirmed schedule, details provided will aid our specialists in planning a convenient time schedule that favours both parties when they get in touch with you for clarification.

What should you Expect during the Black Spot Laser Treatment procedure

Here is a general overview of the treatment process:

  • Preparation: At Rebel Inks Tattoo Kenya, we will first clean the treatment area and apply a topical anesthetic to numb the skin and reduce any discomfort during the procedure.
  • Laser treatment: Once the skin is numb, we will use a handheld laser device to target the dark spots. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by the melanin in the dark spot, causing it to break down and disperse.
  • Sensations during the treatment: During the treatment, you may feel a snapping or tingling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin. Some people describe the sensation as feeling like a rubber band snapping against the skin.
  • Duration of the treatment: The duration of the treatment depends on the size and number of the dark spots being treated. Typically, the procedure takes around 30 minutes or less to complete.
  • Post-treatment: After the procedure, we may apply a soothing cream or ointment to the treatment area to help reduce any redness, swelling, or discomfort. You may experience some scabbing or crusting in the treated area, which is a normal part of the healing process.
  • Follow-up appointments: You may need to schedule follow-up appointments with us to monitor your progress and determine if additional treatments are necessary.

Overall, laser black spot removal treatment is a relatively simple and non-invasive procedure that can effectively remove unwanted pigmentation on the skin. At Rebel Inks Tattoo Kenya we will work with you to determine the best course of treatment based on your skin type and condition, and provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your skin after the procedure.


How to Prepare for the Black Spot Laser Treatment Procedure

If you’re considering laser black spot removal treatment, it’s important to prepare yourself for the procedure to ensure the best possible outcome. Here are some steps you can take to prepare for the treatment:

  • Consult with a professional: Before undergoing any cosmetic procedure, it’s important to consult with a dermatologist who can evaluate your skin type and condition, discuss the treatment options, and determine if laser black spot removal treatment is suitable for you.
  • Avoid sun exposure: In the weeks leading up to the treatment, avoid excessive sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to protect your skin from further damage.
  • Avoid certain skincare products: Certain skincare products, such as retinoids and exfoliants, can make your skin more sensitive to the laser. Avoid using these products for at least a week before the treatment.
  • Avoid certain medications: Some medications, such as blood thinners, can increase the risk of bleeding during the procedure. Inform your dermatologist of any medications you’re taking and follow their instructions regarding whether or not to stop taking them before the treatment.
  • Arrive with a clean face: On the day of the treatment, arrive with a clean face, free of makeup, lotions, and skincare products.
  • Wear comfortable clothing: Wear comfortable clothing that allows easy access to the treatment area.
  • Follow aftercare instructions: After the treatment, your dermatologist will provide you with specific aftercare instructions, such as avoiding sun exposure and using a moisturizer and sunscreen. Follow these instructions carefully to ensure optimal healing and results.

By following these steps, you can help ensure a successful laser black spot removal treatment and minimize the risk of complications.

How does the Laser Black Spot Removal Treatment Work

Laser black spot removal treatment uses high-energy light beams to target and remove unwanted pigmentation on the skin. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by the melanin in the dark spot, causing the melanin to break down and disperse. The body’s immune system then removes the dispersed melanin, gradually lightening or removing the dark spot.

The procedure usually involves a series of treatments, depending on the severity of the dark spots and the patient’s skin type. Each session typically takes between 10-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. The treatment is generally well-tolerated, and most patients describe the sensation as feeling like a rubber band snapping against the skin.

After the treatment, the treated area may be red and swollen for a few hours, and the dark spots may appear darker and scab over before eventually falling off. It’s important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the dermatologist, which may include avoiding sun exposure and using a moisturizer and sunscreen.

Laser black spot removal treatment can be an effective way to remove unwanted pigmentation on the skin, but it’s important to consult a dermatologist to determine if the treatment is suitable for your skin type and condition.


What to expect after the Black Spot Laser Treatment Procedure

After the black spot laser treatment, it’s important to take care of your skin to ensure optimal healing and results. Here are some things you can expect and tips for post-treatment care:

  • Redness and swelling: You may experience some redness and swelling in the treated area immediately following the treatment. This is a normal reaction and should subside within a few hours or days.
  • Darkening and crusting: The treated areas may appear darker and develop a scab or crust, which is also normal. The dark spots will gradually lighten and the crusts will fall off over time.
  • Sun sensitivity: After the treatment, your skin may be more sensitive to the sun, so it’s important to avoid sun exposure and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher when going outside.
  • Moisturize: Apply a gentle moisturizer to the treated area as instructed by your dermatologist to help soothe and hydrate the skin.
  • Avoid certain products and activities: Avoid using any harsh skincare products or exfoliants on the treated area until it has fully healed. Also, avoid activities that could cause excessive sweating or rubbing of the treated area.
  • Follow-up appointments: Your dermatologist may schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor your progress and determine if additional treatments are necessary.

Overall, the recovery process after laser black spot removal treatment is relatively quick and straightforward. With proper care and follow-up appointments, you can expect to see a significant improvement in the appearance of your skin.

My experience at Rebel Inks was exceptional. It was my first time getting a piercing, and I was understandably nervous. However, Eric, the piercer, was reassuring and professional. He explained the earlobe piercing process in detail and answered all of my questions before beginning.I was particularly impressed with Eric's attention to hygiene. He thoroughly cleaned the room before I entered, sanitized all of the equipment he would be using, and changed gloves between each ear. This level of cleanliness gave me great confidence in his professionalism.Eric's commitment to customer service did not end on the day of the piercing. He followed up with me regularly throughout the healing process to ensure that I was following the aftercare instructions and that my earlobes were healing properly.I highly recommend Rebel Inks to anyone in Nairobi who is considering getting a piercing. Eric is a highly skilled and experienced piercer who takes great pride in his work.

I got my belly button piercing from Eric. I have had 2 piercings done before and I've never received service as good as his. He explained the piercing and after care processes in detail and was very patient with my many questions...I'm considering paying him school fees 😂. His hygiene standards are very high and he used a disposable sterilized needle. He followed up on my healing progress weekly...I felt like we were healing together 😅. I wish it was possible to give 10 stars. I'm definitely having my future piercings done with him and I'm recommending him to all my friends 😃

Got my upper ear piercing done and my experience was fabulous. I highly appreciate the professionalism shown by Eric. He made sure I was made aware of the process before he started the work. He also explained me the healing process and the complications which was actually great to know as most places do not care to talk about the work in so much detail.The place is neat and clean and the equipments he used were also fine standards. Really appreciate his following up with me on the healing 🤗

I first went through their website to engage more on their services. I was particularly interested in the nose ring service. The communication from the day I made an appointment was very professional as well as the services offered. Eric explained in great detail the step by step procedure and was very patient with our questions. He administered effective hygiene and even let my friend record a video of the procedure. The after care followup is also great as Eric keeps checking up on the healing process on a weekly basis as well as giving additional guidance on the after care.I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEIR SERVICES to everyone. Actually what you see on their website is EXACTLY what you will get. Keep up the good work Rebel inks Tattoos.

I went to Eric for the first time to get help with an earring infection I couldn’t get rid of for months. I quickly got an appointment. He took time to listen to my concerns and previous treatments. He then recommended we try a different approach, changing the piercing and treating it as it was fresh. He gave great advise on how to clean and which care products to use. Throughout the whole session he was very friendly, considerate and knowledgeable. The weeks after he was checking in on how the piercing was doing.The infection is now gone. I would definitely recommend!

I got my ears pierced and the whole procedure was more than great. The space was very clean and time was taken to chose the right spot. He took his time to clean up after and we had a nice talk, too with many helpful information on cleaning and sanitizing the new Piercings. Even after we were done there was a weekly follow up on our healing process.Can recommend this place totally and would go back there anytime!Thanks!

I was so pleased with the service I got. I received a septum piercing from Eric and based on my experience with him, I wouldn't trust anyone else with any other piercings that I might get. He's very sanitary and walks you through the entire process making you feel comfortable and at ease. He also follows up on his clients concerning after care and is very easy to talk to. I would definitely refer anyone looking for to get a piercing, tattoo or tattoo removal here!
