Treatments for Skin Sun Damage and Skin Pigmentation

in Edinburgh

With dark spots and pigmentation caused by the sun I tend to tackle it with a course of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment. Hitting the skin with multiple wavelengths of light, it heats up the pigment in the skin, ultimately breaking it down to be removed from the skin naturally. Mesotherapy also delivers fantastic results with sun damage thanks to a specific cocktail of brightening ingredients including Vitamin C that is delivered directly into areas of pigmentation.

For those with hormone-related pigmentation such as melasma, and for those on Skincare Journeys, I tend to combine IPL with Me:Line treatment – a skincare regime consisting of peels and at home products created specifically to stop pigmentation production – alongside freehand microneedling that shatters the existing pigment in the skin.

Elizabeth’s treatments are available on their own or as part of a bespoke skincare journey


1. Your Consultation

Every Elizabeth M skincare journey starts with an hour-long new client consultation. During this appointment Liz will examine your skin and have an in-depth discussion about your challenges and goals.

Consultations can be booked as standalone appointments or in conjunction with an introductory facial. In addition, all clients will leave with a skincare prescription and a treatment plan.


2. Your Introduction

Whilst everyone’s skin is different, and as such no two treatment plans will be the same, all Elizabeth M skincare journeys begin with an intensive series of introductory appointments. Liz will often see or speak to you multiple times a week during this phase in order to get your skin on the right track. She also likes to see how it responds to different products and treatments. At this point Liz will supply you with all the products and supplements needed for your personalised at-home regime. It’s at this stage she may also refer you to complimentary therapists if extra support is needed for your skincare journey.


3. Your Transformation

Once your skincare journey is underway Liz will see you as often as your treatment plan dictates. As skincare journeys are highly personal – and may also be tweaked as they progress – this will vary from month to month and from face to face. However, all clients can look forward to a minimum of two 90-minute bespoke facials per month. Liz remains on call for clients during her business hours throughout this time and will also be on hand to refill skincare prescriptions as required.
