Darkening of the lips is very common and is a typically harmless condition. This is caused by an excess of melanin and can be the result of hyperpigmentation. If you’re noticing that your lips have darkened over the years, this is because age, genetics, smoking and the sun can cause pigmentation. Thankfully, we provide a simple solution to correct dark lips with Laser Lip Bleaching.
WHAT IS LASER LIP BLEACHING?
Laser is an effective treatment to lighten the vermillion border of the lips and treat discoloured lips. The heat energy of the laser targets the melanin deposits in your lips and helps reduce pigmentation on the lip area, which results in a more even, brighter and pinkier lip tone. We offer a minimally invasive, highly effective Laser Lip Bleaching Treatment and within a few sessions, you will notice significant results.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
This laser treatment can help to reduce the hyperactivity of melanocytes naturally, in order to control excess pigmentation. It uses the 1064nm wavelengths, lower energy level and multi-passes technique to remove the pigment effectively. The laser energy will selectively target and break down the melanin, allowing our immune system to remove them naturally.

Do you give 100% guarantee?
No doctor can give 100% guarantee that the treatment or surgery would be beneficial for the patient. For that matter, no guarantee is given by any doctor or surgeon that the patient would be "cured".
Anyone considering a cosmetic procedure should ensure they are informed enough to understand the limitations and risks of any procedure. Remember, no procedure is 100% risk free and no surgeon can give a 100% guarantee of the results.
The only assurance which a doctor can give or can be understood to have given by implication is that he is possessed of the requisite skill in that branch of profession which he is practicing and while undertaking the performance of the task entrusted to him he would be exercising his skill with reasonable competence.
Unless the circumstances are exceptional, it is advisable to avoid surgery if you have recently experienced major life events such as moving house, changing job, losing a loved one, the break-up of a relationship or the arrival of children. Undergoing cosmetic surgery results in emotional changes as well as physical ones, so it’s wise to choose a time when there aren’t other stressful events going on in your life.
How many sessions do I require?
The healthier your skin/hair are when starting out, the easier it will take the treatment. The sessions must be spaced to allow adequate healing in between. Skin/Hair that are healthy enough to regenerate fairly quickly will be able to endure more sessions of a treatment in a shorter period of time.
While these aren’t the only factors involved, they are the most common. Don’t be surprised, however, if your doctor mentions another situation that could impact the length and/or number of sessions you may require. Every person is different, and your circumstances will be unique only to YOU.
