If you’re one of the many individuals who feels insecure about one or many brown spots known as pigmented lesions on their skin, then laser treatment may be right for you. Pigmented lesions can be found anywhere on the face, neck and even the hands. Birthmarks, freckles, age spots and liver spots can all be categorized as pigmented lesions. They are generally dark in color due to the concentrated amount of melanin in one specific area of the skin. Melanin is a pigment that gives our skin it’s distinct color and each individual has varying amounts of melanin in their skin, resulted in lighter or darker complexions.
Our modern laser technology is an excellent, non-surgical way to lighten or remove these unwanted pigmented lesions. The laser delivers the energy of light which turns to heat and is absorbed by the melanin causing only the damaged cells to become destroyed. As a result, the skin of the pigmented area is left looking lighter and lesion free while the surrounding skin remains healthy and unmarked.
