PIGMENTED LESIONS TREATMENT
TOO MUCH FUN IN THE SUN?
Laser treatments are one of the most advanced treatments for removing unwanted pigmentation on the skin. Pigmented lesions which tend to be brown or black in color are caused by an excess number of pigment producing cells in the skin known as melanocytes. When stimulated by hormonal changes or exposure to ultraviolet light, the melanocytes produce large amounts of melanin resulting in dark discolorations of the skin. Age spots, freckles, melasma, and blue and black birthmarks known as congenital nevi are common examples of these changes in the skin. The use of a pigment removal laser such as the Alexandrite laser often provides the most effective treatment option, giving you a revitalized, younger appearance.

SKIN CONDITIONS TREATED
With our Medical Grade machines, we can treat all dark spots, including:
- Sun Spots
- Age spots
- Flat pigmented birthmarks
Age spots are also known as sun spots, liver spots, lentigos or lentigines. These skin discolorations are typically brown and flat. They appear on areas of the skin commonly exposed to the sun such as the hands, forearms, neck, chest, and face.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Alexandrite 755nm produces a wavelength of high energy light, which is then converted into heat energy. This can target the specific area of pigmentation because the laser is absorbed only by cells containing an excessive concentration of pigmentation. This causes efficient destruction while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
Laser treatments are the fastest and most effective treatments available for dark spots. The number of sessions needed depends on the type of pigmentation but most clients are satisfied with 2-3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.
