By exposing a pigmented lesion to short-pulses of visible light, the temperature in the highly concentrated melanin can be raised sharply; enough to shatter the cells containing the melanin. The body then replaces these cells with new cells generated by the surrounding, untreated area. The Laser can treat the following;
Brown age spots (also called liver spots or solar lentigines) are pigment accumulations in the upper layer of the skin due to sun exposure. They occur on the face, neck, chest and back as well as forearms and hands.
Freckles (epithelides) are small spots of concentrated pigment stimulated by the sun that remain in stable locations on sun exposed areas.
