Pigmentation

What is pigmentation?

Most common pigmented lesions are freckles, age spots, liver spots, hyperpigmentation, actinic keratosis and pigmented nevi.
They normally contain very high concentrations of melanin (pigment) and can be caused by too much sun, aging, genetics or injury.

How does the treatment work?

The green light from the Dual Yellow laser targets the melanin, which is the principle component in the lesion. Surrounding tissue remains undamaged.
You will see immediate change and in some cases the lesion will darken slightly, which is perfectly normal.
The pigment will then gradually come away over the following week. This method causes no damages to surrounding tissue and you avoid invasive procedures such as surgical removal or freezing.
