These common and unsightly pigmented lesions and uneven brown pigmentation, whether it be from melasma or sun damage, can be successfully removed with laser technology. We use a combination of lasers (Nd:YAG, and Alexandrite, and Ruby) to achieve maximum results for pigmented skin problems. These lasers have been in use since the late 1980’s for the treatment of pigmented skin blemishes and birthmarks and use visible light (green and red) that is selectively absorbed by the pigment within the unwanted blemishes. The laser light is then transferred to heat and the pigmented target is eliminated without harm to the normal surrounding skin. Treatments feel like a rubber band snap and leave a temporary discoloration of the skin that lasts a few days. If more than one treatment is needed, it can be repeated after 4-6 weeks.
