LASER TREATMENT OF PIGMENTED LESIONS
Pigmented lesions are darker areas of the skin caused by production of excess melanin in skin cells. Some pigmented lesions are present at birth, such as birthmarks while some are acquired over time, such as sunspots.
The Q-Switched ND YAG laser works by targeting specific pigment in the skin, which specifically targets the damaged skin cells in the treatment area. The typical patient will need several treatments to achieve the optimal outcome. The number of treatments will depend on the specific issue you are looking at and the size of the lesion.
The interested area will be numbded using a topical anesthetic cream to reduce any discomfort. The physician will guide the laser across the treatment area delivering powerful bursts of energy to break down pigment.
After the procedure, you may notice redness and swelling at the treatment area. Over the next few days, you may notice some crusting at the treatment site, as the skin begins to heal. To reduce the chances of scarring, it is important to let the scab heal on its own, without attempting to remove it.
