Lentigines – flat, brown spots on the skin; present on skin with frequent sun exposure
Keratoses – slightly elevated pigmented spots often found on the back and hands
Freckles – brownish spots on the skin; common on people with fair skin
Dermatosis Papulosis Nigra – small, black marks seen primarily on people of Asian or African descent
How does the laser work?
A laser generates an intense beam of light. This beam brings energy to a specific site, through a small hand piece connected to the laser console.
The laser light is absorbed by oxyhemoglobin (bright red blood cells carrying oxygen) and melanin/pigment (black or brown pigment founding the skin) causing decomposition or destruction by heat of unwanted cells while leaving healthy cells intact.
What are the benefits of laser treatment?
Excellent and consistent outcome – minimal to no discoloration, swelling or complications
Friendly and gentle treatment – typically performed without anesthesia or pain
Simple treatment – minimal care before and after treatment
What is a vascular lesion?
A vascular lesion is formed by abnormally large or numerous blood vessels located directly under the surface of the skin. These vessels may be visible through the skin or result in a red appearance of the skin, Spider Angiomas are examples of vascular lesions.
What is a pigmented lesion?
Melanin is the dark pigment present in skin and is produced by melanocytes. Pigmented lesions occur when an abundance of melanocytes are found in the skin. When dark pigment multiplies, it forms freckles, brown age spots and moles. Lentigines are an example of a pigmented lesion.
