The most common pigmented lesions are freckles, age spots and liver spots. They normally contain very high concentrations of melanin (pigment) and can be caused by too much sun, aging, genetics or injury.
The green light from the Dual Yellow laser targets the melanin, which is the principle component in the lesion. 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 damage to surrounding tissue and you avoid invasive procedures such as surgical removal or freezing.
How many treatments are required?
You need to consult with your clinician for an exact treatment plan. Generally, only one treatment is required.
