Eliminate Sunspots, Birthmarks, and Other Pigmented Lesions with Laser Treatments
posted on 2/28/2013
The phrase "pigmented lesions" refer to many different skin conditions, commonly known as freckles, age spots, liver spots, sun spots, moles, birthmarks, scars, etc. It is important to have a basic understanding of how laser skin resurfacing treatments can be used to treat these conditions.
There are various types of lasers, which are attracted to specifically targeted areas in the skin. The wavelength determines the laser used. The target for the laser with these types of pigmented lesions are lasers attracted to the melanin (pigment) in the skin. Interacting w the pigment lesion, thermal energy breaks apart the cells that contain melanocytes. Melanocytes are cells that produce melanin which is a substance that gives the skin and hair color. Even though the treatment is short, the process of fading the pigment continues for several weeks. Repeated laser treatments remove and replace the cells containing the pigment in the sunspots, tattoos, or birthmarks with cells that do not contain the pigment. Laser treatments can eliminate unwanted brown spots for good.
Traditional treatments like topical bleaching agents or freezing methods often produce only temporary results.
