What are Pigmented Lesions
and Birthmarks?

Pigmented lesions stem from a variety of natural and environmental factors, such as sun damage, genetic makeup, and the aging process. They can also appear as side effects of certain medical treatments. Pigmented lesions can vary in size, shape, and frequency across different skin areas and include age spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation, actinic keratosis, pigment-related birthmarks, and pigmented nevi.

The treatment for pigmented lesions operates on the principle of selective photothermolysis. The correct wavelength of light zeroes in on pigment, transforming the light energy into heat that shatters pigment particles. Surrounding tissue remains undamaged. To maximize results, multiple sessions are usually required.

When targeting birthmarks, precise energy breaks up the pigment or vascular tissue so your body can naturally eliminate it. Treatment complexity can vary, depending on factors like your skin tone and birthmark size. While treating darker skin tones poses challenges, expert application using a high-quality device can yield positive results.

Treatment Options

  • Specialized laser treatments such as Clarity II™, DermaV, eCo2, Hollywood Spectra, and LaseMD Ultra
  • Light-based therapies
  • Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion

Common Questions Answered:

Laser energy targets your skin's pigment, fragmenting it for natural elimination by your body. Multiple sessions might be necessary for thorough pigment removal.

Pinpoint energy disperses the birthmark's pigment or vascular tissue, which your body then naturally removes. Effectiveness can depend on individual factors like skin color and birthmark size.

Though treating darker skin tones can be challenging, expert use of high-quality devices can produce remarkable results.

Practitioners can fine-tune treatment parameters such as fluence, pulse width, and repetition rate to optimize energy delivery and minimize any discomfort you might feel.

Treating darker skin tones is more challenging due to the higher concentration of melanin as a competing chromophore. In these cases, treatment may be prohibitively painful or cause a burning sensation.
