• The best solution for multiple lesions (spots)
With minimal side effects.
Q-switched and Picosecond Lasers are the treatment of choice for most brown spots
Laser treatment is still the option that offers the most effective results. In this safe procedure, the patient wears protective glasses while a laser beam is directed through a handled stylus to the problem area. The laser's energy destroys the excess pigment (spots), resulting in the growth of a new, unblemished layer of skin. Following treatment, the skin must absolutely be protected from the sun. Healing generally takes about a week.
