Pigmented Lesion Treatment
Laser treatment can remove the imperfections caused by a wide variety of benign pigmented lesions. Take this opportunity to discover the positive effects laser therapy can have on your physical appearance… as well as on your state of mind.
Cynosure lasers are safe and effective on all skin types. Here are some examples of the type of results you can expect:
How does laser treatment work?
Selective absorption of laser light pulses by melanin-containing skin cells causes the targeted cells to scatter and degenerate while significantly decreasing potential damage to surrounding tissues. The dead cells are then removed from the skin by the body’s immune or lymphatic system.
Are there any side effects to treatment?
Overall, treatments are gentle and mild, causing only slight discomfort with minimal side effects.
How many treatments are required?
The number of required treatments is dependent on such factors as lesion depth and size. However, most people with dermal lesions need five to six treatments and begin seeing results after only one or two sessions.
Is any recovery time needed between treatment sessions?
Although treatment sessions are scheduled approximately four to six weeks apart, no rest or recuperation time is required after each visit. You will immediately be able to resume normal activities without restriction.
Am I a candidate for pigmented lesion treatment?
Typically found on the face, shoulders and other exposed parts of the body, benign pigmented lesions include everything from bluish/purplish, black or otherwise discolored spots to freckles and sun-damaged skin areas. If you have any such benign conditions, chances are you’re a candidate for treatment.
