Laser Treatment of Pigmented Spots
What to Know About Laser Treatment of Pigmented Spots
With this effective laser treatment, the skin rapidly absorbs the laser’s light energy, vaporizing the unwanted melanin and lightening pigment. Patients can expect crusting of the affected area after the treatment, which should resolve within one to two weeks. Redness immediately after the treatment is typical, or at times a purpuric reaction.
